Some climbing pictures

I’ve been climbing for awhile, and at some point I decided that I wanted to figure out climbing photography. Here is some of my noodling so far.

A ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway

I would like to thank the National Park Service, Camp Celo, and several friends who shall remain nameless here for a much needed reset in the form of a bike trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Friends at the camp were kind enough to let us park the car I’d borrowed for the trip off […]

python and virtualenv problems after Mountain Lion upgrade

Night owl

Couldn’t sleep. Have a picture I took.

some git links

[EDIT added tig] [EDIT added github email below] Git is a tool I’ve used, but never really invested in heavily or committed to learning deeply. I decided to put together a link roundup to help with learning at least in part because a coworker mentioned starting a project using subversion today, and this was the […]

my WordPress backups strategy

As mentioned previously, I had a major backups fail with this blog. I’ve now implemented a backups strategy that meets my needs, so I thought I would put together a post documenting what I did. Step one (1) is local backups of the WordPress database. There are any number of ways to do this, including […]
