Barring anything majorly unforeseen will be riding in the Big Canberra Bike Ride tomorrow morning along with, I gather, several hundred other people. Should be fun!
Pockettrack rig is behaving nicely so you ought to be able to follow my (our?) progress from about 7am tomorrow here.
Am taking advantage of the proxmity of Canberra Day and Easter to take a ten day break. Mostly pottering and going to Uni I suspect, have a few hacking type things I want to do. Got off to a good start yesterday with a bit of tinkering with a 500m 802.11 link - more to follow :)
Can't resist commenting on Stephen's comments here where he discusses the bandwidth of a USB memory stick carried on a mountain bike. This, as he points out, being a reference to Tanenbaums remark about station wagons and nine track tapes. Stephen is one of the fittest riders I know - we recently discussed average speeds and we concluded he'd be averaging around 30-35km/h where I'm currently only managing a leisurely 20km/h or so... Gives me something to aim for tho :)
