Gitolite on OS X

As a software developer one of the tools of the trade we need is a revision control system.  This system tracks changes to the source code files and other documents related to individual projects that I am working on.  Recently I have been using Git to track my projects. Git is an open source project…

A new workout

My workout beat me up today.  I have doubts that I can even remember what I did or what the names of the new exercise is.  I was truly whipped by the end of this workout. The warmup was fairly typical for these new routines.  I do a 500 meter row, and then practice my…

The epiphany

I had an epiphany….  Or maybe I am just hitting that mid-life crisis, again. It is something that has been building for quite some time, but due to other issues I have not been able to scratch this itch.  As I have been working at getting a decent plan together for this years race season,…

Thursdays workout.

lots of new stuff last Thursday.  It was refreshing. I thought the warmup was going to be the normal routine.  I walk about 5 minutes on the tread mill, then row 500 meters. Not that day. The new warmup kicked my ass.  I did the normal 500 meter row, but then instead of stretching we jumped…

Mercedes: F-Duct Front Wing operated by the Rear Wing DRS

This is the latest development from Mercedes.  They have figured out how to stall the front wings by using the rear…

Enabling SSH on your Mac

I use a MacBook pro for my primary development these days, now that I am switching between ObjectiveC and C++. anyhow, If you are like me, you probably have an old Mac lying around doing nothing, or maybe its only getting lightly used.  who knows. I don’t have a home server setup at the moment…

Dropping barbells.

It sucks. I was going for a one rep max on my back squat and on my last rep, I lost my balance coming out of the squat.  It was kind of scary actually, I rolled forward into this portable weight bar, which didn’t stop my momentum and the barbell, the weight bar, and yours…

Front lip install

Back in January I while getting the Evo ready for another season I finally had to address the front lower lip.  It was basically falling off the car because half of the right side mounts had been sheared off from all the past years of hitting hapless cones. A couple of years ago I replace…

Learned some new exercises today.

today I had a lot of new exercises in the routine along with a later than normal time.  Normally I workout in the mornings, but today I had  workout at noon which is a nice change of pace. This was the first workout since last week.  I have been down with a cold and didn’t…

AAS round one

This past weekend I race at the first round of the American Autocross series down at Marina airport.  Marina is an awesome place to race with its large concrete paddock.  The grip is consistent, the weather is predictable for the south bay, windy, sunny and cold for this time of year. AAS courses are always…
