Domesday, July 19

Those of you who are scholars of medieval English history (and who isn't one here at Caltech) will know that the Domesday Book was a great census and property record ordered by William the Conqueror in 1086 to assess the material wealth of his subjects. It was called Domesday ("Doomsday") because every person would be accounted for and the judgment was considered final.

In a similar vein, the bike shop is going to be conducting it's own "survey" of material wealth. There are various frame parts around the shop that may belong to people or may have been left for future generations of riders to use. Trouble is, I don't know which is which. So next Monday I'm going to take anything that looks like it's not being used and stash it in a corner marked for general use.

So, if you've got some bike part chilling in the shop that you actually want to keep, please either
1. Rescue it from the shop.
2. Put a note on it telling me it's yours.
