Taking the 100k Steps Fitbit Challenge and Raising Money for Charity
On Monday, Stephen and I have a crazy plan to set a new personal record for Fitbit steps. The goal? 100,000 steps in a single day, blowing away my previous personal best by more than 50 percent, and coming close to fifty miles walked - while also helping raise money for Camp Taylor, a free summer camp for children with heart disease, in memory of Riley Norton, the son of my friend and colleague Ken Norton. - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Who's this Stepeh guy? :) - Stephen Mack
No idea STEPHEN. NO IDEA. - Louis Gray
You go guys!! Maybe I'll try to join you for a lap - my next badge is at a measly 25K steps... - Ken Gidley
We'd love to have you for some or all, Ken! That's for everyone else here, too. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hey Bruce, I think @Fitbit should be promoting this on their channels. :) - Louis Gray
What about … sleep?! - Amit Patel
Sleep is a waste of time and unproductive Amit. - Louis Gray
What could be a bigger waste of time than walking? - Todd Hoff
Not walking? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Walking or running for charity is never a waste of time. As a fellow charity racer and Fitbit fanatic, I'm proud of Louis and Stephen for being so awesome! I did 65K during my marathon day (29 miles total including walking to/from the race), so I know y'all can rock this so easy! Kick butt, gentlemen! <3 - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Thanks Amanda! - Louis Gray
Thanks also from me. - Stephen Mack
@Fitbit did retweet. I hope you hit your fundraising goal! - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, this afternoon we're now $4,405 out of $4,500! - Stephen Mack

I do. 25k done! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Louis. Have a little mercy. Stephen, he is not the boss of you ... srsly, be careful guys. Have fun. - Laura Norvig
Thanks, Laura! 30k achieved. Louis is nearly 2k ahead of me because he doesn't stop moving when I tie my shoe or stop to pee. He. Is. A. Robot. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
He'll take you round the universe and all the other places too, Stephen! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I think you're right, Hig. He's taking me 36k so far -- we're past the one third milestone. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

52.5k now. Louis is 56k. Stride difference or device difference? Also he keeps walking when I stop to pee. Grr! The difference is a problem. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ken G. did 30k or more with us. Great job and thank you, Ken! Edit: 35k - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Don't take any ibuprofen! Rule of thumb when you're doing an endurance event (even walking or hiking). You don't take painkillers of any kind because they can cause kidney and/or liver damage (it screws with your hydration and sodium levels). You have to wait until you've had your first good pee after you've completed your endurance event before you should take a painkiller of any kind. - Hookuh Tinypants
Oops. Good advice. Too late. :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
26.9 miles walked, 58.4k steps. A marathon walked in 10 hours. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
63k but Louis is somehow at 69,800. I can understand him being 2k or 3k ahead but he picked up 1,000 steps on me in the last 20 min while walking the same trail. Something ain't right. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hmm. We did a test. He's currently getting 100 steps while I got 75 -- but we were walking side by side and matching strides. So I'm going to use his count. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
We're therefore nearing 75k. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Stephen, what did the fox say? - bentley
Way to go, Stephen! I walked 200 steps today on one leg, exhausted. :) - Stephan from iPhone

This thread is epic! 1) Yes, I am a robot. 2) Yes, I bossed Stephen. 3) Yes, I laughed at his joke. 4) Yes, there was a Fitbit count issue, but I made 100k! 5) I am way sore and not sleeping... BECAUSE you know why. - Louis Gray

