Wutsearch Review

Thanks to Nicholas Ferrell for his excellent and thorough review of Wutsearch search-engine launchpad.

RSS FTW

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

Linux shopping

Any Linux users reading? Would love to get input on which distro to go with. Thinking Ubuntu to start because of its popularity.

Apple SUCKS

Apple really disappoints by *forcing* two-factor authentication on its users.

Apps on Big Sur

Apps on macOS Big Sur open SOOOOOO slowly. Like painfully slow. Switching to Linux in the near future.

Endless Barking

Our neighbor just lets their little rat dog bark incessantly 24/7. Endless barking for the whole neighborhood.

Waterfox

Loving Waterfox, my new favorite browser for general surfing and playing on teh Web.

Amazon Sucks

Avoiding Amazon until they stop forcing 2-factor authentication. Frustrating waste of time. Make it optional imbeciles.

Sans Scanner

Today my trusty scanner died. Not going to replace it. And when my printer finally dies, I’m not going to replace that either.

Away Time

Spent about a week or so away from screens and media as much as possible. Helps to regain perspective.

Domain-based email

Power is *not* relying on a 3rd-party service to handle your email.

Dialing it in

Streamlining my entire digital universe into a single highly focused beam.

Make static WP site

Simply Static is my go-to plugin for generating static HTML versions of WordPress sites. Works flawlessly.

eBay blargh!

Note to self: never, ever, ever buy any CD or DVD from eBay. Every single time the discs are scratched, damaged, missing, fake, or worse. Never again you clowns.
