Resting the knee

My knee felt fine this morning but I didn't ski today so as to give it some time to rest up before the race training in Esquel next week; plus I didn't get up until around 11 as we didn't get in until 5am. This morning I sat by the lake reading and then had some lunch at the hotel. This afternoon I had a bit of a snooze, read some more of my book and caught up with email and chatted to my family.

We leave for Esquel tomorrow. I won't be taking my laptop so things will go quiet here for a week. I'll try and keep some notes so that I can write up the days when I get back. However, once we get back the BASI trainers will arrive and the real work will start, so it may take me a while to catch up.

While investigating how to extract the logs from my Suunto S6 watch on Linux, I googled to see if anyone had RE-ed the serial protocol for it and so saw your post from about 1.5 years ago. As the comments on this post were closed, I am posting this here...

So as I had some free time these last few days and as I only found information on the dive watches, I took a serial port analyzer and was able to find enough to extract the 'ski logs' (which is enough for me as I doubt I will be using the 'ski chrono' mode ever).

All information (in a rough and cryptical format for now :-) ) is available here:


PS: lucky you to be skiing right now... Still have at least 4 months to put my skis / snowboard out of the closet :-)

I would be very interested of methods to get ski log data out of my Suunto S6 on a Linux computer. Since above mentioned server seems to be down (useful ones always are) I would like to know if anybody managed to copy the protocol and could share it somewhere?
