Disclaimer: There is likely only one person on the planet who will find this funny. Hi!

So I found myself last night in a convertible with my wife driving and I thought to myself, “I know; I’ll write something”. And I began writing a screed on the use of the underlying Rails Migration commands that manipulate the state of your database. Rails has a number of these commands that, after MORE THAN A DECADE of daily rails programming, I’ve never bothered to use. I have known for a long time I need to master these and I finally have.

I finish up that post this morning and go to find it and publish it and a git status shows me nothing. Gulp. This just doesn’t happen to me. Scramble around looking for it – no love. Confirm that it actually exists in my editor and I didn’t just have a surreal “out of keyboard” experience – yep. It is there. And then it hits me – I have multiple blogs, one for nerd writing and one for recipes. Yep:

Moral of the story? Don’t tech blog where you food blog. Sigh.
