It's 8.25% here too. So annoying to do that math!

I'm doing physical therapy; I tore several muscles. The PT thinks I may have damaged some tendons or ligaments (she gave me the names but they were long and complicated) too but the only way to kn ow for sure would be surgery--and we're hoping that they heal up without that! But I've got a sheet of stretches and exercises to do daily, and then they torture me for an hour a couple times a week. It is actually improving; it's just a slow process and there's still bad days. Still, managed to make it through the zoo pushing a stroller today, which I wouldn't have been able to do a couple weeks ago.

It sucks, going from lifting 300+ lbs off the ground for reps to barely being able to pick up my son but I WILL get better and stronger! :evil:

Yay! Another lifter!

I'd like to lift 300+ lbs off the ground, but that's like 3.4x my body weight, so I don't think it's realistic for me. Hehe. I can snatch 105lbs tho, which I think is pretty good for someone my size! The squat is the easy part; it's the actual snatch that's hard for me. Hard to not fall over!

My wife and I spent Friday and Saturday up in Milwaukee, judging in the regionals for the National Homebrew Competition. Interesting couple of days.

I actually enjoy doing some of the oddball categories (which many beer judges tend to opt out of). While there's absolutely nothing wrong with trying to brew the perfect traditional Czech Pilsner or American Pale Ale, IMO the place where you really get to see homebrewers' creative side is in the categories where there's more leeway to try unusual methods or ingredients. At competitions I frequently judge the (in)famous "Specialty Beer" category (essentially the "none of the above" catch-all for anything that doesn't fit any established style). This time around I didn't do those, but did judge the "Spice/Herb/Vegetable" category and the "Smoke and Wood Aged" category, both of which had some very interesting entries. (And, as usual, a few that made you go "WTF were they thinking?")

I spent this weekend doing this: http://www.90fmtrivia.org/

First year my team got 33rd, last year we got 14th, and we're in the last hour right now and we're in 6th.

It's really, really fun. I'll make a post in the forums next year and see if anyone wants to join.

I suuuuuuuck at mental basic arithmetic, and end up ballparking and rounding up tips.

Like, the more abstract the math is (at least up to trig, never did anything with calculus), the EASIER I find it to do it in my head, but I break out the calculator for the basic stuff.

Yes, yes it is. Buy the fluid-filled teething rings and throw them into the freezer.

We've tried the teething rings; he can't seem to keep them in his hands/mouth; he drops them very quickly. The Orajel for babies type stuff works well though

I celebrated Earth Day a day late, by cycle commuting into work today.

(I meant to do it yesterday as well, but I might have woken up 45 minutes after I was already supposed to be into work. Yeaaaahhhh.)

I'm buying a 3TB HDD soon. Anybody have any feelings on WD Red vs Green? Only a year difference in warranty. Drive will be used solely for media storage (movies, tv shows, pictures, music).

Sounds like Green is just fine. Reds give you warranty and are better suited for RAID and NAS apllications.
Save yourself the trouble and don't ask why the TV remote is in the refrigerator.

I got a WD 3TB external a few months back. After migrating the data off of the machine and blowing it away, going to pop the drive out of the case and mount it internal.

http://www.muscleandstrength.com/forum/ ... d-hawthorn 600lb deadlift, he's 132lbs. It's still 600lbs raw. Granted he's short and has long arms which gives him a huge mechanic advantage in the deadlift. Most people agree that 1X bodyweight bench, 1.75x bodyweight squat, and 2xbodyweight deadlift are sufficient strength. I'm a little over those and climbing... as is my weight :D

The PT has told me I probably shouldn't do conventional deads again so I don't know how I'll do on that :( I have a well over bodyweight bench; I finally felt good enough to do bench and pull ups this week and did 235 for sets of 5 on bench and sets of 5 band assisted pullups (got a bit squishy after hurting myself...gotta work that off!).

I assume it's a Green? Why did you buy an external in the first place? I have a serious dislike of externals. They just don't make a whole ton of sense to me.

Useful as a back up you can keep in a different area; I need to start doing that again actually. One in my snake building to back up the home PC.

Oh I get the idea behind them. Just wondering why he bought it if the intention was to pop it out of the case and put it in his machine. But hey, that probably wasn't the original idea.

Sometimes an external is actually cheaper than the equivalent internal.

Does it void the warranty? I've often wondered about that.

(Obviously it would void the warranty on the external enclosure; but I wonder if you could still RMA the bare drive if necessary.)

I don't know. It only comes with a 1yr, so as long as it lasts longer than that, it's a moot point.

True. But that is also a potential reason to avoid doing this, as bare drives tend to have 2 (or more) years of warranty.
