After reading the Productive Programmer, I was inspired to write a custom script to add Symfony menus to my Emacs editor. After some frustration (I find emacs LISP tough to grok), I finally figured it out. (script is below) Anyway, here are a couple of pictures...

I spent some time this afternoon speaking with various solar installers at the GoSolarSF fair at the Eureka Valley rec center. To say the fair was crowded would be an understatement. I wasn't able to speak to most of the installers--the crowds were too deep....

Here is an interesting event coming up next year. I'm not sure to what extent it will interest life coaches, but the form to receive updates mentions coaching services....
