Same. Finally. Though I've got another week until my third microchip is mature. I'm finding myself able to pick up small steel screws, washers and nuts without actually touching them.

That's weird. I mean, I've done hour-long races where we all stay together and stay within a fairly narrow power band. I've noticed sometimes I have a significantly lower W/kg than the person I'm drafting - like they're doing over 2 W/kg while I'm cruising at 1.7 or 1.8.

Might it have to do with the terrain? And are all your parameters in your profile correct? One thing I noticed when I accidentally reset my height to 3 feet was that I had no problem at 2 W/kg keeping up with other riders putting out more like 4 W/kg, so the aero effect of height should not be overlooked.

Not to get into a big brouhaha, but is there really much difference?

Philly just implemented the NYC rule on Tuesday. If you want to dine inside you have to show proof of full vaccination.

There's a big difference when you look at hospitalization rate and death rate - TN's death rate/100,000 is nearly 3X CA's.

NVD!

There's less serious disease where more people are vaccinated. But I think the idea that masks are going to keep COVID--especially this variant--away indefinitely is just wrong.

Worst spots in US right now:

Do you understand the concept of layered defense?

If masking decreases the probability of infection by 50% and social distancing reduces the probability of infection by 50%, how much does the combination of the two reduce the probability of infection?

MoAlpha 01-05-22 01:31 PM

Of course the header over one set of windows is actually a beam tying into the support for the adjacent 2-story elevation and is almost completely rotten. So, we get to meet a brand new subcontractor tomorrow morning and pony up a few more boat units.

There's theoretical world calculations, and then there's the real world reality. I'm not saying that on an individual level they don't help. But sooner or later an outbreak will hit all areas, even the most regulated.

I dropped myself this morning, so donít feel bad.

What's the boat unit/bike unit exchange rate?

I wonít argue- itís horrible up here right now. Iím not worried itís going to kill me. I am, however, worried that itís going to cause my kids to miss school for 5+ days.

I do generally feel that masking causes minimal discomfort and donít see what the big deal is with wearing them.

Blame your wheel-on trainer. I do.

Just finished my Zwift group ride. It was advertised as “sub2” pace 1.7-2.0, which for me would be fine but a bit easy. Of course, even with the “red gate of death” the pace was a bit faster, more like 2-2.3, which was ok for me but if I wonder if some riders were not happy. I had signal drop only twice, and the second one was nearly at the end.

It’s not as good as real miles but better than nothing.

B.O.A.T. - break out another thousand

Usually multiples of that.

It's way to frustrating. I ve complained to the leader before but I'm told, I'm doing it wrong. But no one can tell me what I'm doing wrong so I dunno..:deadhorse: .



What hardware is this on? Have you tried installing the latest Zwift client? I occasionally got a situation where I pressed for a different camera view and then got limited in speed no matter the power applied. But I think a later game update fixed that.

Do you have a choice? If there's an update, it updates on my rig. And of course because it's a cheap and old laptop, it takes FOREVER.

I don't know how old is old, but if you don't already know, Zwift will require Windows 10 by the end of the month. If you have W7, you can still upgrade for free, but if you have XP you are SOL.

Yes it updates, but sometimes a fresh installation of the software from their website seems to be better than the update.

A geezer invited me to do a structured workout with him tomorrow. I'm not sure I see the point, but what the hell.
