Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Week 3, finally day 2

Bike ride this morning. Now: 20/25/15/15/35 pushups (total 110).

It's interesting to compare my own stamina with the notes on It looks like 45 consecutive pushups, which I could do a week ago, is the requirement to start week 5. However, I'm nowhere near being able to do the column 3 numbers for day 1 of week 5. I wonder if it's because I'm not doing much other exercise, apart from a little walking -- are my muscles strong enough, but my heart and lungs can't keep up?

Second p0st: Proudly rough and hackerish

Oh, we have an election too!

I almost forgot - New Zealand's general election (for prime minister and all of parliament) is today. Results here from 7pm, when polls close.
