Another Year Over (and what have I done) ...

Its hard to keep track of everything that happened to Ardour and to me and my family over the last year, but one thing I do know is that its been a year since I last raced the American Triple T near Portsmouth, OH. This last (US Memorial Day) weekend I returned there for a 3rd time, this time with my wife racing as well. This is a unique event that involves 4 triathlons in 3 days: a very short sprint race on Friday evening, 2 olympic distance races (1500m swim/40km bike/10k run) on Saturday and then a half-iron race (1.2 mile swim/55.5 mile bike/13.1 mile run) on Sunday. Even though Ardour 3.0 is not released yet, I take some comfort from gaining another 7-8 minutes over my time from 2008, and in more difficult conditions.Here’s the annual breakdown:

2007: 26:53 / 2:45:53 / 2:51:56 / 6:17:44 / total: 12:22:27
2008: 25:57 / 2:31:11 / 2:45:20 / 5:56:41 / total: 11:39:08
2009: 25:44 / 2:30:34 / 2:42:41 / 5:52:21 / total: 11:31:20

My wife had a great first time at TTT, though her final run fell apart a bit. She finished in 12:09 total to place 2nd among masters (40+) women, with very little long distance training.

Time now to get back to work on Ardour 3.0 (and the 2.8.1 bugfix release).

Footnote: the following weekend, I followed up the same I did last year - with another half-iron distance race called “Black Bear”. Last year (2008) I got 3rd in age group, and 42nd overall. This year I managed 2nd in age group and 33rd overall, total time of 5:20:18 Your doctor recommends at least a half-iron every weekend …

Good News as always! Congrats and thanks for all your hard work!

Ardour’s recording capabilities are limited only by the hardware it is run on. There are no built in limitations in the software. When recording on top of existing material Ardour can do latency compensation, positioning the recorded material where it was intended to be when recording it.
