Kad es šorīt izgāju pie savas automašīnas, mani uzreiz apmētāja jauka ledus vētra. Iedomājieties lietu, kas vienkārši sasalusi. Man nācās uzlauzt ledus čaumalu manai automašīnai (Ford 500) un pēc tam notīrīt apmēram 10 collas sniega, kas nokrita vakar vakarā. Bērni bija mājās - skola tika atcelta. Es to panācu, lai tas darbotos bez lielām problēmām (paldies dievam par AWD).
I hiked the 4 blocks to work through the snow and was pretty much exhausted (yea, I know… lose weight!). At work, a nice arrangement of bagels and fruit awaited the brave few who made it in. On a floor with 30+ other people, I think I was one of 6 that made it to the office. I live South of Indianapolis and the Northside was really beaten up bad! And tonight there's a repeat:

Indianapolisa ir skaista pilsēta, kad snieg. Arhitektūra un pieminekļi izskatās neticami, jo tiem smalki pieķeras sniegs. Es vēlētos, lai šodien es būtu varējis staigāt apkārt ar kameru ... bet bija darāms darbs.
Work was a real challenge. I spent the day on Instant Messenger and the phone. We've got an engaged team of professionals that are starting to build momentum on a great release for early next year. Not having others to bounce ideas and commentary off of really made it tough to be productive, so I buried myself in documents and did some prototyping.
Brauciens mājās bija diezgan kluss. Kad ielas bija tukšas, es nolēmu paņemt savu dēlu, Krists, out to get some experience driving in the snow. We found a great empty lot with over a foot of snow and I had him do some donuts, loss of control practice, sliding and quick braking… he was pretty amazed at how the car handled it (as was I)… antilock brakes, traction control, and all wheel drive really do provide so much more control. It's amazing. He practiced for about 30 minutes and then we left just in case someone called the police and thought we were messing around.
Mēs apstājāmies uz ātrām vakariņām, un es atgriezos mājās un sāku spēlēt ar dažiem PHP un Technorati's API. Some of the code samples haven't been touched in years on their site (hint, hint). With PHP5's handling of XML inherent, I hope that someone does some updating soon. I wrote some code but couldn't actually get valid responses via PHP… so now I'm frustrated and calling it a night. I don't believe it's their API… I can cut and paste my request in the browser with no issues.
My hope is to build a nice widget that provides a profile of a blog… the ranking, latest posts, tag cloud, etc. so that it's easy to either post it on your own blog or look up someone elses. I'll get there, but I'm calling it a night. Sorry this isn't a more helpful post! I'll get back on track soon!
I'm going to get some sleep for the hike tomorrow!
