Did someone make an open source Nitix (albeit stripped down of its actual services, more like the Lotus Foundation that now survive, I guess) while I wasn't looking?

If so, that's kind of hilarious, in that perverted way.

Yep, it was pretty clear to me that we (well, credit where credit is due, mostly Avery) were onto the right idea with the image-based Nitix system. Really, iOS is based around the same basic idea as well (image-based core os, "apps" run in a highly restricted chroot). I suspect it'll take a few more years for the rest of the world to realize this, but the days of package-based Linux distributions are IMO numbered. They're a nightmare to QA and properly maintain.

The Ride4Pie happened, at the eleventh hour! +Jody McIntyre kicked me in the ass, and so we headed out: http://www.strava.com/activities/91766151

I got four apple pies (with "sucre à la crème", of course!) and an apple crumble.

The shop was pretty much wiped out after our visit, just a few apple turnovers left...

I should use this as my alarm clock sound, it seems to work. Yay for cars shaped like a shoe!

Considering how deep I sleep, that seems to work just fine for me. Especially the overrun when shifting. :-)

I was thinking relative to the Boxster in the article, which is $17,750 for a car that was 60% more expensive new, in the same model year.

The S2000 only has 10 fewer HP than that Boxster, and one or two hundred kilograms lighter, so it sounds like they can get you in similar amounts of trouble. ;-)

KBB seems to agree on that particular S2000 being a bit overpriced, but having a clean one, of a more rare (and desirable colour), that can factor in by that much, I think:

I'm having crazy thoughts again... Thinking a Noble M600 is really what I want, but that this would do very well. VERY VERY WELL.

+Cleopatra Von Ludwig, I blame you! It's all your fault!

Nice ride with +Peter Colijn, +Yvonne Yip, and +James deBoer on the new SFBC Winterfest bike! Finally got it, after buying in December 2012... :-)

"A casual observer might think the S2000 was simply Honda's way of moving into Miata territory. This assumption is wrong. It was more like the Miata's psychotic axe murderer cousin who just escaped from prison and has a long list of police officers, prosecutors and ex-girlfriends it needs to take revenge on."

A future classic indeed!

Which reminds me I should try to bend time and space to visit +Cleopatra Von Ludwig and try out her little marvel! ;-)

You should! I'll give you the keys and point you to the best canyon roads -- it'll be my belated birthday present to you. :)

I love the quote -- Tricksy definitely rides like a psychotic axe murderer ! :)

Those were the best scrambled eggs I've ever had! Excellent coffee, as well.

This is the real deal, and a great exhibit. The small hatches and steep stairs can be tricky (do not take a large bag with you, for example!), but it gave a good idea of how living aboard a battleship could be.

That was quite lovely, honest Italian food.
