You mean City Man without the 'g"?

Yeah, I want to know about his Nat Geo DVD software as well -- does it really take 13 seconds to open the app?

Do you mean "Topo!"?  It does start very slow.  I measure 8 seconds, and that's without accessing any of the detailed map data, only the Level 1 stuff.

Anyway, I wouldn't think that's the topic of interest to Reminiscence. He probably has access to better tools than that.

Yeah, anyone heard from Cityman?  I sent a message last week and haven't heard back.  Haven't seen him hear in a bit, but not sure how long.

Sorry, BL -- I should have been clearer - it's the Complete National Geographic DVD set.  I posted about this a while ago, and I believe City Man purchased a set as well.

Did he have another motorcycle wreck?  He worries me, but I guess he wouldn't be the same City Man if he didn't.

Bike. He does live on the edge.



Posted on: Dec. 12 2012, 9:13 am    
Good morning,

Im feeling bruised, Im feeling blue, here in Old El Paso.  

Kicking back and recovering from a hit and run on my bike.  No not the motorcycle, my bicycle.  Was heading to the store on some back streets and had the miss fortune of meeting some parting young ones, they rear ended my bike at an intersection. Wasnt that bad of a hit but unfortunately I must of hit the pavement just right, broke my right wrist.  Seeing what they had caused they promptly left.  Lucky for them I did no get their license plate number, just was out of it for a moment. Well I guess it is good that it is winter time now, for I think I will be down for a couple of months, for sure.

You all have a great day out there

Wow!  It sounds like it could have been much worse.   Heal fast, City Man!
