Back to or regularly scheduled programming…


I suppose I need to find ways to backup my entire blog (YEARS worth).  I don’t see  way to get all the images I have stored on Picassa backed up in total and in order so I’m going to have to trust to the gods on that one.

It this blog does in fact disappear I WILL RETURN in some capacity (and likely with a slightly altered name) but it will likely be on another blog host like wordpress or tumbler etc.. but for now I’ll ride this pony as far as it’ll go.

It must be a curse.  I was actually bragging to a friend about the reliability of blogger/google yesterday.  Go figure.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I blame Google. Continuous Update!


Well according to my site meter it started at 5 am and ended this morning when I logged in.  

2nd update:  Apparently I’m one of the lucky ones.  According to this some folks have lost their blogs completely and since they are legitimate businesses they have lost significant revenue for the holidays!  Poor bastards.

Update:  Well apparently it’s not anything major. After doing some searching I’ve found a few references to this and it’s not all that uncommon for google to pull this on people.  LOTS of speculation as to why but nothing concrete.

Here’s a link to another fellow who had a similar (but not identical) thing happen.  Damm frustrating and very freaking scary!  Now I get to go change all my passwords everywhere.  Oh Joy!  Thanks a lot google.

To those of you who have checked to see my page missing I don’t know what happened  I came in this morning and my G-mail account was disabled and I needed to re-verify all my passwords with a text message verification number.  I’m going to get after google to see what’s going on but for now if you get any e-mails form my address

superduckz@gmail.com

please let me now if it was malicious.  I haven’t sent anything out to anyone since yesterday evening (12-22)

Thank You To Formula Moto! Wish I could Read Spanish!


I want to send out a big Thank You to the editors at Fórmula Moto Magazine for including information about this blog in their latest edition. I am very honored!  I’ve said it many times before.  I am amazed how this simple hobby of mine has exploded.  I’m still having a great time with it.  Thank you to everyone for dropping in and sharing your pics with me.

The sent me a notice and a PDF (which I converted here) of the page.

I´m Andrés G. Dorado, spanish journalist, i work in Fórmula Moto, spanish monthly motorbike magazine. In last number (december) I published some photos of your web in the last page of the magazine whose name is “Última página”, it´s a section dedicated to Internet curiosities. I send the pdf of the publication.

Best regards.

The Winter Blues…


Living in Florida the last 30 years I sometimes forget that this is what awaits many of you for the next four or five months… my sincere condolences. But chin up! Time flies and spring will be here before you know it! Besides now you have a good block of time for those bike and bike related projects to get done. So have at it… and while we’re on the subject, send me some pictures of whatever projects you’ve got going on. Might make for some interesting posts!
