OK, this is awesome. Gravity Forms didn't port well, so I searched for help to get all the information ported from one location to my development site and found this: Export all the rg tables via phpMyAdmin and then imported them into the new DB. Worked like a charm. Thanks Nick Ciske!

105 exercise days in 2015!

I decided to create a new post rather than updating my previous post so I can have an updated image.

I also added up all the miles and got 368.75 miles hiked over the course of the year (+ 9.5 mi bike ride) Averaged out, it's a smidge over 1 mile a day. I'm pretty happy with this - but will look to beat it this coming year.

Here's the breakdown (mostly sharing for my own records):

January          7     -    20 mi
February        4     -    23 mi
March            8     -    35 mi
April              10    -    30.5 mi
May              11     -    37 mi
June               8     -    28 mi
July               12    -    42.5 mi
August            7    -    20.25 mi + 9.5 mi bike ride
September   10    -    33 mi
October        10    -    34.5 mi
November      7    -    25 mi
December    11    -    40 mi

Best month - July - second best, December - even with a week of being sick. Yay!

...and to check to see if a cron job has executed, this is the path:
/var/log/cron

Ok, now let's see if I can figure out why 2 of the 3 cron jobs one cPanel account has are running perfectly, and the third one is bunk. Wish me luck!

This is helpful for finding active cron jobs. They're all here:
/var/spool/cron/username

(username = cpanel name)

Saw this and thought: I'll bet actuaries are salivating to get ahold of this information if they don't already have access ...or their own AI.

And a link to another article about it: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3234292/The-supercomputer-predict-ll-DIE-Boston-researchers-reveal-supercomputer-say-96-accuracy.html

(+Gideon Rosenblatt - although this article and video are short, I thought you'd be interested in this story.)
A hospital in Boston is using artificial intelligence to revolutionise the way care is provided in its emergency department.

Conversely, you could make the argument that if the AI is indeed that accurate and competent, then maybe you don't need to see a physician and can self-diagnose and treat to a degree, which would be super convenient! And empowering.

My camera microphone seems to be broken so you can't hear what I said but you can definitely see how pressurized these delicious kefir mixes are. They just pop when I open the top!

These truly are the best kefir I've made so far. I'm now storing the second fermentation in pressurized bottles so I can enjoy their super-fizziness! This fizziness is what I wanted way back when I started. I guess I just didn't have the proper vessel to hold them in until now.

The tomato tastes less sweet than the pear version but both have an almost "beer" like taste. They're really yummy. I wish I could share digital samples!

I've had winters where I've shoveled more in one day than I have this entire winter so far. It's awesome!

Yay global warming!

103 exercise days this year - as of 12/28
(so far... still 1 week to go! I'll update this post at the end of the year.)

I took what +Bill Abrams did manually and kept track of my exercise dates digitally. (I had missed logging almost 20 days - but thanks to confirming exercise dates with my good friend and exercise buddy on Farceblarg, I was able to reclaim them. I may have missed logging a couple/few exercise dates with my husband, but it's close enough.)

Noteworthy
Worst month: February (4)
Best month: July (12)

These differences are definitely weather-related. I'll take what I do this year and look to beat it next year.

I'm actually a smart-phone hold-out. I work 70-80 hours on my computers each week - I need time away from technology - especially any that could draw me back into work even more, like a smart-phone can.

For me, something that's pretty minimal would be a good start. If it auto-keeps a record of my exercise days, I'm golden. I was considering the fitbit clip/pedometer dealie that's around $40, but haven't invested enough time to determine if that would suck or would be OK enough for me.

I'm trying my hand at a batch of homemade yogurt using raw milk and whey that I drained from other yogurt. (I wasn't about to waste the whey!)

I'm using the conventional oven method - but since my oven only goes down to 170, I got the oven up to that temperature then turned it off, put the milk/whey mixture in there and closed it up. I'll be checking in on it in about 10 - 13 hours.

Hope it works!

You don't have to stalk. I'm not very observant.

Do you want to make sure your WordPress site doesn't have any non-working shortcodes?

This is a nice snippet of code that you can either temporarily paste in your theme's functions.php file or like me, you can use the code to create a plugin that you can activate when you want to test a site for broken shortcodes.

This code will very quickly output all offending pages at the end of whatever site page you're viewing, complete with handy links to the offending pages. This makes it easy to click through and see any offending shortcodes so you may fix them.
If you recently changed your theme and used shortcodes from it or disabled plugins you maybe want to find all leftovers of them because they are not translated any more. You will find things like [shortcode attribute=”bla”] all over website. Obviously you don't want to review each post on your ...

If you have a WordPress site and have used custom post types built into a theme, and you'd like to still have access to those custom posts after updating your theme, this gem of a plugin is very helpful in getting you set up quickly!

I just used this plugin today on a client site who's theme was outdated and they had lost access to their WordPress back end. This allowed me to update their theme without losing access to their custom post types! Hallelujah!

Now, I just have to port some custom shortcodes and I'll be done!(I think!)

My husband and I have been going here for a number of years (7-8 years?) now and enjoy the food at Ming Bao. We have recently been enjoying the ability to try different combinations that aren't even on the menu. They're pleasant and very receptive to our crazy requests and always seem to do a very good job.

A nice quiet (small) place to meet friends & get tasty food. Pleasant and relatively quick service. Their sign out front was down when I first went here so it was hard to find. If you're not familiar with where they are, you may want to find it on Google maps and get a visual on the outside of the building. *Bonus:* I see they have the inside photographed on Google maps, so you can see what the place looks like on the inside as well before you go.

The "Please wait to be served" sign was off to the side, unseen by us when we entered, so we went to find a table and were scolded to wait to be seated. We walked back to the front door and they showed us to a small table that abutted the back of a booth which was fine until a party of 3 sat down and the back of a man's head was in my husband's face. Thankfully we could move to the next small table over, but between that, the static/tinny radio playing loudly from the speakers above, our breakfast sandwiches couldn't come soon enough. We waited for about 25 minutes to get the sandwiches. *They tasted good but not worth the wait or the loud surroundings.* I guess it would be OK if you have kids and you're used to having to be around loud kids and loud radio, but it wasn't for me. I won't be back. I tried this twice and both times were not enjoyable.
