1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    Steve

    "The most common ways to represent these times are, (a) to use a 24-hour clock (00:00 and 12:00, 24:00), (b) to use "12 noon" or "12 midnight", although unless the person is referring to a general time and not a specific day, "12 midnight" is still ambiguous, (c) to specify it between two successive days or dates (Midnight Saturday/Sunday or Midnight December 14/15), and (d) to use "12:01 a.m." or "11:59 p.m."" (From Wikipedia)

    This solves the question. Midnight belongs to neither day on either side of it, the days must be specified where that instant of time occurs. So all is good. Tuesday midnight could be between Monday/Tuesday OR between Tuesday/ Wednesday. If not specified, either may be used.

    That's only a small portion of the entire definition on Wikipedia. It gets much worse.


    Can't wait to vote.

    Um, why were comments locked out on the finished bikes? I know you need to lock out entries at a certain time, but why can't I comment on them? Plus it looks like some housecleaning is in order, I see somebody powder-coated their bike, a clear no-no. :roll:
