We had a private viewing and voting for the Oscars, and of course, made a public spreadsheet.Herein lies the story of the nominations, awards, our predictions and wishes, and the insignificant result. We would have failed, but we're OK with that. </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Kodak Theater </span> <div class="street-address"> 6801 Hollywood Blvd </div> <span class="locality">Los Angeles</span>, <span class="region">California</span> <span class="postal-code">90028</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <div class="tel"> <abbr class="type" title="voice">Phone:</abbr> <span class="value">(323) 308-6363</span> </div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="34.101564">34° 6' 5.6304" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-118.338690">118° 20' 19.284" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=34.101564+-118.338690+%286801+Hollywood+Blvd%2C+Los+Angeles%2C+CA%2C+90028%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=6801+Hollywood+Blvd&amp;csz=Los+Angeles%2C+CA&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!

An odd little article that mentions thoughts of breaking collar bones too, all in the name of safety? By the way I'm not sure of the medals counts, but the beeb said 8 so maybe there was an update after the olys. <a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/other_sports/cycling/7872309.stm" title="http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/other_sports/cycling/7872309.stm">http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/other_sports/cycling/7872309.stm</a> Some background on the impressive results by Great Britain: <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Laoshan Velodrome </span> <span class="locality">Beijing</span>, <span class="region">Beijing</span> <div class="country-name">China</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="39.912732">39° 54' 45.8352" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="116.207500">116° 12' 27" E</abbr></span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/british-cycling-team-gb-winners-eight-gold-medals-2008-olympics-shreds-skinsuits" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/british-cycling-team-gb-winners-eight-gold-medals-2008-olympics-shreds-skinsuits#comments Roadcyclist.net 2012 2008 Beijing Beijing CHN British Cycling olympics shredding skinsuits summer olympics Team GB http://roadskater.net/crss/node/908 39.912732 116.207500 Thu, 05 Feb 2009 21:30:46 +0000 roadskater 908 at http://roadskater.net Roadskubuntu 64 Out for a Spin on the Slow, Crowded Internet Onramp with a $215 AMD 64 X2 Vista 32 Ubuntu 64 Box http://roadskater.net/roadskubuntu-64-out-spin-slow-crowded-internet-onramp-215-amd-64-x2-vista-32-ubuntu-64-box Well after many months of running on empty on an overused underpowered system, Roadskater.net is rolling on the same slow road to the internet highway but with a faster machine...a dual-core amd cpu (not blazing, just 2.2 GHz or so), lots of hard drive space, and 3 gig of DDR-2 800 RAM (waiting to go to 8G soon). I'm not sure if this kit is a bit overclocked but my memtest reports moving faster than claimed. Anyway this whole kit (3G RAM version) ended up at $215 pre-tax as a demo sale so cross thy fingerettes me skateys. <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Greensboro</span>, <span class="region">North Carolina</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="36.073499">36° 4' 24.5964" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-79.790160">79° 47' 24.576" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=36.073499+-79.790160+%28%2C+Greensboro%2C+NC%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Greensboro%2C+NC&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
