Old west style

IMG_0996 It is that time of the year again, time to head on over to Rapelje for that low key 24 hour race. It is more like a rendezvous then a race. Kind of like in the old west when all the fur trappers would meet up and play games.

It is that time of the year again, time to head on over to Rapelje for that low key 24 hour race. It is more like a rendezvous then a race. Kind of like in the old west when all the fur trappers would meet up and play games. This year I am going old west style. That is, without my social media outlet. In the past during all my endurance events I could tweet and post my status to friends and family. During the race I would feel this kind of connection, like there were people watching me, even if there were not. Then after the race at home I could read everyone’s reactions to how it went down. Kind of fun actually.

Just recently I discovered that my posts were no longer showing up. Specially posts from my cell phone. I discovered that ping.fm was not working any longer. The company was recently acquired by Seesmic and it appears that the Seesmic people are what we technology folk call ding-bats or numb-skulls. Why do I need ping.fm … another great injustice. My cell phone company does not support short codes (SMS). If it did then I could tweet directly from my cell device thingy. But Cellular one does not and I can not … twitter. I am twitter-caped.

So I am going old west style and will send smoke signals when I can. Have a great weekend everyone.
