"The clamp is about $50 cheaper than a stand, but I mostly liked the idea of using the existing bench and C clamp, and of building the rest of the jig myself." - Bryan O'Sullivan

bos on Does Haskell have a company with a large brand, like OCaml has Jane Street Capital? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Our Haskell and OCaml code bases at Facebook are of roughly comparable sizes: each language has a fairly small but very active and capable team using it. That said, I am fairly sure we have fewer people and less code in FP languages than StanChar." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Does anyone know of a good site where I can buy new heel and toe plates for my boots? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"For small components like these, you usually need to buy from the vendor's web site." - Bryan O'Sullivan

"As light as possible. Carrying the weight of heavy crap on the ends of your legs is way more effort than it would be in a backpack. Here's a good table of [lightweight backcountry skis](https://www.wildsnow.com/9657...) so you can fire up your imagination. Should you spend all that money to lose the weight before you even know if you like slogging up a hill? Nope. And especially not before taking an avy 1 class, and then finding a group of sane companions who have good judgment and who won't some day make you all the subjects of some tut-tutting concern piece about yet another multiple-burial tragedy." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Curse of the Black Toe - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"You got completely screwed on the boot sizing. To put this in perspective, I'm maybe half to a full shoe size bigger than you, ski pretty well, and use 28.5 boots. Never once had even a hint of either discomfort or sloppiness. My 13 year old is skiing 25.5 boots this season and I guarantee his feet (size 7.5) are a lot smaller than yours." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Rossignol s7 for backcountry - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Your point about taking an avy class is spot on, but your arithmetic could do with some serious help. There is no way one ski or any kind will weigh 13 pounds, unless you've been given a custom ski moulded in lead as a joke and didn't notice." - Bryan O'Sullivan

"The Dynastar Cham 97 HM is a (much) lighter version of the stock Cham (which is an excellent ski). I've toured a bit on the regular Cham and had no trouble, but losing a few pounds on the feet would have been sweet." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Solo ski buming? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I think a decent fraction of us would welcome the opportunity to turn back time to our early 20s and spend a season doing the solo ski bum thing. Were it not for, you know, the pre-existing commitments, connections, nameless fears, and so on (the list of excuses is long and ever-changing). You know what would be cool? If you kept up a semi-regular blog of your experiences (the ups and the downs and the photos) and posted it here. I guarantee that if you put a little effort into making it a good read you'd pick up a following. There's not nearly enough semi-decent writing about ski bumming." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on What were your goals this past season, and how have you done? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"100m vertical? That's ... very small. My local training hill has a 200m climb at a sustained 17% right after a 300m climb of 6%, and that's the small climb I do to prepare for the 1000m climbs in the mountains a few hours away :-) (Don't get the misinformed idea that I know what I'm doing, because I'm very new and way underskilled, but that's a small dang hill.)" - Bryan O'Sullivan

bos on Force Criterion to benchmark sequentially for benchmarking parallel code - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Criterion does nothing about/with threads when running the code you want to benchmark. Whatever RTS settings you set, they're what gets used. The likely reason you're seeing multiple cores in use for a single-threaded benchmark, when you tell the RTS to use more than one core, is the parallel GC, which is enabled by default." - Bryan O'Sullivan

bos on Question regarding "edits" and their popularity - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Edits are very popular among skiers, dirt bikers, snowboarders, parkour afficionados, and skateboarders, too. They're all very photogenic, viscerally rewarding, kinetic activities where there's a strong connection between seeing someone do something and being able to imagine yourself doing and enjoying it. It's that simple. Rock climbing and road biking, in contrast, are more thoughtful games, and don't translate so well to getting the viewer stoked." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Ski Binding Sizing - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"The bindings remain the same, and you have to use brakes specific to that model of binding." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Thoughts after a life changing crash. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I've had a variety of serious sports injuries: broken bones, torn ligaments, surgeries. If you take the long view this early in your healing, it is definitely going to weigh on you, as you're seeing. So looking ahead a day or a week at a time is useful. (It's also okay to feel crushed by the enormity of it and wonder if you'll ever be better, so don't beat yourself up when you feel that way.) Equally important, don't look backwards on too short a timescale: you'll have some runs of days where each one is a little worse than the one before, and if you're in the middle of that it can feel like you're backsliding when really it's just normal variation in the healing process. Also: try meditation. It's a good way to ride the ups and downs." - Bryan O'Sullivan

"Not sure I'd advise a visitor who'd never skied gnarly terrain before to hit Kill the Banker. That run is pretty committing." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on So I've settled on revelstoke - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"The "most vertical" thing isn't the big deal you might think. What it means in practice is that the lower mountain has crappy snow much of the time, so you'll be mostly skiing the upper mountain (especially in March when it gets warmer). You should expect 90% or more of your skiing to be off piste, mostly through well gladed trees. So forget racing and hardpack-oriented skis entirely, there's almost no terrain where they'd make sense. Even when things get moguled, the bumps are not the icy death cliffs you'll be used to from the east. (Moguls are great prep for tree skiing, btw.) Also, expect to bankrupt yourself at the base area cafe in the morning. Its prices are very good, but the food is so excellent you'll be wishing you had extra pockets to stow pastries in :-)" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Ski Related Question for a Euro tripping to NA West/Central - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"There are specific IATA regulations governing how airlines that fly internationally may charge for ski equipment, golf gear, and a few other classes of goods. (Can you tell that these regulations were negotiated by rich people?) The combination of skis, boots, and poles (or snowboard and boots) is treated as one piece of checked luggage, and an airline can charge you extra – but *only* if you exceed other guidelines around weight or number of checked items." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Ski Related Question for a Euro tripping to NA West/Central - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Mantras are great skis for most Western conditions. Only if it's really deep would a wider ski be better, but if you encounter good powder, just demo a pair for a day (usually $60). Airlines are not allowed to charge you to transport skis or boots internationally, but you have to use a hardshell ski case and a ski-specific boot bag. To save money, book early and look for good deals. If you don't mind dirtbag living, there's a hostel in Jackson Hole. You can also try renting a room in someone's home on airbnb, or a cheapish chain motel." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Mountainbiking Tahoe! A must ride on the Armstrong Trail in South Lake Tahoe, Calif. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"All of the trails in the Tahoe area are 90+% likely to be buried under many feet of snow until some time between April and June. If you rent a fat bike, you can still have plenty of fun, but otherwise you'll have to travel pretty far to lower elevation to find dry trails (Reno, maybe)." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Are Salomon X-Max 120's okay for me? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
