Getting My Next Mobile Platform

Ever since I have quit my job in late 2017, I don't have any notebook computer with me. This sounds a little bit inconvenient and I have been thinking of getting my next mobile platform for quite a while.

羅大佑與音樂瘋子的傳奇派對

週3聚樂部─羅大佑與音樂瘋子的傳奇派對

住在台北的老同學早前在面書上分享了羅大佑與音樂瘋子的傳奇派對音樂會。這個由羅大佑和王治平携手合作的Live Show,除了讓大家回味他過往的作品外,也提供一個平台給年輕樂團和樂手作表演。音樂會安排在每月最後的一個星期三晚上。 碰巧十二月份的表演日子,我和其他舊同學一行三人仍在台北,當然不想錯過這難得的機會。

Running Wahoo ELEMNT in Route / Sim Mode

Fixing the Wahoo ELEMNT Route Mode Support?

Early this year, I have kick-started cycle training with my newly installed CycleOps Magnus smart trainer. One of the simplest and cost-effective setups that I had discussed was using the built-in Planned Workout feature of my Wahoo ELEMNT bike computer. At that time, I had observed that the "Route" mode of trainer control provided by the Wahoo ELEMNT was not functioning. The trainer resistance did not reflect the actual elevation profile of the loaded route. The case was reported to Wahoo and I finally received their reply in mid-July on fixing the error. Sounded great !
