My friend and former colleague, Jim Reevior, presented a talk at this week’s Boston WordPress Meetup titled “Self Hosting Beyond the Website.” It’s a great introduction to Linux distributions and the components that go into hosting WordPress without using a shared or managed host.
HBO released the latest Game of Thrones trailer, and this quote from Tyrion seemed quite appropriate to how I feel some days as I attempt to get things done:
That’s what I do. I drink, and I know things.
Props to my colleague Josh Betz for alerting me to this. The bit about typing commands to accomplish things made me laugh particularly hard; my job and hobbies involve a lot of that, so some things haven’t changed in 20+ years. 😀
Today at PressNomics 4, Josh Strebel shared an interview he did with Alex King back in September, just ten days before Alex passed following a long fight with cancer.
It’s both incredible to me, and simultaneously unsurprising, that Alex took the time to record this interview given how sick he was at the time–one final contribution to a community he was so important to and engaged with.
I do not want to be Wolverine.
This was absolutely hilarious.
I laughed for a good seven minutes.
