Went to see Oliver Kuttner present The Very Light Car at "Spaceport Colorado" (aka Frontrange Airport).  This is the car (or a sibling of the car) that won the Automotive X Prize in 2010.  It looks like a drag racer made out of a Piper Cub, which I gather, not far off the mark.

This is an electric version which takes about 1hr to charge (off a 120V outlet) for a range of around 80mi.  However, there's space underneath the truck in back for a small gasoline generator which in effect, turns it into a hybrid for longer trips.  Being electric, it can accelerate from 0 to 120mph in something like 12-18 seconds.  Kuttner estimated it's top speed should be around 180mph, but they haven't pushed it that far yet.  With the EPA's definition of MPGe, this car get's well over 200MPGe combined.

Apparently the key to all this efficiency is reduced weight.  With reduced weight comes reduced power requirements, reduced engine size, reduced structural requirements, which creates more weight reduction.  It seems cars are not that much different from rockets in this respect.  The genius of the Very Light Car is that this decreased weight apparently comes at a net savings rather than a premium.  So the Edison2 should be in the mid to low $20k's.

James draged me up Green Mountain on Saturday.  My fatigue was put in it's place when we met a guy coming down the mountain who lamented that, having already run up Greys & Torries (14ers),  Flagstaff and Green Mountain (foothills) he was walking back down cause his legs were a little unsteady.

I felt very small and very large at the same time.

Oy. Google checkout doesnt let you change your credit card info (for android marketplace) from your phone. You have to find a "computer".

The down side to Test Driven Development, at least for me, is that once you include the unit tests, you wind up writing 2 or 3 (or more) times as much code.

On the up side, you get to write 2 or 3 times as much code!

Finally got a chance to try this most infamous fruit yesterday.  I feel stronger from the experience, but I can now definitively say it is the most vile thing I've ever tasted.  My sense of smell is still having nightmares.

Definitely a dream.  I would have remembered Liz Hurley.

Google's Location History has some really amusing noise.   The most interesting incidents always seem to happen on the Diagonal Hwy.  For example, a couple weeks ago, the bus to Longmont appears to have taken a discontinuous detour through Laredo TX.

I've filed bugs about that. I think it's connected with collisions/bad data in the wifi and cell tower mapping, with the obvious help from software that doesn't check whether sudden accelerations of that level are physically survivable, or whether your previous location was near one of the relatively few launching sites for the rockets necessary to achieve them.

This place has changed owners many times over the past several years. Most were incarnations were unmemorable, but Emperor Palace is quite good. On par or better than the venerable Empress Seafood on S. Federal.
