    Quad Bikes is hiring for part time mechanics.

    Gotta have shop experience and a friendly disposition. Everyone at our shop does a bit of everything, so mechanics wrench of bikes, help customers, travel around campus cutting locks, haul scrap etc. etc. We aim to keep our prices low and the quality of service real high.

    Swing by the shop (corner of Walker and Shepard in Cambridge) or email

    ^ ahh, I'm trying to decide whether or not to stay in Boston this summer and find whatever jobs I can to get by while volunteering in a lab at school or... do a cross-country tour.

    Hmmmm, decisions.

    Oh, and banana, once I was riding around up near Quad Cycles when the locknut on my rear wheel broke. It was my fixed gear so I needed one to keep it from sliding forward. I walked to Quad and stood there for literally 15 minutes while the lone mechanic ignored me and dicked around eating a sandwich. Granted, I didn't say "Hey, I need some help here..." but if you're ignored when you walk into a shop...that just blows. Anyways, hey made it clear I was inconveniencing him greatly to spend time looking for the part that I needed that wasn't going to bring any money into the shop. I didn't have any cone wrenches with me (who takes a cone wrench on a ride?) and I asked if I could borrow one so I could get home. He said that they'd have to charge me to install it themselves because I might damage it; obviously, this has some merit, shops don't usually lend out tools, but it was the final kicker after the guy's bad attitude. I hand-tightened the locknut and went home.

    So there, /end rant.unstuck in time

    I think we can all agree that Quad Cycles sucks and that Quad Bikes should change their name to Harvard Cyclery or some shit so as to avoid any and all further unfortunate association.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Looking for work, preferably with morning/afternoon shifts so I can keep my current job at night. Restaurants or coffee shops seem like a good fit, have done that in the past. If you or someone you know can pull me into a place, that'd be great."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    Whisper fail"Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."
    cross-posted from Dumb Questions: Question for Computer Science and/or Graphic Design students: How could I go about recruiting a student(s) to work on a webpage idea of mine? What needs do CS/design students typically have for portfolios/experience? Are students typically paid for this work? Job boards? Career services?

    My wishful thinking is that I could work with a couple students on a commercial webpage idea on an unpaid internship basis. Students would be exposed to a real startup, have lots of room for creativity, and have an interesting project in their portfolio. Let me know if this seems reasonable and/or ideas for how to recruit students. Thanks.

    ^^ In my experience with unpaid internships, you get what you pay for. Work quality tends to be very low unless the intern thinks he's going to be hired by the employer at some point in the future. "For Credit" just means the student will treat it like a school project, which means 90% of the work will be done the night before. If you are a startup you need to know how to raise the money to pay your employees. A startup founder who can't raise money is going to fail. The "experience of being exposed to a real startup" is bullshit. Do you think there is a shortage of people who want free websites made for them?A few spokes shy of a wheel.
