Using two Garmin GSC 10 Cadence Sensors with a single Forerunner 305

22 June 2008

In the past I’ve wondered whether it’s possible to use a single Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS trainer watch with two Garmin GSC 10 cadence sensors (i.e. with two different bicycles). The answer is, yes, you can; however, the device can only work with one sensor at a time. When you switch from one bike to the other, you have to enter Settings -> General -> Accessories -> Cadence Sensor, and from there perform a rescan, so that the 305 will pair with the other cadence sensor. So, you can only be paired with one sensor at a time.

Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

There's only five belts in BJJ -- white, blue, purple, brown and black -- so I'm only one step away from the BIG ONE. By no means do I feel like a brown belt (especially since I seem to sometimes still forget some of the very basics), so it's going to take some getting used to I guess! In theory the brown belt represents the bridge between purple and black, where the student needs to focus on leading and teaching, so those'll be my objectives this coming year.

End the flow of unwanted catalogs with Catalog Choice!

10 October 2007

Growing up in the US, I remember how annoying it was to receive commercial sales calls on the telephone late in the evening, when the family was sitting around trying to enjoy some quality time together. This problem was later solved (mostly) through the introduction of the "Do Not Call," registry — a legislated service which marketers must consult before they can call you. If your name is on the "Do Not Call" list, it's illegal for them to call you.
