Xercise Invention

I did the hacksaw work and hired a welder to attach the pedals to channel iron. The bicycle cost 5 bucks at a garage sale. Might have been stolen. It was a slightly rusty but perfectly good bike. Until I decided I needed it's heart. I guess the pedals would be a bicycles heart.

Not shown, the top of this hardware is for chin ups. That way you hold yourself steady and get a mini chinup out of every revolution of the pedals.

GrandCentral Message Center

I've discovered a fun way to make MP3 files for easy inport into Flash. Call yourself and leave a message. The grand central web site has a download button to send it to your local hard drive.

I haven't figured out how shorten my messages. They all play for a minimum 28 seconds. I can shorten them in flash of course.
