Got back from our three-state holiday swarm last night. "Just remember: they come, they eat, they leave!" — A Bug’s Life # Finished clearing out the 500+ spams that made it past my filters earlier. Now I can start replying. Catching up from a holiday is painful. # Powered by Twitter Tools.

Going in to pack up the office. W00t! # Change in plan: had to pick up son from school. Will go back to office next week. # Last minute stuff before we hit the (crowded) roads.

Feh. Tasked with trying to integrate SSO into a third-party app I’ve never seen before, with no documentation. Not likely to work. # @gfmorris It might be more fun if they didn’t want it yesterday, and I wasn’t in my last week at this job 😉 # Powered by Twitter Tools.

Merry Christmas to me!

I get to unwrap one of my presents early this year, and it ranks up there with some of the best — a new job! I’ll be working with Alex King and the other fine folks at Crowd Favorite. I’m really excited to have the opportunity to work with this crew to tackle some great projects. Four years ago, when I joined in on the development of WordPress, it was just a fun thing to … Continue reading

The heat was off in our office this morning (a fault in the thermostat). It’s freaking freezing in here! Need another bowl of coffee… # Office thermostat now reads 72F, but it doesn’t feel like it. I’ve still got my coat on, and my fingers don’t want to type. # Getting ready to head home. L:34.159132,-84.464441 # Powered by Twitter Tools.
