Composer in WordPress. Nice — answers both of the questions I had. Can’t wait to convert my first project away from submodules.
A horrid, crazy idea: a Git endpoint for the content in my WordPress install.
One step back to the problem I’m trying to solve. More and more, I enjoy writing in Markdown with iA Writer. “Publishing” whatever document I’ve written generally involves hitting the Preview button in iA Writer, and then copy and pasting text into WordPress. Yes, the same workflow I’ve been preaching against for years.
I wish I could have a Git checkout of content in WordPress, make edits locally using my editor of choosing, commit, and push back to master. I’m aware of Jeykll and the other hipster “content management systems”, however I’m still an old-school content in a database kind of guy.
Interview With The Founders of WPRemote. Fair number of cool improvements in the work, if I don’t mind saying so myself.
mislav/issuesync. Sync Github issues for reference on the plane.
Japan: weird, polite to a fault, and bubble gum. I hate to be one of those people who say “you don’t know it until you experience it,” but that’s exactly the case. Always looking for an excuse to travel, Leah and I hit Tokyo, the… Continue reading →

Jet lag is a killer, but you can fight back.
As a kid, I remember distinctly the effects of jet lag. One trip in particular had me fall asleep on a bench along the Champs-Élysées at four in the afternoon. My family waited for me to wake back up, patiently munching on baguettes. Another had me tour around zombie-like for 42 hours because I simply couldn’t fall asleep.
The same kid who couldn’t sleep on planes for the life of him is now out in a heartbeat. Mitigating jet lag is a combination of: sleep at the right time, plenty of water and small meals, and caffeine, but not too much.
Coming back from Italy last June, I fought jet lag by running around the Coliseum late at night. I was sufficiently tired by my 6 am flight that I slept the entire way home. Given how timezones work, I landed in Portland mid-morning, drank my Earl Grey, worked a few hours, drove to Sunriver, and was convinced to do a half-marathon the next day.
Last week plus change, Leah and I flew to Tokyo. For me, it was the day following a return from New York — I had a total of 11 timezones to deal with. Our flight out was at 8 pm local and arrived 10 pm local. I slept six hours on the plane, spent a couple hours in transit to our hostel, and then slept four more hours. On our first day in Japan, we managed a full day of sightseeing.
Today, I’m back in Portland, rocking to Kyary Kyary Pamyu, and, having been up since 2 am, keeping my fingers crossed that my theory holds.
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.
The Beastles – Ill Submarine. No typos… this mashup is so much awesome.
