Yesterday: First day of skiing for the year! Did a full day at Timberline with Ned, Leah’s dad. He’s a ski patroller, and it was a fun day tagging along to see what that’s like. 21k feet of vertical over 17 runs.

Today: Hiked Dog Mountain with Spittle. Gorge-ous day in the Gorge, but bitterly cold. Saw a few other brave souls.

Now: Just about the perfect time for a hot bath.

It would be nice if the WordPress comment reply UI in the admin had a WYSIWYG editor. Seems like an easy win.

Hell, WordPress should support Markdown in comments by default.

Wonderful, restorative long weekend in Victoria with Leah and her grandparents. Highlights: Saturday salon, lots of sleeping, morning walks to Moka Coffee, bananagrams, reading on the beach, and watching (almost) the first season of Breaking Bad.

Spent a long time thinking about my role in the WordPress community too. Wrote a pretty angsty post this morning that didn’t end up now I wanted it to. Still not sure how to solve the problems I see.

Working on a project with lots of separate Git repos? Create a master repo, add each repo as a submodule, and git submodule foreach git checkout dev. If you’re working on a feature that spans multiple repos, simply use the same branch name for each repo. Can’t believe I didn’t think about this before.

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.
