my old band, and I thought the numbers looked cool.
After nearly a year of running the site I decided that it wasn't really adding much to the Interwebs, and became fed up with constantly trying to fight off bastard hackers who were constantly trying to break, enter and shit on the metaphorical bed.
So 9,102 news posts later it's bye bye to 161211.com - you were fun for a while, sort of.
P.S. If you've found this page after following a link to 161211.com and you're in need of cycling info I can heartily recommend you check out www.cyclechat.net (which is where I hang out these days).
