Air clearing

Air finally clearing here in WA. Feeling grateful to breathe again. #oxygenmatters

Smoke attack

Past week here in WA state has been hellish. So much smoke, like living in a chimney.

September 2020

Now in September, I’m where I wanted to be in March.

Article update

Spent some time updating my article on unsafe characters, once again current with latest IETF specification.

Neo

Just realized that “Neo” is an anagram for “One”. As in, “he is the One” (The Matrix).

VLC player tip

To get VLC app to load all songs (including subfolders), go to Preferences ▸ Show All ▸ Playlist ▸ Subdirectory behavior ▸ Expand.

Switching to Affinity Photo

Switching from PhotoShop to Affinity Photo is one of the most liberating work-related things I’ve done in 20 years.

Pro plugin updates

Finally got my collection of Pro WordPress plugins updated. Everything now better than ever and current with WP 5.5.

VLC media player

I heart VLC player, but its default random mode absolutely sucks for large music libraries. Update: improve VLC random mode.

Back on track

Air conditioner finally fixed. Now getting back on track with work and stuff.

Wake up

It’s not real buddy. Turn off the propaganda and think for yourself.

Internet outage maps

Something tells me these Internet outage tools will be very super useful for the next several months. Buckle up people.

Summer heat

Right in the middle of the August desert heatwave (temps above 100°F / 38°C), our air conditioner dies. Not getting much done while waiting for a fix. Just way too hot.

Google search results

Somehow the Google search results are less on target lately. Taking longer to find basic information.

Plesk updates

I feel like I deserve a hero badge for keeping Plesk updated to the latest version.

Inspiring details

This is an inspiring design for tutorial sites. So many cool little details. Gotta try that tty-player.
