My mp3 player died, well the battery doesn't hold juice for too long after charging for hours so I fired up and old iPhone 4. It was a spare my Mum inherited from a grand niece sometime ago :smirk:

IOS is totally new for me as I have been in the Android world. Learning all the time :)

I guess it's the really little, little, almost insignificant things...

I'm about the same, want a challenge so we stay motivated? I've been trying on and off to lose weight now this year with mixed success. I need something to motivate me more.


You are on. I started on May 28th (that is when I weighed in at 101kg). I am weighing in every two weeks, so:
June 11th
June 25th
July 9th
July 23rd
August 6th
August 20th
September 3rd - this is goal day

Let's see what you got :ninja:[/quote]

Sounds good bro. :) I'm starting at 215lbs, I was 220 in January and dropped to 210 but I gained 5lbs since then it seems. Time to get back to the grind.

That link is on my read list now as I need to read.

TLDR, I too am on the weigh loss thing but not as before.

Short story is I was nudging 100kg and yes a while ago. I went to WW (Weight Watchers) as it worked for me in the past and well. I started at 97kg and got down to 83kg. Recently, probably because of the taste I have for the amber fluid over spirits :smirk: I have gained 5kg.

I know it is nothing like the loss you people in recent posts are looking at but I wanted to give you some encouragement. Just do it. You can if I did and can again. I find, once you stick and do it for a few days, these lead to weeks, then it become so much easier.

Example, this morning I had an omelette for breakfast and no toast (usually I'd add 2 slices and lots of butter). In WW land this equated to zero points providing a little leeway for later if needed.

Personally I love my carbs and I know I just need to account for what I eat.

Good luck :D

I spoke with Alex Ward of Burnout fame. I've always been a huge burnout revenge fan and loved burnout 3 too. He released a new game called Dangerous Driving which is the spiritual successor to burnout 3. It's a small dev team and isn't quite as good as the burnout series but the core burnout feel is there. Great little game, I highly recommend it if you've been a burnout fan in the past.

The Raspberry Pi 4

Now we are talking!
Quadcore, 4GB RAM, full 1000 ethernet, dual hdmi + old cinch, USB 3. Same GPIO-structure, WakeOnLAn and downwards compatible to model 3 scripts.

That is awesome. Whole new horizons to use this pocket-sized platform.

Show me what you got:
May 28th = 101kg (222lbs)
June 11th = 99.3kg (219lbs)
June 25th = 95.7kg (211lbs)

I don't expect the weight to keep coming off this quickly, but I do expect to make it below 90kg in another 4 weeks. After that, it'll be tougher.

New house keys on the 27th and two job interviews lined up, one of them for a huge company that would be a fucking dream come true.

Hey thanks Ferrao10 for the post :up:
I was never got into raspberry Pi but after a quick scan over the information in your link I think I'd better look again.

:arrow: Doombrain. Wow! Dreams do come true :) Believe it and you're nearly there.

PiPresents

That's what I/we use them for.
Media-presentation in whatever situation it fits in. And with the new hardware it fits into a lot more situations than the model 3, a lot more.
