1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

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

    Not going to test it.

  5. 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…

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Perspective

    I loved the bit in the the latest episode of the Accidental Tech Podcast where John Siracusa says: We judge ourselves by our motivations and others by their actions. This hit home to me. It’s very common for people to make less-than-generous assumptions of others when they have very little information about them. Once you…

  10. Hack Isn’t PHP →

    You’re effectively writing in a new language, albeit with a much smaller learning curve than other language switches since you already know most of the syntax and API. But because Hack isn’t PHP, some of PHP’s biggest advantages – ubiquity, maturity, stability – don’t apply.

    I agree with a lot of this. As well as the follow up.

  11. Obama May Be Best Economic President Ever →

    Here’s an interesting calculation: Suppose that in 1929, you put $100,000 in a 401(k) fully invested in stocks. Under the 40 years of Republican presidents, you would have ended up with only $126,000. Under the Democrats, you would have amassed a retirement nest egg of $3.9 million! (All numbers are adjusted for inflation.)

    There are some interesting numbers in here, worth fact-checking. I’ve always been in the “things are better when everyone is doing well” camp, regardless of where I’ve fallen on the scale.

    Also, from the :bang: department…

    Deitrick says he’s perpetually shocked that Democrats don’t trumpet their economic triumphs.
