Tip: .tar.bz2

Ever get a file off the internet with a .tar.bz2 extension? Well, you can extract it in one step like this:

curl http://cf1.vuze.com/files/VuzeInstaller.tar.bz2 | tar xjv

Rather than extracting the tar first, then extracting the tar, then removing the archives. Running curl and piping it to tar in this way means you don’t need to write anything to the disk other than the extracted files, and it extracts as it goes.

Half Marathon Training – Day 83

ZR, miCoach, Endomondo

My body is aching, my legs are hurting, but I feel GREAT! 17.22 km (10.70 miles), 2 hours. Another few km and I’ll hit Half Marathon distance. And I broke several records on today’s run:

  • Calories burned in one session (1338 calories) – ironically, my calorie target is 1500 calories per day, so this run almost burned my entire calorie allowance.
  • Time spent in one session (2:06:35)
  • Distance travelled in one session (17.22 km)
