Learn to drive...

in reply to Top goal for 2004

I've been saying this for years, but I think I really should get round to it this year. As much as I hate cars, I think my responsibilities as a parent mean I should at least learn how to drive the damn things, even if I still refuse to own one of them :)

    Cor blimey, another person who doesn't drive. To explain I grew up in the wilds of Scotland and couldn't afford a car. Moved to London and didn't want to drive a car (have you seen how they drive {shudder} scary stuff). Now I live in a small town and don't really need a car.

    But like cLive ;-) says later, as an emergency contingent, its probably a good idea.

    Nice to know I'm not alone as a non driver :)

    You live in Santa Monica, California and you don't drive? How is that possible? No kidding, how do you manage?

    "What do I want? I'm an American. I want more."

      I live 1.7 miles from my office, cycling there and wherever else I need to go to and, at a pinch, persuade my wife to give me a ride if really needed.

      It's only the fact that she's ill and out of town at the moment that I'm beginning to realise how important it is that I learn for emergencies like this :)

      Needs must, I suppose...

[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus we will be glad to have you here more frequently, tho ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena oh I thought you found the error by adding -exec mp3info
[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
