Rabies Post-bite Treatment

Rationalization

It seems like everyone in Buenos Aires who owns a dog and lives in an apartment has a dog walker to take their dogs out every day. You constantly see dog walkers in the street with 10 or 20 dogs, all on separate leashes, walking around perfectly happily. Many more dogs that would be considered safe or responsibile for dog walkers in the US.

Break Bread Concert, December 11 at the Paramount

The Oakland Symphony Chorus is performing in the Oakland East Bay Symphony's annual Let Us Break Bread Together concert on Sunday, December 11, 4PM at the Paramount in Oakland.

This concert is a fun, cheesy, ecumenical holiday concert with a bunch of different vocal groups crammed together on stage. Joan Baez is guest starring (if she doesn't fall out of her treehouse again this year...)

Crockpot vs. Gas oven

Welcome back to the n of 1 institute.

In this episode we'll be comparing crock pot cooking with gas oven cooking. Specifically we'll be comparing my electric crock pot with my gas oven - so it's really an n of ME analysis! n of ME is even less useful than n of 1. Cool! We're going to aim at comparing carbon footprint, but will also touch on a straight comparison of "energy", and a price comparison.

OSC Workshop, Haydn Harmoinemesse, November 19

The Oakland Symphony Chorus is performing a recital of Haydn's Harmoniemesse on Saturday, November 19 at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland (on Lake Merritt) at 8PM.

It's a free concert. It's a recital for our annual workshop, so we will be larger and less-rehearsed than usual.

How to construct an atom feed id

The only human-readable reference ever on this topic is apparently only available on archive.org :(

Forced blocking in node.js

I've been trying to unnest some callbacks in a user registration validation routine. I keep failing because I fundamentally don't understand the relationship between callbacks and scope in Node.js yet (maybe in Javascript generally). So clearly I need to solve this nesting problem in order to actually know what I'm doing :)

The problem is that it's difficult to test - I have a number of validation functions chained together with callbacks and depending on how I screw up the non-nested code, validation fails in a variety of ways.

cck_ipaddr release 5.x-1.0

After 4 years of not even trying, I've finally made an official release of the cck_ipaddr utility module for the now EOL Drupal 5.

This was My First Drupal Module! It was fun to refactor very old code, and add a couple of features. My plan is to get it working in both D6 (which is necessary for a current project) and D7 (as a good intro to D7 fields) in the next few weeks. But maybe it'll take me another 4 years, who knows.
