Really disappointed in the status of Virtualization software nowadays. Years ago, I was able to run SuSE in VirtualBox without any real difference in performance. Now, running any version of Windows in VMWare Fusion on my MBP drags my whole system to a crawl, and attempting to run Ubuntu in VBox on my Windows machine is super slow in the guest. :(
I just discovered that next to the library in my neighborhood (by neighborhood, I mean a five minute walk away from home) is a Capital Bikeshare station. Right next to a park, too. My figure badly needed the motivation to shape up.
