Yesterday, February 8th was my 23rd birthday. I received ‘The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes‘ , a Bliptronic 5000 and a fantastic dinner from my girlfriend, Brit. I know of a few other gifts that should be arriving in the mail any day now… As a ‘gift’ to myself, I’m putting another $25 into Kiva.org for a cycle or two of lending. Check it out for yourself, Kiva is a great way to help people accomplish their goals without making them charity cases.
Finally, to celebrate; here is a wonderful performance of the birthday song by my dad.
PS Prepare yourselves, all ye who leave me phone messages.
PPS My blog was taken down for a few days due to a snafu in a configuration file and the fact that I was celebrating my birthday over the weekend.
I was worried for a bit that I’d lost everything. Thankfully fixing one line of code make everything work just fine again. Also, I recently signed up for an account with Backupify to backup my social media endeavors in case the worst happens. Things like this are also nice* wakeup calls for better routine db backups and maintenance.
