    Last night’s Caltrain meltdown was punctuated with a little inadvertent humor. The message boards at Mt.View posted the text “284 386 288 trains have been delayed”. The automatic text-to-speech translation then read this as “two hundred eighty-four MILLION three hundred eighty-six THOUSAND two hundred eighty-eight trains have been delayed”. Wow, looks like I’ll be biking home for the next few thousand years. 🙂

    And that bike vs. deer collision: Ooof ! Both parties must have some aching bruises to nurse. I barely missed hitting a buck by six feet while descending Mt. Hamilton Rd. It was scary. Full grown bucks are heavy.
