Changes

A friend asked me for some help with his WordPress site yesterday, which kind of rekindled my interest in this one. I’ve made some changes ‘under-the-hood,’ which shouldn’t be obvious to you, the visitor. There are a few more I want to do, but its been a long day. We’re now running on Ubuntu 18.04 and PHP 7.2. Tomorrow, maybe, I’m going to upgrade the … Continue reading Changes »

Lockdown

Back from Neverland I suppose this would have been a good time to be contributing to this thing. Two months into the CV-lockdown and I’m finally getting around to writing something here. Overall, I’ve enjoyed the quarantine. I mostly keep to myself anyway and have most everything I need here at home. I missed seeing my students in person this past semester. But otherwise, for … Continue reading Lockdown »

This Masquerade…

No real reason for the title. Well, yeah, that’s the song that’s playing on my stream at the moment. No other significance, though. So, the semester’s begun. Things are looking good so far, though we’ve only had one class meeting so far. My sysadmin class is really small, which usually makes for a great semester with them.

It was getting hammered with spam. I tried to firewall the culprit, both on the server and through Wordfence. But, alas! No joy. I’m hoping that taking it down for a … Continue reading Happy New Year »

For all my nerd friends out there…and in response to being a ‘client’ for one of the project groups in my classes, I made a meme generator. They noted the memes/silly pics I routinely post in notices for them and pitched the idea of a meme repository for for their site. On reflection, I told them that’d be a great idea, but (though it’s outside … Continue reading I made a meme 🙂 »

Couldn’t resist sharing…

I dunno why, but this cracked me up: It’s been a while since I rode. Though that’s all I did (all I had) back when I was 18. Back then, I knew upstate South Carolina like the back of my hand. Last time I was there visiting, I needed a GPS receiver to extricate myself from the country backroads. Oh well, time marches on. I … Continue reading Couldn’t resist sharing… »

Had to share

A former co-worker posted this on FB…it’s worth a couple of chuckles  🙂 How to Tell Where a Cop works: Narcotics -Immediately grow facial hair, tell everybody you were ordered to. -Start wearing size schmedium “Tap Out” t-shirts -Start watching every episode of Monster Garage. -Buy a biker wallet with a big chain. -Practice the “Don’t acknowledge me, even while in the police station, look.” … Continue reading Had to share »
