+Stan Sorochan Portland has a lot of amazing stuff, but unfortunately the bike-friendliness the city is known for does not extend to mountain biking.  One has to go a minimum of about an hour out of the city before you start getting into any trail awesomness.  Far cry from Knoxville, which has quite a volume of legit mountain biking right within the city limits.

I don't know if I'm supposed to applaud or have nightmares.   This is awesome. 
We were warned this would happen. Back in December, Tesla Motors Tweeter-in-Chief Elon Musk revealed that his electric-car company was working on an automated charging plug. Btw, we are actually working on a charger that automatically moves out from the wall & connects like a solid metal snake. For realz. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December […]

The simple fact of the EcoBoost engines being "turbo" doesn't mean that a turbocharged engine can't hit its EPA numbers in the real world, though I'll admit turbo engines do indeed need to be driven gingerly to stay out of the boost.   However, that being said, I took the same 500-mile road trip in 18 different kinds of cars (rentals, trips were for work) some turbo, some not, and cataloged the mileage I got:
http://www.jetteroheller.com/rental-car-review-gas-mileage-comparison/
I had 2 different Ford Fusion 2.0T EcoBoosts, neither of which (even when driven EXTREMELY gingerly) could come close to their advertised economy - my best tank was 26.2mpg, vs the 33mpg hwy I was meant to get.
4 other turbos I drove on the same route (Subaru WRX, Cadillac ATS 2.0T, Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T, Mercedes C250 1.8T) were able to meet or exceed their EPA numbers. So, something's fishy about how Ford is rating these, indicating they're calibrating their powertrains JUST to get nice EPA numbers, or perhaps only to get nice EPA hwy numbers at 55mph only.

While I do chores and pregomommy sleeps, the daughter is blasting the +Star Wars soundtrack on +Spotify & making Star Wars finger puppets. Not sure a more wholesome Sunday morning is possible.

Story
Tagline
I'm a Maine-native, a Linux Systems Engineer, a father of 2 adorable munchkins, mountain biker, soccer player and outdoors lover. I blog a lot, take a lot of photos, I don't have a TV, preferring instead to spend time with my awesome wife & kids.
Introduction

I am a System & Cloud Platform Engineer and team lead, having worked as a hands-on engineer, team lead and as a project manager for multiple large-scale websites. My recent focus has been on large-scale content-driven websites based on Adobe CQ (AEM), working to implement infrastructure automation, continuous delivery pipelines, and support & monitoring systems to back it up.

I started my career in technology in 1994, and have worked hands-on in virtually every facet of website delivery, as a designer, UX architect, developer, system architect/administrator, team lead and as a product director overseeing the full technology lifecycle.

I have a passion for analytics and tools to extract & visualize actionable insights out of machine data. It started for me when I was a support & implementation engineer for Webtrends, and has continued through modern tools like Splunk and New Relic. I feel that with the right such tools, developers, system engineers, and business folks can rapidly get on the same page.

Education
  • The Delphian School
  • Oregon State University
Took the White Rock Falls trail from the parking lot on the Blue Ridge Parkway, a trail which likely /should/ have been marked "no bikes". MTB'ing down to the falls was easy, but the road back up took me up a sheer cliff face. But the view was outstanding!

Dr. Seifi has been my dentist for the last 12 years. Mostly just have gotten regular cleanings (less regular than I should, admittedly) and find her staff to always be expert, quick, and with excellent communication about what's going on with me dentally and what I need to do to keep myself in good health. I've also taken both of my kids there (2 and 4 years old) for their first dental check-ups and cleanings and (shockingly) they both loved it. And I think that says something about the level of care the folks in the office have.

Reasons to eat here rather than the Chipotle across the street: (a) The line is ALWAYS 5X shorter than Chipotle's line during lunch hour (b) The wall of fire - choice of 50+ different hot sauces means each meal has built-in flavor variation (c) Many more burrito choices than Chipotle. My favorite is the Blackened Chicken Ceasar.

Extremely impressed with the new Church of Scientology on 16th St. Beautiful inside and out, and tons of folks there who are extremely driven to help the community.

Chinatown Coffee has easily the best coffee of any coffee shop I've been to in the DC Metro area. French Press coffee is fantastic. This place is legit.

This school gave me a fantastic jump on my further education. In fact, after trying it out for a semester, I literally demanded my parents move from Connecticut up to the Boston area specifically so I could attend this school, and in retrospect, this was one of the best decisions they ever made.

I cannot recommend the burgers here highly enough. As someone who's spent plenty of time at Five Guys, In-n-Out, Fuddruckers, Fatburger, and every other good burger joint out there, I have got to say that this place blows them away. I just had an amazing, life-changing, epiphany-inducing hamburger. Blam! Would recommend Ray's Hell Burger to anyone who anyone who's actually serious about having a good hamburger.
