I'm always fascinated by differences in thinking between transportation engineers and the illogical average human being. Over the years here in Austin TX they've added extra lanes in several places with no exit points that ultimately end and merge. Naturally during rush hour early-mergers cause the lane that doesn't end to move slower than if there was no extra lane at all. I've often considered this a failure of the transportation engineer for not realizing that people are stupid and don't drive like their logical computer models. Thus I find it refreshing to see that some states are at least trying to educate people on how to actually drive. Of course you only need to read some of the comments on the arstechnical article to realize that educating stupid people is no easy task.

Just got back from my trip to London and Paris. Here is the story Google put together from my photos.

I found the secret to winning your age group at XTERRA Bluebonnet today.  Pick a race with only four people in your age group, and then finish before they do.  In all seriousness It was good getting a win, but none of the guys who beat me at the last race showed up to this one.  We'll have to see how I do at the next few races.

The race today was a 800 meter swim (my GPS read 531m), 12 mile mountain bike, and 6K trail run.  I finished 1 out of 4 for 30-34, and 16 out 73 overall.

On Saturday I competed in my first real triathlon, XTERRA Camp Eagle. I started learning to swim about a year ago, and once I learned that there were off-road triathlons I set a goal to complete one this year.

My main goal was to finish the race which ended up being about a 1 mile open water swim, 11.5 mile mountain bike ride, and a 3.5 mile trail run. I ended up 21st out of 76 participants, and 9th out of 11 males age 30-34. My age group happened to be the fasted group which I guess means I need to train more for the next one.

Yep, just as I thought. Looks like I need a new bike.

I found this hillarious until I realized that this guy swam 100m much faster than I can.  In my defense I've only been swimming for about a month now, but it seems I have a new 100m goal.

On my way to the Linux Foundation's Enterprise End User Summit in NYC.

The band geek in me finds this quite entertaining.

Just sat down to eat at Davanti. Hopefully I'll be happy as well.
