Weird dream
Josh 2014
joshdavis
Middle of the dream... family and I were meeting up for dinner. The place was similar to a Cracker Barrel, except it was upscale. Lots of wood, but more open space, different kinds of goods, and I think there was a Casino off the other side.

The waiter was someone we know. He called me by

Bicycle Tire Pressure
Josh 2014
joshdavis
Optimal tire size and pressure isn't always known. Here is a great calculator I use when I set up bikes.

The "Bike + Rider" weight is usually about 10% over your out-of-the-shower weight, and includes your clothes, tool bag, bottles, bike, etc.

The middle calculator automatically shows

Gym Workout Routines

I was talking with a friend about my Gym routine, I thought I'd share some of that here. It's kind of a wall of text, soI tried to organize it for easy skimming.

I keep a notepad on my phone to track what I did and what's next. End of workout, I add the updated list to MyFitnessPal in the

Three Dinosaur Giraffe Butts, and a shovel
Josh 2014
joshdavis
Phrase for 2017-2018 school year is "Three Dinosaur Giraffe Butts".

The mantra is "Shovel" from grovel from gravel from gratitude.

The shovel head is the size of a spoon, and the handle is 35 feet long, and at a sharp angle. It is designed to move a piece of gravel weighing 18 tons, and about

Accountability
Josh 2014
joshdavis
Going to the gym is so much easier when there's a buddy to go with you. At the expensive gym, I had a trainer. At the cheap gym, I'd go 2-3 times a week, and one of those would be with Max. Max is out of town for 10 days.

BUT, after a month on my own, my shoulders are bigger. It FEELS weird, and a bunch of my shirts don't come down far enough in the back anymore (already hard to get tall shirts).

I didn't lose any weight, but I've bumped up my gym weights (by mass, or by repetitions) every week. I have a note on my phone that lists the setting and repetitions of each exercise, and I update that between sets. I use an HRM strap and upload workouts to MFP, then update the description with the list (Garmin and MyFitnessPal).

So, I need to suck it up and go tomorrow anyway. My back has been a bit sore, so I've tried to work around that. Bench row instead of cable/mid row; no bend/twist exercises; To compensate, I need to add planks all 4 sides, plus leg lifts for core strength.

AIX and PowerHA versions 2017-06
Josh 2014
joshdavis
This changes periodically, but for today, here is what I would do.

My PowerHA selection process would be:
* 7.1.3 SP06 if I needed to deploy quickly, because I have build docs for that.
* 7.1.4 doesn't exist, but if it came out before deployment, I would consider it. Whichever was a newer

Sorry, LJ people.

So, dreamwidth was a fork by some LJ developers back in 2008.

They can import LJ, and I've done so at http://xaminmo.dreamwidth.org

I do not know what I think yet. Too early. They are limited in some ways.

Insufficient Federal Withholdings

joshdavis
Our 2016 tax liability was about $400 less than for 2015.
I also set my W4 withholdings to 3 from 4 in March, 2016.
My company withheld $1300 less for 2016 than for 2015.
For the first time in 25 years, I OWE the IRS during tax reconciliation.

It looks like my utilization checks had
