And by the title, what I mean is that I walked over the Scalp, summited the mighty Carrickgollogan, visited the ruined earthenworks of Ballycorus, and thence descended to Cherrywood. The walk was straightforward (some bits up, other bits down), the weather unpredictable, and my thoughts strange. Eadaoin and I are in the middle of a […]
:3 After last night spent with Jennifer, I had lunch with mum in Galway, then wandered the city for the evening. The weather was glorious. I miss Galway, I miss home.
I spent Saturday night with Jennifer in Loughrea, although I almost had to walk a chunk of the way. On Saturday I decided to work in the morning and leave at three. Problem is I forgot about the bloody Bus Éireann strike, so I barely made it onto the last bus out of town. It […]
Taken at Blackrock, Dublin.
Photographed on my hike today. I was surprised when this photograph came out, let alone perfectly, because the wind blew me flat on my ass as I finished the capture.
I couldn’t get my head straight on Tuesday so I went to look at the sea instead.
The day was too much, so I climbed a hill and decided to be for a while.

The struggle is real.
“No Cookie! Feet are friends, not food! Feet are not for teeth!”
Routing concerns have been a thing since Rails 4, but this morning I ran into a real annoyance: the documentation doesn’t adequately explain how to pass a module, in cases where you use separate sub-controllers. More than that, even-what if I want to pass any other options? Here’s what I came up with, using splats […]

This is a stupid fucking thing, akin to Googling basic syntax for your language, but here we are. My underling and I wasted 40 minutes today re-figuring this out. Migration: class PluralSingular < ActiveRecord::Migration[5.0] create_join_table :plural, :plural end Model: app/model/foo.rb class Foo < ApplicationRecord has_many :plural_singular has_many :plural, through: :plural_singular end Join model: app/model/plural_singular.rb class […]
Taken at Blackrock Park.
Time’s an arrow, one way, here to there, that you can’t turn back. Because that’d be nonsensical, to undo what makes you, you.
Listos version: Lots happened, more yet to come. Stay tuned.
