My company is hiring a front end dev. We have a laid-back culture, but the learning curve is about like rocket science. I can highly suggest working here, provided you are a good cultural fit.
Your corporate job is boring you to tears but it's a stable paycheck... You've done the start-up and had a blast but it left you broke. Well, we're the best of both worlds. 7 Simple Machines...

And then there's the location....
All those blasted Kenmore Air takeoffs, and being the first to know when the 12's flag is flying atop the Needle. That does not suck!

Uh, Chrome, I'll try to put this gently... you've gotten a little, you know, portly. Round in the middle. Okay, you're bloated and heavy.

There is no reason for Chrome to be consuming 80% of a Core i7 when not doing anything on my computer. Come on, Google, get this under control.

Survey and sea trial (test drive) passed with flying colors. Sails like it's on a mission when on a close reach.

That's because "you tell me do things I done do and den..." wouldn't fit.

I have noticed that my most brutal barbecue sauces, mixed in the morning and able to peel paint off bricks, were completely edible to spice wimps by lunch time. I have long wondered why putting them in plastic containers resulted in this. Science!
When you get your wine from a box, you know you're not getting the best quality. And that's not just because of appearances. Certain materials cause a process called "flavor scalping," which draws certain chemicals right out of the food.

Our offer on a boat has been accepted! We are moving onto a boat! The purge of belongings has begun.

Plus, it's called "Honu," which is just about perfect for us!

Why do web designers implement a password field wherein text cannot be pasted? Is this some "oooh, we're being really slick with the JS" thing? I have run across this a few times and this design choice makes no sense to me. Please, someone explain the (il)logic.

Oh, you mean the people who use the same password for everything and always fall for the phishing attempt during the annual social engineering audit?

Depending on the bike, for me it is about 4.5 to 6.5 miles before street clothes cause chafing. What's your break-even commute distance for wearing cycling shorts?

I think we have some heroic commuters.

My commute is about to drop from 16 to 6 miles and it's right on that annoying cusp.

Bittersweet day. Last day of owning my smoker and grill. It's going to my buddy since it can't come on the boat. But there's three racks of ribs and rib tips for the sendoff.

I installed one of these on a 1976 Peugeot UX-10. It was a seriously good bottom bracket that felt on par with the Shimano UN-55. I have since used other VO BB's on other bikes and continue to be very impressed with their quality, especially when cost is considered.

"I've always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can't afford it."

What these men can't afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of security. And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone. What does a man need - really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in - and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That's all - in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade. The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed. Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. –Sterling Hayden (emphasis mine)

I think I secretly, subconsciously sell things on Craigslist so that I can go all Waldorf and Statler on the idiots that reply.

On a $400 bike with easily $1000 in components: "What is the length of the seat stays? What is the fork rake? What is the head tube angle? I really need to know these things... Please measure them for me!" "Does it have rack and fender braze-ons?" (The pictures clearly show there are no rack braze-ons.)

On a screaming deal on a lot of Transformers: "Can you deliver them to [east bumfuck]?" No. "Not ever?" No. "Are you sure there's no chance?" Hmm, let me double-check that for you. Still no.

How about the classic: "My 11 year old kid just started doing X and would love your state-of-the-art professional equipment, but I can't afford much, would you take [some pathetically low amount]?"

Don't call me at work. I will rain vitriol and dirty looks down upon you. Through the phone.
Good service, good sweet potato fries and maduros. Really lame Cubano and Mai Tai. Couldn't even bother to finish them. The Mai Tai tasted like a sugar bomb of cheap fruit juice; there may have been a bottle of alcohol in the same room when it was made. The Cubano was made with dried out, bland pork, bland ham, tasteless Swiss cheese, a scant smattering of bland diced pickles, and yellow mustard (?!)(did you just pick the cheapest ingredients possible and hope nobody would notice?). At least the sandwich was pressed thin. But that's all that can be said for it.

Fair pizza, great service. The pizza reminds me a Pizza Hut pan pizza, but made with much better ingredients. Crust could have been more crispy; it was a touch underdone.

Excellent delivery service, excellent phone ordering process, superlative crust on par with some of the best in Portland, which are on par with NYC pizza. Middling sauce, lame cheese, poor choice of topping ingredients... these detract from an otherwise amazing crust. Their crust is so damn good that it overrides the low-quality toppings. I will still order from them again and did I mention their service is top notch? Glad these guys are nearby but I wish they would upgrade their sauce and cheese. Decor above is actually an N/A since I ordered delivery, but I didn't want to ding them for something I didn't experience.

Amazing food. The Cubano is the best I have had anywhere. Don't miss the fried plantains. Perfect combination of crispy and tender, and the aioli is good enough to eat with a spoon. So far, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The atmosphere is like a cafe with emphasis on the food. My only "complaint" is that I wished I lived closer.
