RAAM ’09 Leaderboard


This marks RAAM #3 for me. I find it the most exciting bicycle race I’ve watched [although from home, with the Internet as my portal]. The Race Leaderboard [screen capture below], as they call it, is really a dynamic data rendering app, that easily facilitates race updates. It and the BROL Forums makes for an enjoyable experience—Bookmark the page!

iPhone OS 3.0 Software Update

When you get the new iPhone 3.0 Software Update for iPod touch, you get new features that make watching video, playing games, and listening to music even more fun.

Download the software update. Only $9.95.

Available June 17.

Apparently, not yet. My first anticipation was midnight local [EDT], then midnight PDT, now I wonder. My iTunes application says I have the latest version at 2.2.1 and the Apple Store only says the update is available on the 06/17. Stay tuned…

Mr. Giraldo arrives at Middlegate

A Middlegate to Xlthough there is no apparent structure where he stopped [from Google Earth & Google Maps], Mr. Giraldo’s eastward movement stopped at 8:52 p.m. PDT at Middlegate, Nevada.

The presumption now is that he well ride to Austin, Nevada today, likely using the new Hwy 50, the route [with less climbing] to the north. This is the route that passed through Cold Springs. His riding distance today is approximately 63.2 miles [or might he stay in Cold Springs—13.8 miles from Middlegate]. Given that, I expect an earlier start than his 12:24 p.m. PDT start yesterday.

Have a GREAT riding day Mr. Giraldo!
