PolarBlog: Sundial Beta

I, like you was beginning to wonder if there would ever be another PolarBlog release.  After all, it's been nearly 15 months since PolarBlog V1.10.2 was released.  But alas there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

I've updated this blog such that is running Sundial as a beta, the next release of PolarBlog.  So if you see something wacky, please let me know.  The main difference is the new navigation calendar (the one one see in the upper right corner) and also the addition of the (optional) Entry Calendar.  Other that this there are a number of smaller changes and third-party package updates.  So hopefully this will be released publicly in the coming weeks…if I don't get super busy again.

Take2: New Pedals and Shoes!

So nearly two years ago I bought New Pedals and Shoes!  Apparently I never followed that post up, but I ended up returning both.  The Cannondale RP 2000 shoes were way too narrow so I initially exchanged them for some other shoes.  I don't recall what those were, but they didn't fit right either.  I also decided I wasn't completely enthralled with the Time RXE Composite road pedals either.  Thus I sent it all back.  Frustrated and not really needing to spend the money in first place, I opted to just stick with my old Shimano shoes and the SPD pedals I had been using.

But all has changed for my 2009 season.  For Christmas my parents bought me the Look Keo Classic pedals that I've been eying for a longtime.  No, the're not the super spiffy, super lightweight carbon fiber and titanium ones.  That's way serious cash and honestly I really don't need anything like that anyway.  These meet my needs; reasonable price and a wider platform than the SPD's I have been using.

As for shoes I've opted for a pair of Shimano SH-R131S racing shoes with a carbon sole.  It's revolting just how worn out my previous shoes are after slipping these on!  They're a far better shoe than old ones —comparable to the Cannondale's, but with the bonus of actually being wide enough to get my foot in!  The carbon sole wasn't a requirement, but is certainly welcome.  But what was a requirement for me this time was shoe with a micro-adjustable buckle.

Now I just need to get all of this put together on the bike and dial in the setup.  But before I can do that I need do some serious year-end/year-start maintenance.  Oh, and get some jobs around the house done so my wife might actually let me outdoors!
