I’ve fallen seriously behind my miles goal for the Hike-A-Thon. I’m OK with that since I’ve gone with my mom and the kids and I realize they can’t keep a high pace. But, it does mean I need to make up the difference.
I plan on a long hike for today. I’ll be walking from the house to the Cedar to Green River Trail; taking it to the Cedar River Trail and following it all the way to Lake Washington for about 17 miles. There I’ll be meeting the family for a late picnic lunch. If I have any energy left (hopefully I will) Aileen will then drive me to Fort Dent so I can return south on the Interurban trail at about 15 miles to get picked up for dinner in Pacific.
My previous max at one time is 7 miles, so this is a big stretch. I plan on making at least the first half to Renton, anything after that is gravy.
Wish me luck, and remember that it’s not too late to sponsor me by the mile… I’ll have my phone with me, so go ahead and email me with an “if you do this many miles I’ll sponsor you message…” Or Facebook message me.
This is our “intelligent” blue heeler puppy minutes after we finally got a hole punched in the plastic animal cracker container he managed to secure to his head while scavenging. We got a hole popped in with a knife to give him enough room to breath while we gradually cut out the whole bottom of the container to the collar with metal shears. Once we got all of the thin plastic cut away, we were able to sneak the shears underneath the container’s collar and cut it in one motion. Tense night for us…
So it turns out I can;t just do a one click upgrade on Dreamhost since I didn’t install from there. It won’t be hard to self upgrade, but it’ll take longer than I have this weekend. And, I’m not as far off the latest version as I thought.
I will be looking to install some new plugins though. If any of them stick I’ll let you know which ones were enabled.
I need to call these out a little bit better in the UI of my site, but until I get the chance, let me link to specific projects that have been getting attention lately – since I know a few blogs just linked here and I got asked what the projects were… π
Twitterlicious.com – A mashup of Twitter, Del.icio.us, and Ma.gnolia.com that allows you to browse Twitter on a mobile device, and clip tweets to your bookmark service so that you can view embedded URLS at your leisure on a screen that supports the size.
BookmarkCleaner.com – A site that allows you many ways to clean out your bookmark service’s stored bookmarks. It works with Del.icio.us and Ma.gnolia.com as of now.ΓΒ You can search for bookmarks with particular tags, for URLS that no longer exist, and for suspected phishing and malware sites using the Google Safe Browsing API.
I’ll post later with more information, my other projects, and blogs for each project (although maybe I should just bring them all into this one…?)
