Now I can try out all the tricks that Rob demonstrated at the January SQL meeting!
It analyses code and looks for bits that are really similar (or the same). Sounds like it would be useful to identify duplicate code blocks, especially in larger projects.
On Friday, I rode with my Dad (and 2,700 others!) in the Challenge Tour - a 128km ride from Stirling (in the Adelaide Hills) down to Victor Harbor. We entered the ride as part of the “Mud, Sweat and Gears” team, which are a group of cyclists from Blackwood Hills Baptist Church.
Unlike last year (> 40°C), the day was cool, and quite wet. Even though we were pretty soggy at the end of the ride, I’ve decided I much prefer to be wet than too hot.
We completed the ride in ~6 hours, which certainly wasn’t record beating, but a comfortable pace for us.
The only disappointing thing was that we missed out on riding under the finish arch by seconds, as they’d closed it off in preparation for the professional riders.
