This STATulator was born around new years 07, I was talking with some bike riding buddies and they were looking at their end of year spreadsheets. How many miles they rode, how little they used their mountain bike... And the inner geek in me decided to write the STATSulator.
After a full year of use it has turned out really useful for me. It has shown me how much I rode my commuter bike, after that the mountain bike... But now I carried my craziness over to a new level and track my weight in it as well.
As a project I thought it would be neat ot also make a physical desktop display for it that at a glance would display my stats, to see if I could skip riding that day. :)
