181. almost three months of running
I have had a few foot injuries and setbacks, but overall I am pleased with my training progress. I'm now capable of doing around 20 miles per week. I'm actually amazed at how quickly I've been able to increase my mileage. I think that switching from a heel-strike to a ...

183. 2010 Melon Run in Gainesville, FL
I'm still having running soreness and pains (including a new pain in my ankle) so I decided not to run the Melon Run on this humid 4th of July morning. This 3-mile race is apparently a Gainesville tradition. The Melon Run is sponsored by the Florida Track Club. While spectating ...

184. Use Cotton Balls to Treat Top of Foot ...
Now that I have been running barefoot and in minimalist shoes for a few weeks, I no longer get soreness or pain in my calves. However, I am discouraged because I developed pain in the top of my right foot. Research ensued. This condition is aptly nicknamed TOFP (Top of ...

185. Vibram FiveFingers Bikila
The other day I was running in my Huarache Sandals. Another runner caught up with me and started to chat since he had never seen anyone running in huaraches before. He was wearing Newton running shoes and told me that he owned some Vibram FiveFingers. It seems like FiveFingers (VFF) ...

186. RunAmoc running moccasins from Soft Star Shoes
I really wanted to love the RunAmoc, and not just because of the awesome name. The Huarache Sandals that I made a few weeks ago had some discomfort around the toe knot. I didn't want to jump on the Vibram FiveFingers bandwagon just yet. Minimalist shoes such as the Vivobarefoot ...

187. New blog topic for Running posts
I decided to create a whole new blog topic to congregate my Running posts. http://thatlinuxbox.com/blog/index.ph...ic=running I guess this means I will have to continue posting about running... which means I will also have to keep running... so really this is a motivational tool as well.

Surprise!

190. Huarache Sandals
I made a pair of huarache sandals using a kit from InvisibleShoe.com . Getting the lacing right is the hardest part. Walking around in the yard they were incredible... bring on the sticks, pine cones, and sweetgum balls! However, on hard surfaces I could definitely feel the knot under the ...

191. My Third Barefoot Run
I ran 2.5 miles total yesterday, 1.25 of that barefooted. I have discovered that running barefoot on Florida sun-baked concrete sidewalks gives me blisters... almost instantly. Not fun. I'm eagerly awaiting the pair of RunAmoc running moccasins that I ordered from Soft Star Shoes. I added "Last of the Mohicans" ...

193. My Second Barefoot Run
I have one word to describe my second barefoot run... CALVES! Yes, the calves are quite sore. I ran 2.25 miles today, 1.5 of that barefooted. Most of the run was on dirt trails, some of them twisty with the occasional tree root. I was quite surprised that the rougher ...

194. Barefoot Running
The spare tire around my middle has expanded to a maximum allowable level! After a multi-year hiatus, I started running again a few weeks ago. I really want to keep it going and make it a regular activity. I used an old pair of Nike running shoes, which were fine ...

197. Alachua County Friends of the Library Book Sale ...
The Alachua County Friends of the Library spring book sale has come and gone. I love that sale! I had my Droid with me so I could look up book reviews using the Amazon shopping app for each book before buying... thus I bought a few more books than last ...

198. Linux Home Theater PC - HTPC
Our digital media collection was ready to exceed the disk space of the old home file server. For the past few years I used a small, quiet, low-power PC to function as the home file server, print server, and staging/Intranet web server. This machine was powered by a Via C3 ...

199. Kato's Island Sauce is spicy and delicious
Another festival... another bottle of hot sauce. I bought this one at the 1st Annual Melrose Butterfly Festival. Kato's Island Sauce with Habanero & Mango is sweet, spicy, and delicious! It was great on chicken, steak, and black bean burgers.

I have been spending time in the Gimp making graphics for my wife's web site, so I decided to make a logo for my blog. It is not fancy, just a retro tech font with a transparent background. Here's what it should look like in the header bar for thatlinuxbox.com:

204. irssi + dtach + Droid + ConnectBot to ...
My favorite IRC client is "irssi" because it only requires a shell / terminal window to run. I can leave it running on a reliable machine and logged into the IRC network for long periods of time. Staying logged into IRC allows me to catch up on recent activity in ...

205. Server Racks after the Cleanup
In a previous story, I showed What NOT to do in your server room. Over the past year I have been able to improve that server room a little bit. In addition to a general rack cleanup effort, I installed a whole new rack with square holes and plenty of ...

206. Serial Console Settings for IBM pSeries RS/6000
I like to document things that seem to be harder to find on the Internet than expected. One such piece of information I needed the other day was the connection information for a serial console connection to an IBM pSeries server. Step 1: Dig around in your server room storage ...

207. CrunchBang Linux on Acer Aspire One AO751h
Months after purchasing the Acer Aspire One AO751h, I was still looking for a Linux distribution that works well with the embedded (cursed!) Intel GMA 500 graphics drivers, aka Poulsbo. Ubuntu 9.04 or other distributions sourced on Jaunty Jackalope seem to be the easiest to make usable on this hardware ...

208. Improve compile time on multi-core Linux systems
While compiling a piece of software from source the other day, I noticed that my CPU was only at about 50% utilization. This reminded me that the build tools can be set to execute multiple operations simultaneously. The CONCURRENCY_LEVEL environment variable is used by many tools to determine the number ...

As mentioned in thatlinuxbox.com now runs on a Linode, I switched from A2 Hosting to Linode a few weeks ago. The new Linode server is running great so today I canceled my A2 Hosting account. I ditched A2 Hosting because the low apache MaxClients settings meant my sites were giving ...
