White New Year’s Eve

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

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)
