today’s training

Today was an official pyramid training day. These are the exercises I’ve used :

  • lunges
  • push-ups
  • squats

I did a 1-4-1 in 4:05. There’s definitely room for improvement.

I think we can agree this is focused on the legs, and if you haven’t done this type of training before, your legs will be pretty sore. Try it!

python goes turbo


I read a very interesting article here. Can you imagine what big of a boost this will be ? As I understand, Unladen Swallow is two times faster than CPython , at this time. There’s a 5x speed increase planned for the project. w00t !.

having no internet connection = productivity

For the past couple of days I had no internet access. It’s been strange, I haven’t experienced this in a long time.

I was very productive these days, I was able to work on my “advanced” ruby text-editor, and I made a pretty good progress. Let me tell you why I think people should try to limit the internet “connectivity”:

  • at the beginning of a new project, you know what documentation you need to get the job done. You could download that, and access the internet ONLY when/if you get stuck. After solving the problem, disconnect 🙂 , and carry on with other tasks.
  • you’re wasting WAY to much time with twitter/facebook/myspace/insert social network name here. You could be working in this time, and you could get the job done. After you’ve done this, you can login again.

The internet is too big a distraction, and I think you’ve noticed. Do something about it.

django book

Great progress has been made at django book. I think I last visited their site a month ago, and back then, chapters 1-5 were posted. I was surprised to see covered everything up to chapter 20.

Nice job guys!
