August 9 - A Few Things

First things first. Two comments were recently added to the blog:

Now. With the administrative thing taken care of I'll put pixels to screen and share the following:

I woke up at 7 this morning thinking “bike-a-ride”. So a quick snack and off I went. Down to the river where I pedaled into the rising sun. A perfect morning. I kept heading east until the trail ran out (two towns over), then started back.

I stopped to chat with a dog and his walker. An aged Golden and such a good boy. His former owner (regular Army) left for Korea where he could not bring the dog. Current owner loves the dog. A good boy but I think I already shared that.

Otherwise an uneventful trip. I got back to the ranch at 11:05, thought it was around 9:30. Time flies when you're having fun. I don't recall the mileage but it doesn't matter. My second trip on my Catrike 5.5.9 which is an absolute joy to ride.

Two of the web sites are up and running. The blog is running smooth as budda, the calendar software has a known problem. I can either downgrade a core web server software package or upgrade the calendar software. I don't have the gumption to do either right now. I have bigger fish to fry.

With the web server up and running I now turn to Kim's second laptop. I need to stuff a SSD into it, load a linux distro, then fiddle with a few settings. I'll let her test drive it until she's either satisfied or craving Windows. If she wants Windows I'll figure something out.

Once she's satisified with the laptop I'll turn to more physical stuff like the patio shed (which still needs work) or the basement (which definitely needs work). I'll probably interrupt those to work on the backup server. Oh, and Kevin's yard is due for a mowin'.

And don't forget… Floatzilla is on the 20th. I still haven't decided if I'm gonna trailer the mosquito magnet kayak or find a way to lash it to the roof of the van without it comin' off or breakin' anything.
