A nice little ride
We managed to get in an hour or so today, and get back before the rain started. We took the little bikes on some back roads, which is always fun. My F650GS single and Penny's F650CS.

We stopped at a light next to a cyclist, and I noticed he had both a GPS watch and a riding computer. I estimate that between them he had more computational power than an Apollo command module.

These days, either one alone would have more computational power than an Apollo command module.

You are probably correct. I went conservative on my estimation.

I don't know whether to be ashamed at the technological advancements that came from the space program (that doesn't even exist anymore) that we now wear on our persons and take for granted, or be awed at what they did with so little.

I generally go with, "a bit of both."
