White New Year’s Eve

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

I’m still in Lincoln from the night before. I figured I should just stay in town and wait for the festivities. If I had gone home I probably wouldn’t have made it back tonight.

I guess it’s the style to end the year with a list. Instead of current events or awful movies I’ve decide to go with something I truly enjoy; here are my favorite t-shirts from this year.

  • Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006 I loved this animation and was glad I could support the artist. Even though I was drunk, I’m pretty sure I knew how expensive it was before the conversion from Euros.
  • Recon (awesome design, unfortunately no picture) I got this shirt from Hugo, the lead organizer of the intimate reverse engineering conference in Montreal. I hope to attend this year.
  • Dirty Digger I could care less about Digg but really enjoy this shirt.
  • Theoretical Sausage Limited edition design from Goats, the webcomic that I get most of my shirts from.
  • Hack-A-Day The design gets better every year. I love love love seeing people wearing these.

… or maybe Rails

Thursday, December 28th, 2006

I joked to Blaine how my idea of holiday fun was learning PHP. He suggested if I was starting from scratch anyway I might as well learn Ruby on Rails. That sounded like a grand idea to me and reminded me of a great blog post I read last year:

Cory and many others from Rackspace put in an incredible amount of work helping with the Katrina relief efforts. Here is his story: “Shelter Famous”, or, How To Build Disaster Relief Software (with Rails)

How To: Code Your First Web App (Part 1) I should probably stop posting links like this or everyone is going to lose faith in me. Paul Stamatiou is always really thorough though.

Gerald Ford dead today

Yes, Gerald Ford really did die, but all I can think of is that SNL clip above and his appearance on The Simpsons.

Livin’ in a WordPress Hacker’s Paradise Using svn and Xcode to maintain a WordPress blog while hacking it. Sounds very cool, but it isn’t surprising that my $3/mo. host doesn’t do svn.
