Gamer, programmer (C/C++/C#; VB.NET), and general computer geek; most of my experience is with Windows (from 9x to 8). Right now I'm running Windows 8 and Fedora 18 as my main desktop OSs.

I am currently head engineer on an aquatic robotics team, running and modding SeaPerch ROVs for water quality assessment using the Arduino platform.

Some people think they can outsmart me... Maybe, maybe. I have yet to see one who can outsmart bullet.

you should probably edit and add that comment to your answer; it's best to keep all the information in the answer

My cassette was starting to look like the second picture - probably a good thing I'm getting it replaced :)

I use leather gloves; they work very well for keeping out the wind

comment How do I deal with a dog chasing me when I'm touring?
Pepper spray is handy as well if it comes to a fight - it's also useful for any muggers that might try for your wallet :)

comment I keep getting flats
another reason that tires go flat sometimes is because of insufficient/nonexistant spoke protector on the inside of the rim - the end of a spoke is sharp enough to flat a tube

comment Is it better to have mountain bike tyres for the winter?
I would definetly not have slicks on a bike during the winter. if you're in a warm place where it almost never gets below freezing, then standard MTB/dirt tires will work (better traction in wet conditions) but if you're in a cold place (like me :) then metal studs are a necessity if you want to avoid sliding through red lights

comment If I'm riding on the road, and there is a red light but a walk signal in my direction, should I go?
I have a friend who knows some bike cops here in Fargo, ND and they say that red lights are like yield signs to bikes-if there's no one coming, you can go BUT this is most likely a local law. Definetly check your local laws first!

comment Can cyclists legally ride on the sidewalk?
+1 for "check local laws". In Fargo, ND there are some places where you can only bike on the sidewalk, some places where you can't bike on the sidewalk, and some places where it doesn't matter (confused yet? :P )
