I'm enjoying this episode, though I wish Helen Prejean was interviewed as well. I highly recommend her books.

I'm seeing @mxpx and @fiveironfrenzy tonight! It's like Cornerstone 15 years ago. With air conditioning, though.

Probably fewer Stryper costumes, though.

Doug Webster and I are reminiscing about how we met and old concerts. We met through The Sonshine Inn in 2000 when he was promoting a Mike Knott concert there. I got curious about the exact date and started searching to find it. I came across an archive of a Geocities page by someone who apparently recorded the concert. The page was last updated in 2008, but it listed an email address so I sent a message to see if they still have the recordings.

(The concert was May 23, 2000, in case you were wondering.)

Because that’s clearly what you say once you’re no longer out of foil.

In case you were wondering why and were down for ages, the database had finally filled up the disk. I eventually willed myself out of entropy and wrote a cron job to delete entries older than a year (or more than 2000th in their feed, from e.g. twitter-atom) DELETE FROM entry USING ( SELECT id, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY feed_id ORDER BY retrieved DESC) AS row FROM entry ) AS numbered WHERE = AND (row > 2000 OR retrieved < CURRENT_DATE - INTERVAL '365 days');

Typical silos, deleting users’ stuff without warning! ;]

Weather in Portland is amazing today. High of 80 vs 102 yesterday. Let's schedule this type of weather for next year! #indieweb

So, um, I sang karaoke for the first time ever last night. I am as surprised as you. It was a private room so that made it a lot easier.

I sang Flight of the Conchords “Business Time” and Jimmy Eat World “Sweetness.” The latter was synced poorly so messed me up, unfortunately.
