More cool stuff from xkcd land - 17:17
I do not recall if I read this previously, I recall the comic going on
about colour and some stuff online about the colour survey. However
Randall at XKCD did a survey to work out what colour names in the RGB
space are recognised as what by whom.
He has a
entry about the colour survey on line which is pretty damn
interesting reading. All the data is available if you wish to run your
own analysis, however seeing what differences between gender are is
entertaining for an intro as it is. Lets hope we do not live in a
Of course if you are bored with this, his collaborator who wrote the
front end for the survey has a
calcluator online to
work out the cost of filling your apartment/house/gogo mobile with
plastic playpen balls which will get anyone started on the path to world
domination I assume.
Jeffson Jersey - 12:10
Jeffson Custom Bikes (fullsize)
With some of these jerseys you may think there is a theme appearing,
which is lots of black. Obviously the perfect choice for coming into the
Australian summer. To the issue of having lots of black jerseys, I
guess i just have to obey Rule 5 in summer. As for the theme, do not
worry the jersey I will put on the diary tomorrow will break the theme
and return to normal race gear (for me).
This one, another purchase while in Rotorua, comes from Jeff Anderson at
kiwibikes. A frame builder who
had some rather cool bikes on display that he had built. I have been
missing my CX bike a bit since it was stolen so decided I would get Jeff
to build me a new CX frame. I sat down and talked with him about all the
things I want to do with it and how I want to fit it out. He checked out
my sizing and riding style and listened to what I did and did not like
about my previous CX bike and about other bikes.
So in a few months I should have a new Jeffson CX bike, I got started
on my accessory collection early with this jersey.
