That's very likely the reason.

Not much motivation to enhance sat imagery in a lot of the places I
ride either :lol

yep, still using them.

everybody else has looks, schimano spd and so on...

but its more or less an accident that they show their quick lock stuff with eggbeaters...

Gee, I live a half-days drive from Yellowstone and I've never
been. Been to the Wind River mountains which aren't far from there,

And which of the above foods is solving my problem?

The banana. Lots of potassium there.

We use Nuun and sometimes Cytomax. Hate-o-rade[1] is too sugary, makes things worse.

Kumaritashvili was doing traditional feet-first luge, but yeah, that was an unfortunate way to get the Olympics started.

When it comes to jokes, though, I prefer the "nothing is sacred" policy, so go ahead.

My 60CSx is frighteningly accurate (Same GPS receiver as the 530HCx,
just without the radios (I have a big radio that kicks the shit out of
the Rinos)). Resolution of about two feet, accuracy to about 10.
What surprises me the most is the map sets. CityNav has a bunch of
dirt roads, i'll find myself way out in the mountains and the little
jeep trail I'm on is mapped and routable on the receiver.

I power my GPS from the {bike|sled|truck}, so a pair of AA's lasts me a
few weeks of daily use :)

Snow's in the mountains. Front range is dry and comfortable. High was
in the mid 40's this afternoon.

Heh.  That's about the sum of it.  :)

Oddly enough, I was thinking about something like that a few days ago.  A real breakthrough would be to develop a way to directly convert the energy stored in one's body to electricity, for powering cell phones and computers and such.  Most of us are carrying around a bunch of extra stored energy that we don't really want.

(Yeah I know, hand cranked generators etc. etc.  I'm talking about a way to do it at the molecular level without all that.)

btw, from the Steven Chu article in politics & propaganda:

Chu's talk spans environmental history, deep-water drilling and energy efficiency. Explaining why electric car batteries are large and heavy, he uses a common measurement of energy and notes that a lithium ion battery stores 0.54 megajoules per kilogram. Body fat has 38 megajoules per kilogram, and kerosene has 43.


quiet a number, right?

Selective Availability (SA) throws the accuracy off (Lat-long may be
50m off in one direction in a large-ish region). Resolution (Minimum
distance the receiver can detect motion) is unchanged.

SA is currently set to zero and has been since clinton was in office,
and will likely stay that way for a long time given that commercial
aviation and marine navigation is dependent on a reasonably accurate
signal. LORAN ceased operation earlier this year, and as VORs quit
working they're generally just shut down rather than repaired and put
back in service.

Most of the error I see is in maps... when I go lay down tracks, I can
zoom into the 20ft range and still be dead on, even weeks/months later
(satellites in a different constellation, different HDOP). Yet when I
pull the tracks into Google Earth, the tracks are 20-30ft off of where
they are in the aerial photo. This happens mostly
out in the mountains
and remote locations where I ride... In town, I can see what side of the
lane of the highway i'm in. Stupid accurate.

FWIW, I have WAAS/EGNOS disabled. I see no performance increase with
that enabled, and it does drain batteries quicker when I run without
external power.

hehe, its that simply stupid,.. its gotta be something like that... ;-)

weren't there similar looking military people carriers arround in the 70'ies which weren't convertibles?

or was that some sort of war toy?

The best resolution I get is about 6-7 feet with my Garmin Etrex.  That's assuming the military is not degrading the GPS signal.  Does any know if they are still doing that?  It's been quite awhile since I checked or cared realy.  12-15 feet is more than enough resolution for me.
