A couple weeks ago I tested out Canon’s new XA25 High Definition Camcorder in low light, check to see how it handled different situations. I also turned on gain boost, which normally introducing noticeable grain or noise in the picture. I was impressed with the XA25 low light performance. I was also excited to see that gain could be adjusted in 1db increments, so the operator can add just what they need and limit the negative effects, which are minimal with this camera.
“Motivated” sums up how I feel about my running progress over the past several weeks. I have high hopes for 2014, thanks to my motivating friends on RunKeeeper.com.
My kee has been causing some pain throughout January. I also bruised a rib during a New Years ski trip. Both seem to be getting better, but some pain still persist. The knee pain has been the big struggle. I think it’s mostly the result of ramping up milage in January, after low milage in November/December.
That said, I’m on track to break a new personal record for “miles in a month”, should end up near 70.
My hope at this point is to continue the milage in February, pace myself to reduce knee pain, build up my base, and hopefully strenghen my core.
I do hope to run a half marathon in 2014, we’ll see.
Just after a bog snow storm, trying to find a good, safe place to run outdoors can be dificult. My go-to place in this area is Lincoln Woods, the state plows the road around Olney Pond and for the most park is closed to traffic. The hills are a bit of a challenge, but I guess that’s a good thing right.
This photo was taken on January 5th, Google+ automaticly added the snow…kinda neat.
For the past few weeks I’ve been troubleshooting a problem with my internet connection. I finally found the solution and want to share the solution, just in case others are having the same issue.
My WAN or internet connection was dropping at least once a day, sometimes 3-4 times per day. Power cycling (unplug/plug back in) the cable modem OR the router would temporarily restore the connection, but this never resolved the problem.
Firmware version 18.104.22.168 for the Netgear WNDR4500 was the source of my problem. I rolled back to the previous version V22.214.171.124_1.0.40 and BINGO, my internet connection was stable once again!
You can download V126.96.36.199_1.0.40 from the Netgear Support Website for the WNDR4500, click on “Get More Downloads” for the list of previous firmware.
Once you download the firmware, access the router’s admin panel through a web browser. By default the address is: http://192.168.1.1/. Once logged in, go to the advanced tab and select “Router Update” under the administration section.
Here is a screenshot of the router update:
From here it’s straight forward, click browse, find your V188.8.131.52_1.0.40 file and upload to the router. After rebooting the system, you should be FIXED!
Hopefully Netgear is able to fix whatever issue they are having with V184.108.40.206, which was released in May 2013. Running the latest firmware is normally a good idea, USUALLY fixes bugs and strengthens security of the hardware.
Hope this helps, what frustration! My broadband provider offered to come out and check the lines, with the usual warning…if it’s determined the problem is with your equipment, we will need to charge for the service call. Love that… I’m glad I said “no thanks”.
Trying out WordPress 3.6 “Oscar”, this post is formatted as a STATUS post. Check, Check…is this thing on?
