I have a yoga clothing e-commerce website designed in Drupal 6 & UberCart >>> www (dot) evolvefitwear (dot) com. It was built two years ago using an Indian firm.

I'm going to be in the Milwaukie area tomorrow (4/9), and have about five hours - from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM - where I need to find a place to work. I have a meeting that gets done at 10:30 AM, and then I need to be back in Oak Grove at 4:30, and in between I don't want to come all the way back out to the east edge of Gresham and then back again. Does anyone have or know of a space where I could plant myself for that time in that area? All I need is an internets connection and a desk.

Does anyone know what to expect in the way of shuttle services? Is public transit in Austin likely to be useful? Are cabs likely to be available? Can I rent a bike for the week?Read more
