In other news, so far it seems to hold up.

What could be more fun than sitting there on a sunday afternoon, drinking coffee and doing forensics on what the attack vector on WordPress might have been this time around?

Fake friends won't boost this.

But real friends are never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you.

You know what the good thing about WordPress is? Anyone can develop a plugin or a theme.

You know what tbe bad thing about WordPress is? Everyone does.

So on another instance, the question of your three all-time favorite movies was asked. Mine were:

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
The World According To Garp
Ghost In A Shell.

But I just realized I didn't mention existenZ, and now I'm puzzled.

Soon, it will be thirty years that I develop software for money. And it's been around twenty five that I've been doing web stuff.

Somehow, this feels strange.

I just spent part of my evening at the school of my kids. I heard from one of the sixteen year olds there that a third of their classmates didn't know what the Holocaust was. And a few of them knew but found it funny to make jokes about it.

So this is what the world feels post-breakdown.


Okay. Setting up the new machine from the Time Machine volume took a while, but worked out all right.

I'm now up and running on the new laptop. I like that.

In other news, after that expensive day at work I came home to find the car had been towed by the city, so i spent some time and cash on getting it back today.


While the fact that the laptop gave up its life rather spontaneously and left me without a working machine for work, the fact that the replacement took about eighteen hours from order to delivery is slightly impressive. And the fact that Time Machine integrates good enough backups into the OS is a great feature.

Setting up the machine from that backup is running. And I hope to be back to work on it tomorrow. Let’s see how a MacBook Pro 2018 compares to the mid 2014 I had.

My favorite Twitter find of the day:

People are usually quite shocked when they find out I'm not a particularly good electrician …

I've come to the conclusion I don't understand Brexit.

If somebody posts to Mastodon from France … is that a Toot de France?

After installing a new audio interface, my laptop refused to boot. Things to keep the heart racing in the evening …

2019. Isn't it a good year to get to a regular backup practice? Where do you store your backups -- where do you keep offsite backups of valuable data, and when have you last verified the data you backup?
