I recently completed a week of paid time off, which allowed me to completely level and landscape my front parkway with custom pavers. It also gave me some time to reflect on how time off affects my work once I return and what makes for quality time off.
A while ago—about the last post on this blog—I decided to start running Trunk. Since 3.6 was a few weeks away at that time and I wanted to know what was going on with Post Formats, I also modified the site to utilize some of the fun new functions. Then the Post Format upgrades were […]
It’s got a weird name; apparently it was named after an Al Capone henchman. Nitti is the font that IA writer selected for their popular writing apps. It’s monospaced, beautiful, and I want to put it in my code editor. In fact, I’d be happy if pretty much everywhere I did writing had this font. […]

This new one is designed to focus more on writing with the hope (read: dream) that I’ll blog a little bit more. […]
So for a while it looked like I actually might be regularly writing things for the blog. At least it looked like it to me. Possibly. Maybe. Then I got hired by a top-tier web development agency: 10up, LLC and I moved to Oregon and my life has been all sorts of busy since. This […]
