Hundred Pushups

After 6 weeks, I finally managed to do one hundred pushups in a row. Not that easy, I hear you say? So go ahead, try it yourself. And then you may wish to take a look into this great program by Steve Speirs.

One Hundred Pushups is a set of guidelines to make you able to do that, without much effort, and in your own time. The only rule you have to keep in mind is to keep from cheating to yourself. Trust me. If not for anything else, it'll blow some steam away from you, make you sleep better with your body as tired as your mind!

iPod Touch and WPS behind routers

I've recently bought a 2nd generation iPod Touch, and I'm getting used to the location finder (without GPS).

However, my home router's seem to enjoy hiding the location... I've googled the issue, and I've come up with the WPS notion, and a link for a form where we can tag a given MAC address (your router's) to a easily findable (via a Google Map widget) geo location. They say I have to wait a while before that starts to work. We'll see... :)

From the Skyhook's website:

The WPS is an essential part of any complete Location System. Without this capability, the location of a mobile device cannot be accurately or reliably determined, especially in indoor or dense urban environments. As a key component of XPS, the Wi-Fi Positioning System (WPS) has been closely integrated with GPS and cellular positioning.

More info and the aforementioned form can be found here.
