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.

WordPress 5.5

Just upgraded Perishable Press to WP 5.5. So far so good..

Wow great support

LOL @ “weekly” support: “Your request has been received and will be reviewed soon. Neil (your support guy) checks support requests weekly. Rest assured we’ll get to it!” — Gotta be kidding with this.

BoTW

After several days of work, finally taking a break. If anyone needs me, I’ll be in Zora’s Domain, working thru Mah Eliya shrine.

Words of wisdom

Never ever call the client a useless idiot. Even if it’s true.

Feedburner alternatives

Inevitable that Google shuts down Feedburner. Maybe this year? Who knows. Here is a nice summary plus alternatives.

Marvel and wonder

There is no way that Marvel can serve up anything better than what they’ve already done with Infinity saga/Endgame. Knowhere to go but down, sadly.

Search launchpad

I built a new search launchpad to make my life easier. So I can search multiple engines quickly and easily.

Plugin Updates!

Updating all muh plugins for WP 5.5 imminent release! Wut August :)

Book updates!

Book updates complete! DigWP, .htaccess, Tao-WP, and WP Themes books all updated and current with all the latest.

Great article about using RSS as a Facebook alternative. I use RSS/feeds for news every day. Facebook, not so much.
