Hooray for LogJam  
I finally got around to downloading a LJ client. This one's packaged for Debian, so other than racking my brain for a minute or two to remember my password, I didn't have to put forth any effort to get it up and running. I haven't played much with LogJam yet, but from what I know of its features so far, I think it's w00t. So is the perty Aqua Light Blue theme I found for GTK2. Now all my GTK-based stuff matches, and I even have a Mac theme for Enlightenment, so everything coordinates weeeeeeeee! (Yeah, the real thing would be nice, but I'm not giving up my dualie Athlon box, damn it...and unlike Linux, Mac OS X isn't free. Bleh.)

I've been thinking of getting up early for morning cardio. If I did that, I could get in more sessions each week because I'd be able to do cardio and lift on the same day. (Who wants to go for a nice elliptical trainer jog when they're zonked from the weight room...or vice versa?) I am a night owl, but this would be doable for me, believe it or not. Way back at the end of June, I had to work some 10-hour days to make up for a few hours that I took off work that week. I got up an hour early so I wouldn't have to stay too late at night, and I actually adjusted to it pretty well. This is about the same time I'd have to get up for a morning workout. I'd be able to eat something small and easily digested and pack my lunch while I waited for it to settle, and then I could go bust some ass and take my shower and leave for work. I don't know how well I'd be able to get ready after something like the evil sprint session I did tonight, though. o_O Well, let's give it a shot anyway...

Cardio - Elliptical trainer HIIT (3-minute warmup + 10 intervals). I left the incline at its default and bumped the resistance up to 8, and away I went. It's amazing how you can kick your own ass in less than 13 minutes of cardio. According to the machine, I went 1.35 miles in 12:15. I also got the intensity above 300 watts during the sprints. (Medium intensity is about 150-160, and a tough jog is 200 or so.) After I was done, I had to go sit down in the locker room for a few minutes.

Damn woman. Your workout makes me feel like a wimp. Whenever I go work out, I try to use as many machines as possible.

Just wanted to drop you a note of congradulation on your invite, it's very badass. *thumbs up*

Mac OSuX?
The department bought us some shiny G4's for office computers, and so far I've been less than thrilled. Someone in the department who was gung ho about getting Macs made the case that OSX was Unix-based and therefore stable. But somehow, my G4 crashes on a daily basis when I do something simple like open MS Word. It tends to freeze up during shutdown as well. I wonder how much the university is paying for this?
