Migrating WordPress to a New Server

I recently set up a new VPS, because there was a sale on an instance large enough to serve my needs (and then some) at a price point that I couldn't ignore. My old host was RamNode, and make no mistake, I've never ever had any qualms with RamNode - the customer service has always… Continue reading Migrating WordPress to a New Server

My Fractured Writing Process

Yesterday I mentioned using Scrivener to write, and I mentioned that I have sort of a graduated process for writing that isn't very efficient. I wanted to actually write down how I write, just to sort of collect what I do; maybe the documentation process will help me see it for what it is ("a… Continue reading My Fractured Writing Process

Volt, considering moving away from WordPress

Ah, new things and directions.... Someone on IRC this morning mentioned Volt.ws, a messaging client available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. It's really tiny. It's also missing a lot of functionality still, but it can connect to Slack... and it's tiny. It still doesn't support Slack private messages, but once it gets those (which should… Continue reading Volt, considering moving away from WordPress

Outrage on Social Media articles; State of the Union

Things I'm thinking about, after switching back to a list-based list of thoughts because Gutenberg headers annoy me: Gutenberg headers annoy me. I'm thinking of switching back to my comfortable editing process where I'm not constantly griping about my editor. It's a flow thing.Good article from Medium, paywalled (so if you don't have a Medium… Continue reading Outrage on Social Media articles; State of the Union

Super Bowl, Commercials, Gutenberg Headings

Okay, I'm going to try the header format thing again, because it's something new and different (for me) in WordPress' Medium-style editor. But here are the things I'm thinking about: The Super Bowl I tried to think of a cute pun for the title, but "The Super Bah" was dumb. I came up with others,… Continue reading Super Bowl, Commercials, Gutenberg Headings

Busy, new music, Getting Things Done, data import

It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I've been busy. But now that I'm here... I'm still not thrilled with the Gutenberg editor. It's okay, but I just don't care for it.I've been working on music, and that's been eating what time I have left after work and family, so I haven't been… Continue reading Busy, new music, Getting Things Done, data import

Blogging, getting wordpress running properly on Ubuntu

Things I'm thinking and feeling: I really don't "blog" all that much. I record, I guess, and that's sort of a "web log," but I really don't expose much of my innermost feelings - it's like observations with a mirror in the way. I've always been that way when I write. Always.Today I'm going to… Continue reading Blogging, getting wordpress running properly on Ubuntu

Flit, Trump’s Address on 19 Jan, Elite: Dangerous

Things that are crossing my path lately: Flit, in context of "Python Packages and You." Python packaging is not a strength of mine.I hate to say it, but the Democrats' rejection of Trump's offer to open negotiations about the government now look kinda stupid, based on their oppositions. They're saying that a three year suspension… Continue reading Flit, Trump’s Address on 19 Jan, Elite: Dangerous
