Check enabled compile time flags (hack)


A quick hack to check all the enabled compile time flags.

make -C  /that/dir V=1

This makes verbose, if everything is built, you will not see the flag.

Just touch one of the file in /that/dir and try it out.

Lowering resting heart rate

Heard about this in an interesting TED talk. The average heart beats 2.5 Billion times in a life time. 80beats per min, 79 years of average age. The theory is that if you do cardio which elevates your heart rate for sometime, your resting heart rate goes down. Thus giving you a longer life time to expend your 2.5Billion heart beats. If you lower your heart rate by a few beats, you will get a few extra years!!
