Peter's lack of fitness makes baby jesus cry

by Peter Tyrrell Monday, September 19, 2005 10:09 AM

Started a new gym regimen this morning, based on consultation with a personal trainer.

On the very first superset (leg extensions! squats! leg extensions! squats!), I thought I was going to die.

Then I definitely did die, but obviously I went straight to hell because it only got worse. All the exercises are done to fatigue. Fatigue achieved? Check. Muscle fibres collapsing and sliding off the bone? Check.

At one point I was pushing about 20 lbs with both legs, and whimpering. Actually maybe the chinups were the most hilarious. Today was the light day for legs. Ha ha!


Internet connection fluctuates

In a stunning exposé released just this morning, Peter's internet connection speed was found to have been fluctuating in recent weeks, say experts at Shaw Cable Victoria.

This astounding discovery was made during a routine check on the high-speed modem, which had been stopped by authorities when it failed to deliver the morning email. Shaw Cable's advisory alert system was immediately upgraded to "Paisley", and citizens are advised to stay indoors until Del the repair guy comes round tomorrow probably between 8 and 5.

A distraught and visibly shaken Mr. Tyrrell was unavailable for comment but has received extra coffee ration and was last seen shucking his wordly vestments in favour of sackcloth and ashes.

Utilitarian origami

To a Rational like me, nothing is better than a useful yet simple tool. A free disposable personal organizer? Sign me up. PocketMod - "Nothing beats a folded up piece of paper." So true. And uh, probably could fill in as a pocket protector in a pinch.


Javascript tools

Debugging javascript is akin to charting the Northwest Passage through yeti-infested ice with a small nubbin of chalk to mark where you've been. The Venkman debugger for Mozilla/Firefox is nice, but highly complicated, as debuggers tend to be. I'm a simple man, with simple tastes, and probably a simple ton. I'm happy then, to say the least, to find this method at A List Apart: Javascript logging with fvlogger. Basically a trace log with different levels of info. Huzzah!
