Just finished Sam Miller’s beautiful book in the wee dark hours and it is a GEM. Qaanaaq is a place – I can see it and feel it’s culture, smell the noodles and the brine, feel the bitter cold. It’s like a long Geoff Manaugh article come to life. The nano-bonded orca-amazon that opens the book is one of the least weird things in it.
I did my second obstacle race last weekend and it was glorious. This time, instead of just being alone, I had a crew. I saw them at the beginning and the end, but it was good to have a posse! I got all the obstacles except three that I gave up (too early) on.
Mike, the guy in the sling, had his arm broken by someone’s knee in the race and KEPT RUNNING!
This is mostly an excuse to share some cool pictures.
I did great on time but next race I’m going for strict completion of everything. I should be able to do it!
Not only does the command line work, but there’s a really nice terminal ui.
There’s a decent web view as well, but it seems to be view only.
Distributed issue tracking is great for people like me who sometimes write code without a network connection. You have your code and your issues to work on all in the same place! It’s probably terrible for project that have lots of non-technical commandline using folks working on them.
OMG. I’m doing something right or Max is just having a better life. Last night he drew me these amazing cards.
Not much motion, but I’m hip deep in some clever stuff around re-exposing imports from one namespace to another and our Python3 conversions. We are into the details here and it’s always a lot of grind.
OMG. My dude Ian Sudderth threw a birthday party at Momofuku Ssam. It was more food than I could eat, more drinks than I could drink and I biked home so full my guts hurt.
