Usually Mister Buddy sleeps until 7:40 or later, so I thought I was safe squeezing this in after shoveling, but I was not, and he was a half hour earlier than expected which ends up with everything taking a bit longer at each step from there on out, thus a quality late arrival at work today. But he is a very sweet man and it's all good either way.

Still no HR pairing, not sure of next steps. Battery was recently refreshed, but maybe replacement was a dud or too old. I found the pack of those 2032s in the bottom of a desk drawer.

119 w, 66 rpm

I think I finished the first month, unceremoniously, so just a "free ride" today, will have to pick some things to do as I think even the little program was helping a bit.

tl;dr beloved laptop semi operational after scare

My kitchen piping leaked into the basement, not a big deal except I had three computers below, with my beloved laptop bearing the brunt of hopefully just splashing. It seemed fine, but then Sunday half of the apps weren't working, and then it got stuck in boot when I hoped a restart would fix up the apps (safari, chrome). So I don't know if these items are related or happy coincidence.

After much head banging, I have the laptop working off an old hard drive, for which I had to enlist the 2012 MBP to format (since the 2018 MBP is only USB-C and dongles were not handy) and my 2015 MBP can't set up a partition table in the recovery start up mode.

My hope is I can unencrypt the SSD (required for OS install), then reinstall OS X on the SSD, and that all will then be well. The decryption rate is approximately 10% per two hours, so it's another half day before I know for certain. At least it looks like worst case, I could recovery most stuff and then try a new SSD at some point (1 TB upgrade???), best case maybe I'm operational in another day.

Erg rowing 48:02 [1] 3.0 mi (16:01 / mi)

Forgot to wash any bike / tri shorts, so erg rowing = order of the day.

Another request in the old FB inbox for help with the first-class rank requirements. I think we all enjoy measuring the heights and widths of things as we motor around our courses.

4a. Using a map and compass, complete an orienteering course that covers at least one mile and requires measuring the height and/or width of designated items (tree, tower, canyon, ditch, etc.).
4b. Demonstrate how to use a handheld GPS unit, GPS app on a smartphone, or other electronic navigation system. Use GPS to find your current location, a destination of your choice, and the route you will take to get there. Follow that route to arrive at your destination.

The rest of 4a at least fits with a normal event or permanent course. And at least I finally know where it comes from, having somehow missed the discussion about First Class vs. Merit Badge when it was on AP in 2016

Slow shuffle around the icy trails of the Tree Farm. FROZE for 15 minutes, then warmed up nicely at 20 minutes. Terrible attire - full on bike shorts, then windproof tights, then rain pants, then wicking shirt, crude jacket, less crude jacket, plus headband and mechanic type gloves. ~14 F or so.
