I'm a 70's baby. I'm a geek, in the best sense of the word.

I've progressed "up the communications stack" (think the TCP/IP stack) over the past 14 years:

  • I studied electronic engineering
  • I spent years wrestling with search engine spiders analysing web traffic before it was called Web Analytics
  • I built and tested opto-electronic circuitry in chemistry research, then integrated those circuitry with Lego Mindstorms on MIT Media Lab projects
  • I spent 5 years working in systems, network and infrastructure administration for various IT and Internet companies
  • I spent 7 years working in mobile telecommunications services building mobile Internet networks.
  • I am now working in information architecture, interaction design and human computer systems (HCI).

My favourite word is why. I'm skeptical. I like the outdoors, but live in cities.

I ride my bike, take photographs, travel as much as possible, drink good wine and eat good food, and talk too much.

comment Bicycling apps for Android
I'd also add a vote for Sports Tracker. I use it for running, and cycling. Great application and gives you good statistics on times, overall distances, lap times.

comment Stopping interference between LED lights and wireless Cycling Computer
It'd also be intertesting to see if the OP tried using the suggested ferrite choke. If you can't find/don't want to spend the couple of bucks to buy one, they can normally be found on some electronics equipment (like your broadband router, or a house telephone) as they are sometimes susceptible to RF interference.

comment Stopping interference between LED lights and wireless Cycling Computer
What cycling comp was it? What kind of LED lights were these? Also what colour lights were they? I have 2 white LED lights normally in "flashing" mode and haven't seen any interference. That's not to say they don't interfere but I'd appreciate if you had some more information. You can see my lights and where they are placed in relation to the comp here: flickr.com/photos/runningwithbulls/6978622804

comment How do I correctly set the angle of my drop bars
I didn't know what a brifter was (of course I knew it to see but wasn't aware of the terminology)so in case anyone else was confused check here. Brifter = gear shifter + break lever.
