When I heard about the 78 year old who was knocked over by the bomb blast, only to get up and finish the marathon, I thought of my parents. Because that’s what they would do. That’s the kind of people they are, and that’s the kind of people their parents were. They’re Boston people.
I woke up to a bit of a scare when some of my alexking.org Gmail accounts were unable to log in to Gmail. I was afraid the accounts had been compromised and the passwords changed. I had secure passwords, but had been lazy about turning on 2-factor authentication for several of them – that’s all fixed now.
As it turned out, the hiccup ended up being due to a Gmail disruption.
I’ve also turned on 2-factor authentication for this site using this plugin (make sure to enable the app key if you use iOS or Android apps to connect to your site). Note that the Social logins for commenting still work without 2-factor authentication.
I’d recommend taking similar steps for your sites. Waking up to an “uh-oh” feeling is no fun at all.

Maybe the best “thoughtful” video I’ve seen from Ze. I was nodding so hard during the time he was talking about interviewing candidates.
“I’ve been wanting to learn/do more X but haven’t been asked to at work.” I’m sorry, what? You have a computer at home, you have the internet, what’s stopping you?
As someone who feels compelled to create and execute the ideas that come to me, I find it hard to see true passion in those who don’t share that trait. The ones that are passionate are the ones I want to be around as friends and work with as colleagues.
I wanted to utilize the WP 3.6 heartbeat API in an app I’m working on. I also wanted to include this feature before WordPress 3.6 officially shipped, so that meant it had to be compatible with WordPress 3.5.x as well. Turns out, it’s really easy. The heartbeat API looks excellent. View the code on Gist.
