My Labor Day weekend project was moving this site to Linode. It’s all up and running now, along with a new Twenty Thirteen child theme I put together. Overall the process was pretty simple. Linode’s default script for a LAMP stack worked well. From there I set up a multisite network, adjusted some virtual host records, and was on my way. The upside is that the site’s now way, way faster than it used to be. Huzzah for SSDs.
Daemon, and its sequel Freedom, by Daniel Suarez are two of the best fiction books I have read in a long time. Props to Daniel for the recommendation.
I want an Instapaper-style app that connects to my blog and then tells me what percentage of articles I end up linking to.
I just started reading The Birth of the Museum by Tony Bennett. I’ve been fascinated by museums for a while now and lucked out in getting a reading list from a friend’s course at Cambridge. Slow reading so far but good stuff.
Put together a quick theme idea tonight and pushed it live to this site. Possibly a few rough areas around the edges. Overall I’m pretty happy with it, though. Really simple to put together; though I did miss my goal of keeping it under 1,000 lines of CSS. Will need to find a way to trim 50 lines.
Apparently it takes about two weeks to get completely out of shape. Ooph.
Had a great breakfast at Jam on Hawthorne this morning followed by a long overdue run. Nice that it’s finally sunny again.
I finally got all packed and even cleared my inbox and task list. Ready for three weeks of vacation now. London, Bath, Cambridge, the Lake District, and more are on the agenda.
Not quite 4pm and I’ve written 3,500 words at Write the Docs. Fun day so far and a solid conference.
