Deck garden success! Cayennes galore, sweet peas in bloom, catnip mountain, and one baby Hungarian pepper.

Also one very flat cat.

Someone (not me) spilled a bunch of red pepper flakes in my kitchen. As I was cleaning them up I started sneezing and one of my cats (Gizmo) started sneezing. The other cat tried to eat them. WTF cat.

That is more or less exactly what I would do.

Snorkeling Attempt 2: Success! I saw fishes and corals. It looked like a tank at the aquarium but waaay bigger. 
Lessons Learned:
1) My instinct to immediately blow all my air out my nose does not help.
2) Fins are amazing. 
3) Listening to Ryan is helpful.
4) Being further out from the shore is easier than being near shore where the waves break.
5) Breathing deliberately and keeping my lungs full helps me float and stay calm.
6) I don't know how to dive and I look like a doof when I try. 
7) When you cut yourself in salt water it doesn't hurt until you get out. Water temperature doesn't seem to matter (I knew this from swimming in puget sound but I thought it was because the water is cold).

If you run rails there's some security patches out. Upgrade to 3.2.16 or 4.0.2.

If you run rails for something important you should probably be on this mailing list:

State Farm got good reviews locally so I contacted them and their quote is 60% of liberty mutual's. I'll probably go with them.

2) how can I forward my mail from knuth to something like gmail?

When I was there it was Turing. :-) Ada would have been better. Much easier to type.

And Erica took that one. At least factories can make new instances.

I'm going to Mountain West Ruby Conf in Salt Lake next week and I'm looking for ski buddies on Sat Mar 22. Do I know anyone there?

Missed the submission deadline for my Coursera homework by 1 minute because my code was buggy.

I forgot that octave starts indexing arrays at 1 not 0. GRRRR!!!

On happier note my homework is taking less and less time as the course goes on. I could have finished earlier tonight if I hadn't dorked around for 15 minutes looking for an octave equivalent of index_of. I must remember that for this course doing the obvious thing is usually sufficient.

If it starts indexing at 1 and you were 1 minute late, I'd argue that you were on time.
