Musings

This, the third installment of my photobucket series is a hodgepodge collage of random photos from my adventures in Japan. Most speak for themselves - others have a backstory. It has been a while since my last substantial blog post but I have been keeping busy doing some under the hood tuning of the backend of Fallfish Tenkara. To name a few of the things that have been taking up a lot of my time lately: HTTP/2, DNS, CDN, caches, themes, JS, CSS, Brainfu#* (link is probably NSFW FYI), Apache, droplets, VPS, SSH, SFTP, permissions, WP, and AWS.

In other news the Sierra Nevada is getting hammered with storm after storm, which is good because California really needs the water. Of course I am a little jealous, winter is just getting started here in Japan (at least Honshu Island - Hokkaido has been absolutely slammed with snow in the last month or so). I will be headed up to Hokkaido for the Sapporo Snow Festival in February. Looking forward to that trip!

Also, in case you missed it (and read this far) the latest issue of Tenkara Angler published on December 1. Yours truly wrote a piece titled "The Theology of Tenkara, Trout, and Japan". Check it out! Link here
