Fix Chrome to support extensions

I bumped in to another problem with my new browser. My AdSweep just stopped working so i started to search for a solution. The fix is to switch from Beta to Dev, because it seems that they disabled extensions in the beta version. I found the fix here :)

Blood preasure

Yesterday I bought a fan to make the riding on the trainer more pleasant. It is not the real thing but it's a bit better. Now I have to ride with glasses because the fan is set to maximum speed :)

Last night I measured my blood pressure and my pulse. After about 3 minutes my blood pressure was 210/100 and my pulse was 136. Then I was riding for about 20 minutes and I managed to get my pulse up to 166, and my blood pressure to 212/94. I'm sure that on a race day my pulse gets higher  :)

Last ride with the red beast

Saturday I took my road bike out for the last time this year :(

The roads are getting very dirty and the fog was very thick. I had to clean the bike when I got home, it got wet from the fog and dirty from the road. I managed to go only 40 minutes (16,5km) because the fog was very thick and it was to dangerous to ride on a public road :(

This wasn't a good year for my red bike because I bought a mountain bike but I hope next year I will get her out more and I'll keep riding her on the trainer until next spring :)

Training stats

Yesterday i mounted the cyclocomputer to the rear tire to have some statistics :)
I am riding for about 40 minutes. I start wit a warm up, about 5-6 minutes. Then 7 minutes at a speed that is slightly hard to maintain (about 40-42 km/h), after that 3 minutes at a lower speed (20-24 km/h). I repeat this two more times. After this workout I stay on the bike for another 5 minutes to relax.

So here are the statistics from last nights work out:
    - time: 40 minutes
    - avg speed: 32,1 km/h
    - distance: 21,45 km
    - max speed: 63,7 km/h

There is an xls file on the minoura website so I looked up my performance. I produce about 200 W :)

I will get back with pictures and more statistics soon.

The browsers I use

A few weeks ago I started using the Google browser, Chrome 4 beta. It is a lot faster then Firefox :D
The only reason I still use Firefox sometimes is the Firebug :)

The only problem with Chrome is that it doesn't display pdf files. I searched around and I found the fix. Just resize the window and the document magically appears :D

Firefox vs Chrome
What is better in FF:
    - Firebug
    - how you can search in the history, you just type part of the URL or the page title and it searches in the history
    - you can delete pages from the history just pressing "Delete"

What is better in Chrome:
    - speed
    - syncing browsing data with your Google account, this way if you have more computers you can have all your bookmarks and history everywhere :)

I'm waiting for FF 4, and I'm curious if it will beat Chrome 4, but if Chrome will have Firebug I will downgrade Firefox to testing browser  :)

My Browsers:
    - Chrome: main browser
    - Firefox: only for debugging
    - Opera: did you know it has a torrent client? ;)
    - ie: just for testing or downloading other browsers on a fresh windows install :D

Very Funny!!!

I was looking for this video and finally today I found it (without searching) :D

I saw my friends again...

This weekend I went for a ride with a friend. It was almost the same trail as last week. The weather was OK  but the trail was more slippery than last week so I hit the ground on the way home :(

On the field the deers jumped in front of me. I wasn't prepared so I couldn't take a picture with all of them :( I think these were the same deers I saw a week before. I'll try to catch all of them (about 15 deers) with my camera next week :)

    - time: 2 hours (with a lot of stops to get the mud off the bikes)
    - distance: 23,74 km
    - avg speed: 11,81 km/h
    - max speed: 60,5 km/h (on asphalt)

I'm definitely out of the cave :D

YES!!! As you've seen in my previous post I have a PC. Maybe I was the only programmer in the world that didn't have a PC (or laptop) at home :D

I left my laptop home at my parent this spring. After the cycling season ended I decided that it's time to buy a PC. First I bought the monitor/tv (SyncMaster 2333HD) and then the black box :D

    - Gigabyte  motherboard
    - AMD Phenom II X2 @ 3GHz
    - 2x2GB DDR3 Kingston memory
    - 500GB HDD Western Digital
    - 9600GT Video Card with 1GB DDR3 for the games :D
    - Asus DVD  writer


Last night I finally got my trainer :D It is a Minoura M50  and it was ordered from here. It was very easy to mount so I tried it last night. I was sweating very much, like in a sauna. Now I know why they make training mats to protect the floor from sweat stains.

Here are some pics from my bike on the trainer:

Last Sunday

Last Sunday I went for a ride in the woods. The weather was great, the trail was slippery so it was a lot of fun. But the forest was very sad with almost all the leaves on the ground :(

I saw a lot of deers on the field (about 15) :D

More pics here.

This weekend

This weekend I was in Sighisoara where you can see the old and the new in one street :)

Here are a few pictures:

A good movie
