Kentucky Route Zero Act IV has FINALLY been released.

After a long wait +Cardboard Computer has finally given us the much anticipated Kentucky Route Zero Act IV. To anyone not in the know KR0 is a point and click adventure game with a very chill and relaxing vibe. You can just sit back and absorb it after work or before you go to bed. Though, to be honest, calling it just a game falls a bit short. KR0 is really more of an experience than just a game. You'll really find yourself taking in the atmosphere and feeling for the characters and story. If you haven't already, I highly recommend picking up a copy for yourself, you wont regret it, plus, we still have Act V to look forward to.

Did a short hike up A Mountain with the family this morning. I wish I didn't have to wake up early to avoid the heat because now I just want to go back to sleep.

Today I wanted to share a small personal accomplishment:

While working on a project at work it was necessary to interface with the Okta API for user authentication and authorization. To accomplish this I created, an independent PHP client library. As it stood there were no official (http://developer.okta.com/docs/sdk/core/api.html) or unofficial PHP libraries available for working with the Okta API and I felt it would be beneficial to the community, as well as my employer, to publish this library as an open source project on the company GitHub account. So I talked to some people, sent some emails and ultimately got the legal department to okay it.

Thus, I am happy to present OktaSDK-PHP, a PHP client library for the Okta (v1) API.

So I finally got a food processor this weekend and the first thing I decided to make with it was pesto. I then turned that into a pesto parmesan cream sauce that I tossed with some ravioli and steamed broccoli. In the end I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

Delicious food, decent prices, great service. Only complaint is that the place is a little small for how busy they can get during the lunch hour peak.

Burger was alright but not worth $10. Similarly the side of grilled veggies was not worth $3. If you want a good burger go someplace else.
