A brief outage

Well, it had to happen at some point. My first outage since moving my website to <a hre"https://www.linode.com/?r=31b44f454740d06a1014351fded0ede51d25fa33" :target="_blank">linode happened last week. Here is a little bit of what happened and how I recovered. What Happened? Usually when I check into a server while doing whatever is on the todo list for the day, I will also check if anything needs to be updated. This time, there were a lot of updates so it looks it must be a new version of CentOS.

2021 - WWDC Predictions

OK, predictions might be a stretch. But here are a few things that I’d like to see in the WWDC happening this week! iOS Predictions Last year was the year of the widgets in iOS. They were a hit for being customizable, being able to do certain tasks that would present information to you. This year, I think its time to take that next step in the evolution and have them become much more interactive.

When does your calendar start?

I can’t recall what podcast that I was listening to, most likely one of the relay.fm ones and most likely Analog(ue). The discussion came around to, what day do you consider the start of the week. US calendars typically will have Sunday as the first day of the week. This seems silly as Sunday is the day of rest. Sunday is part of the weekEND. So why would you start the week with Sunday?

Git Repo renaming

I’ll fully admit, I’m a little behind the times here in getting my repos renamed. This started back in 2020 and many companies made the switch to remove references to master/slave setups of databases and master repos in git This was much needed change in the tech industry and one that I fully welcome. This also meant, I have had some work to do in cleaning up my github repos both public and private branches.

Fitness+ Reactions

How did we get here? Recently I purchased a new apple watch which gave me an added benefit of 3 months of fitness+. The timing of this couldn’t be better with the watch coming in at the end of 2020 and the long winter here in the midwest settling in. Long runs outside would be on hold for a bit so what better way to spend some lunches than with some yoga or HIIT workouts.
