This is a SWAG for calories burned cycling 12-15mph:

* Divide your feet climbed by 10.
* Divide again by your average MPH.
* Add that to your total miles.
* Multiply the new number by the weight in pounds of you, your bike, and everything you're carrying.
* Multiply the new number by 0.105

Debian (and Ubuntu and others) use apt, aptitude, apt-get, and dpkg. apt currently requires the Release keys to match in a complex way. Mondo, Docker, and many other projects have problems making a repo actually work. The telltale failure is similar to this:

I was importing things from dreamwidth into Wordpress, and then it copied it all back to dreamwidth. *sigh* I bet I have a hundred posts to remove here.

He grabbed her elbow with his giant hands, twisting, and pulling, until the crunch.

With a grunt, all of the ligaments snapped, and the entire radius was pulled through the skin.

He put the rest of her forearm in his giant mouth, and using his teeth, scraped and slurped all of her muscles loose.

I ponder macro-nutrition needs a whole bunch. Here's what I have handy, though my technical references are scattered and omitted.

There's always a need for roughage, vitamins, and minerals, which come from foods with very low calories/kilojoules. Aside from that, the three main macros have

Max bodyfat you can burn in an hour is roughly 1 gram per 10 pounds, or in calories, 9 times your weight in pounds.

Anything else is food, muscle glycogen, or actual muscle tissue. Glycogen max is about 4% lean muscle mass, which usually is enough for 90 mins, plus or minus. Food is whatever is in your gut, though exercise slows digestion.

Lost most of the details, but we were at a party, restaurant was Josh Vernon's, brass and marble. Well lit, open floor mingling, our company had the whole place. It was in a mall, but so was my company, a research firm.

Putting JFS2 on non-LVM block devices has been working for a long time. I​ wrote up how to put JFS2 on a ramdisk back at AIX 4.3.3. I lost the techdoc from back then, but IBM has a newer re-write dated 2008 here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=isg3T1010722

Mark loves to prod me about cross-chaining, because it's formally a naughty-no-no. I thought I'd give some observations, since I am a chronic cross-chainer.

Cross chaining wears the sides of the sprockets, which is never what wears out. I ride like I am a 1x9 unless I'm on hills. No

Starting your car A/C / benzene chain letter has popped up in several places again recently. That letter is FAKE. No need to worry.

DETAILS:
It's a rewrite of a 2009 chain letter, which is false, and based on cherry picked information out of a 2001 report on automobiles in Korea, and a 2007

When did "millennials" get redefined?

"Generations" for grouping (vs ancestry) have been roughly 15 year spans. Generation X was the 1970s through about '85. After that was Generation Y. Millennials, by definition, were people born at or after the turn of the millennium. Being generous, that

Middle of the dream... family and I were meeting up for dinner. The place was similar to a Cracker Barrel, except it was upscale. Lots of wood, but more open space, different kinds of goods, and I think there was a Casino off the other side.

Optimal tire size and pressure isn't always known. Here is a great calculator I use when I set up bikes.

The "Bike + Rider" weight is usually about 10% over your out-of-the-shower weight, and includes your clothes, tool bag, bottles, bike, etc.
