One Year

2017-10-24T21:05:38Z

I can’t believe it’s already been this long but last Wednesday the 18th marked one full year since my cancer diagnosis. Between all of the chemotherapy to get me into remission, the bone marrow transplant, the twice weekly clinic visits, and now the relapse, it’s been quite the year. I still have a long ways […]



Leukemia Relapse

2017-09-19T16:34:46Z

Things had been going extremely smoothly and uneventful since my bone marrow transplant in May, making it easy to procrastinate writing a post here on my blog with updates. No news is good news, right? Well unfortunately that’s changed. The stem cell transplant went as expected including me spending most of May in the hospital […]






Bone Marrow Transplant

2017-04-28T05:56:54Z

My cancer adventures continue starting tomorrow when I’m admitted to a local hospital in preparation for a bone marrow transplant. I’ll be receiving the stem cells from an unknown and unrelated donor as unfortunately neither of my sisters were a match. Before I get the transplant however, they will be giving me yet more chemotherapy […]



A New Domain For My Blog

2017-04-28T00:59:19Z

For nearly 14 years, my blog’s domain name has been Viper007Bond.com. As of today though, it’s now alex.blog! The company I work for, Automattic, purchased the rights to the new .blog TLD last year. As an employee perk, we all received a free .blog domain including the option to get a hard-to-get premium domain like […]



Cancer Remission And Temporarily Out Of The Hospital

2016-12-19T06:02:38Z

Apologies for the delay since my last post. I know many of you have been asking me for an update. The biggest news is that I’m now in remission! That means that the latest bone marrow biopsy I had detected no traces leukemia. It doesn’t mean that I’m completely cancer free however and I need […]



Hospital, Day 34

2016-11-22T02:51:17Z

34 days and I’m still in the hospital. It’s boring, but necessary for my treatment unfortunately. Lots of bad days, especially this past week, but some aren’t quite as bad as the rest. Today I had a crazy procedure where they got a biopsy of my liver by going through my jugular vein so that […]



Hospital, Day 23

2016-11-11T03:47:28Z

I had a bone marrow biopsy done on Tuesday and the results came back today saying that the current chemotherapy treatment hasn’t been as effective as hoped. I came into the hospital at about 95% infection and my oncologist had hoped to see it down to as low as 5% now (they’re aggressively treating it) […]



Hospital, Day 21

2016-11-08T20:32:34Z

Today marks the 21st day of being in the hospital for leukemia. I’m feeling much better than that week before I checked into the ER but the weekly chemo drugs they give me can really zap my energy. Thankfully they pre-drug me to counter the effects, but there’s only so much you can do to keep […]



Leukemia

2016-10-21T16:50:33Z

Leukemia. Certainly not one of the words you expect to hear from your doctor when he’s calling about blood test results and telling you to get to the ER. I hadn’t been feeling great since about October 10th — no appetite, a light fever of about 100F, and was easily getting out of breath due […]



Röyksopp — Never Ever ft. Susanne Sundfør

2016-09-29T05:01:18Z

Norwegian duo Röyksopp, one of my favorite groups, has a new single and music video out! It’s been nearly 2 years since their last original release so it’s great to hear some new stuff from them! The music video is very weird and trippy but the song is awesome:



Viper’s Video Quicktags WordPress Plugin Discontinued

2016-07-05T02:13:25Z

I’m officially discontinuing my Viper’s Video Quicktags WordPress plugin. It was one of the first plugins I ever wrote over 10 years ago. Back then embedding videos into WordPress posts was a chore and so I wrote the plugin to make the life of authors much easier. Since then a lot has changed, namely the […]



Forza Horizon 3 Coming To Windows!

2016-06-14T01:54:24Z

One of my favorite casual racing games, Forza Horizon, will be coming to Windows! I’m so excited! It was one of the very few games that I played on a console and I was never able to play the second one as I don’t own an Xbox One and it was an ugly port for […]



Six (Plus A Bit) Years At Automattic

2016-03-09T01:44:34Z

Today marks my sixth anniversary of officially being hired on Automattic. As I’ve mentioned before though, I had been on contract for 9 months before actually being hired. Since my last anniversary, I’ve joined the VaultPress team (I can’t believe that’s nearly been a year too!) and have been enjoying the change of type of […]



New Exhaust On The Viper

2016-03-02T22:36:24Z

Over the weekend I installed new exhaust on my Viper. I’ve been wanting to do it for years but I had to wait until I finished paying off the car to be able to afford it. After making the last car payment in January, I splurged and went for it. It’s hard to capture the […]
