I upgraded the WP theme and now a lot of the images don’t work. Its not a big priority to fix this but at some point I’ll get round to it. Its mainly still live in case any of the hints and tips are useful.
We’ve created a Strava club so you can see how much training we’ve been doing and also it shows our latest route plans:
We’re planning on getting out on our last proper training ride this weekend and then will be taking it easy to let the legs prepare for the onslaught that will be riding from one end of the country to the other!
Thanks for all your support – we are looking forward to it and slightly daunted in equal measure!

Exciting stuff – watch this space! 🙂

This photo was taken on my SLR – starting to get better shots out of it…
This error message has been annoying the hell out of me anytime I try and do anything with my packages on my Ubuntu server:
subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 2
Following the instructions at http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/troubleshooting-debian-ubuntu-package-upgrades-removals.html (expect that I had to comment out the line set -e with a # and hey presto package installation and removal works again!
Phew. Sometimes Linux still requires hacking about – but I guess at least you can get in there and fix things once you know how – unlike the dll-registry hell / black box of Windows!
Ever wanted to produce a movie style (okay Movie-ish!) DVD cover for a personal video project? Well I’ve come up with a photoshop template that allows for printing on to A4 card (and then trimming to fit) to do the insert that goes under the clear plastic on a standard DVD box. Note that this folds so the section on the left will be on the back, the middle will be the spine and the right will be – yep you guessed it – the front.
You can either buy new DVD boxes (tesco sell them reasonably cheap) or take an old DVD case (like the ones you get with free DVD’s you get with Magazines or old game cases) and remove the existing insert replacing it with your own. If you print / trim carefully you can get it to show the label along the spine perfectly – this sometimes takes some trial and error!
This photoshop template is quite large (as its high res and designed for good quality print output) so I have zipped it up – get it by clicking this link. I’ve also exported it to JPG in case photoshop is of no use and you want the general idea. You can be as simple or as creative as you want with this basic design – I tend to throw a few stills from the video (or even better similar shots from a digital camera as they are better quality) on the case.
Hope this is useful – I am making this available for non-commerical usage only – please contact me if you are using this for profit making projects (although I’d doubt you would want to – as its not really polished enough!)
Whilst doing this I discovered mediafire.com which is where I am hosting the file from as its quite large – pretty impressive and very quick (no registration is needed which is a bonus).
