JAVA WEB APPS

I really hate web pages that have a Java web app on them.  Especially since the days of being able to run them are going to be going away shortly.  Currently, Firefox ESR 52 32-bit allows you to run them, but once they move the ESR to the next version the ability to run them goes away.  HTML5 pages are much better, to bad legacy network gear (I’m looking at you old HP ProCurve at work) will never be updated……

Port Forwarding

Well, port forwarding in RouterOS is way different then any other router I’ve used so far.  Tonight I’m hoping I have enough time to figure out what I did wrong so I can get the ports I need to forward forwarded out.

Mattress Topper

My wife and I have had our current mattress for a while and while it is still comfortable it needs some help.  We picked up a Fieldcrest 3″ cooling foam topper at Target yesterday. Didn’t fix it 100% but it was a good first step. Also didn’t wake up covered in sweat like we used to. 

Balance Bike

Well, we got Lucas a balance bike.  He took to it right away.  Not the best yet, but he did pretty good for his first time.  He also had a blast on hit which is all we care about.

PGP

Well,

I decided to try setting up PGP email again.  Not sure how it will work on my phone but on my work desktop it works great in a browser (Gmail).  If you want my public key, let me know.

Amazon Echo Dot

Got the two free Echo Dots that I got for pre-ordering my phone. Both are setup, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. Looking then so far. Kind of worried that the one in the bedroom will end up lighting up in the middle of the night. Hoping not though. Really disliking the skill for my Sensi thermostat though. All I can do is set a temperature I want, raise or lower it n degrees. I cannot turn the AC/heat on/off. Hopefully it gets updated to allow this.

w00t

Wife and I did our taxes last weekend. Really like how much we are getting back. My dad also had a HP Envy Touch Slimbook that he gave me, needed a new HDD. So I put my 250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD in it. Won’t run much for games, but it is a much nicer laptop than the Lenovo I was using (i5 vs i3, weighs less, etc). No DVD drive in it, but I can survive without that for a while. Eventually, one will be on sale at Amazon and I’ll pick it up. I’d get a BluRay burner, but they still cost an arm and a leg, maybe a reader though.

Theme

I decided to change out the theme on my site. Even though I’ve always had a PC at home, classic Mas OS holds a special place in my heart since it’s what my elementary and high school had growing up.

Insurance

Well,
Just got our insurance plans/premiums for next year. They are super expensive but I cannot blame my employer, I definitely blame our government for it.

Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day is coming July 12th. If you do not have Prime, it is a great time to sign up. My wife and I have it and in addition to the free 2 day shipping, we stream a lot of video and our son loves his Free Time 🙂
