The diary and photos of Chris Beach. I'm into windsurfing, coding, badminton, drawing and composing music using computers and synths.

Let's start with a quote:
"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours" Stephen Roberts

motivation is .. a graph

Mission - instrument my life. I'm using an open-source graphing tool to record technical stats on my dedicated server every five minutes, and I've also written plugins to record personal stats:

  • Bank balance
  • Credit card balance
  • Value of investments
  • Number of Twitter followers
  • Distance run
  • Running speed averaged over last five runs

It's started to affect my motivation to spend/save, and to get fit. Latest addition to the graphs is strength measurements. i.e. how much weight lifted on five different exercises in the gym (3 sets, 10 reps per exercise), which is updated via an iPhone web app:
