solar cookers

Seeing as Murcia gets 300 days of sun per year, this would be pretty practical here, if I had a garden.

Tennis serve

I used my Exilim EX-FH100 high speed camera to record at 210fps and make an estimation of how hard my serve is, from this calculator.

According to the calculation, the first serve is in the region of 130mph, which is quite a lot harder than the average first serve of Rafa Nadal (105mph) or Roger Federer (114mph), although slightly short of their best. The real time footage (from one year ago), is a bit slower though.
