Internet Billing changes March 1st...

That's cool. Except before this came up, there wasn't even a reason to be excited about this.

Now that a cap is in place we're all going to be happy that our particular brand's content doesn't count against it. Rather than competing based on what the package does for you, now it offers the advantage of what it doesn't do.

And so a provider creates it's own bargaining chip.

No offense intended of course Alan ;).

Yup - Fair enough. I still signed the petition.

You got it! Optik High Speed users get 125Gb/mo. Compare the usage on the various TELUS plans here.

w00t!:clap:

I wonder how that will work with Telus Optik. Am I crazy to assume that my TV usage can be separated from my internet usage? Or is it all just one digital feed to them? And if so, what's the limit on Optik?

Alan B - where are you? :)

Trails were in good shape today but the woodwork above BP was really slick this morning even though they looked grippy and with no signs of frost. Must be the transition from lots of wet to cold temps. Likely OK now that its warmed up a bit.

I saw those girls too. I wanted to ask them if they were all the way up at grouse but i was too busy panting/dying.

LOL - I saw them too. They were coming past the trailhead at Pipeline as I was gearing up and the one girl was skiing down the road. I'd never seen that before!

Rode up this afternoon. Mtn Hwy is totally rideable past the entrance of Ladies/Pipeline. Some compact slush on the 5th, but vehicle traffic and warm weather has cut double track down to the road surface most the way up. Compact slush on the trail on the top half of Pipeline. Made the ride down rather lively. A few patches of bare rock and dirt until the second teeter, then the trail is bare. BP is 99% clear to Lower Crippler and Lower Crippler was clear.

Casual North Van restaurant recommendations?

Red Chili for Szechuan
District for interesting snack-type share food and great Belgian beer selection
Mumbai Masala on 16th for Indian. I hate the guy at Palki - take-out only from there.

Vancouver to Okanagan Falls (pentiction)

Crowsnest is crappier, but lower elevation for more of the way. I think it only gets a little above 1300m in elevation for a short stretch around Allison Pass. The connector is around 1600m for a long stretch and a summit of over 1700m. In the winter, could mean a lot more snow on the road.

I'd likely wait until the day before your trip and check the DriveBC website for current highway conditions and then check the weather forecast.

Start Union bashing now!

Did you read it? Strike vote done 95%.

Still does not mean they will strike. They need a strike vote in order to issue strike notice. They then can give strike notice (usually 72 hours or so), but even then, it does not mean they will strike.

This happens all the time. It's the path of escalation that a Union has to follow to legally strike but is also supposed to put pressure on the Employer to come to an agreement.

Standard Union protocol in negotaitions.

Next will be a strike vote and notice of strike action.

It does not mean they will actually strike.

step-in bindings. where did they go?

I am still rocking a pair of Switch Team X bindings (they have the high-back) with Northwave boots. Best system ever designed. It's such a solid connection to my board, and the high-back provides plenty of stiffness at the back of the calf. No sitting on my ass before every run. Super responsive, no slop.

I've been riding the exact same setup for years too. I'll likely end up trying out Flow bindings with some different boots. Unless of course they don't make Flow bindings anymore.

Little bit of snow on top of Pipeline this afternoon, but after the newer woodwork with the teeter it was virtually dry. Lower Crippler was in perfect shape. Awesome day, great ride!

Rode up to Bobsled this afternoon. Still some snow on the woodwork and that plus the thick muck made some of the trail pretty greasy. Maybe it was me, but the trail seemed pretty slow this afternoon due to the muck. Natural High was better, but still some light snow on the woodwork on the top half.

Espresso was in good shape yesterday afternoon for the most part. Some icy woodwork and icy rock, but if it was dry, it was grippy and fast. Lower Crippler was mint.
