Endurance

My last report is here. In the last 3 months I have done
  • June = 33.92k
  • July = 20.93k
  • August = 34.14k
I have great improvement on my ability to run longer best record so far is 45 minutes with one stop for water. My only concern now is that what MHR is good for me. I'm not sure if I'm considered well enough for a higher MHR in the range of 160-170 or should I be keeping it at a lower range of 150-160.

I'll surely attempt to run faster when the weather is cooler.

Guitar

I was actually searching by 'cello chat' the other day in youtube. All by chance I found this video of Bohemian Rhapsody in classical guitar.







This is unbelievable as I like Queen very much and never thought such rock classic can be played in classical guitar style. Image how difficult it was to teach yourself to play an instrument with very little money to buy books, sheet music or to hire a good teacher when I was young. Now you could get everything you want easily from internet.

I also dug below out. The year was 1980 at $49. It was a lot of money at that time.

History

I don't read Chinese books. It must be something from childhood and I can't explain why. I read mostly books on astrology and geometry in school library, I didn't like going to public library at all after school.

I studied Chinese and History, which were made extremely boring by teachers, in school to get a pass. I find reading anything Chinese longer than a page difficult. This one changed me, it makes history reading interesting and there are a lot more than history in this series.

Weather was really bad

It isn't effect of time on obsolete photo printing technology, weather was really bad.

Call forwarding

iPhone doesn't come with very basic phone feature such as conditional forwarding, e.g. when you are busy/unreachable/not answered etc. These features may be considered by Apple as too basic and your carrier should tell you how to do it by keying in codes at the dial pad.

Found this very good reference. I have just tested this OK with my carrier and I just use the dumb way of simultaneously perform ALL conditional forwards such that when my phone rings I can decide to take it or forward it.

I think someone should design an app to do this smartly.
