1. Heartbleed and Pinboard →

    In layman’s terms, the bug was the equivalent of asking a stranger “hey, what’s up?” and having them tell you their most private thoughts, going on about their divorce, sharing their credit card info, whatever was on their mind at the time. You could keep asking “what’s up” as often as you wanted, and hear new things each time. Worst of all, the stranger would have no recollection that it had happened.

  2. Incredible day at The Masters. What a golf course. I’m exhausted.

    Now on to Pointe Vedre. TPC Sawgrass tomorrow.

  3. Augusta Photo Walk

    In the evening I went for a brief stroll along the river walk and down Broad street. I took a few photos. Then on my way back to the hotel I had to pull over to take a few shots of First Baptist Church against an awesome sky. That’s a big church. This post is…

  4. Blue Skies at Forest Hills

    Forest Hills

    What a difference a day makes. Today turned into the kind of day I was hoping for on this trip and I took advantage of the weather to play a round of golf at Forest Hills. I was joined by two British chaps who had arrived in the wee hours of the morning. They were…

  5. Augusta History Museum

    Ty Cobb

    With a little time to kill yesterday I went to the Augusta History Museum. Pretty interesting mix of stuff. There was a bit on the revolutionary and civil war, complete with various weapons and uniforms. There was also a bit about golf and an interesting mix of stuff about famous people from the Augusta area.…

  6. Hypothesis: I could eat at a different Waffle House for every meal on this trip.

    Not going to test it.

  7. An Inauspicious Start

    Masters Practice Round Canceled

    Today was supposed to be one of my two practice round days at the Masters. Poseidon has intervened unkindly and I find myself instead in a Panera in a strip mall on my laptop. I’m on my way to check out a museum and scope out a place to watch tonight’s NCAA game – any…

  8. Embarking on a two week trip full of golf, family and friends. At The Masters tomorrow.

  9. Portland Photo Walk

    I was in Portland (Oregon) this weekend for OwnerCamp. On Sunday I had an opportunity to mosey around a bit and take a few photos. All photos taken with a Panasonic GX-7 + 20mm prime lens. I’m still loving this kit and not missing my Canon DSLR.

  10. The GitHub Rug

    I somehow missed this kerfuffle when it was all going down, but I read about it recently and it’s stuck with me. I think if I were in the decision making position when this happened my first instinct would would have been to dig in my heels. When I first saw the “United Meritocracy of…
