Ensure one VM ("gateway") is running before allowing the others
View Vagrantfile
# Check to see that we have a gateway running before we allow the `up` of another VM
# This is a filthy hack
if ARGV[0] != 'up'
GATEWAY_STATUS = 'running' # this is irrelevant for everything but `vagrant up`
# if we don't do this, we could fork forever in the else block, here
GATEWAY_STATUS = `vagrant status --machine-readable | grep 'gateway,state,' | awk -F, {'print $4'}`.strip!

This is stuff on my hit list when I'm in Vermont:

  • Hill Farmstead Brewery
  • Parker Pie (near HF) for pizza / bottles; they have a great tap list
  • Willys Store in Greensboro for HF bottles and Jasper Hill cheeses (Moses Sleeper, Cabot Clothbound, Alpha Tolman, Harbison, … )
  • There's a roadside pie shop right outside of Elmore State Park
  • Lost Nation brewery in Morristown (lunch, taps)
  • Alchemist in Stowe (the new place)
  • Doc Ponds in Stowe for eats + good taps + good bottles
  • The Bench in Stowe (same)

Get a twitter profile image from a username. We route around bad APIs. Twitter wears the scumbag hat, these days.
