Milline päev!

Kui ma täna hommikul oma auto juurde kõndisin, viskas mind koheselt mõnus jäätorm. Kujutage ette vihma, lihtsalt külmunud. Pidin oma autol (Ford 500) jääkesta murdma ja seejärel eile õhtul maha sadanud umbes 10 tolli lund puhastama. Lapsed olid kodus - kool tühistati. Panin selle tööle ilma eriliste probleemideta (aitäh jumalale AWD).

I hiked the 4 blocks to work through the snow and was pretty much exhausted (yea, I know… lose weight!). At work, a nice arrangement of bagels and fruit awaited the brave few who made it in. On a floor with 30+ other people, I think I was one of 6 that made it to the office. I live South of Indianapolis and the Northside was really beaten up bad! And tonight there's a repeat:

Indianapolis on ilus linn, kui sajab lund. Arhitektuur ja monumendid näevad välja uskumatult, kuna lumi on neile õrnalt külge kleepunud. Ma soovin, et oleksin võinud täna kaameraga ringi käia ... aga tööd oli teha.

Work was a real challenge. I spent the day on Instant Messenger and the phone. We've got an engaged team of professionals that are starting to build momentum on a great release for early next year. Not having others to bounce ideas and commentary off of really made it tough to be productive, so I buried myself in documents and did some prototyping.

Kojusõit oli päris vaikne. Kui tänavad olid tühjad, otsustasin võtta poja, arve, out to get some experience driving in the snow. We found a great empty lot with over a foot of snow and I had him do some donuts, loss of control practice, sliding and quick braking… he was pretty amazed at how the car handled it (as was I)… antilock brakes, traction control, and all wheel drive really do provide so much more control. It's amazing. He practiced for about 30 minutes and then we left just in case someone called the police and thought we were messing around.

Peatusime kiireks õhtusöögiks ja jõudsin koju ning hakkasin mängima mõne PHP-ga ja Technorati's API. Some of the code samples haven't been touched in years on their site (hint, hint). With PHP5's handling of XML inherent, I hope that someone does some updating soon. I wrote some code but couldn't actually get valid responses via PHP… so now I'm frustrated and calling it a night. I don't believe it's their API… I can cut and paste my request in the browser with no issues.

My hope is to build a nice widget that provides a profile of a blog… the ranking, latest posts, tag cloud, etc. so that it's easy to either post it on your own blog or look up someone elses. I'll get there, but I'm calling it a night. Sorry this isn't a more helpful post! I'll get back on track soon!

I'm going to get some sleep for the hike tomorrow!

    Otsisin tegelikult mingit teavet jälgimiste kohta (nii leidsin teie saidi), kuid ma ei suuda uskuda, mida ma siin graafikul näen! Töötasin Richmondist mitte nii kaugel, nii et kogu see lumi tundub minu jaoks hämmastav! Vau! 🙂

    Huh, jah, ma leidsin selle, mida otsisin - aitäh. Kas saaksite öelda, miks WP on parem kui Serendipity? Alustasin just oma veebipäevikut, kuid kasutades tarkvara Serendipity - kas teate seda?

    [Olen pärit Poolast, praegu Saksamaal - minu jaoks pole need tormid midagi imelikku -, kuid teie piirkonnas on see üsna haruldane - naudi !!!]

      Tere, Maciek,

      Ei ole tuttav Serendipity, Ei tahaks ma teid selle kasutamisest veenda. Olen WordPressi fänn, kuna mul on võimalus seda kohandada ja see on veebis olemas. Ma arvan, et blogimistarkvara funktsioonid muutuvad üha standardsemaks (pingid, trackbackid, kommenteerimine, blogrollid jne), nii et kui see teile meeldib - siis tehke seda!

      Üks minu lugetud artikkel pidas Serendipityt väga kõrgeks ja funktsioonikomplekt sobis tihedalt WordPressiga, nii et ma pole kindel, kas üks on parem kui teine.

      soovidega,
      Doug
