I love it when I came back to a project, start extending my code, and my own error messages explain how to continue. Thank you past self. 👏
Such a productive morning. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t check email until after 11:30.
Tonight during bath time, our 6 year old gave the following hair washing advice to her 3 year old sister:
Just swish it around like there’s a wild rodeo going on up there.
Two great sights from a little star gazing I did this evening:
- The International Space Station passed over my head just after 10:30pm. It slowly started reflecting enough light for me to see it once it was fairly high in the southwestern sky. Then I watched as it passed overhead and continued catching enough sunlight for about 20 more degrees. I always love watching it, and I try to catch a glimpse whenever I can.
- Jupiter is very prominent in the southeastern sky. It’s so cool to be able to pick it out so easily.
Some quick notes from this week in the office:
One client threw me a slight curveball when he emailed saying he was demoing the React app I’d been building for them, and it was crashing. We hadn’t discussed this demo one bit, and I would have preferred to have been a bit more prepared.
As I posted earlier this week, I released my SSHman CLI tool. I’d been wanting to release it for over a year, and with the advent of PHIVE since I’d last worked on it, there’s finally an easy way for me to securely distribute the PHP phar file which contains my tool. Getting this personal project out there is very satisfying.
Finally, I’m close to finishing a redesign of one client’s website. For this project, I’m moving from a WordPress setup to a site built with GravCMS. Using Grav is such a nice change of pace as all the content for the site is built from Markdown files. This striped down approach to building pages makes my work quick and a breath of fresh air as compared to working inside WordPress. This isn’t to say I’m ditching WordPress, but the change of pace is nice.
Currently racing against the clock. Will I make it in time?
Although I’ve used this script for years, it has taken a while for me to get it released for anyone to use. Check out SSHman – a #cli SSH Manager

Today has been like: ✅, ✅, ✅ as I work my way through my queue. So nice. I feel so productive.
Closed out the workday cleaning my office. There’s no telling what I’ll accomplish tomorrow. 😉
This brings back fond memories. (Nap time hijinks courtesy of my daughter.)
Tip: Having your code under source control (i.e. #git, #svn, etc) makes it so much easier to get back to speed on a project if you’ve been away from it for months or even years. 👨💻👩💻

Today I re-instituted one of my time-honored traditions: The midday run. Now back in the office, I estimate I’ll be back to normal operating temps by 5pm. It was blazing 🌶️ out there.
Oh the fun of climbing a tree.
Upon further reflection I’m with @gruber on this one. That Google Duplex demo seemed a little canned to me. I look forward to seeing/hearing it live someday. Daring Fireball: A Little Duplex Skepticism
It would be very easy to play this game and look like you’re working. 🙂 warriorjs
I spent this morning figuring out how to use PHIVE to securely distribute my #cli tool sshman (i.e. SSH manager). Use it to manage multiple SSH server connections via a text file in your $HOME directory.
I prefer sshman over trying to remember 20+ aliases I’d need to configure in
~/.ssh/config. In addition, sshman gives you the option of specifying a list of users to choose from when connecting to a particular server. You can check it out here: https://github.com/mwender/sshman
Wow, Google Duplex is so next level. Have you heard any of the demos? This conversational AI assistant sounds so real. Amazing.
