  1. I'm continuing with the Hogwarts theme, even though I might not be around much over this next challenge. This time, it's going to be a very simple challenge. 1. Do something to improve my pulling power or grip strength every day. 2. Do something to improve my flexibility every day. 3. Do something to improve my computer skills every day. 4. Do something to help my mental well being every day. None of these really need to be much. I just want to stay on track with doing at least a little bit. Otherwise, I'm doing parkour class on Saturdays
  2. I have been struggling a long time with self-discipline and computer addiction (which increases my body’s feeling of weakness and tiredness). I make plans all the time to do better, I make lists almost every day of things to do but I never follow through. I have made many challenges but failed, it's a cycle of overeating-computer addiction-body fatigue(from just sitting, and being out of shape) I want to change, I want to do better. Instead of doing challenges, I want to do a log for the rest of 2016, which is of changing habits. This log will initially be for August 15th 2016-Janu
  3. Intro: At the end of January 2015, I weighed 255 lbs, hated myself, and constantly felt sick and tired. I started watching what I was eating, and then at the end of February took the plunge and joined a gym. I came across NF a week before the April 2015 6WC started. There are links to my introduction/origin story and my first eight challenges in my sig below. Feel free to go rummage around in there. I’ve made steady progress through the challenges over the last 12 months, with just the occasional setback. In October, I was invited (and thrilled) to become an Ambassador for the Adventurers guil
  4. So, I went to download some stuff to start writing code again... just a Software Development Kit and IDE... with the goal of making some apps to see if I still dig the problem solving aspect of writing programs. Apparently, my dinosaur computer is too old. Maybe I could shell out some money and upgrade it so I could upgrade the OS so I could run some stuff... but it's not the machine I would have picked if I'd had other choices at the time. (It's an iMac from 2007-8. It was free. It is currently serving its purpose of web browsing and occasionally running Word and Excel, and sometimes be
  5. This is for all the folks on Nerd Fitness who are also on HabitRPG so we can get together to talk about the program and maybe form parties. http://habitrpg.com for those who have no idea what I'm talking about and want to know about the game.
  6. My computer is very, very slow, even after reinstalling Windows and starting from scratch. It's a few years old, so I suppose it's to be expected. Therefore, I am in the market for a new one! WHAT I NEED IT TO DO: -Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. -Gaming! Torchlight 2, Skyrim, that kind of thing. Doesn't have to run on the highest settings, but it's gotta be smooth. -General web browsing, email checking, boring stuff. Obvs. The guy at Best Buy was trying to sell me on one of these Lenovo ThinkPad things: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenovo-thinkpad-yoga-14-2-in-1-14-touch-screen-laptop-i
  7. For his birthday, my nephew has requested a computer programming book, he suggested Java, but if someone has other suggestions not Java I think that would work. Not sure what his math skills are,but not advanced. We bought my son a C++ book when he was this age, and it was too hard. But the ones for younger students are sometimes way too easy. He wants something that he can just work through on his own. If he can only do the first half the book and then it gets difficult and he needs to wait, that would work. Any suggestions?
  8. I'm falling back into the bad habit of being on the computer too late. Note posting time as evidence. I would like to do a mini-challenge during our challenge break. All computer,TV, electronics turned off by 9:30. The challenge will start Monday July 21 and end on Sunday July 28th. Anyone want to take the challenge with me? We can post here on how we are doing and encourage one another.
  9. besides me, of course. i have been using it avidly at home since 2008, but i know very few other people who do the same. i figured that, since this is a forum for nerds, there must be at least a Linux user or two lurking here somewhere. that said, if you use Linux, reply to this post with your distro of choice and why you like it.
