It may not be the hottest joint in town, but my God if I didn’t learn why La Folie is a 30 year old institution in SF. The BEST meal I’ve ever had was five courses of Dungeness crab, butter poached lobster, mushroom & lobster risotto, and a transcendent 4oz of Miyazaki A5 Wagyu. (+ a very respectable chocolate ganache to close out the evening) If you love food, I can’t recommend this spot enough. #food #sf

PHP Sessions with AWS DynamoDB (SDK v3)

Lately, I’ve been undertaking a large-scale, back-office project to support our growing operations teams at Plastiq. The application started experiencing some hanging, which ended up being caused by native PHP session handling.

Innocence

In my dreams I can still love you.
I can forget the things we did to each other.

And fate hasn’t yet begun to conspire

when it’s not merely
the sound of your voice
or the brush of your hand
that quickens my soul so.

But the shape of the letters
that form your sweet name –
meaningless in any other form.

I’ve studied their curves.
Taken comfort in their lines.
Written them in permanent ink
on the very folds of my being.
