Fix for 2 second lag of Audacity in Ubuntu   James - Monday, November 6, 2017, 10:29 pm

Audacity wouldn't play the first two seconds of a recording in Ubuntu with PulseAudio. The fix is:

Edit: sudo vi /etc/pulse/default.pa

.ifexists module-udev-detect.so
    load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0
.else

Then:

pulseaudio -k
pulseaudio --start

National Bike Challenge   James - Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 9:11 pm

The National Bike Challenge has ended - I ended up 992nd in the US with a total of 5,719 points, 131 days ridden (May through September). Pretty pleased that I broke the 1000th place mark. Ended up 3rd in Erie, and 41st in Pennsylvania. Not too bad! As there are a few months left in the year, I have the potential for raising my ranks for the 'all year' category. bicycling national_bike_challenge
