151. The Two-Thirds Method for Estimating Projects - It ...
In a previous post about attending the Agile 2010 conference, I included some quotes from Arin Sime who presented a talk on using range estimates rather than single-point estimates: "Single point estimates are almost always overly optimistic." "There is a limit to how well a project can go, but no ...

152. New Server Rack UPSes
Today I replaced the old UPSes that had been powering our server rack... well, I should say that I replaced the dead one as well as its brother who was still hanging on for dear life. This is the vintage of old UPS I removed: We replaced the old units ...

153. Good Running Form video
A great video on running form / technique: I first saw this video posted by the Learn to Run initiative: http://www.facebook.com/learntorun * Update 1.20.2011 * For me, "neutral hips" is not a sufficient cue... I have always tended to slouch so "neutral" to me would be too far back, even ...

154. It has come to this with my VFF
I love and hate my Vibram FiveFingers Bikila running shoes. I love that I can wear them and have beautiful runs like today, where I had a segment that felt perfect and effortless. I love that they have great traction on wet surfaces (better than my bare feet). I love ...

155. Wireless Banana
The last bunch of bananas we bought came with extra features. This banana appears to have wireless capability. I have not yet figured out how to activate it, though.

156. Dad filming large gator at Alachua Sink
This picture is from 2003 near the La Chua trail. This is probably the biggest alligator with which we were able to get up close and personal:

157. Software to help you live longer
I read an article today that says "it is entirely possible to meet current physical activity guidelines while still being incredibly sedentary." It goes on to say that people like me who sit in front of computers all day are doomed to an early death (ok, I'm exaggerating a little ...

158. Tools for a wintery office environment
Although I really like the glass windows in my office, they do seem to make things chilly when it is cold outside. The temperature when I walked into my office this morning was 59 degrees Fahrenheit. Space heaters to the rescue! This is a bit ironic considering I am located ...

159. Fiction Read During 2010
In 2010, I read 44 works of fiction, which is about half as many as I read the previous year. My interest continued to be mostly in the Speculative / Science Fiction genre. Many of these books were my lucky finds at the Alachua County Friends of the Library book ...

160. Merrell Trail Glove may be minimalist shoe perfection
Jason Robillard writes that "no shoe has come closer to minimalist perfection" than the Merrell Trail Glove in his review posted at Barefoot Running University. The full review: http://barefootrunninguniversity.com/2011/01/04/merrell-trail-glove-review/ A shoe like the Vibram FiveFingers without the toe pockets sounds really great to me.

163. Tron Video Dating Service
With the upcoming movie release of Tron Legacy, it felt fitting to share this video made by my brother-in-law a few years ago:

164. LSI MegaRAID - megacli
I recently gained my first experience with the infamous MegaCli command line configuration utility for LSI-based RAID controllers. This utility apparently also works on re-branded LSI cards from Dell (certain PERC cards) and other vendors. Our New servers from iXsystems included LSI 9260 MegaRAID adapters. These servers run FreeBSD and ...

165. Unknown Stoner at Disney
Disney issues cards to guests who stay at their resorts. One of our cards was issued to an "Unknown Stoner":

166. six months of running
After 6 months of running, I am feeling pretty good. I lost 20 pounds and have avoided developing any serious running injuries. I totaled over 400 miles. I finished a half marathon. I have successfully converted my running stride so that I land with a midfoot strike rather than a ...

167. New servers from iXsystems
We received our shiny new servers from iXsystems (http://www.ixsystems.com). iXsystems "strives to provide the highest quality storage solutions, custom rackmount servers, pedestal servers, and appliances running FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and various versions of Linux such as RedHat, SuSE, Slackware, and Debian." We went with a FreeBSD specialist vendor to eliminate ...

168. Installed the SocialShare geeklog plugin
This plugin adds social network buttons to each geeklog story and makes it easier for readers to share a story with others. Available from SocialShare Plugin. I had some trouble with this install due mostly to documentation issues.

169. In Search of the Perfect Running Shoe
The worst thing about trying to choose new running shoes is that it is almost impossible to know how they will perform without testing them in the wild on a few runs (or 10 - 20 miles). Six months ago I decided that I was going to start running regularly ...

170. Distance Medley Relay at 2010 Penn Relays
I always enjoyed the relay meets when running track in high school and college. Here is some nice video of the 2010 Penn Relays - Distance Medley event. The Distance Medley is comprised of four runners each running a different distance: 1200M, 400M, 800M, 1600M.

171. Changes to thatlinuxbox style sheet
I made some minor changes to the thatlinuxbox style sheet. I adjusted the size of some of the headings, decreased the font size for most of the text, and changed the story body text color from black to a dark grey (that's #333333 for you web geeks).

172. Fall 2010 - Alachua County Friends of the ...
The Alachua County Friends of the Library fall 2010 book sale is over. I was happy to find a few copies of books I had already read to add to my keeper / loaner bookshelf. In particular, "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson is great to have so I can loan ...

173. barefoot running foot strike slow motion - adult ...
I took some video of myself and my 3-year old daughter running barefoot to compare our foot strikes / running form. Each segment is at full speed, then slow motion at half speed, and then even slower at quarter speed. I have a forefoot strike. My daughter has a midfoot ...

175. John Holmes Trail Run - Race Report
Saturday I ran the John Holmes 16 Mile trail run at the John Holmes 50k Trail Run and 16 Mile Fun Run in the Withlacoochee State Forest, Florida (the area is sometimes known as the Croom hiking trails). I finished! That was my longest run ever in my whole life... ...

176. Web Accessibility Summit at UF
Last week, the University of Florida Web Administration team hosted the Environments for Humans - Web Accessibility Summit 2010 (#a11ysummit on Twitter). I was able to attend at no cost to my department. Being a UF employee has its perks from time to time. http://environmentsforhumans.com/2010/accessibility-summit/ It was a great event ...

Finally got around to upgrading the site to the latest version of Geeklog.

178. What I learned at the Agile2010 Conference
I attended a conference, yeah! The Agile 2010 Software Development Conference was held in Orlando, Florida from August 9-13. The last technical conference I attended was OSCON (Open Source Convention) 2006 in Portland, Oregon. Agile 2010 was a really great opportunity for me to jump-start my transition from system administrator ...

179. My Minimalist Running Shoe Comparison
Below is a list of my running footwear, how many miles I have put on them, and some opinion about each. I also thought it would also be amusing to include my wife's initial reaction upon first seeing each type of shoe. Sorted by mileage:

180. Nike Free Run Plus
My Nike Free Run+ shoes have become my primary running shoe. They do well on roads and sidewalks and are very forgiving if my legs are tired. Minimalist shoes like the Vibram FiveFingers are not forgiving at all. The Nike Free Run+ do a good job on trails, too. Here ...
