This newsgroup seems very quiet!

Hi,

As a relative newcomer to this newsgroup, I can’t help noticing how quiet it
seems to be. Most days, there are maybe two or three new postings, and sometimes
none at all.

With the number of unicyclists around the world, there seem to be three possible
conclusions:

  1. My browser is somehow set up wrongly, so I’m not seeing a lot of the
    new messages.

  2. There is another relevant newsgroup somewhere which gets more postings to do
    with unicycling (e.g one of the juggling/circus arts groups). If anyone knows
    of an more active alternative to this one, please let me know.

  3. All the unicyclists are out riding all the time and don’t have time to sit in
    front of pc’s for hours on end!

Any comments?

Indicentally, my idling’s improving (my record is now 12 complete cycles
i.e. 12 backward/forward pairs), but I’m still finding it very difficult to stop
turning to my left on each stroke (I idle with the left foot down). Any
advice on this would be welcome.

Mick

(This newgroup seems very quiet) My sentiments exactly, Wake Up and talk!
Probably, everyone’s out riding. It’s quit hot here (Bakersfield) in the
evenings, thus a little uncomfortable to ride too much. I have a dumb question
though. Are any of you going to the Unicycle Convention in Monrovia? Have heard
very little on here about it. To my knowledge it starts this afternoon. Hope to
see some of you there. Mike

Don’t get too discouraged with the idling. I remember when I learned it took a
long time to quit flailing all over. I just worked a little here and there and
worked on other stuff and then one day I noticed I was idling with no effort and
as long as I want. You will find that as you work on other skills the practice
will often improve/complement your other skills.
