  1. hello, world

    I started Early -- Took my Dog --
    And visited the Sea --
    The Mermaids in the basement
    Came out to look at me --

    And Frigates -- in the Upper Floor
    Extended Hempen Hands --
    Presuming Me to be a Mouse --
    Aground -- opon the Sands --

    But no Man moved Me -- till the Tide
    Went past my simple Shoe --
    And past my Apron -- and my Belt
    And past my Boddice -- too --

    And made as He would eat me up --
    As wholly as a Dew
    Opon a Dandelion's Sleeve --
    And then -- I started -- too --

    And He -- He followed -- close behind --
    I felt His Silver Heel

  2. how to walk through a door

    Let's say I am giving directions for how to leave this room. In Python, I would just say something like 'Get up and go through the door. In other languages, I might have to say something like, 'Stand up, but not with so much force that you fall over, take three steps to the north, take one step to the east, approach the door, check that it is not open, if it is not open, open it, then step through it with this amount of speed...'.

    Finally. At long last.

I think. Not all the DNS is propogated yet, so we'll see. But the uncertainty won't keep me from DANCING!

  4. Koding with PHPStorm

    A year or so ago I stumbled over Koding (my referral, if you're feeling benevolent), a social development platform that gives you (and everybody on your team) a disposable Ubuntu virtual machine, a web-based SSH terminal and code editor, and a giant network of fellow devs. It's a nifty place, and I've used it to collaborate with friends, teach myself Django and R and AngularJS and CoffeeScript, work through Coursera algorithms homework, develop new web applications, test documentation, play with Node modules I don't want on my regular machine, and so on, ad infinitum. The Icelandic ...

  5. monobar gets a monomenu

    Way back in the dark ages of less than a year ago, I read what was to become a classic Linus Torvalds rant on the inadequacy of Github pull requests. Afterwards, I started seeing it everywhere: text boxes that tell me nothing about the text! I mean really, the nerve. How am I supposed to write pretty text for ancient, barely-used applications like Lynx and mutt if I have no idea what the text is doing?! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE.1

    Doing something!

    So I made a Chrome extension. When you're in a text field (specifically a <textarea> field ...
