Year: 2020

  • Using MySQL on here

    Today I went to try and clean things up a little bit since I haven’t really done that in some time. At least it feels that way to me. I looked at the comments and realized there were some in the trash. I didn’t think much of it since you know it’s just trash. There […]

  • On learning languages

    The other day I wanted to start a new project, experiment thing to to learn how something worked. I got totally distracted and forgot what I wanted to work on. This seems to happen more and more lately too since there are so many things I really want to learn. I get so distracted with […]

  • Temp theme

    The other day I swapped out the theme here because the upcoming Twenty Twenty One theme was introduced. It is still being developed and worked on so that means I do expect some of the things on here to break. I’m used to things breaking though. For those who do want to either follow along […]

  • Reading other things

    The other day I was trying to understand something and began to search the web. This lead me to a random rabbit hole because isn’t that usually the case with a lot of things too? The thing I wanted to understand more was MySQL because there are things I know I don’t really know. I […]

  • Indecisiveness

    There are a lot of things that I do think about. One of which is how I want to present the content on this site. Some days I just like to write those out and it leads to other random things.

  • Being a guinea pig

    The other day I was wanting to experiment with FSE. Sigh. Yeah. A bit of a weird term. Acronym really. More to the point another thing that may just confuse a few more people. The reason I say this is because it stands for Full Site Editing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to […]

  • Always a work in progress

    Yesterday I was able to change out the theme to this site. I spent most of the day just fiddling and trying to get things to just work. I took a theme from the free repository and scrapped a lot the unused files. Yeah. There were quite a few that I didn’t really need. Many […]

  • Random spring cleaning

    Today I spent some time on the support forums answering some questions and just trying to help some people out. I also cleaned things up a little bit on this site. The one thing I did was clear out random tables from the database and just tinkered with other things along the way. I was […]

  • Darn command line

    I don’t remember when I did this but I did find it a little funny. I wanted to install SVN on my Windows machine because I clearly like to torture myself. Right? Okay, but really. I wanted to install it because WordPress is still using it for now. I do think it is a good […]

  • Extra or missing characters

    The other day I was tinkering with a random test site and was driven to near madness. Why? I kept forgetting to add the ending semicolon. Every single time. It wasn’t that I would miss the key stroke it was that I just legit didn’t press the thing. I spent a minute or two every […]
