On a sci-fi kick right now. Well, the kick has been on for a while. Fortunately I’ve found two great series: Iain M. Bank’s Culture, and Taylor Anderson’s Destroyermen. Twelve and five books long, respectively.

With any luck, these should hold me out a few more weeks…

Trail run with Jordan today to Hood’s Paradise Park. Twelve miles in total over three hours, and running for nine miles / two hours.

I didn’t bonk on this one, but I did feel pretty beat at the end of it. And today definitely wouldn’t have been a good day for forty.

The theory is that it was a combination of dehydration and the wrong heart rate for me. Planning to pick up a Garmin GPS + heart rate monitor watch — we’ll see how slow running at 145 bpm is like.

All my life I’ve wanted a way of comparing the contents of a site to the contents of the import file I just ingested. Imports always result in funky data, no matter how hard you try.

Next six weeks: Seattle, New York, Japan, Wisconsin, UK, Alaska, San Francisco. I don’t even…

If you’re only using one Vagrant on your local machine, you can make your Vagrant available everywhere by setting an environment variable in your .bash_profile:

export VAGRANT_CWD=/path/to/vagrant/directory

Neat trick I just learned.

We’re using Github issues for all of our projects, but I still like Remember The Milk as the interface for deciding what I need to work on next. It would be neat if the two worked together.

An issue assigned to me in Github would produce a new inbox task in Remember The Milk (if one didn’t already exist with the issue in the URL field). I could then list, prioritize, and give a due date as needed. Completing the task in Remember The Milk would complete the issue in Github (and vice versa).

Plans for today and tomorrow: running in Forest Park, picking up shelves to finish the entryway, designing the blag, hiking in the Gorge, getting a new book at Powell’s, making nograinola, and/or seeing a movie. In no particular order. The best type of weekend.
