Jetpack

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Well, I installed & enabled Jetpack on here.  Hopefully it helps the issue of the site looking horrible on mobile phones.  If you notice anything wonky, please let me know ASAP.

Time

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Well, it is getting close to the time Leighton will make is appearance. We still have so much to do but it will be great when he’s here. Scheduled C-section for delivery and two weeks off “work”. Not sure how Lucas will react yet, but it is exciting.

In other news, I have installed RetroPIE on a Raspberry Pi 3, used an Ada Fruit script to move its root volume to a USB SSD so it boots a lot faster than the MicroSD card did (also loads games faster too) and it should be more reliable.

Finally, I managed to get an Up! Plus 3D printer for free. So far so good on using it. I like seeing stuff print and I have plans to make a yarn baller for my wife and a Wind Energy toy for my brother’s kids.

Been a while

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Well,
It has been a while since my last update. Been busy with life. Wife and I are expecting another baby December 27th. Found out not to long ago that it will be a boy and his name will be Leighton Thomas McCloud. Can’t tell if Lucas is excited or not yet, only time will tell. I do know the wife and I are planning on getting a hotel the night before delivery (scheduled C-section) so we don’t have to get up quite as early in the morning (as of right now, she has to be there at 7am which means we have to leave no later than 6am and get up no later than 5am)……. Soon we will have to have Lucas do his first overnight away from us, this will be hard for both my wife and I. Although it will be harder for her since she has yet to spend a night away from him while I have.

Also, if you could click on ads I would appreciate it 🙂

SSL Fun

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Well,

I’m working on setting up two subdomains using Let’s Encrypt for SSL certificates.  I managed to really mess something up in regards to forcing people to use SSL for them, so much so that I had to delete them and will try again in the future (they aren’t super important, just for my use mostly).

Ugh

Well,

 

I reinstalled the OS on my VPS and had everything backed up.  Problem is, the restore of the backups did not work.  Means I get to re-setup everything 🙁  Should be a fun time that will take me a while to do…….
