AutoAwesome discovers my Android boot camp uploads, after I discovered that it could share generated images back to itself.

Home energy report: It's been one year since we turned on the photovoltaic system on the roof. It has generated 5512 kWh (about 2/3 of our total usage for the year), including four entirely net-negative months. The overall cost (net metering from the utility and a fixed monthly cost from SunRun) is down about $500 over the previous year (or what I calculate it would have been this year without the solar, which was pretty similar).

Someone should make a combination laptop sleeve/changing pad. It seems redundant to have both of them in my bag.

I'm posting a lot of photos on Flickr. 8-month photos of Arthur, in this case.

This afternoon I tried riding a Hubway bike home from the office, partly for fun, partly as practice for potential daycare pickup situations. 

 - The Hubway checkout was pretty straightforward... except for the part where they put up their legal agreement on the tiny little five-line screen and the page indicator read "1/130". I hope it remembers my credit card number or something and doesn't do that again. 
 - It's been a long, long time since I rode a bike, but you know what they say about never forgetting. I am now moderately sore after a measly 3 mile/25 minute ride (Yesterday was the cardio kickboxing workout I do, but if that was going to make me sore, I think it would have started before 7pm)
 - It's been even longer since I rode with any amount of traffic around (and did I ever ride on Mass Ave before? Possibly not). That said, I think I was more bothered by all of the other bikes passing me. I vaguely wonder how much scorn was being aimed in the direction of someone who takes a Hubway bike relatively slowly down a major bike-commuting corridor at rush hour.
- The bike felt... heavy and stiff. I don't know how much of that is me being out of practice, and how much is the bike being heavy and stiff. 
 - Going past a bike accident on Beacon St. (with EMS on scene and looking like the cyclist was about to be loaded onto a back board) was not an auspicious start.

I have to think about the social dynamics of passing a cyclist who's fast enough to speed up and leapfrog me.  If they're resoundingly slower than me, they don't get a second thought.
I do have an emotional reaction when someone with two soft tires and a rusty chain powers past me, but it's not scorn.

The number of Humble Bundles for Android has now exceeded the number of games from the previous HBfA that I have played. I think it may be time for me to take a break from throwing money at things that, while I might like, I am not actually going to use.
