Occassional thoughts about orienteering

"...but it was a short fat.""I could not get it to vote - but it was a short fat."
That's a quote from a Danish JWOC runner run through Google translate. The original article is worth a look if you can read Danish. If you can't read Danish, you might try translating it using Google translate; be forewarned it isn't going to be especially easy to understand.
The gist of the article is that the juniors from Denmark have positive attitudes and approaches...and have had great results.
What caught my eye about the Danish article was, in part, the parallel to an article in yesterday's NY Times business section about what kind of employees tend to grow. Here's a quote:
“People who believe in the power of talent tend not to fulfill their potential because they’re so concerned with looking smart and not making mistakes. But people who believe that talent can be developed are the ones who really push, stretch, confront their own mistakes and learn from them.”
New Version of QuickRoute
I've been very happy with the first versions of QuickRoute - a software program for putting a GPS track on an image of an O' map.
I haven't yet tested the latest version, but I'm expecting it to be new and improved. You can download it here.
