Yes, it's really popular. Especially for me. It's awkward, oldfashioned and, together with its hobbled together IDE, slows me down to a crawl. It's time to dump this stuff into the bucket and write some real code again. Don't tell anybody, but I'm already looking for a good opportunity to quit my job here. Perhaps I will find something with good old C++ again, now that C++ is suddently 'in' again.

On Sunday, I achieved a cycling milestone by completing a 58.54 miles ride (solo) through North Georgia mountains. It involved climbing about 5000 ft. My speed was 13 mph (I stopped a lot to take pictures once I climbed a mountain).
This ride follows the route of a ride named 3 gaps ride and it is a major cycling event in Georgia. I am participating in it next week. For those interested - http://www.cyclenorthgeorgia.com/[^]
Of course, the real bikers I know here Chris (Maunder and Meech) and Gary Wheeler will consider that a recovery ride . But I feel it was a major achievement for me as I was totally out of shape last year.
BTW: I did it on my new bike - Specialized Roubaix Apex[^]. After looking at a bunch of entry level carbon fiber bikes including TTs, I narrowed it down to Specialized Roubaix. I got the 2011 model at a discounted price.
