Have you ever wanted to be periodically reminded of something in Emacs
in an intrusive way? Perhaps, something like
for Emacs? Maybe you want to print a (de)motivational message every few
hours, or run some 1337-elisp to update your iWatch’s NTP server.
Jim & I went to Gabriel and Tigard skateparks for the first time yesterday and had a blast! Gabriel is surprisingly fun – you can pump it and rip around easily, and the walls outside the bowl are quite fun to jib on too.
We arrived at Tigard past dusk, so we were limited in our exploration, but we still had a good time pumping bowls and fumbling fastplants. Definitely going to head back when we can actually see what we’re riding.
I painstakingly edited a few clips together and produced the following video. Video editing on Linux: even less fun than photo editing. I’m on my green/yellow Norco (brakeless) and Jim is on his lavender Deity:
First real ride on my 20" post-shoulder injury! No suspension is a little rough, but the spine-to-vert wall is so much fun that a little soreness is worth it.
Here are a few clips from riding my Norco around downtown Portland (primarily the Waterfront and Esplanade):
This is the most fun long-and-low
found in Portland so far.
Uma made a sweet Instagram video of one of my favorite things: the pumptrack at the Lumberyard.
JMD showing the kids how it's done on the pump track @lumberyardmtb—the best air conditioned activity in Portland! The 'yard is closed July 4th because 'Murika, Eff Yeah! But they'll be open to fuel—and cool—your pump track riding tomorrow. ;-) @jmdeldin #pumped #pumptrack #jumpline #jumpjam #ride #ridemore #mtb #bmx #happyplace #shredfilter #makeawesomehappen
Shaun and I were riding doubles through the blue line, and I took the high corner, but my wheel slid out, nearly crashing into him and destroying myself. Thankfully, the automatic camera caught this photo of both of us casing post-disaster-avoidance:
Levi harangued me into a 20-second Tuesday at the Lumberyard (video forthcoming) and convinced me this was a good idea. It’s pretty weird, as you’re spinning before you clear the lip. Thanks to Levi, Henry, and Silas' encouragement, I landed it after a few tries.
Recovering from a sprained AC-joint means no hopping and jumping, but pumping seems to work pretty well:
Chris and I went to the Lumberyard for a little session. Unfortunately, it ended with me clipping my right shoulder on the lip of a ramp, so I am in a sling for a few weeks due to an AC-joint sprain.
Ah, the inaugural “Hello, World” post. It’s a holiday weekend, and I have finally run out of excuses for not maintaining a blog. So, here we are.
