Heard in the office today. Once the bar is raised, it’s frustrating not to hit it.

Bob Villa tours the McMillan Bloedel factory where they make Parallam, a neat glued laminate which super strong, but easier to work with than steel. Uses crappy wood too, which is great. See also these neat joists/rafters. I’m sure the glue will come back to haunt us, but it’s nice to see that people have […]
A few resources I’m finding useful in building a shed: A neat kit from Lee Valley, which includes a detailed plan for a basic shed, including a parts list, and hardware that should make attaching the roof trusses easy (I hope!), Also acquired at Lee Valley, a reprint of a classic book published by the […]

Google published a non-GPL encumbered version of diff/match/patch. I would have paid for that. I’m happy I don’t have to.

One of my first jobs was at a small startup called Neuron Data, a long, long time ago. This came to mind recently when looking at the Thrift whitepaper from Facebook. The address at the top of the facebook paper reads: Facebook, 156 University Ave, Palo Alto, CA That jogged my memory. Sure enough, a […]
