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.
Boarding Delta 178 to fly off to Amsterdamn for the week (and then WordCamp Europe). Traded my exit row first class for 17G, which has a power outlet. What a concept! Looking forward to 10 hours of uninterrupted hacking…
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.
Thirteen mile run up Eagle Creek this morning with Jordan and Ry. First signs of fall on the trail. Gorgeous — coming up on my favorite season of the year.

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.
87 invites stamped, addressed and in the mail. Old school tech.
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:
Neat trick I just learned.
