I had a doctor’s appointment today. It was uneventful which is always good except my follow-up appointment is scheduled for 2020. As someone who has spent more time writing “19”, having things scheduled in the third decade of the 2000s … Continue reading
We don’t like the short days that accompany it; but one thing we enjoy about fall is that there are lots of rowing races. There are a lot of interesting places to go and people to meet as the end of rowing season approaches. We hope that the warm weather lasts and that we will be able to row for a long time. But, if we don’t, we will at least have good memories to sustain us over the winter.
I noticed when I was adding tags to this post that I had accidentally created a new category because of a typo. That’s way more frustrating than it would seem because there isn’t a way to merge tags despite all the useless and unnecessary features that have been added to WordPress over the past few years. They’ve added a primitive built-in photo editor when lots of external photo editing packages are readily available. Yet you still can’t manage categories. But, at least, its Friday. Have a great weekend.
I may have been a bit too optimistic last week about our camera. The reader didn’t recognize the memory card when I tried to download the pictures from our photo session. Finally, after much inserting and removing the memory card and plugging and unplugging of the card reader from the computer I was able to read and download our pictures. I’ll re-format the card and hope for smoother downloading next week. We did get some pictures we like.
After being on the road or having something to do at a specific time almost every weekend this summer; we are looking forward to a “free” Saturday and Sunday. We still have things that we want to do. However, we really don’t have anything that we need to do at a particular time. We like being busy during the summer. We can sit inside all winter. But, it is nice to have an occasional break. Have a great weekend.
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.