Let us know how your feet feel when you wake up. ;) - April Russo
Stiff, sore, slow. I am old. - Louis Gray
April: I slept in to 11. I think the technical term for how they feel is "not good." - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's too late to advise you guys to ice your legs, but I recommend a hot bath with Epsom salts. Soak for at least 15 minutes. Make sure you get up and move frequently throughout the day. Doesn't need to be fast or long, just enough to keep your muscles from tightening back up. Do some stretches, both static and dynamic. And hydrate like your life depends on it. Also, pull up your Fitbit dashboard or app periodically and stare at your numbers for yesterday. Revel in that. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Excellent advice, Hookuh! I did ice a bit before bath last night, and am doing some more ice today. Epsom salt bath soon. Good idea on the stretches. - Stephen Mack
I've found some short walks to be helpful for me today, along with the stretching. Not so sore that I need ice or espom salt baths today. Definitely had reached my limit yesterday and happy to have stopped then. Don't envy Louis & you today. - Ken Gidley
If by "short walks" I can qualify with "hobbling to and from the kitchen" then I can say I took several short walks today. Fitbit tells me I've taken 270 steps so far today. That's a litttttle bit different from yesterday. (BTW, when I got home last night and realized I needed to take the trash bins down, I was so mad.) - Stephen Mack
That's how I would have felt after about 7K, and it would take me days to recover. I try to stay between 3K and 5K on most days. - April Russo
Just remember - it's not the day after that kills you. It gets worse on the second day after. *runs away* - Hookuh Tinypants
Tinypants!!! (Shakes fist) - Louis Gray
I did more than 9,000 steps today, because I had to do Christmas shopping still, and take kids places. But I've not been dramatically exerting. Over time, the stiffness will subside. - Louis Gray
Just consider it a reminder of your awesomeness. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Stephen Mack
100k! (Minus one.)

Hookuh: Ask me in about... Three months. Right now I never want to move ever again. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Female codebreakers reunited at Bletchley Park - Telegraph - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/history...
Female codebreakers reunited at Bletchley Park - Telegraph
"They may be fewer in number and older in years, but the pride in their expressions is undimmed by the passing years. Some of the last of the band of women who helped to crack Nazi codes as part of Britain’s war effort have been reunited for the first time in 70 years. The women, who were then only in their late teens, used Colossus, the world’s first electronic computer, to decipher messages exchanged by Hitler’s generals. Now, after a photograph of their team of codebreakers appeared in the Telegraph, they have been reunited at Bletchley Park for the first time since the end of the war. The photograph, which broke secrecy rules, was kept hidden in a desk draw for decades by Joanna Chorley. She discovered it shortly before the 70th anniversary of Colossus, in February." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Why the ‘Coffee’ Words Are Not Cognates - Languages Of The World | Languages Of The World
"A former student of mine drew my attention to a recent article in Slate written by Alyssa Pelish and titled “The Stimulating History of Coffee: Why You Hear This Word Around the World” (the image on the left is reproduced from the article). Pelish starts with a little thought-experiment about how one would order a coffee while travelling around the world: Kaffee in Berlin, caffè in Rome, kofi in Lagos, Nigeria, kŏfī in Delhi, India, and кофе (pronounced /’kofè/) in St. Petersburg, Russia. She correctly points out that these words sound alike in many languages, describing these words very poetically as “the two reliable syllables, the seesaw of vowel sounds punctuated by velar stops and fricatives”. I am not sure about the reliability of syllables or how one would go about measuring it, or whether the alternating consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel (CVCV) pattern can be called a “seesaw”. But the explanation Pelish provides for why these ‘coffee’ words are so similar the world over is entirely wrong and ignorant." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

America at the Trump hotel: The food is amazing – but you shouldn’t eat here, ever
"The female bar staff here wear the shortest uniforms I’ve ever seen in a restaurant, anywhere. (The male staff wear regular clothing.) One of them stops every few minutes to yank her skirt bottom down, so it more completely covers her. It’s not sexy. It’s degrading. Her face is blank and white. America’s management calls its bottle-service staff “our team of stunning ‘America girls.’” Young, leering men and old leering suits pour into America in the evenings. If you build it, creeps will come." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

One of the servers kept referring to the lobster as “Henry” – as in, “How is Henry?” and, “Are you finished working on Henry?” I... more... - Mark H

Downwind: Why didn't we think of that? Electricity stored as a temperature difference
"But according to Jonathan Howes, a British aeronautical engineer, there soon may be a viable alternative. Howes, with partners James Macnaghten and Mark Wagner, co-founded Isentropic, Ltd., a company that is currently developing a new storage technology called pumped-heat electricity storage (PHES), which stores electricity as heat and cold. PHES, Isentropic claims, is cheaper than pumped hydro, is deployable anywhere in the world, and is comparable—and in some cases superior—to pumped hydro with a round-trip storage efficiency of 72 to 80%." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Report: America could power itself 100 times over with solar energy - The Washington Post
"It is widely known that among all the sources of alternative energy, the one with the greatest potential is solar. How could it be otherwise? Staggering amounts of solar radiation strike the Earth each day; the only trick is capturing more of it. In a new report, the Environment America Research and Policy Center seeks to visualize and quantify this potential as it pertains to the United States. The report argues that the U.S. "has the potential to produce more than 100 times as much electricity from solar PV and concentrating solar power (CSP) installations as the nation consumes each year." It adds that every single state could generate more solar electricity than its residents currently consume." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

