HEATMAPS!
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
I updated my GPS heatmap on Strava. They only do for Cycling OR Running, but nothing else, nor a combined map. *sigh*

So, my walks that had GPS were converted to runs. Some had a little running. It zooms way out, because most of it was in the Bahamas, but there's a little blob on the ...

FreedomPop is dead

They have always seemed sketchy, but last year they worked.

In September, they disabled a lot of accounts. I try to use the device and all it does is redirect me to an i
portant notice. I follow the link to a 404.

If I log in and go to Contact Us, it redirects to the forums. The forums are ...

After DR of a TSM server, do you need to restore the primary storage pool from the copy cool ?
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
It depends on if it's small files or not. I normally have a small-file pool, which is the DIRMC, VMTLMC, and TOCDESTINATION. The offsite for this is kept reclaimed down to 1 tape, and I try to restore that primary pool first.

For large file, TDP, VM and image full backups, they can ...

USB Power Packs Capacity
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
In layman's terms, think of it electricity like water.
* Amps is the stream width (almost nozzle width.)
* Volts is the spray pressure.
* Watts is the volume of water in one second.

So, .00000001 amps at a million volts won't kill you, but it might poke a tiny hole in you. 1000 amps at ...

The Wise Old Woman
Traditional Japanese folktale
retold by Yoshiko Uchida

Many long years ago, there lived an arrogant and cruel young lord who ruled over a small village in the western hills of Japan. "I have no use for old people in my village," he said haughtily. "They are neither ...

Sanger Chase Ride
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
Ride to Sanger with the Sharon group. I was 22 mins late leaving the house, so I told them not to delay the start time. They waited 5-6 mins for me at Hwy 377 and Bonnie Brae. It was a hard push to catch up, and Sharon pushed hard once I got in sight.


Unfortunately, this sort of punished/burned out some of the others as well, especially Jim F. Jim tried to hang on, but at the end he finally admitted he needed to work his way up to this length of ride. He completed it, but with our waiting, it was 2-3 hours extra. That being said, for being about 3 months post-op for hip replacement, he's doing awesome.

Becky took the SAG wagon back from lunch because of other committments.  Karl took it because he broke a drive-side spoke in the middle where it'd been notched by the chain about 2000 miles ago.

Lunch Ride

Lunch at Modmarket, a new restaurant. Apple maps had a massively wrong location for 3651 Justin Road. Also, notice the teleport from Wal-Mart to Silverthorn. I forgot to turn on my GPS.

Men's Ride
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
Karl, Jim and I went for a quick spin. Pretty muggy out there, but the temps were nice. We started early, and rolled about 7:05am from the AMC pond, and about 6:50 from my back gate. Ended up a little further than we planned, but was good. Wind was brutal. This was a pretty hard push to only get 16.2mph. Average watts shows the truth.

I stayed near the front for much of the second half of the ride, but I was never far ahead. It's more of the initial power-up rather than a massive difference in power. Looking over the last few months of Garmin history for rides over 20 mins and 5 miles, this is my highest average wattage (214 vs 207) by 7 watts, but only my second highest max-average-watts (244 vs 258 highest 20-min average during the ride).

I also had actual breakfast - 2 mini sausage-biscuits (300kcal) and 3 six-inch pancakes (about the same). No syrup or butter. Powerade full-strength in one bottle, and half plus sugar-free green tea in the other... plus 20oz of gatorade mid-ride, plus a fried pie mid ride. It was 20 miles in before I opened the first bottle, but I've been pretty well hydrated lately. I definitely felt the slowdown before beginning the rehydration.

I was short on sleep, and had Advocare MNS Max E (though I didn't have the CorePlex, the probiotic, nor the Omega. I added a single OptiMen multi tablet, and one TwinLab TriBoron Plus calcium). The MNS E is caffeine laiden, and I felt very alert. Perceived exertion seemed lower than expected, but it was still very obviously a hard push. The ingredients all look to be okay were I in a UCI race, but I can't help but wonder about metabolites, etc. I couldn't find anything on the USADA or WADA websites on labs for testing. They specifically don't test supplements. More research is warranted.
