Rode Muni to UCSF Parnassus. Breakfast at Palio: scrambled eggs, potatoes, bagel with cream cheese. When I ordered I was told potatoes weren't available and would I like to substitute a bagel? I said yes. When my food was delivered, it had potatoes. There always seems to be something not exactly right with the service at Palio, but I usually don't care. I also had a cup of coffee. They do not offer free refills, which seems silly because their ceramic cups barely hold 8 ounces. UCSF shuttle from Parnassus to Laurel Heights. All-day webedit workshop hosted by Eric. For lunch a bunch of us ate at The View Cafe. After the workshop we needed a break so Eric, Stefan, and I returned to my office, and we played a strategy game called Stones of Fate that Eric had Kickstarted and was awaiting the final product. Eric also gave us a sneak peek at a game tentatively called Meetings. Upon arriving at my office, we found an Edible Arrangement sent by Esteban—so nice. We opened it and everyone ate or took as much as they could before the weekend. I walked to Pasta Pomodoro Laurel Heights where Patrick met me for dinner. They ran a three-course, $19.94 prix fixe menu for their 20th anniversary. Caesar salad for both, Patrick had spaghetti arrabbiata with meatballs, I had penne portobello with grilled chicken and italian sausage in roasted garlic cream sauce. The menu claimed that the spaghetti was spicy but it was not very spicy at all. We each drank a glass of wine. Patrick had sangiovese, I had merlot. We both could not finish our entrees and wanted to save room for dessert. Patrick had eggless panna cotta with berries, I had tiramisu. The tiramisu was somewhat unusual in that it was topped with coarsely chopped chocolate (the menu said chocolate shavings). $70.36 after tip. Patrick drove us home.

LastPass has the best response I've seen yet to Heartbleed. For the passwords you have stored with them, a page you can visit after logging in shows you which passwords are ready to be updated and which ones you should wait before changing.

This was a fun show with, a bit oddly, an auction of two high-priced trip packages stuck in the middle following a 20-minute intermission. Seating was assigned; we sat in the orchestra in row K, which is the center rear. I met Christian, Gerard, and Yosh.
