Firefighters responded to Northwest 23rd Avenue and Glisan Street at around 9 a.m. Wednesday.
A large cloud of smoke filled the air and could be seen for miles.
A NW Natural spokesperson said a contractor hit a gas line, causing a leak.
After firefighters and NW Natural crews arrived at the scene and evacuated the building, the gas ignited and there was an explosion.
Scary stuff on NW 23rd this morning. This could’ve been much, much worse and I’m glad it wasn’t.

From The Ringer:
But here is the painful reality. As truly awful as Hillary Clinton is, Donald Trump is far, FAR worse. It is not even close. Trump is a clear and present danger to our republic. And no matter how deep and abiding your mistrust is of Hillary, you cannot pull the lever for Trump. Let a charter member of the vast, right-wing anti-Clinton conspiracy convince you.
More conservatives pleading for their fellow party members to not vote for Trump.
If you’re thinking about voting for Trump or are still a Bernie holdout stubbornly refusing to vote for Hillary (Bernie isn’t happening kids, stop throwing your tantrums and get over it), read this.

From The Arizona Republic:
Since The Arizona Republic began publication in 1890, we have never endorsed a Democrat over a Republican for president. Never. This reflects a deep philosophical appreciation for conservative ideals and Republican principles.
This year is different.
Leave it to a conservative paper to lay out the reasons why voting for Trump–their party’s nominee–is a horrible idea.

This is something that an actual human said. If you want to be pissed off and/or terrified at the possibility of Cap’n Tiny Hands McOrangeface being elected and see what other equally stupid people have to say, go watch the entire video, but don’t say I didn’t warn you first.

Deric Lostutter — the Anonymous-affiliated hacker who helped expose the violent rape of an underage girl in Steubenville, Ohio — pled not guilty Wednesday to four felony counts of hacking. He now faces a federal trial and up to 16 years in prison; the rapists he exposed now walk free. Lostutter’s one week trial will begin on November 8th.
Jesus fucking Christ 😡

I just uploaded v1.0.2 that fixes a couple of styles and makes the theme pass the WordPress Theme Test. I’ll be submitting it to the theme directory and pushing it up to Github this weekend.
You can find out more about what’s changed and more about the theme on the Retro theme project page.

Say hello to Retro, a modern take on a classic WordPress theme.
For those of you who have been in the WordPress world a while, Retro should look familiar. It’s look is heavily borrowed from Kubrick, which was the default WordPress theme from 2006-2010.
Kubrick has always been one of my favorite themes, and back when this site was soupnazi.org, it ran a modified version of it for a long time. So, when I sat down a month ago or so to build a new theme, I decided to recreate it and bring it up-to-date. This site is running a child theme of Retro right now.
You can learn more about Retro, see a demo, follow development, and download the theme over at the Retro theme page.

Sometimes, change is unexpected. More often than not, change sneaks in until it feels grand and inevitable. Gradually, and then suddenly. iOS users have lived through numerous tides of such changes over the past three years.
As always, Federico Viticci at MacStories hits it out of the park with his yearly iOS review.

I just switched to a new theme that I built. I wrote a long post earlier this week covering my thought process behind it and some features that I added, and then… I lost the post.
It wasn’t WordPress’ fault, I wrote it in markdown in Textastic on my iPad and thought I saved it to iCloud. It turns out I didn’t–I saved it locally. And of course that was when the iOS 10 GM was released and when I did a clean install, I lost the post.
Anyway, I’ll write up another post about the new theme in the near future. I’ll also be releasing the theme for download, so keep an eye out for the post. Now would be a good time to subscribe to my posts :)
As always, please let me know if you run into any problems.
