Wrote this a couple of days ago. Thought I'd take it down because I wasn't sure about it, but now I'm pretty sure about it, so it's staying.

There are two follow-up posts and maybe another one coming today, or tomorrow.

When I was 12 years old I met the girl who would someday be my wife. She sat behind me in English class and, as best as I can recall, the first thing I ever said to her was “Fuck off.” I was a full year younger than anyone else in my class, and at least an extra year more immature than most of ...

I've known Jane for a couple of decades or three, and she has always been a pistol. Great to share her with the rest of the world.

When my wife was getting her masters degree I used LaTeX (via BBEdit) to format all her papers for her classes. The results were so good that the professors wanted to know how she'd done them. Seriously, you have no idea how bad a job Word does on a basic document until you see what LaTeX is capable of. The first time you see a LaTeX documenting footnotes, you will be tempted to delete Word from your machine.

And really, basic documents are super simple, no more complicated than markdown.

I have very little need for formatted documents, but when I need to do something like write an important letter, I do it in LaTeX just because the output is so much better looking, and I think people react to a beautifully rendered document even if they aren't concious of it.

TeX has a steep learning curve, so for your first paper you can add some days of toying around. But it gets easier with every assignment/paper and the commands become second nature. Once you see your references formatted almost by magic (BibTex), you'll never want to go back into the hell of Word. I also have my CV in TeX (with the europass template) in order to have the new European standard.

When I post to my blog, a note gets posted to Twitter and to Google+. Looking at the referrer data for the last month where I've made a new post every day, 96% of the referrers are from twitter and only 4% from Google+

This is the most popular of my posts so far:

Good Chinese buffet. Decent selection and priced quite well.

Ugh. I really hate this chain. They imitate Chipotle, but badly. There's no reason to ever go to a Qdoba, everything about it is inferior.

I love shopping here. The produce is very fresh and quite cheap, the meat selection is enormous and I can get things here I can't get at the regular supermarkets. And, it's fun. there's all sorts of interesting products you might see here (Latvian soft drinks, Mexican tamale flour, pig snouts, chicken feet, or fruit I've never seen before). Service is a little spotty as there are often language issues, but wandering the aisles is an adventure.

OK, so ther are hundreds of Chipotle restaurants now, but this is a chain that doesn't taste like a chain. The food is excellent, from the cilantro rice to both choices of beans, and every variety of meat. Oh, and the salsas are all excellent (I like the green tomatillo myself, but I will sometimes order any of them because they are all outstanding). The guacamole is fresh and very tasty and everything they use is as good as it can be. There is no better burrito in any restaurant, chain or no.

Do you want Chinese Buffet? Do you want a huge selection of dishes? Do you want sushi and shrimp? LD Buffet is, like most all buffets, not quite as good as a regular restaurant, but it's still pretty good and the fact you get to pick and choose--well, that's what makes buffet fun. Staff is very nice and is quick to refill drinks. Selection is huge. There are fresh oysters and crab legs at dinner, and there are some more authentic chinese choices then as well (mostly in the seafood variety).
