A couple weeks of bacon June 22, 2011 3:07 am

A few weeks back, I had the silly idea of making a lorem ipsum generator using types and cuts of meat instead of the standard Latin text. Some PHP code and a slightly modified WordPress theme later, Bacon Ipsum was born.

It went live on June 6th.  A few friends tweeted it, it got retweeted a few times and went viral a couple days later.  It even made it on Gizmodo.

It’s had 167k visitors since then and is still getting about 3-4k people a day.

Maybe I should make some t-shirts…  :)

I’ve been attending the Travis County Sheriff’s Citizens Academy and we had a class on building clearing a couple weeks ago. Part of the class was how to handcuff someone and the instructor needed a volunteer.

This was the first, and hopefully last, time that I’ve been handcuffed.
