Diplomacy

I just finished listening to NoDumbQuestionsEpisode 53 – What Would Happen Every Time You Restarted Earth? I have to say, the discussion definitely got me onto two things which I briefly mentioned in my comment on Reddit (I don’t know if my thoughts will take off at this point, but I wanted to put them out there).

The Zone

Have I ever been here? Probably. I cannot recall a specific time I have been fully “In the Zone” as it were, but I know that I was close a week or two ago while working on finalizing a project for work.

Based on Manish Sinha’s definition of this state of mind, I cannot actually say that I have been 100% disconnected, with my hands on autopilot and my brain in full-logic mode. There is always some portion of me weighing this or that, examining bits of code to figure out problems, that sort of thing. It’s not really a zen experience where I am “one with the code.”

Christmas Again

So I guess I could say Merry Christmas. Then again, I WANT to say, “Hey it’s that time of year where I break out my Christmas theme for a blog!” I haven’t done this in a long while, and given that I’ve moved over to WordPress, I wonder if it’s possible.

Stay tuned for theme-like edits in the next day or two. As soon as I find time to break out my old copy of Photoshop and a few stupid photos of myself which I may already have somewhere on this server, I’ll drop in a new banner image of some sort!

Blogger Migration

So you may be wondering: what’s up with all these blog redesigns, Daniel?

Well, I got sick of Blogger. A whole lot. And about a month ago, I decided to do something about it.
