In dealing with those who are undergoing great suffering, if you feel burnout setting in, if you feel demoralized and exhausted, it is best, for the sake of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself. The point is to have a long-term perspective. ~ Dalai Lama

This afternoon, I went for my first ride since getting back from my cycling trip almost 3 weeks ago.

Initially I just wanted to make a short ride, but I ended doing 67 km (42 mi). Lots of hills!!! 🚴‍♂️

I started with one of my usual routes, along bike trails. But on the way back, I decided to make a detour through Ste-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier and took a country road. There was a very steep descent on the way back, I clocked at 56 kph (35 mph).

hmm... so 355/113 is not only the best rational estimate for pi for 16 bit Forth systems (hello */ ) - when converted to 32-bit IEEE754, it's only a single bit away from M_PI itself (0x40490FDB vs 0x40490FDC).

it's even usable on 8 bit systems - 113 is a 7 bit unsigned number! If you can divide a long int by 10 to print it, you can divide it by 113 to scale by pi. Multiplying up by 355 is also quite easy - x<<8 + (x+x+x)<<5 + x+x+x.

Today almost broke me because I didn't have the allen key size to take apart a desk that I needed to move. I guess I just need more tools.

I am now a senecacollege.ca extended learning student! The admin interfaces are pretty weird though. Can't figure out how to change my address.

Invaluable information about troubleshooting systemd services superuser.com/questions/997938 - after years of using systemd I still don't remember the different ways to get status/troubleshooting info and logs out of systemd
