I got locked out of one of our servers due to a wayward firewall rule. The server was working perfectly. It just didn’t allow connections from the particular IP address I was using. It’s been fixed now. But it’s frustrating there are so many hackers out there that such things are required. Especially since I’ve been involved with computers long enough to remember the days when the internet was young and such extreme security measures were unheard of. Have a great weekend.
Monday was a return to the rainy weather that we had been experiencing for so long. Fortunately, it cleared in the evening and we were able to have a great row. Since I let the grass grow a little longer when its hot and dry, it recovers quickly so I’ll definitely need to cut it when it dries after a couple of days of rain. It will be a long day. But we much prefer long summer days outside to winder days indoors.
We did a sunset row today. The kind that you can only do in the middle of the summer. We were not in a hurry to get off the water and get our boat put away like in the fall when the sun is setting. It was a great start to the weekend which is forecast to be hot. Its supposed to cool off next week; but we are still hoping for some sun. Have a great weekend.
I took today off and had a three-day weekend. I’m trying to take a few more vacation days during the summer when its warm and sunny. It’s good to recharge during the winter months. But I can’t do as much outside. I’ll still take by Christmas vacation. But, otherwise, not as days in December as in the past. Today was one of those days that was good to be off instead. Have a great weekend.
We are finally on our much-anticipated summer vacation! Depending on the weather which is forecast to be
warm hot we will likely not be online very much. Hopefully we’ll be outside enjoying the summer. We would like to wish you a safe and happy Independence Day holiday in advance. And have a great weekend too.
Now that I’m not spending all my time working on our computer, we’ve ben able to relax and watch some of the World Cup. We’re not the sort of people who stay inside and watch the world go by. But, it’s nice to have something to do indoors while it’s so rainy. Unfortunately, we have a lot more time for such things than usual. Hopefully it won’t rain all week.
Today was a warm sunny day that seemed almost like summer. We haven’t had as many of them as we would like; but we really enjoy long sunny summer days. Especially the late sunsets that let us do more things in the evening. Our smart thermostat says that we barely used the air conditioner in May. We’re not anxious to spend “extra” money. But, we are really longing for pool weather. Right now, our swimming pool is basically an expensive decoration in the back yard.
