Bitten by the photo bug again

This is why I need to shoot photos more often: when I get back into it I want to take photos of everything. Last week I used my Yashica Electro 35 GSN camera and shot a roll of color and… Continue Reading →

Getting back into the photography routine

Tonight there will probably be another snowfall so I don’t know if I’ll get any street shots tomorrow. I’ve put on the “never ready” case and replaced the camera strap on my Yashica Electro 35 GSN. The original strap worried… Continue Reading →

Fixing my SSL based shortlinks

If you look at the HTML source for this NGINX post I wrote you’ll find this code. Which was inserted when I published the post via Jetpack. Shortlinks are cool. But if you use curl -LI on that wp.me URL… Continue Reading →

Constantine is a fun show

I’m watching NBC’s Constantine via FIOS on demand. It’s a fun show but I wonder how faithful it’s going to be to the original comic. I’ve not look at that comic for ages. Unlike the Keanu Reeves version, this one… Continue Reading →

October 24th

Tomorrow is the 2nd anniversary of when my Dad passed away. It’s also the day I fly to attend WordCamp San Francisco and in all the excitement I’d completely forgotten the significance of the day. That’s alright and it’s good…. Continue Reading →
