Fitness Progress - January 2016

I’ve decided this year that I really want to rid myself of my gut. I think it’s shrunk over the last year or two and I have gone down in pants size, but I’ve always wanted to get rid of it in its entirety. I don’t know if that will happen this year, but I definitely want to see the majority of it go away. To that end, I’ve been making a concerted effort to go to the gym more with what I feel is a good lifting plan, and to generally just stay active.

Podcasts Galore, Part II

If you’ve read my blog at all, you know that I’m a big fan of podcasts. They’re a great way to learn about a whole variety of subjects to fit your tastes. I listen to so many podcasts I unfortunately have to pick and choose which episodes I listen to based on interest levels, which for me is fine. It’d be nice to be able to listen to everything, but there just isn’t enough time in the day.

I Finally Ran a Marathon

I did it. I actually did it. Even almost a month later it sometimes dawns on me how amazing it is that I was able to run a full marathon (26.2 miles).

Redesigned Again

Over the course of the last several months, I’ve been busy building out my website utilizing Jekyll instead of Wordpress. It’s not my first time moving away from Wordpress, but I think it will end up being permanent.

The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act

I was listening to the Reply All podcast today and they had an interesting episode regarding the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. I knew some basics about it, but never knew how general and open-ended it really was. It really is disturbing to me that people could be charged for simply violating the terms of service on a site like Facebook. It’s highly unlikely that the government will go after you for it, but it’s still scary to know that the potential is there.
