Ugh.  Just get it over with already so we can go on with our lives realizing that this is not the end of the world.  This is a followup to SUBWAYblogger’s recent post on this subject that became quite the source of debate.
The vote to cut the program has been delayed.  However, there are a [...]

Is anyone else having a real bitch of a time with the turnstiles the last few days?  I feel like a complete moron.
It all culminated with today when I swiped so much that I lost my fare.
I’m hoping that the guy in charge of cleaning the MetroCard slots is on vacation or something.  At my [...]

Your thoughts on the new MTA website?
I’m just glad it stepped out of 1998.  It’s a massive improvement that was long overdue.

Hey gang.  Long time, no post.  I know…total dick move.  We’re working on making a major comeback for 2010.
A lot went on in our personal lives the last few months including our company getting diverted to a major new project (unrelated to SUBWAYblogger).  But we promise, we’ll be back very soon.
We’ll be making some posts [...]
