Recently, I got a chance to visit Boston. The reason : My work (the Parallel Compositing Library) was selected to be presented at HP TechCon 08. This is an annual company internal technical conference. The acceptance rate is about 10%, so acceptance is a matter of some prestige 🙂 It's definitely one of the highlights of my employment in HP.
Boston seems to be a favourite among bikers. Everybody whom I spoke to regarding my visit to Boston strongly recommended I take some time to ride around.
Why? I had posted them based on my experiences, and to raise awareness about issues. And I believe the posts fulfilled their objective. They were not intended to be a forum to support firefox, problems with their bikes, which bike is suitable for you to buy, etc etc. It's frankly becoming a pain for me to manage these threads, which are much deviating from their original purpose. So instead of spending time moderating threads, I've decided to close these.
If you are interested in cycling, or are looking around for people to ride with, want to ask questions related to cycles and cycling, then please consider joining a cycling forum like BikesZone Cycling Forum. Of course, I am open to questions too (look at the About page for contact info).
Finally, thanks to all those who read & posted comments !
