How it’s going

Watching. Waiting. Praying.

Plugin updates Fall 2020

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

BBQ Firewall

7G Firewall now integrated into BBQ Firewall (free version). Pro version soon ;)

Big Sur

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

macOS red dot

Got so sick of macOS’ annoying “red dot” that I had to remove System Prefs from the dock. Come on Apple you can do better.

nG on Nginx

Beginning development of an Nginx version of 7G Firewall.
