This just showed up at our local Trader Joe's. I usually favor complex assaulting IPAs but this is delicious in a clean, simple way: Nicely bitter, yet well-rounded, foamy, smooth, extremely refreshing, and the grapefruit is not overwhelming or silly. The danger is I may just drink the entire bottle right now.

If you're in Southern California and you ever step even a mile or two into the back country, please contribute to this. These people struggle to maintain the trails we take for granted.

Here's a little article I wrote for the O'Reilly programming blog.

Lessons learned from the trial and tribulation of writing my own TextMate language grammar (for editing AsciiDoc). The diagrams alone are worth the price of admission.

To appreciate what I'm up to here, you have to be a total nerd. Tools to make tools to make tools to make books.

Never never *never* believe physicists when they talk about math.

I gave #Flickr the boot!

After months of cringing at their horrible format changes, with no communication channel to provide feedback and no way to opt out, I finally did the only thing I could do: I took down all 2500 of my photos.

Oooh, I think I just managed to virtualize Snow Leopard Server under Mavericks using Virtual Box.

+Matt Neuburg , few of the things you mentioned are issues for me…
Removal of Rosetta: I keep my apps up-to-date. For my one-and-only app that is stuck in the past, I screen-share to my PowerPC mini.
Imposition of autosave: I have not found that to be a problem.
Automatic window restoration: I turned that "feature" off.
Auto termination: I have not found that to be a problem.
Sandboxing: I learned how to right-click-Open trusted apps.
The App Store and its walled garden: I have found it very convenient in finding new apps.
Invisible user Library: I made it visible. And of course in Mavericks it's no longer an issue.
Decline of AppleScript: I have not seen the decline, unless you are referring to the latest iWork apps. In that case, I agree.
And now (in Mavericks) busted Mail: Maybe I'm just lucky, but I never had that problem.
And a lot of stupid memory tricks that slow everything down: I've seen a few problems there, especially in Open and Save dialogs.
