Wat in dei!

Doe't ik fannemoarn nei myn auto rûn, waard ik fuortendaliks bestookt mei in moaie iisstoarm. Stel jo rein foar, gewoan beferzen. Ik moast de iisskyl op myn auto (in Ford 500) brekke en dan sa'n 10 inch snie dy't fannacht foel, wiskje. De bern wiene thús - skoalle waard annulearre. Ik haw it makke sûnder in soad problemen te wurkjen (tankewol foar 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 is in prachtige stêd as it snie. De arsjitektuer en monuminten sjogge der ongelooflijk út mei snie dy't har delikat fêsthâldt. Ik woe dat ik hjoed mei in kamera rûn koe ... mar d'r wie wurk te dwaan.

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.

De rit nei hûs wie aardich stil. Mei de lege strjitten besleat ik myn soan te nimmen, Bill, 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.

Wy stopten foar in rap diner en ik kaam thús en begon te boartsjen mei wat PHP en 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!

    Ik socht eins wat ynformaasje oer trackbacks (sa fûn ik jo side), mar ik kin net leauwe, wat sjoch ik hjir op 'e grafyk! Ik wurke net sa fier fan Richmond, dus al dizze snie sjocht der geweldich foar my út! Wow! 🙂

    Huh, ja, ik fûn wat ik socht - tank. Kinne jo my fertelle wêrom't WP better is dan Serendipity? Ik begon krekt myn weblog, mar brûk Serendipity-software - wite jo it?

    [Ik kom út Poalen, wenje op it stuit yn Dútslân - foar my binne dy stoarmen net wat frjemd - mar yn jo gebiet is it frij seldsum - genietsje !!!]

      Hoi Maciek,

      Net fertroud mei Serendipity, Ik soe jo net wolle ôfskrikke it te brûken. Ik bin in fan fan WordPress fanwegen de mooglikheid om it oan te passen en de oanwêzigens op it web. Ik tink dat de funksjes fan bloggsoftware hieltyd mear standert wurde (pings, trackbacks, kommentaar, blogrolls, ensfh.), Dus as jo it leuk fine - gean der dan foar!

      Ien artikel dat ik lies hie Serendipity yn heul respekt en de funksjeset stelde ticht by WordPress, dus ik bin net wis dat de iene better is dan de oare.

      Groetnis,
      doug
