Except for Habitat day, I biked every day this week. Great week.

Tired, achey, but back on the bike

Though tired, stiff and achey from my one day at Habitat, I biked today. Looks like the rain is going to stay away.... I hope.

Great - a little too close to my heel, but nice. Biked Friday, Monday...

bikety, bike, bike

Today. Today, I go find out about a basket/rack....

Wednesday, April 23, 2003

Bike, bike, bike

Today and yesterday YES! Biked to and from work!!!

I need a rack - it is a drag to wear a bag. Either that or get a new bag....

semi-bike day
Too much to carry, so I biked to the bus, and let the bus take me to work........

*sigh* no bike today....

Cold and drizzly; not worth the trouble... Tried to fix up the JoyRide program, we'll see if it is better.

Windy day!

Biked in - but I think riding the bus home is a good choice, if it is as windy as it was this morning.

zzzzzzzzzzzing another ride into work! Great!

JoyRide - bells and whistles done mostly. Need to step back and avoid feature-creep (though I like the X-Prize idea...)

  • Document!
  • METRIC or English feature
  • lite version?
  • Ballistic X-Prize version?

Lots of weekend work on Joyride - added synodic periods, escape velocities for all the planets, shift GLOW to payload, "classic" ship weights. Tightened the linkage between

I need to write a manual now, discalaimers and update the web page.

AND.... I biked to work this morning.

Go Solar!

Woke up ... seemed light out, and the alarm clock was *BLANK*!

Power was out - probably for about 5 hours. Quickly scrambled to wake Liv and Norris. Liv got to the bus on time, even! Power came back on around 7:30, and I got to work around one hour late ... BIKING, of course!

Getting too easy

Another day, another bike ride. Yesterday I went BOTH ways, not cheating my way home on the bus. No Joyride progress last night

Sailing again today - to work on my bike! Yes!

Some weekend work on the Joyride project. I'm adding a menu with the mass of various well known spacecraft, crewed and not.

A good weekend to work on moving to another planet... or at least leaving this one for a while

Friday, March 21, 2003

No bike today, or yesterday - hopefully more next week!

Looking at and for Solar Sail web sites, it seems that the Sailaway project has vanished. It would be great if we could see more solar sail work...

Sailed on to work again on my bike does that count as solar sailing? I'm the energy source, and I'm powered by food, and food is... grown by the sun, yes?

A great tool to look around the Solar System, and plan your trip!
Moving around the Solar System

It is easy to move around the Solar System and see things:

Anyone who wants to plan a trip can go to and get a spaceship design tool - I'll write more about that later.

The most important travel note : Today I rode my bike to work for the first time in 2003!

Where IS MrKlingon?
