She laughed in my face, told me good-bye. Said, “Don’t think about it, you can go crazy. Anything can happen, anything can end. Don’t try to fight it, don’t try to save me”

Masters broadcast perfection

story posted Thursday, April 11th, 2019 01:05 pm GMT -5

People have said a lot of thing about the Masters over the years, but the ability to follow Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia for their entire first round in HD on my AppleTV with no commercials, announcers that don’t scream and silence the majority of the broadcast (aside from the birds chirping) is about as good as sports TV gets, in my opinion. Add in a work-from-home snow day blizzard outside (with wife and daughter safely inside) + hot pizza from across the street + new levels in Two Dots = my favorite day in weeks.

My wallet is now permanently closed for all Yondr events

Thirteen Years of Publishing

story posted Saturday, March 30th, 2019 01:15 pm GMT -5

It’s that time of year again – the first 7minutemiles.com post appeared on this domain thirteen years ago today.

Current stats:

  • 10,066 Posts
  • 204 Pages
  • 383 Comments (which are now turned off)
  • 54,914 unique visitors in 2018
  • 1,687,856 pages displayed in 2018

Still running WordPress (currently 5.1.1) with my custom theme and 17 plugins on the old Mac mini server colocated in Las Vegas. Favorite plugins: Wordfence Security, VaultPress, Intagrate and Really Simple SSL. Yes, I finally made the move this year to SSL using Let’s Encrypt, Certbot and that SSL plugin. I experimented with some form plugins for data entry on the golf, run and bike pages, but I didn’t like any of them. Planning to just write some custom code when I find the time. I’ve also given up on using a plugin to make the site more mobile-friendly, so at some point I’ll just have to learn the design and coding techniques to deal with that using my existing theme.

The old Tapemark Charity Pro-Am online leaderboards have a historical home now here. We had a new foodie join our team at the stadium, so I created a food page to summarize some of my favorite places in Minnesota. My upcoming races, concerts and sporting events are now displayed in the home page footer (and stored in a new database). The Biography and Résumé pages have some small updates. Video and photos still need a lot of love in the coming months and the mysterious SSL/emoji issue still needs resolution…

As always, thanks for visiting!

Onward to 3000
