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 […]
Is flat, like ironing board.
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 […]
On legally acquired media, acquisition of media, and increasing difficulty in consumption.
Xial talks about an in-house streaming machine for their already purchased content.
There are gTLDs, developers.
Bloody act like it. This starts a rant about Cost Plus World Market, and many other websites that requests your email address, but uses some archaic, distressingly not-updated method of determining if the email address might or might not be valid.

A ponderance on new hosting digs…

Caddy has been extra easy, thus far, though I am not sure how I would handle the equivalent of Apache’s mod_rewrite rules, which […]
A reflection upon the past, part two.
Xial comes back to the tale of living homelessly in the past.
The one thing that gets me about open source projects is that while many of them are becoming simpler, others are turning up the complication factor beyond a comfortable level. Maybe this time… MAYBE… Maybe Lick the Blue Things will announce its presence on the Fediverse. Also on: brid.gy
A reflection upon the past, part one.
In which Xial talks a fair bit about the past, of loss and homelessness.
