Today I'm moving for the 25th time in 29 years. 2nd floor, 2nd loft, 1st place with concrete floors, 4th house I've lived alone, 1st in San Francisco, 1st in SOMA, 4 blocks from the office, 4 blocks from the Bay, braced by I-80, Folsom, Harrison, First and an off-ramp. Pretty flash view at night--look up to see the closest thing SF has to a Tokyoesque skyline, look down to see tranny hookers urinating in front of the Mexican Consulate.
Best feature: a few doors down a neighbor in a lonely remaining victorian crowded by a pair of massive concrete condo buildings with a well-worn stuffed dog permanently on watch in the front window.

There are things you know, things you know you don't know, but it's the things you don't know you don't know that are probably the most interesting. You know?
Senator Russ Feingold finally came out and said it. 2008? Bueller?
Closure is an elusive quarry, maddeningly taunting you just far enough out of reach. Fuck, some days are hard.
Nick asked me today if there was a way to just reload the stylesheets without having to reload the whole page, which can be frustrating for AJAX development. I hacked at it for a bit and stuck it on our development environment, then cleaned it up into a bookmarklet. Drag the following link to your toolbar for CSS reloading happiness & superior quality.
Update: Fixed it to work in Internet Explorer.* Turns out the original code was doing too much work, adding/removing
link elements. The new code simply replaces the
href attribute with a randomized value.
* Once. It crashes on the 2nd time, at least in IE6 SP2.
