    • @heathcurtiss Let me circle back to you on this, remind me if I forget by early next week. ,
    • @craigcramer Have you done hard reset(complete wipe)? Sounds like file corruption issue. I haven't really had any issues in last year or so. ,
    • @alemaodh True, though it can be flaky. What's the issue with your setup? ,
    • I've decided that sometimes watching comments on review posts is like watching bumble bee soccer. Also as tricky to control. ,
    • @MisterGilmore Correct. I see a delay as inevitable. On the bright side, Vivofit2 units arrived today at Clever Training. ,
    • @abussey1 Regrettably, I'm not in Martinique. Odd that Twitter thinks I'm there. :/ Wishful thinking perhaps! ,
    • The Stryd running power meter launched yesterday on Kickstarter. Since then, it's climbed through $100K in funding. ,
