JSF BodyShop™ update; Bunny hop practice stand plans.

I have some excellent news regarding JSF BodyShop™: the website, software and database have been moved to the live JSF servers! Getting everything moved over from the development environment onto the live servers is a pretty big accomplishment, and I’m happy to report that, for the most part, this phase has gone amazingly well. Of course there are still some bugs that need to be squashed and quite a bit of testing that needs to be completed before we can enter the closed beta phase of this project, but Matt and I both feel pretty confident that we can remain on schedule and launch the beta before the end of the year. That said, we’re not going to put out a half-baked product; if new issues come to light during the our testing phase it could push things back a bit. I’ll keep you all posted!
Yesterday after work I decided to go outside and practice bunny hops. I was feeling pretty tired at that point (long day at work + a hard chest and triceps workout), and my jumps were not very good. I was getting pretty good height, but I kept mis-timing and my back tire would come down on the cardboard boxes I was using. So at this point I’ve pretty much destroyed every cardboard box in the garage. I’ve decided that I’m going to build a bunny hop stand to practice on. I stayed up all night working in a sophisticated 3D cad program. After countless hours of toiling I rendered the design you see to your right.
Basically it’s a bunch of 2x4s nailed together. The vertical boards will be 4 feet high (gotta dream big, right?), then the “feet” will be like 1.5 feet long with 18 inch boards at the ends to stabilize. I’ll nail together two of these, and then put nails at one inch intervals all the way up. For the bar I want to buy some sort of flexible tube, so when I hit the bar it will just bend and fall off the nails. I think this design should work pretty well.
I’m off to the patent office. Have a good one.
