Session #23 (per twitter): ‎3.3mi / 48m40s. Part of me says it was an off day, but a month ago I wasn't peaking at 7.0mph or jogging 2 laps at a stretch. It was an "off" day in that I missed my best time by 2 minutes, and I can't even blame a late lunch or fighting off a cold or whatever. It was a satisfactory day in that I matched my best half-lap speed (7.0) for a half-lap and a little more, to show that I can; and put in 2 laps at a jog, again just to show that I can. Not long ago I couldn't do... (...more)

Some years ago I had the dubious honor of sitting in on a negotiation meeting between my main client, and his telephone service providers. My client did the vast majority of affiliate recruiting via a telemarketing "boiler room", and the bundling of leased lines for combined data and voice service was becoming mainstream. Anyway, the part that's relevant to Eric Cantor: this business owner had engaged a negotiator to negotiate a price structure. The meeting concluded with the negotiator claiming some compe...

Session #22: 3.3mi / 47m09s; 4.12mi/60:00m, peaked at 7.0mph for a half-lap, and held out another 1.5 laps at a 5.4-5.6mph jog. After that, 1.5 laps was my limit in speed phases, but I feel like I had really good breath control. That burned ~500 calories. I was supposed to get groceries after the gym Monday, but I ended up not getting out. Ditto yesterday, and my cupboard was pretty bare... so I staved off hunger with V8 all day and broke into a can of salmon in the late evening. Vitamins and omega-3... (...more)
task minder pt. 3 posted: Wed 2011-10-05 12:11:15 tags: organization
OK, I gave TBird's Lightning extension the proverbial college try for firing task reminders. The problems I have with it are: - TBird uses ~80MB of memory idling, while TMR uses zero until Win Task Scheduler fires it; - sometimes it just stops firing reminders at all until I restart TBird; - some tasks show twice ("snoozed" occurrences of recurring tasks?); and - If you edit a task, it remains "open" but is dismissed from the reminder window without a snooze. So, Lightning's task minder isn't really... (...more)
task minders revisited posted: Mon 2011-10-03 12:04:28 tags: organization
As noted last week, I'm looking for a replacement for Phatsoft TMR. I might just roll with the task manager in Mozilla Thunderbird's Lightning extension. TMR is still available for download via Tucows and Sourceforge, although on SF the project URL tmr.{sf|sourceforge}.net redirects to phatsoft.net, and phatsoft.net has since lapsed and been squatted by those domain-squatting fucktards who brand their squatted domains with that bile-inducing "what you need, when you need it" tagline I came to hate so much ...
