wonder if Susan Westemeyer will come over and say hi

And why not?  Hi!

Just don't expect me to write much, just like the CN forum, cycling4fans forum etc.  Gotta maintain that ol' journalistic objectivity.....

    I've also come over from the CNForums where I peddle my wares Dopeology.org and Timekeeper Brussels Homestay where folks can come stay at my place and see the Spring Classics.

    Might get a ban now for being mild commercial but at least it's not a banner ad.  ;)

    No offense, but do you really have to have that blatant reference to doping in your signature?

    Yes, unless I hear otherwise. But it's an historical reference website, not a glorification of doping and I designed, built and administer it. :)

    Just dropping in to say hello. My username should provide plenty for now but I must admit that I have a growing concern that cycling, and the interwebz in general, have diverted too much attention away my music over the past few years. Seriously. <looking for the appropriate emoticon for concern & humor but the selection here really is silly>
    Not sure that joining yet another online community is the best solution for that though.

    Also, whatever it takes to eliminate this "couch potato" business will be a strong motivator for upping my post count in the near future.

    I do like the name and logo of the forum here. It's inviting. Some nice user controls as well.

    Thanks!

    I certainly didn't think your site was a glorification of doping, and all credit to you for your efforts! But, that's not my point.

    I'm sure that I'm not the only poster on the other side who avoids the Clinic, and I won't be taking part in doping discussions here either. Why then should I (or anyone else who feels the same) have to see the word 'doping' staring at me every time I see one of your posts?

    Signatures only appear once per page anyway to save bandwith (as we are allowing images in signtures)
    Im sure the mods will decide privately what is allowed in signatures.  :-*

    Now that's a great idea. I don't mind signatures, but it's always annoying to see the same one (especially the large and bright ones) several times per page when a member is having a back n' forth conversation. You're really onto something with the features here, or maybe that just exposes my lack of sophistication with forum software.

    going with a comprimise. People can have images (to a certain height, i think its 60px by about 400 across) or flashy text etc, but balanced by only one per page which makes the pages less of an eyesore (and easier on mobilebrowsing etc)

    Hi, I'm Frank71. Also coming from the CN forum, mainly as a super lurker.

    I stopped regular cycling five years ago (five years and two days to be exact) and intend to start again, eventually.

    Still working on an appropriate avatar.

    Fair enough, but it appears as my sig on CNForum outside the Clinic and you've never complained there before. :) I think it's because the relative text size of the posts here is much smaller than it is on CNForum. I'll suggest upping the size to Dim. If he doesn't want to, I'll diminish my sig just for you. Can't say fairer than that, can I?  8)

    I'm sure that we can reach a compromise like reasonable adults. ;)

    Your sig is far less noticeable in the other place, and I tend to see less of your posts there than I am likely to here. Also, when I first broached this subject I was not aware of the 'one signature per page' tweak here. Changing the relative proportions of either text or signature so that yours becomes less 'eye-popping' would be a splendid solution. Thanks for your understanding!

    I am indeed! Who were you when I still posted there? My last post there was nearly five years ago, when I replied to the condolence topic for my wife.

    The mafioso does not fear a colombian uprising. We encourage other families to have a presence, as long as these people understand who really hold the power on the internetz there is no problem here.

    As for ryo, he could have been great in the dutch mafioso... but he choose a life of exile, failure and dissapointment; to be fair those being the core attributes of a dutchman maybe all is not lost.

    But the Mafioso is stronger then ever, don't let the transparency of our greatness fool you.



    If the Dutch mafia wants to survive on here it needs to find a new angle. The Mollema/ Keldermann/ Gesink/ every other dutch rabo rider, will win all 21 stages in the Tour and only ever lose because they let others win - trope, has had its time.

    No silly outbrain.com advertising stuck in the middle of posts...:-)

    Many thanks to Dim for a new space, and he knows how to use the features available to him, etc, etc. Cheers.

    I am the same old GreasyMonkey from CN Forums. Australian, resident in Madrid , my rides are Mondonico & Teschner frames with Campag gear. Live in the mountains and cannot climb for love nor money.......

    You live in Madrid. Wow awesome.

  • Despite the self-serving data benders and associated propaganda to the contrary, I am led to believe that there are pockets of organised, highly sophisticated dopers, even within 'new age' cycling teams. Personally, I don't accept that the 'dark era' has ended, it has just morphed into a new guise.

    I am currently pretty much unemployed, so I got a lot of time for riding my bike. I have studied law and criminology
    Came on here from the CN forum where I have been a moderator, although I already resigned from this position several months ago

    Actually you know that's very curious: you hit on something I was feeling my way towards too while browsing here. Mewmewmew13 already suggested in the Shoutbox that young Boomcie take the opportunity to mature a little in this forum, given his history of bannage "over there". How many other users will similarly "make a fresh start" with VeloRooms? Joining up here is a moment of tabula rasa, a sort of poetic redemption.

    Wow, Barry: you did exactly the same honours as I!

    I never qualified as an advocate because I had already decided not to bother after becoming disillusioned as an assistant on a particularly difficult rape and child abuse case.

    The criminology stuff I was particularly fond of but it seemed ominous to me that all my profs resembled the people they studied: broken homes and alcoholism.

    Anyway I decided to get out of academe right after graduating and then after selling banks and forming a few disgusting corporations and public-private partnerships, I bridged into technology. It was still a time when you could still do that easily.

    In essence everyone gets a complete clean slate when they join up. So we won't take into account banning histories and such from other sites

    Well, it is a bit different, I specialized in international public law and the criminology is a specific master cocnerning international crimes. So it did not really have to do with broken homes and such and child abuse, but mroe with genocide, mass rape and other systemic human rights violations. I am actually looking to remain in academia and would like to get a phd position or some other research position ( I would not really like to be either a defense attorney or a public prosecutor in these types of cases, mainly because of the gruesome nature of many of these acts)

    You probably shouldn't answer this due to privacy etc but your description of your studies sounds a lot like the course they do at Maastricht. I personally know several graduates of that who work here in Brussels.

    I understand it better now. You're more a Den Haag than a Govan sort of guy ;) Niche area in which to find funding. Best of luck to you!

    I didn't know they had such a course at Maastricht. But luckily multiple institutes all over the world are just creating faculties or departments about this exact problem so funding isn't really a problem, the problem is finding a place where they want a starter

    There sure are an awful lot of Dutch and Belgians around here. ;D

    I would have introduced myself on the first page if the village idiot hadn't decided to steal my identity. Many will recognize me from CN, one even from an earlier lifetime! ;)

    I'm American and have lived in Amsterdam for 23 years, so I"m pretty much a local here too. My wife died of breast cancer nearly five years ago, since which I live alone. I have three grown sons, one lives here, one with his mother in London, and the oldest with my two grandchildren in Indianapolis.

    Unlike some, I have never created an artificial online persona. What you see is what you get.
