Moving to the east coast!

We are going to spend the summer (or at least most of it anyway) in PA and take weekend trips up north to find a place where we want to live. Right now, New Hampshire is at the top of our list but Maine and Massachusetts are under consideration as well.

Five people injured in natural gas explosion in NW Portland http://www.kptv.com/story/33427916/firefighters-respond-to-possible-gas-explosion-at-nw-portland Wed, 19 Oct 2016 18:23:00 +0000 https://48px.net/?p=1064 From KPTV:

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.

Introducing Retro https://48px.net/2016/09/14/introducing-retro/ Wed, 14 Sep 2016 17:53:27 +0000 https://48px.net/?p=987 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.
