I upgraded WordPress the software which runs this blog earlier this week. According to the documentation, it was a “major” version update; but, so far, I haven’t discovered any new features. Still I’m sure that there will quick succession of “minor” releases to fix whatever is broken. Hopefully this site will not be affected by any of the inevitable bugs. Have a great weekend.
After all the busy weekends, we do not have much planned for Saturday or Sunday. It’s supposed to rain. So, even though it will be warm, we won’t be able to row or do any yard work. It will be good to relax. Unfortunately, I expect it’s just the first weekend of manythat we’ll be reminiscing about the summer and anxiously waiting for spring.
Have a great weekend.
There were a lot of walkers at the Turkey run we did this past week. I don’t understand why they don’t start toward the back as instructed in the race information. Instead, they start at the front and slow all the runners down. The race was crowded so it took us over a mile to pass them all. If I was walking, I wouldn’t want to have runner after runner streaming by me for such a long time. Especially if I was trying to walk with someone.
We are slowly transitioning to our winter schedule. This has been a strange year weather-wise. It was cool in the spring, then suddenly it was roasting hot. The fall was warm, then the weather quickly turned cold. We didn’t have the gradual transitions that are typical with the change of seasons. We’re just hoping that the coming winter is not bitter cold like last year. Have a great weekend.
Our anti-virus software is nagging us to renew even though we still have several weeks left. I hate being nagged, especially by computers. I understand the subscription-based model for certain products. But the reminders are still annoying. I will renew or find another product before it expires. I don’t need to be reminded every logon. Anyway, have a great weekend.
The problem with the camera is that the dial is worn and won’t stay in the selected mode. And the camera “resets” whenever the mode is changed. I could understand having the problem when the device is handheld. But it still happens even when it’s sitting on a tripod. It’s just old and worn. Anyway, sorry for the reruns. Have a great weekend.
I found and fixed the problem with images. There was nothing wrong with the lightbox plug-in. An old, incompatible sidebar widget was crashing the page before it totally loaded. So, the code to overlay photos in the same window rather than opening in a new wind wasn’t running. Everything is fixed now and it actually didn’t take as long as I was expecting. Have a great last weekend in October.
I was working
most all of the night making a schedule that I found out afterwards wasn’t real. I was (and still am) very unhappy about the “misunderstanding”. Especially since the date which wasn’t really a requirement was clearly stated in email. Nothing to be done now except have a nice relaxing weekend and catch up on my sleep. Sadly, there is no lesson to be learned and applied in the future.
One day earlier this week, I stopped by the optometrist and had my glasses adjusted. It’s amazing how much better I see when the lenses are property aligned. Progressive lenses are great, unfortunately; they aren’t the best for my lifestyle. Particularly since being extra careful with frames doesn’t blend well with being active.
Anyway, have a great weekend.
I made a purchase online in Euros recently. I was amazed how easy the transaction was. Technology has really come a long way. I even received a slightly more reasonable exchange rate than I was expecting. The world is much more connected than it used to be. And, we’ve got our own little digital home on the web to add to the variety.
Anyway, have a great weekend.
