First Keto diet challenge met. Took Bridgett Steele's car to a detailer today and had to hang out at a coffee shop while the work was done. Job ran long and I needed lunch. Oh noes! Went to a pizza joint and ordered a grilled chicken ceasar salad. HUGE salad with two entire chicken breasts on top! Gracious. Dressing was on the side, so I dipped a bit each time, ate only 1 of the crouton squares, and had a nice low-carb lunch. Go me!

If Google can't keep their certificate shit in line, how can they expect anyone to do it! :-)

Use case #2, perl libraries, should be deployed as a package.  You can use something like dzil to help with the process of building a release package from your github repo.
This is mostly me thinking through some issues. I use git and GitHub a fair amount. Not enough, not deeply enough, but a fair amount. I understand Use Case #1, Compiled App, like RLangSyntax: code in ~/dev/Project; subdirs (test/, lib/, examples/, docs/, etc) and documentation, license and build ...

Keto Chow day two went pretty well. Woke up hungry, which is normal. My bg at breakfast (7:50AM) was 156, which is a bit higher than I like. Don't know why. Had lunch at 1:00PM and was hungry again by then. Bg was 128, much better. Was hungry again by 5:00PM when I left work. Had my supper meal at about 6:15PM and my Bg then was 64 (whoah, low!), but was not feeling the effect of it. I think I was seeing the last of the glucagon in my system getting used up. Stayed hungry after supper so I snacked on some beef jerky to try to take the edge off. Eventually the hungry's subsided.

I expect I'm starting into ketosis and the next few days will be rough while my body adjusts. Ordered a second flavor of Keto Chow, "Gourmet Vanilla". The "Rich Chocolate" is nice, and tastes very much like sugar-free dark chocolate pudding, but I can see myself getting tired of it day after day. So, we'll see what the vanilla version tastes like. There is also a Minty Chocolate and a Strawberry version, which I'll probably try at some point.

The strawberry version is quite good!

This is day one using Chris Bair's Keto Chow. I bought the "Rich Chocolate" variety and can say that it is definitely a richly chocolate flavor in the mouth. Unlike People Chow, KC is creamy, smooth, and thick like a smoothie. The gritty texture of People chow is entirely absent.
Keto Chow is a very low net carbohydrate meal replacement system that promotes ketosis like the Atkins or South Beach diets. I did well on South Beach in the past and hope that KC can help me lose the weight that needs to come off for me to get healthier.

Oh right. Yeah. Water oil and heavy cream. I'd have to plug in the numbers to see what I could do.

Thanks Justin!  I appreciate the support.  I need to make myself healthier and this is one way I can do that.  It takes less than 25 minutes to walk a mile, so why the hell not!  I'm aiming to get to doing a mile at lunch every day of the week.  Hopefully my back will stop seizing up as I get a bit more fit.

Had lunch here yesterday. I'm on a low-carb diet so I ordered the Grilled chicken ceasar salad. Wow! What a salad! Huge bowl of nicely cut romaine lettuce with croutons (forgot to ask for no croutons) and two entire grilled chicken breasts sliced up on top. The dressing came on the side and was quite good. The chicken was nicely cooked and very flavorful. I ate almost the entire thing, sans croutons, and came away well satiated! Would definitely eat here again.
