When I went to program my first workout on the new rower the other day I realized it didn’t have the option for setting an Undefined rest period like my Ski Erg and the rowers at the gym. Turned out the firmware on this PM3 monitor was 7 versions old. It was easy to upgrade using a free utility provided by Concept2. The hardest part was finding an old USB cable for connecting the monitor, but luckily I have some for Arduino boards.
Here’s the latest in what is now a yearly screenshot of my home screen.
I’d previously posted in 2017, 2016, and 2010. I decided not to upgrade to the iPhone XS this year, so I have the same phone. The biggest changes are I’m back to a single page and I’ve filled the last space with the Tesla app.
I drove up to Rogers City for the weekend to work on the charging situation before it gets too cold outside. Last night I plugged into a standard outlet (NEMA 5-15), which should only be able to charge at a speed of 3-4 miles of range per hour, according to Tesla’s home charging documentation. Somehow I was getting 5, which is still really slow.
I brought wire and a new NEMA 6-20 outlet with me, which is the same thing I have in my garage. So this morning we ran a line and installed the outlet. The box in my parents’ garage already had a free 240 volt 20 amp breaker, which made installation a breeze. It took 20-30 minutes for the charge speed to ramp up, which could be due to the colder weather, but I’m getting the same 14 miles/hour I get at home. Much better!
I was browsing on my phone the other day and thought I saw a hair on the screen. Take a look..
Turned out to be clever (perhaps evil) attempt to get me to tap of the button. Here’s a closer look at the graphic…
I think the only time I launch the Desert Golfing game is when I travel. It was just under 2 years ago when I got to hole #100.
My 2013 MacBook Pro is having some issues and the suggestions say to try this. It didn’t find any problems. Reminds me of the DOS days.
I use the Mac screenshot utility a lot, but have never thought of using it as a ruler. I’ve always used a browser extension to measure pixels on the screen. If you’re not using this utility, you initiate it by pressing
command + shift + 4 on your keyboard.
I learned a few other tricks from the thread. Once you start dragging your mouse to create the rectangle:
shift to lock in an axis as you continue sizing the area.
space to move the rectangle to a new location.
Do you have any other tips?
Filled up every square in 2017 and today extends the streak to 418 days.
Happy New Year!
A year ago, I posted a screenshot of the home screen on my iPhone 7 Plus. Might as well make this a yearly thing. Not much has changed with my app usage though. Here’s the home screen on my iPhone X.
This may be the first time since iOS added app groups that I have a 2nd page.
These are some augmented reality apps I wanted to try. I’ll get around to filing them into a group soon because this second screen is bugging me.
