You can always step back to a previous edit if shit gets thrown in there. Google is good like that.

If someone on here did it, I'd probably like it. Since it was done by someone I don't know, they're a fucking idiot.

Obama tapped our internet wires? Assange leaked our database?

This is bad (sick) Watergate level.

If you tell an interviewer that you're an "excel guru" they will hire you. If you know how to google it's not a lie.

I once wrote a really complicated formula to calculate annualized refrigerant leak rates. Even though I googled most of it, I was really proud of it.

When Drupal finally decides to eat itself we should just run Tarck in Google Sheets. One tab for each thread (we could probably get by with 10 topics), just add a comment to each line. There's probably some way in Appscript to lock rows as they get filled in.

I'm pleased to see the approved doc gradually descending into the unique combination of final judgement and ultimate lack of clarity/certainty that is tarck.

The lack of clarity/certainty is why I keep coming back. If we were decided on anything, this well would run dry real fast.

Fact: I took an introductory 3d graphics class where all the calculation and final rendering happened in excel spreadsheets.

how long until we're all on 700c radlawns with velocity rims, gatorskins, thomson everything, rear racks/panniers, ergo bars, and retroshift?
and will that come before the resurgence of FGFS?

I added a new sheet called Tarck Down!! Discuss.
The idea is that when Tarck is down we now have a place to talk, rather than going to dentistforums or whatever.

Not sure how it might actually work in practice. Maybe each column is it's own thread with comments in response added below?

Feel free to delete this sheet if it is shiting up the DB too much.

There's a FB group for which the entire purpose is complaining about tarck being down.

Not dense, you're right. I added two data types (drop levers and flatbar levers) to the brake sheet and an example lever entry.

Oh man, I was wondering why tarck was down all the time. I thought it was just me.

Not worth FBook, though. Sometimes the motivation provided by tarck being down is exactly what my day needed

FWIW some (most?) of their frames are threadless.

We were talking about Crust at the shop the other day and couldn't decide if we were supposed to love it or hate it. They've got some BFA lookin' frames but their design aesthetics make them look like a bunch of idiot clown turd babies.

It'd be interesting to build up one of their low q fat bikes to see what kind of compromises they had to make.

I think the fact that no one on tarck has one or even actively wants one sort of speaks volumes.

One of our local celebritymessbrogals has hitched her wagon to the crust train. Her incessant insta-stream of #outsideisfreeandimridingmybikethere posts is enough to make me hate crust.
Actually, not sure why I still follow her.

True. It didn't start like that, she was touring thru India and Europe when I started following her. I think the loathing only developed after I met her on a ride.

I was specifically talking about the low-trail dick brakes bike, the Romanceur, which checked all the Tarck boxes except for being threadless.

What's really funny is that some millennial dirtbags managed to take crust punk bikes and turn it into an LLC.

TC: I like the Crust bikes but I don't really get the overall brand aesthetic. If they all just came in Surly color and had decals that said "BIKE" I'd probably be 1000% on board.
