2019 Bike commutes

2019 Bike commutes

@ Adrian Tritschler

Annual bike commute summary and statistics. I think I rode to work every day this year, at least I can’t remember catching the bus. Shortest ride was around 2-3km when I had to drive to my parents in law’s house and ride from there. Longest was probably 30-40km on a Thursday or Friday afternoon when I can take a detour on the way home and go exploring. From the visualisation of all the GPX tracks I saved its all variations on a theme and either straight out and back each day or an approximately anti-clockwise loop.
Strava and Relive breakup

Strava and Relive breakup

@ Adrian Tritschler

Well it was fun while it lasted, and the most fun of all seems to be the interpretations of the decision by Strava to disconnect Relive from accessing data: Strava’s email to Strava/Relive users Many of us at Strava have enjoyed using Relive over the last few years, but because of Relive’s recent updates, unfortunately, we have decided to end this integration. The current version of Relive violates several of the terms that we ask of API partners.

@ Adrian Tritschler

Well the intention today had been to drive in to Stawell and ride out along the Grampians Rail Trail back towards Halls Gap, but circumstances conspired against us – a longer than anticipated hike up to The Pinnacle in the morning, a late arrival in Stawell for lunch and finding the town much larger and more spread out than expected. Instead we decided to start heading back towards Melbourne straight after lunch, but to stop in Ballarat for a lap of Lake Wendouree.

Going AWOL at the top of Teddy's Lookout Escape for a couple of hours in the afternoon; out of the car port and straight down into town without time to warm up. Then ten kilometres of the climb up Benwerrin, I suspect that I’ll never again surpass my quickest time up the climb. Turn left at the top and today there are no march flies, then there’s a quiet ten kilometres or so along the dirt road along the ridge.
Org mode visualisation for 2019

Org mode visualisation for 2019

@ Adrian Tritschler

Following on from last year and the org-workflow post in 2017, I’m still generating graphs from my Org mode notes for 2019. Here’s this year: Bookmarks The pile of unread bookmarks: Still stubbornly hovering around 50, there’s a number of items that I must get through some time when I’ve got time and inclination. A change in workflow as I now use pinboard.in for most of my quick bookmarks means that all that I’ve got left in the graph above are the old items.

A few weeks ago I followed a link to a visualisation of someone’s bike ride on https://relive.cc and was impressed with the insight it gave to a ride. So I signed in, carefully read the terms and conditions and privacy policy as one always does… and linked it with my strava account. Of course since then I don’t think I’ve ridden anywhere interesting, so it has waited until yesterday afternoon’s long ride home to get a decent video of my own.

A topic dear to my heart, via http://norman.walsh.name//2011/10/18/gpxGoogle and a few quick hacks on the GPX from today’s lunchtime walk: plotTracks(mapdata,"mapA"); plotTracks(mapdata, "mapB"); plotTracks(mapdata, "mapC"); plotTracks(mapdata, "map"); <2017-11-15 Wed> Update – currently broken During migration from Org mode & jekyll to Org mode & hugo. <2018-09-16 Sun> Update – and fixed I finally got a round tuit and spent some time looking at embedding and escaping and have got the embedded javascript to pass from Org mode’s markdown export to hugo and display correctly.
GPS Visualisation

GPS Visualisation

Thursday, Jun 16, 2011

@ Adrian Tritschler

Something I’ve been looking for for ages, a good way of visualising the many GPX tracks I’ve saved over the years. Today I stumbled on Alexander Avtanski’s GPS Track Visualization and here’s the results of my logged lunchtime walks so far for 2011: GPS Visualisation - Lunchtime walks by ajft, on Flickr Minor annoyance so far, although it works fine for me on the GPX tracks I’ve generated on the iPhone in Endomondo and then downloaded from the endomondo website, it barfs on the GPX from generated by the Garmin Edge 305 or 705 and then downloaded from Garmin Connect.

@ Adrian Tritschler

Is this useful? I guess it could be, rather than the myriad of web presences and individual icons that every site uses, to have one default icon used everywhere. Once you’ve registered on http://www.gravatar.com/ you can upload assorted image icons, these can then be referenced from anywhere via a URL based on the MD5 hash of the email address: echo -n ajft@ajft.org|md5sum See also: WPMonsterID :: Dammit Jim!

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

…The Site

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
