A couple of riders I see on the train use bicycle drive chain looped around the seat rails and through the frame. Rivet it together, then heat up the shrink tubing you slipped over it before driving home the rivet.

I ride my bicycle through the intersection in that image on my way to work every morning. At that time of day I'm in more danger from other bicyclists than from motorized vehicles.

How do people manage their custom domain email addresses? Pay for Google for Work? Pay for IMAP/pop3 and then access it through gmail? Some other service? I'm currently a big fan of Inbox so I would rather not lose that, but I'm open to other options as I'm ready to treat my gmail address as just my google username and not the email address people reach me at.

+Robert Collins​ the domain I want to use is too new. :/

+Elliot Murphy​ thanks for the suggestion

+Gregory P. Smith​ the forwarding is an issue without an SMTP server as gmail won't let you send as that email address otherwise.

I was lucky enough to have a Hertz Gold membership through work, but it was my first time using it which requires going in and verifying my credit card. That was not a problem until things started to go wrong. First the computer the woman helping me froze up, so even though we were practically finished she had to start over. Next, I found out in fact I didn't have a Hertz Gold membership even though I went through the process **twice** online (later on I logged on to the website, went through it a third time and now it claims I have Gold status; we will see if that sticks). Then the car was not the model I was originally told I was going to get (it was the right class, though). Instead of arguing I just took the car I was given. But on my way out I was told that I had **two** rentals listed on my account thanks to the computer freezing up. Luckily everyone was very friendly and I was not in a rush, saving this whole experience from being a total disaster.

Portions are a good size for the price, as is the taste of the food, but I don't think I would wait in a long line.

Food was pretty good for pub fare. While service is friendly, food does not come out of the kitchen promptly, so don't go there if you are starving and can't wait for your appetizer to arrive at your table.
