@  wonko the sane? : (08 April 2020 - 08:42 AM)

It is. Thankfully, we don't use the thing too often. It was purchased to help take down one tree and spends about 362 days a year sitting in the shop.

@  Darkstream : (08 April 2020 - 08:23 AM)

Sounds tedious

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 06:25 PM)

grinding wheel on a dremel and a lot of patience.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 06:11 PM)

What do you use to sharpen it? I was debating buying one of those kits on Amazon

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 11:49 AM)

Wasn't the first time. I probably did it one of the times the chain jumped the blade, or when I was cleaning it or sharpening it.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 11:38 AM)

Sounds like something I'd do. I always install things backwards first.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 07:32 AM)

Not while I'm outside working with the chainsaw. If it's working fine: then I don't need it. If it's NOT working; I use hand tools cause there is a job that brought me out there. No time to read.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 April 2020 - 03:07 AM)

You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (05 April 2020 - 03:34 PM)

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2020 - 11:26 AM)

We'll always be together. Together in electric dreams.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Please remember that in these times of social distancing, we'll always be together however far it seems.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 April 2020 - 11:07 AM)

I could never master oral bullshittery. But in my day I was quite adept with the written word.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (01 April 2020 - 11:32 PM)

You have mastered the art of Bulljive. You must use this power only for good, or entertainment.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

Shirtless bike riding?

I'm not out in the world or a gym or anything. Just me, in my basement, on my stationary. It prevents my shirt from absorbing sweat, and helps me shed a little more heat a little more effectively.

 

4171.01+9.74=4180.75

 

I'm slowly increasing the time I spend on the bike too: Currently, every second day is 35 minutes as opposed to 30. I'll probably be up to 35 entirely early in the new year. We need to make 5K next year, after all. On a perhaps related note: the pants I always wear when I clean the bathrooms slid clean off my ass today. Granted, not new pants or in good shape or anything, but it is a new development.

So I crapped out this week.  Went all prepared to mountain bike this morning, got to the trailhead...and it was pissing down rain and was forcasted to continue doing so for 45 minutes.  By that point the trails would have been no good to ride.  Ah well.  Headed home to Illinois tomorrow.

Also: I am craving jerky like its a drug. I have no idea why.

Thanks to being diagnosed with this: http://www.webmd.com...s-gastroparesis I'll never be overweight again.   However, I still have to keep a healthy diet and exercise (moderately as not to put stress on my stomach).

That's not good :(  I hope you never get to the feeding tube level:(

 

Missed one day of working out (thanks for my nephew messing up my schedule) but I'll make up.  I'm also 17lbs or 22lbs over my usual weight.  ARGH.  So the goal next year is to go about 1lbs a week so I'm 16lbs lighter by the end of April.  Grrr!  Determination!

I caught a wicked cold: I don't feel very bad, but the congestion is keeping me from breathing, which is stopping me from sleeping so I'm drop dead exhausted. I haven't had a decent nights sleep since christmas eve. I'm probably not going to be able to jump back on the bike on monday like I wanted.

 

Damnit.

4200miles for 2015?  So, like, we're really doing 5k next year?  We might need more fitness folks, hehe  I guess we'd get an influx of New Year's Resolution resolvers?

 

Missed two workouts, ugh, but will make up.

Woot!

 

 

I made up a work out schedule for the entire year of 2016 to get me to doing more exercise than just walking everyday. While I have been doing a lot of low intensity cardio, I still haven't managed to get any weight loss. So the coming up year, I will stick to this exercise plan and watch my diet a lot more closely.

I'm out of town right now and don't feel like messing with it all on my iPad. So if somebody wants to start the 2016 page go ahead. If not, remember your miles and on the 4th or so I'll have the new page started.

So we'll remember the miles we got starting from Jan 1, you mean?  Sure.

 

Did a mile and a half but, at this rate, seems too few to add to Predaking's 4200.05 miles, hehe.

 

Having a workout schedule for the whole year is nice but hopefully flexible.  I've been doing the superhero workouts since have no gym. It's all squats and mountain cllimbers though, haha.

Of course Snow is stupid. He knows nothing. (I don't watch Game of Thrones tho)

My last workout of the year will be flailing in the pool, yay!

 

edit - too many kids in the pool.  Went to free use gym.  Holy cow, I was straining again!  Felt good though.