German town plays prank on neo-Nazis
"For decades, neo-Nazis have traveled to the southeastern German town of Wunsiedel, where Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy, was buried until 2011. The right-wing extremists march through the town in commemoration of Hess year after year, glorifying the horrors of the Third Reich. [...] Although Wunsiedel's inhabitants had observed the march from a distance over the past years, this Nov. 15, some of them welcomed the neo-Nazi protesters effusively with rainbow confetti and even cheered for them. [...] The group Rights versus Rights (Rechts gegen Rechts) had come up with a new way to protest the annual neo-Nazi march: For every meter the neo-Nazis walked, local businesses and residents would donate $12.50 to a nongovernmental organization devoted to making it easier for neo-Nazis to leave behind their hateful politics." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"The 200 neo-Nazis had only two choices when they got to know about the plan: Either they proceeded, indirectly donating money to the EXIT Germany initiative, or they acknowledged their defeat and suspended the march. The neo-Nazis decided to pursue their plans — and participated in raising funds for an organization committed to their downfall. According to a news release by the... more... - Mark H

Dropbox is insane. This policy is nuts: "Question: Will joining someone else's shared folder use my quota?" [Dropbox Help]
Answer: "The size of a shared folder will be counted against the quota of every member of that folder, unless everyone is a member of the same Dropbox for Business account. For Business accounts, the size of the shared folder will be counted against the team's shared quota only once. For all other users, your Dropbox storage quota is calculated by adding up the total amount of data in your Dropbox folder, including all shared folders. As a result, the owner of a Dropbox Basic 18 GB (2 GB + bonus storage earned through referrals) account will not be able to collaborate on a shared folder larger than 18 GB. One reason this policy exists is to prevent people from giving themselves unlimited space by stacking Basic accounts with shared folders." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
My camp is trying to share photos from Burning Man. We started out on Flickr, but Flickr requires everyone have a Yahoo e-mail, and some people resisted. So we gave Dropbox a try. Now everyone who joins the shared folder is out of quota. - Stephen Mack
I guess we'll try Google Drive or Shutterfly next. - Stephen Mack
If people don't want full rez, just upload to G+ and you'll get 2k resolution unlimited photos for free. - Steve and 4 other people
the dropbox thing is baffling. what a strange solution to "we don't want people to be cheap". - Jenica
Steve: G+ might work, although if people didn't want to create a Yahoo account, not sure how they'll feel about G+ accounts. - Stephen Mack
Jenica: I know! It seems completely nuts to me. - Stephen Mack
I think G+ has the same problem as Google Drive right? Do you have a non-google e-mail address I can try to share a GDrive folder with? - Steve and 4 other people

Got it! Thanks, Steve. (Curious: Why do those files have such bizarre filenames?) - Stephen Mack

Yup, I have this same problem with Dropbox. We have a license to a bunch of tutorial videos for WordPress, and the creator shares the new versions with us through Dropbox.

European Probe Survived Comet Landing with Luck and Great Design
"Europe's Rosetta mission pulled off the first-ever soft landing on a comet Wednesday thanks to a lot of great engineering and hard work — along with a healthy dose of luck, mission scientists say. Rosetta's Philae lander successfully touched down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko early Wednesday morning (Nov. 12), more than 300 million miles (483 million kilometers) from Earth. But Philae's anchoring harpoons didn't fire as planned, and the 220-lb. (100 kilograms) probe bounced off the comet twice before settling onto its icy surface for good." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"Philae's first bounce off 67P was a big one, sending the lander about 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) above the comet's surface, Ulamec said. Philae eventually came down again 1 hour and 50 minutes later, likely about 0.6 miles away from the original landing site. (The team still isn't sure exactly where the lander ended up.) But the probe was nearly lost to space. It rebounded off 67P's... more... - Mark H
