One of my recent hobbies (aside from breaking my WordPress site) is anything related to the Raspberry Pi. I use it as a network media player in my living room, USB computer on a stick and as a retrogaming console. Nintendo recently released the NES Classic Edition which comes with 30 built in games. This holiday […]
I’m a photography nut. I love using my DSLR, I’m mad about film cameras and I use Instagram all the time. I’m also a WordPress user and I have a problem with Instagram: the photos are not preserved on my own site. To fix that I installed the amazing DsgnWrks Instagram Importer plugin and I’ve been using […]
Firefox is weird. In a forum conversation (which went so off topic but that’s alright) the following was reported to me. When you visited my site in Firefox, you get a warning about being insecure. Huh. That’s odd and a little embarrassing. I mean, I’m a network security professional so you can see how that […]
This may fall under category of "bad parenting" but probably not. I hope not. Just don't tell Lily, OK? My daughter saw all of the fun her brother has playing Team Fortress 2 and wanted in on the action. The kitchen iMac doesn't play games very well but my PC does. So I set her up […]
My son plays Team Fortress 2 a great deal and wanted to host his own server with mods for him and his friends to play on. Rather than using his PC for that I created an account for him on the Linux basement server. I downloaded the Linux dedicated server, did a little port forwarding, a few […]
Last weekend I completed assembling a 1/144 scale Zaku II model and today I quickly detailed and applies some decals. Here’s some photos of the completed model. It’s a nice Zaku II. I’ll build a Master Grade model next.
I completed the assembly of the HG Char’s Zaku II (Origin version). It came out OK and the parts have a lot of detail. It’s a 1/144 scale version and didn’t take long to put together. The next thing I’ll do is add detail lines and the decals.
I am in the process of handing over a site to someone who's not used WordPress before and doesn't necessarily know where what lives and how. I thought it would be a good idea for me to document how to use the free UpdraftPlus plugin. I use the commercial version of this plugin because it […]
Oh, Saturday Night Live. Sometimes you miss it but this you’re right on target. I should start DVR’ing this season.
I’ve written praise for wp-cli before but it’s a toy that will never get old for me. I was working on this problem for a friend and I needed to create a test multisite installation. I have a domain I can use aside from my main one so I setup another nginx virtual host, setup the DNS […]
