  • Migrating from Hugo to Micro.Blog

    I’ve been splitting my time between my own site (pictured below) and my Micro.Blog instance for…a while now. At first, I tried to keep long-form posts on my site (created using Hugo, hosted at Cloud Flare) and micro / random thoughts to Micro.Blog but the other day, I thought it would โ€ฆ read more

  • He really does look rather regal here but I think he’s trying to lure me into a false sense of security; I still think Alex is upset about the continuing construction in the house. ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ“ท

  • ๐Ÿ“ท Going on a walk during the lunch break always helps clear my head. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  • ๐Ÿฟ As it’s Halloween, of course we’re watching The Nightmare Before Christmas. ๐ŸŽƒ

    Jack Skeleton looks at a giant snowflake he's holding in his hand, a screen grab from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    I suspect I’m going to start decorating for Christmas tomorrow; it’s been a rough year and I could use the extra “holiday” time. ๐ŸŽ„

  • This has to be the buggiest version of WatchOS Iโ€™ve ever used. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Even after an erase / reset, the battery is draining too fast. The heart rate complication doesnโ€™t work anymore. Now I canโ€™t get into the widgets, which means a restart. What is going on at Apple?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  • Took three weeks but the burial is over, the slide show is done, and everyone cried; I feel like I can finally start grieving now. ๐Ÿ’” On the plus side, I did get to hang out with my cousins today, which was lovely, along with some aunts and other family. ๐Ÿ˜

    Goodbye Grandma, I’ll miss you always. โค๏ธ

  • Random Thought: Yea, this sounds about right, once the price is outside of what most “normal” people would consider reasonable, piracy increases… ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ

    Screen grab of a Tweet from Tom Warren, with the following verbiage: if Apple TV, Netflix, and Disney+ keep raising prices then it will only force more people into piracy. It's already surprising how many in the UK use modified Fire TV sticks to access pirated TV shows and movies
  • Yup, he’s still not happy with the construction…it’s almost done but I can tell he’s plotting our downfall. ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ“ท

  • It was just starting to feel like autumn but this week…not so much. ๐Ÿ‚

  • Alex is not amused by the construction going on in the house. ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ“ท

  • I’ve been bashing my head against the Micro.blog theming system, trying to get it matching the one on my primary website but given the time of day, it’s time to shutdown and try again tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ

  • Listening to Mishima / Closing… ๐ŸŽต

    Covert art for 'Mishima / Closing' song, pulled from Apple Music.

    I’m not sure why it’s affecting me so much but as soon as this song came on (listening to random “for you” playlist on Apple Music, I started thinking about Grandma. ๐Ÿ’” It’s a little odd b/c this wasn’t her type of music but here we are, the brain is odd.

  • I’m very excited about the upcoming live-action the Last Airbender series. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I loved the original series on Nickelodeon and while we don’t talk about the movie that came out a while ago (worst movie I’ve ever seen), things are looking good for the Netflix version. ๐Ÿ˜„

  • Empty server case on light-brown carpet, with some bubble wrap in the back of the case, with some boxed computer fans on top, with wires coming out of the front of the case.

    I was hoping to start swapping my media server from it’s tower case into my new Slinger CX4712 case over the weekend…but life got in the way. Fingers crossed I can get to it this week, I don’t want to impact any end users. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“ท

  • Photo of a container of Trader Joe's pumpkin spice coffee on the right side (on top of a kitchen counter, the 'fake' marbled pattern in various shades of brown), next to a calendar-book featuring a photo of a museum in Germany (it's a Rick Steve calendar).

    Yes, I might be called “basic” but ’tis the season… ๐ŸŽƒโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท
