Ugh, the modern world of forums is a real pain in the rear. I'm looking to start a new (small) forum for disc golf technique and instruction. XenForo (I use this elsewhere) hasn't seen an update since March. phpBB and MyBB are small and have hideous themes. Vanilla Forum charges a lot and their host-it-yourself [...]

I'm developing a small site for someone and I've already hacked together a custom widget to show recent posts on every page of the site (the "blog" is more of a "news" thing while the main site uses pages), but I haven't yet found a good solution for an "Upcoming Events" widget. If it were [...]
My blog is now ten years old. It all started with my first post, which was "I Hate Perl" on this day in 2002. Why did I write that? Because at the time the blog was a MoveableType blog, which was written in Perl. Happy Blogiversary.
I like the camera angles in this one:

A Sporting Life has named The Sand Trap one of the five best golf blogs on the Intertubes. We agree! Thanks to A Sporting Life for the recognition. We appreciate it!
I've lagged behind yet again. Several half-written posts, but I'll catch up again with mostly filler. When I do catch up I'm seriously considering ditching this theme for one of the standard themes. This one isn't fully widgetized or anything, so it might be nice to be able to use some of the cooler features [...]
So, when you delete a direct message, the recipient: Gets an email if they have that option enabled. Gets the direct message in any apps that they have open at the time. And that's it.
I have fallen behind again on my blogging, so I'm going to post a bunch of quotes as filler material. Sorry! I have a post to write today about the WWDC Keynote that I want to get out there and not have it show up in three weeks when I catch up.
I'm behind again on blogging. I have about 75% of the days filled with stubs right now, some half written, some more. I'll get to them eventually.
I take back my post yesterday. They're REALLY dumb.
Aha! I've finally figured out why MarsEdit will sometimes post something as "today" when I change the date to a few days ago.
