    yep....matter of trial & error until something worked!. Having a job that that requires 3 passwords just to log in to everything daily, that then have to be changed quarterly (& can't be one you've used before), means it's easy to lose track of these things!

    I just change the digits at the end of mine. Less to remember - "now I know it's HitchyIsGheyXX and I think the last one was 68, so it must be HitchyIsGhey69"

    I wish....the farkin protocols for passwords around this place are unbelievable....gotta be x number of digits/letters different than the previous one or it won't accept it. Takes me half an hour to think of something that will satisfy all the rules, that I'll actually remember.....then to make matters worse, get it wrong 3 times (& it doesn't show you what you've typed) & you get locked out & have to ring the propeller heads in IT, interrupt their 'World of warcraft' session to get the fuckers to reset it....then begin the whole process again!

    Can you just bang randomly at the keyboard and then cut and paste the confirmation, then next time you need to login use the "Have you forgotten your password" feature after that which resets the passwords, rinse and repeat?

    Either that or post it notes with your password stuck to the monitor.

    To be honest, Paul and Roshea have gone passed me. Ha. Paul's got a whole bunch of wind maps that I think he gets from NASA, and Roshea has hacked into every weather satellite and camera in existence

    CSI TAN time again - forensic analysis of Strava data.

    http://app.strava.com/activities/200879631/analysis

    The guy who died on an MTB ride last weekend - uploaded by a friend later: "Hi Everyone, I had to upload My Good Mate Paul, ride for the Police to study. Paul will be so greatly missed Please All don't forget Paul "

    Zooming into the map and looking at the other data, could everything after 26 km be explained by GPS "drift"? Looks like his HR peaked over 200 BPM then flatlined (at 168 - hmm) while the bike did short random zigs and zags. I don't have a Garmin device - is this the sort of thing that happens if you leave the computer on after you stop riding?

    Hmmm, who knows? With all the wind we've had, my HR monitor was giving all sorts of bodgy readings.

    My guess is that the device was buggered. Either right on or just after the 202 HR reading.

    Nice. Is that the same one you had a few years ago? Are the Enve's grouse? What about the Scapin?

    Someone elsewhere suggested that GPS has trouble locking on to satellites in heavily wooded areas (zoom in and switch to satellite view) and that might cause this behaviour.

    AHA!

    Things go pretty normally until about 1:44 but after that I think it's just garbage.
