To the individual copying my work. I know who you are. I've been waiting patiently to see what you would do when I left you hanging.

Its one thing to give credit where its due. Another to take someone else's efforts and use them as your own. Especially for personal gain.

I've been watching you with interest.

Do tell. I read this stuff from time to time on the Internet and I have no idea how any can tell anything thats going on "behind the screen." I thought that you had given up, instead you were...lurking?

I agree with Conchscooter. Do tell.

I use a couple search functions where you can see whose been to your site. You can then hit links backwards until you reach the individual or their site(s) or both. I discovered something that looked fishy. I won't say where it is because I don't want to accuse someone of something which might only appear to be what I think it is. On the other hand I'm pretty sure of what I'm seeing. It could be coincidence, sure. An old very close friend committed suicide in November and I found out another is dying of cancer. I guess I've been a little touchy since then.

I hear there's a way to watermark your work. Also another way to keep people from copying the pages of the site. I'll be looking into it.

My apologies for the absence. I kind of had the wind taken out of my sails regarding writing about riding over this winter.

So sorry to hear about the personal tragedies. I'm here for you even if you can't reach out and touch me.

Thank you Irondad. We met at the beginning of high school and his passing kind of took the wind out of my sails. We never rode side by side much (he was too crazy) but we seemed to work on bikes and cars together a lot.

Oddly, after I posted this blog, I contracted five real healthy viruses all within forty eight hours. Couldn't tell you what or how but my pc went from slow to stop. Spam email, you name it.

I now have a new pc with stuff I know is working to protect the system but what it is, is beyond my comprehension. I just know nothing is getting through anymore. ANd the dealio which seems to have caused this mess has also taken a turn. I'll be posting more to the story and eventually be back to writing about the life of a rider. Just as soon as I get the time to ride and the weather agrees with that time haha.

Thank you for the support. It means alot.

Sorry to hear about your friends. Losses like that have an effect. No wonder there is little wind in your sails.

Best wishes for a fine spring, warm air, and clear roads ahead...
