Thanksgiving week note

2017-11-20 James Kerti

A quick update for Thanksgiving week.

Since my last post, the rainy season has come to the Oregon coast, as expected.

I’m learning R blogdown so that I can port this site over to that platform in the near future. After using WordPress for my personal site since 2009, I finally went static earlier this year, transitioning to pelican, a Python-powered static site generator. But as I’ve been more focused on learning R for data science, I’d like to (1) learn something new in R, and (2) integrate this site more tightly with that workflow so I can easily share data science projects here.

I can not recommend the Deebot N79 robotic vacuum highly enough. This thing is a wonder. I did most of the household vacuuming and tidying before. It’s saved me so much time and energy every week!

My town’s planning commission, of which I’m a commissioner, finished our review and update of the comprehensive plan last week. We’ve been working on it all year and got together for a special work session to marathon our way through it and finished it off. We have at least one spot coming open at the end of this year, so if you’re an interested local, consider submitting your name!
