    I’m catching up on my .NET reading and saw ur bit today, of course I had to check ur site out. Love the design!

    Congrats on making .NET, bet it feels super cool. I know how you feel, a uk based international magazine (won’t mention any names) I have worshipped and read since the mid 90′s commissioned me to build there new site last year. Biggest buzz I ever had, it’s like working for ur idol. Still at it (big site) but well worth it though!

    Take care, Matt :)

    Eye protection is essential for cyclists. Besides sand, dust, and small rocks kicked up by passing cars and other cyclists, Sunglasses here’s the threat posed by flying insects. Ask Jonathan Vaughters.CARRERA Sunglasses He dropped out of the 2001 Tour de France after a wasp became trapped in his glasses and stung his eye.The protection afforded by sunglasses far outweighs their disadvantages. DG SunglassesAll lenses must meet minimum impact protection standards and most sunglasses offer protection against ultraviolet light. UV exposure may damage vision over time,BVLGARI SUNGLASSES so look for lenses that absorb 98% or more of UVA and UVB. Even clear lenses can have a UV coating. Wrap around lenses are highly recommended for their extra protection
