Entries from February, 2011
I’m blogging on Interstate 40 in Tennessee right now. On a laptop. Going 80 miles per hour. I’m also tweeting and taming my inbox (it blew up with unfiltered listserv emails I was not expecting to receive).
My wife and I are going to Nashville to visit her sister, and it’s her shift behind the wheel. So I’m taking a break from back-seat driving and writing a little something here.
It never ceases to amaze me where we are technologically. That is all.
I’m not sure why, but I just cant stop laughing whenever I see this picture, or even think about it (below the fold). Continue Reading
This is a compilation of as many of my thoughts from this morning’s commute as I could write down on the commute. Isn’t WMATA just awesome?
I can hear your obnoxious and repetitive rap music, large black man behind me. I wonder how you would like being forced to listen to Fuare’s Requiem against your will.
Green line delay? But I’m not on the green line. Doesn’t that make it a yellow line delay then?
Ridership is thinning, unlike the rider beside me.
If I had a cattle prod, would you all MOOOOOve faster?

How hard is it to get a darn escalator working?
The only thing I’ve never seen broken on metro is the machines that take our money.
WordPress is a large application. According to Westi’s XREF of trunk, WordPress defines 188 classes, 3840 functions, and 302 constants (since the xref counts variables of all scopes, I’m not including them here). For comparison, depending on your version of PHP, there are anywhere from 2-4 thousand native functions in the language. With so many functions, WordPress is bound to have some really cool ones floating around; and unless you either read core or are active on trac and/or #wordpress-dev, you might not have seen these before.
So, in my writeup of the town hall with Matt Mullenweg, I promised a post about the after-party (and after-after-party).
After the meetup, a bunch of us went across the street to Tsunami Sushi & Lounge. 1 Matt bought every bottle of Bamboo Princess sake they had in the bottle, and everybody was having a grand old time of it. A bunch of us ordered sushi too. Continue Reading
- Thanks to eschapp for pointing out their website. Who else thinks it needs to be redesigned and put on WordPress? ↩
