I really have no idea how to even start writing out all of things that I want to cover in this post. It’s been a bit of while since I’ve written anything, really (and one of the last programmatic post I wrote was sometime ago – and no, I don’t plan to stop the series).
Over the past few years, I’ve written about taking time off of social media during certain parts of the year. I still plan on doing that, but this post is a bit different because it’s going to cover a lot of things.
If you’re interested in how I’ve done this in the past, take a look:
With that said, I think I’m going to leave that there and move on to issues that are more relevant to the blog. Namely, an update as to what’s up, some thoughts I’ve had around this blog, and some changes I’m aiming to make in the near future.
I’m actually a fan of Safari for casually browsing the web. That browser coupled with 1Blocker makes it a solid alternative.
As far as Firefox is concerned, I still think it’s a fantastic browser but if you’re looking for a seamless experience between macOS and iOS 1Blocker alternative solution that I’ve been using for a few weeks.
The motivation for privacy (which I’ve previously shared) still stands but it may not be the same for you. I’m approaching it with the following attitude:
what I’m comfortable with using may not be the same for you (and vice versa),
and privacy and security are not terms that I use interchangeably.
That said, the rationale for using software like this alongside a browser that’s bundled with an operating system (remember when that was a big deal?) rather than a third-party browser is different.
Every year, I try to take the time off from Christmas to New Year’s to be with family and friends and this year is no different.
During my time off, I’ve spent a bunch of time with my family, seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (and it was great to share the experience with my kids to see the movie on the big screen!), and already spent some time with my in-laws to celebrate the holiday.
If you inherit a WordPress codebase, regardless of the age of the project, there may be a lot of context that you don’t have as to why certain decisions were made or how things were implemented.
This may include the server, infrastructure used to help power the site or the app, and other contextual information about the environment in which it was running.
This type of information can be server-related information, PHP version, database type, information that’s actually stored in the database especially if you do a database import, and so on.
Ideally, all of this is handed over but that’s not always the case. Anyway, say you attempt to start it up and then when you attempt to start up the application, not only does it not work but it either shows a white screen or displays a message about technical problems with your installation.
