My co-workers reminded me that yesterday marked 5 years of working at Automattic. It’s a neat milestone as it means I’ve now been at Automattic longer than any school I attended or any previous job I held. Looking forward to the next 5 years.

Delicious grilled pizzas with Daniel, Leah, and Stijn; great Friday.

Took advantage of summer weather to grill burgers, eat watermelon (with lime), and play board games with friends. Having a grill on the patio is fantastic.

Took advantage of Portland’s annual fake-spring to get a 3.5-mile run in on the waterfront. Totally looking forward to running in nicer weather more consistently.

Note to future self: always have a functioning backup keyboard in the house. You’ll save yourself a lot of hassle, and productivity, when your favorite keyboard dies.

This weekend is great timing for NBA League Pass to be free. Was just able watch the Warriors game from last night where Klay Thompson put up 37 in a quarter.

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.
