I find it remarkable, at this point, how drawing for him still has nothing to do with the results. He does not care what you do with his drawings after he’s done making them. How he draws is intense and adorable at the same time: he will put down a few lines, and then stand back and shake while he admires them.
I feel like I’ve written about this before - can’t remember whether it was here or not, but when trillion-dollar companies complain that things are “hard”, what they really mean is that they “do not want to do them” or that they are “not that important”, or perhaps more tellingly, that “there is no [perceived] profit in doing it”. Because, lest we forget, Google is a company that went from zero to having a gigantic fleet of sensor-laden cars driving around every single road in as many countries as they could, just so you could look at shops and the less said about having more data to sell ads against, the better.

Four hours of Tiller rental from Home Depot.
850 pounds of sand.
2220 pounds of pavers.
1 ton of pea gravel (almost).
1 fire pit.
My wife and I have spent the last couple weekends removing grass and earth and laying weed fabric, laying sand, leveling sand, laying pavers, re-laying pavers, and spreading pea gravel.

I’ve been going back and forth with Dreamhost about the amount of memory my sites have been using. I was able to get things under control this week and asked support if they had any recommendations for ways I could keep tabs on the amount of memory my sites were using.
Since I’m on a shared hosting plan, I can’t control the server. But Conor from Dreamhost Support was able to point me to this plugin.
Once installed, it sits on the WordPress dashboard and keeps me updated with how much space my site is using as well as the total memory allowed and what it’s currently using. It’s a nice way to keep tabs on memory usage.

IE6 users represented around 18% of our user base at that point. We understood that we could not just drop support for it. However, sitting in that cafeteria, having only slept about a few hours each in the previous days, our compassion for these users had completely eroded away. We began collectively fantasizing about how we could exact our revenge on IE6. One idea rose to the surface that quickly captured everyone’s attention. Instead of outright dropping IE6 support, what if we just threatened to?
