Got all of my free WordPress plugins updated for imminent WP 5.6 in early December. Pro plugin updates currently in the works.

macOS Big Sur update complete. So far no crazy issues. Except TextEdit, which is completely screwed up and unusable. Replaced with free BBEdit.

Beginning development of an Nginx version of 7G Firewall.
Happy Birthday to Perishable Press, celebrating 15 years online! :)
