    CSC Website celebrates it's 10th birthday

    10 years ago next week I registered the cosportbikeclub.org domain name, and with Ralph's generosity to host the site on his servers, I started building the site. I initially registered it for 10 years, so this is the first renewal I'm having to do... it's kind of surreal - it doesn't feel like it's been 10 years already!!

    Remember the original logo?



    Sorry, I'm not an artist... and I did it in MS Paint

    And this is obviously not 10 years old, but it still resembles what the site looked like "back in the day":


    When we hit 250 members (long before forums were ever introduced into the mix), I figured it was safe to proclaim that we were the largest sportbike club in Colorado.

    The site has changed immensely over the years, and thanks to the introduction of the forums, the amount of time I spend maintaining things has been drastically reduced. Prime example: Member List and Rider Finder were separate from the forum and maintained manually by me... But because these were features I felt the club should still have even with the forum, I decided to rewrite them, hooking into the database, so members could maintain their own info. Then Ralph changed the software, and I had to modify the code to make it work again.

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move – it’s in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    Dude, I have like 5k posts. Either I avoid my work during the day, or I don't sleep at night. Guess what, I'm not real tired this morning. You figure it out.

Of course they were my sisters, aunts, the chick that owned the bar we lived above, the ho's my pimp buddy "Tommy Two Fingers" used to bring around, and that damned Barbie Doll I found lying in a gutter outside my elementary school. She would do ANYTHING for a warm meal and a pair of untorn jeans. Man I miss that Barbie.
