πŸ›« Off to the Bay Area to kick off a project with an amazing customer. Explosive growth, incredible technology, and limit-pushing volume. Looking forward to helping them achieve their mission! ☁️ πŸš€

 

We haven’t had a real TiVo in our home for years, but we still call fast forwarding through commercials β€œba-doop ba-dooping.”

 

Ready to enjoy a night with Stephen Colbert at the Dolby Theatre with Lacey. Whee! 🎭

 

I’m drinking a cocktail out of a ridiculous looking tiki cup by a pool on the roof of a building in Downtown Los Angeles. Yup. This works for me. πŸ—ΏπŸ”₯🍹

 

Wearing my New Zealand All Blacks rugby jersey today. Kiwis are some of the friendliest, most optimistic, and joyful people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. I mourn with them today! All should be free to worship without fear. πŸ™β€οΈπŸ₯β˜ͺ️

 

Made a delicious keto-friendly Shepherd’s Pie for dinner this evening. Cauliflower mash on top! πŸ‘πŸ₯§

 

My review of the musical β€œCats” - this video for two and a half hours, but with people in fuzzy unitards. The end. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FiEw1jcLztA

 

Ooh, fun, an SDN startup pitch deck! I haven’t seen one of those in a while.

 

Moved into a new office today, and there are lots of great improvements, but the one I'm most excited about? We have real coffee! No more K-Cup swill for me. β˜•πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’₯

 

<p>@EddieHinkle I’m not familiar with any Star Wars films prior to Episode IV. Are you sure they made prequels? </p>

 

This was a great primer episode for sous vide beginners! I’ve been cooking sous vide for ages, and I still learned an amazing new soft poached egg technique. Worth a watch.

For Micro.blog users using micromemories to create an "On This Day" page, I've added some clarification to the README for users with custom themes – https://github.com/cleverdevil/micromemories#requirements.

 

Hey, look, another episode of Two Dads Talking! - https://twodads.fm/2019/02/28/episode-i-made.html

 

@benwerd Two thoughts: 1. Micro dot blog is a great, IndieWeb-friendly platform that is accessible to consumers. Not fully there yet, but a good model. 2. I like the idea of something like serverpilot.io, which separates the underlying infrastructure from the management.

 

So happy to have fixed the family iMac. After some research, I think I’m going to dive in and replace the hard drive with an SSD to extend the life of this machine a few more years. It’s a shame that I’m stuck on High Sierra, though.

 

I have restored the family 2011 iMac to service, running macOS High Sierra, the last supported version of macOS on this hardware. Hopefully this holds us for a few more years. I am considering replacing the internal drive with an SSD, though...

 

My daughter Colette has been in nearly a dozen musical productions over the last two years, and has been working so hard to improve. Today, she was given the part she was angling for in her next production, and is absolutely over the moon. So am I! Very proud daddy πŸ˜€

 

Okay, I have a plan with this iMac... it appears to be hanging while loading kernel extensions. I'm gonna boot into recovery mode, mount the drive read/write, blast all of them from /Library/Extensions *and* /System/Library/Extensions, and then re-install macOS. Wish me luck πŸ˜ƒ

 

If I can’t get the iMac to recover, thinking I’ll just run Plex Media Server on the Synology. It’s not a powerful NAS and won’t support transcoding. Hopefully it’ll be good enough for home usage. I have a powerful cloud server mirror that I can use if I need transcoding.

 

The ancient family iMac is on the fritz and I am unsure if it'll recover. The good news is that I've now moved my homebridge server over to my Synology NAS, so that's working again. Sadly, the iMac was my home Plex Media Server. Still not sure what to do about that...
