Just a quick set of updates as I get ready to run to work here. WordPress has hit a milestone release with version 6 of their platform software recently. They’ve come a long, long way from their initial fork of b2 ages ago, and I’ll gladly say Congrats to Automattic and team for the work […]
This brief quip is brought to you by my distaste for the nitrous-infused soda released by Pepsi. I bought a can, despite not having access to a no-sugar variant, because I figured I would at least give it a try. Let’s just say that both myself and a housemate could conjure up ideas of things […]
A preface: I started writing this post a few years prior, and it got lost in thought. While my transportation modality has changed: I now own an automobile, the bulk of what I said still stands. For a year and a half, I owned an electric scooter, which was sadly recently stolen after being down […]
