Fun episode. Scored 420 out of 500 on the quizzes at whoknowswho.tv
It isn’t happening for 50 weeks, but the onrush of the big-SIX-OH is had to dismiss or ignore. The 50′s haven’t been so great being populated mainly with layoff, underemployment, and then long-term unemployment. Lots of things have happened during that time; relocation to Colorado, Chapter 9 after the 2008 ‘Great Recession’, falling off the water wagon, climbing back on said water wagon, a disastrous experiment with working for a big-box retailer (kill me now!), and on-going serious introspection and re-evaluation, occupationally, personally, and in terms of my relationships.
So follow along, there will be links, comments, and some old school blogging along the way as well…
I’ve not been able to log in to my hosting company, cornerhost.com, since they upgraded over a year ago. I can update this blog and have downloaded my data files but can’t manage email domains, ftp files, or any of the other stuff you might like to do having you own remotely hosted domains. So, email@example.com , if you’re out there there, let me know. ‘Cause I’m shopping around.
Long time bloggers from the EditThisPage universe may remember Dave Rogers (aka, Commander Dave, blogging at Time’s Shadow, Groundhog Day, Nice Marmot). His father Jack (Sailor Jack) passed last night. Our thoughts are with the Rogers family and with Dave.
For some time I’ve been trying to get ahold of firstname.lastname@example.org who runs Cornerhost where this site and others are hosted. I can’t FTP or or do any of the other protocols to access my sites. The control panel at cornerhost.net won’t send messages and his email addy has a full mailbox. Help?
I just turned the tv on and see the Medal of Honor being awarded to 24 servicemen from the Vietnam, Korea, and WWII era who were never considered for the award despite their valor and heroism because of their ‘color’ or religion. The military is correcting this, today. May the rest of our society follow this example. Now please excuse me, I’m having feelings and stuff…
Spent a good part of yesterday’s 70°F afternoon turning soil with a potato fork, adding amendments, hoeing the eager late winter weeds, and leveling the plot in general. Today it is mid-30°s with a forecast of possible snow/precipitation. Go ahead Ma, for once, we’re ready!
Well, it had to happen. I bugged Comcast/Xfinity long enough about the sucky connectivity at the Blivet Hacienda ver. 3.0 that they sent us a new cable modem/WiFi/internet device via UPS. Today I jousted with the dragon that is improved speed to no avail. I did manage to change the default password to thwart various unidentified hackers (doubtless sympathizers of who know what splinter group) and then it never resolved. I wanted their router to act like a bridge as before, but no… FRACK.
I hate you, technology.
Three crashes involving long post drafts that just went away… I hate you. Back to Firefox? Hmmm…
