So… I have an announcement to make. At the end of June, Miranda and I will be…

Moving to the east coast!

We are going to spend the summer (or at least most of it anyway) in PA and take weekend trips up north to find a place where we want to live. Right now, New Hampshire is at the top of our list but Maine and Massachusetts are under consideration as well.

SO. EXCITED.

From ZURB:

Holiday season has arrived and that usually means one thing’ more gifts than you can shake a handlebar mustache at! The Foundation team, Yetinauts, and a whole lotta contributors have been hard at work on a huge update to Foundation that is stuffed to the brim with new goodies you’re going to go nuts for. The best part? It’s available for you to download today, whether you’ve been naughty or nice. You don’t need to shake the box, we’ll tell you exactly what’s inside:

Visit their post for all of the details. I’ll be updating my sites and the Retro theme to use it soon.

From WordPress:

Version 4.7 of WordPress, named “Vaughan” in honor of legendary jazz vocalist Sarah “Sassy” Vaughan, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.7 help you get your site set up the way you want it.

Go to your site’s admin area and update!

From KPTV:

Firefighters responded to Northwest 23rd Avenue and Glisan Street at around 9 a.m. Wednesday. 

A large cloud of smoke filled the air and could be seen for miles.

A NW Natural spokesperson said a contractor hit a gas line, causing a leak.

After firefighters and NW Natural crews arrived at the scene and evacuated the building, the gas ignited and there was an explosion.

Scary stuff on NW 23rd this morning. This could’ve been much, much worse and I’m glad it wasn’t.

Say hello to Retro, a modern take on a classic WordPress theme.

Retro

For those of you who have been in the WordPress world a while, Retro should look familiar. It’s look is heavily borrowed from Kubrick, which was the default WordPress theme from 2006-2010.

Kubrick has always been one of my favorite themes, and back when this site was soupnazi.org, it ran a modified version of it for a long time. So, when I sat down a month ago or so to build a new theme, I decided to recreate it and bring it up-to-date. This site is running a child theme of Retro right now.

You can learn more about Retro, see a demo, follow development, and download the theme over at the Retro theme page.
