These are my friends at HRM USA — the place at which I have been buying ALL my many activity trackers for the last year. Given that they discovered that I blog they had asked whether I would do some reviews for them. I was glad to oblige. So, here is one. I have done more.
Teischan (12) was struggling with metric conversion so I was trying to find resources that might help her. Came across this. The table on the left looked just what I was looking for. I was going to print it for her. Then I saw the example. That is EXACTLY the type of conversion she was having trouble with.
I had to do a double-take. Ahhh! Millimeters are SMALLER than meters. Ahhh! I had to check with a calculator to see that I was NOT cracking up.
Of course it is WRONG. Very wrong. SHE (and it is a she (and I am not talking about Teischan)) got it wrong. Got it backwards.
I send her a polite e-mail because we have all goofed on the Internet. She was snooty and told me that she was CORRECT. That was SAD.

I just came across this via a news feed story. Made by a subsidiary of the Chinese electronics giant ‘Xiaomi‘ who make a range of highly compelling phones. I haven’t had a chance to really check this out. Just wanted to share it with you ASAP. More later.
I, however, don’t think that this will actually happen. I already see folks talking about various ways to circumvent the ban.
I had just started blogging when Tumblr started. I was excited. It sounded great. Yes, I signed up and created a few blogs. But, I didn’t like it. They were very much into SHORT posts and in thoe days that wasn’t my style.
Well, this is worth keeping an eye on.
Tumblr without porn sounds like a joke.
