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
An attempt to fix things…
So, reviewing my plugins a little closer for WordPress, it appears the old way I was doing things for federating to Mastodon might have been long broken and had been fixed with different plugins that I had installed, but not set up. I’ll know fairly soon if this works… If so, hello, Fediverse. 🙂

In which Xial talks a fair bit about the past, of loss and homelessness.
Moving dislike of Walgreens from Passive to Active.

I’ll be starting classes next Wednesday night, and this has me rather nervous when you get down to it. Here I am, a person in my late 30s, going back to school and […]
Unexpected downtime and removed plugins.
I had removed a WordPress plugin called WordFence a while back, and all was well. Today, however, some leftover components from WordFence reared their head and brought my no-name blog down. This is why SSH should be a standard feature of any hosting package. I was able to shell in, find the offending files and […]
On freedom of choice in pharmacies.
I’ll keep this one shorter than usual. I advocate for the freedom to choose which pharmacy you can go to. Being told you can only use certain pharmacies does not encourage good care.
