Run Forrest Run!

иконописикониSo I’ve started running again. Again being a very loose word. My first foray into a routine of running involved getting up before sunup with Jon Knowles over the Brooklyn Bridge. This taught me a few things.

    raman amplifier

  • online casinoI am not a morning person.
  • When an unmorning person runs a few miles in the morning, he looks something like what our cat looks like 5 seconds before the hairball expulsion begins.

One neato gadget that caught my eye is the Nike+iPod thing. There’s a cool flash showing how this works on the Nike Plus site but I can’t link directly to it. The Apple info is офис обзавежданеhere. (I hope that the iPod isn’t why the Apple running girl is running so angry.)

But anyway, as a beginning runner, I’m morally obligated to not spend hundreds of dollars on cool running gear. So I also found gmap-pedometer.com . It’s awesome!

Anyway, first run was two miles… will try to a week. Be nice to get up to a half-marathon coming up here called something by the Sea… It’s a run from SLO to Avila.

Summer of Refreshment

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve spent some time here. (sawry)

Now that summer has officially started, the question that demands to be asked is: How are you going to enjoy yourself?

Might I suggest a new cocktail to ponder instead of your usual gin’n'tonic, vodka tonic, hefeweizen summer drink rotation? Try the French Mojito (aka the Momo). The French Mojito is best enjoyed on hot afternoons somewhere between the Bloody Mary and Martini launch envelopes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 parts vodka (don’t get cheap here)
  • 1/2 part fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 part simple sugar syrup (equal parts sugar/water solution)
  • 1/2 part Chambord
  • A dozen or so mint leaves
  • Club Soda

Directions:
Muddle mint leaves with vodka to extract the mint flavor. Add lime, sugar syrup, and lime juice. Add ice (crushed is nice), and top with club soda. For a prime time drink, substitute club soda with champagne.

March snow in San Luis Obispo!

Got some a little snow/freezing rain/hail last night. Here’s an article with a Photo Slideshow from the Tribune.

last.fm

Been having a blast with last.fm. Was put on to it by Joel and am really impressed by it’s ease of use and good quality (128kbps) streaming. And free!

Just plugged in my music stats to this blog so you can see the last three songs I’ve listened to. Clicking on the last.fm logo will go to my profile page.

And other than the fact that the site is down at this very moment, it’s been up the last three days I’ve used it.

myskelaneyus

Haven’t generated an entry here, but have lots of things I could talk about.

I guess part of my feels funny expressing mundane information that others have probably already figured out in more interesting ways.

I’m sure I’ll get over it.

Surprised to get a $50 Amazon gift certificate for filling out a 10-question small business survey. Could use some more of those. Used the certificacy to read up on the man behind the Castle. The book is The Chief: The Life of William Randolph Hearst and I’m really enjoying it. Leads me to another side point. This is the first large bio I’ve bought. Does this shift in reading interest signal increasing age and a tendency to look backwards. Hmm…

Also recommend Truth in Translation. Very logical, comprehensive discussion of bias in Greek translation.

I had some other thoughts, but you’ve probably already had them.

san luis obispo has it’s own craigslist!

I remember looking hard for a slo craigslist but had to resort to not so nearby Santa Barbara and San Francisco sites, but on a whim checked and there is one now! Looks like it’s been up for a little while, but hopefully will get more traffic once word gets out.

Metonic cycles (also “Where Is My Moon”)

An awesome pic of the day and neat backgrounder at my favorite home page.

Ansel Adams' Autumn Moon, High Sierra from Glacier PointThe 2005 version

My question is how did 200 photographers know that this professor predicted the same environment Ansel Adams photographed in 1948? Pretty devout crowd of shutterbugs.

high-res satellite pictures of Katrina/Rita

If you have a couple hours to spare, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency has posted a Hurricate Crisis Imagery website that has hundreds of high-resolution before and after pictures of Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, etc.

I am a big fan of Google Earth, but for some reason the site’s Google Earth option is not working for me. There is a streaming imagery viewer that has tons of data though.

Like I said, you might want to have a lot of time to browse these pics. Mostly phenomenal.

need a new home page?

Came across this site a while ago, on slashdot I think, but it is just spectactular. It’s an Astronomy Picture of the Day and the amazing thing is you could just start flipping through other days and still be amazed at the sights out there.

Here’s a pic of today’s and one a while back that I am using as my desktop wallpaper right now.

trail of breadcrumbs

Got off on a kick googling my name and found some neat old references to tech stuff gone by. This ref is a call for votes to establish the Usenet group comp.os.nt. You can see my name and email address in the votes area further down the page.

At the time I was actively involved in the BBS scene and was sysop of my own system called Etcetera Etcetera. I ran an a gateway called FrontDoor and a BBS called RemoteAccess. I still remember the author’s name, Joaquim Homrighausen. Anyhow, I was also involved with a BBS network called FidoNet. Here’s an old FidoNet listing, just search for “Smythe” or Tulsa…

Participation in FidoNet and BBSing in general allowed me to peer with experienced technical guys which is how I learned C programming. One of my first applications was a messaging tool that wouldu grab internet email and newsgroups (the big boys) via UUCP and convert them to FidoNet .PKT message formats (the BBS dialup boys). This allowed me and other users on my BBS to use internet email and newgroups from my lowly Intel 286 machine.

And that’s how I got into the internet… pre-world wide web of course. But that’s another story.

Enough reminiscence…(may not be real word)
