Sattelite Tea

Sattelite Tea

I was brewing a cup of tea at work, and thought it looked just awesome. Yes, that is my computer with an HTTP server up in the background.

In other news, the people at Samsung/Google decided to use ISO8601 to name pictures taken with the camera, which is something I heartily approve of. Instead of using some stupid serial number, they name it with when it was taken, in a way that sorts alphabetically in chronological order.

Drive Park

An idea I had for a park, probably inspired by the Irma & Irma intersections by my nephews school.

Ok, so the park is “Drive Park”.

The main east-west surface street is “Park Drive”

There is a freeway going north-south that is “Drive Parkway”

Thus, you would take Drive Parkway to the Park Drive exit to get to Drive Park. Where there is a driving range…

WTF, Dialup?

Lunch at 16th Street Mall

Having Lunch
Newest standing against a tree

Yes, I am calling my newest bike “Newest”. It is his name. New tires, 700×23 Michelin Kromion.

From my apartment to the 16th street mall and back was about 50 miles on the route I took, which was more bike path than road. The paths along I-76 and I-25 are really cool, until you hit Commons Park near Coors Field.

Newest Road Bike

This is my Newest road bike. (I only have one, it is named the “Newest.”)

2010 Fuji Newest 3.0
Carbon fork, nice handlebar, adjustable handlebar stem. The rest is pretty much standard low-end road bike stuff. Now I just have to ride it into the ground.

This bike is almost half the weight of my Schwinn, which I was thinking of using for training.
