I just received replacement earpads for my Sony MDR 7506 headphones from Wicked Cushions. I don't think you could find a better set of replacement pads for 20 bucks.

This morning I decided to buy the 25th anniversary edition of Linux Journal for 6 bucks. 2 hours later, they decide to give it away for free.

My timing has ALWAYS been this impeccable.

They can keep the money, they deserve it.

Ok, glad I finally got that off my effin' chest.

Effin' human rant. 

Well, it was a good start at least. I deleted a bunch of email accounts but added a couple more in preparation for some heavy duty email list consolidation. ✉️

Net result for today is -5 email addresses on my domain.

You know you have an email problem when you have 19 accounts tied to your domain.

Time to purge.

Hey all, I'm new here. Looking forward to testing out Mastodon again. Been using Linux for well over a decade; wrote "openSUSE Linux Unleashed" awhile back. Who's using openSUSE here? .

It's not for everyone maybe, but I think handcoding a web site in html and css is less work than doing a comparable site in wordpress. Just text, links and image galleries, and a couple php tags so I can use one menu across all pages.

Maybe I'll think about a way to add a form eventually, but that's not important right now.

I'm pumped about my 1.2 second load time, and that's before I've optimized images.

I told my friend about it and she did not understand the joy this brings. 😆

Unfortunately, attempting to scan the interior pages would destroy the binding of the magazine.

My quest to collect the books that made me the hack programmer I am today is nearing completion

Philadelphia Flyers vs. L.A. Kings.

I love going to hockey games, just not when I need to get up at 4:15 the next morning. 🏒🏒

A couple years ago a fellow Trekkie I knew in high school got remarried and I had the DJ play this at her wedding reception. The confused looks from the non-Trekkies were priceless. 🖖

I dislike many things. For example, car shopping. Necessary evils are necessary. And evil.

That is all.

Both of my Instagram accounts are now deleted.

As soon as I am ready, I will most likely set up a pixelfed account, as well as divorcing my Flickr account from Yahoo.

Hoping that the January illnesses are just about done. Four adults and a toddler in close quarters makes for a nice game of "Tag, you're sick!"

I might even get in my first full work week of the year this week.

My social media diet for 2019 has begun in earnest...

2019 Roadmap:

* New gaming PC is up and running. ✔️

* Deleted my LinkedIn account. ✔️

Next up:

* Complete the reboot of website/blog.

* Reorganize my computer lair to accommodate new hardware.

* Prepare for eventual deletion of certain social media accounts.

Down the road:

* Lament about how little I actually accomplished.

Finally got GladOS-9000 outfitted with Ubuntu 18.10. Every game in My Steam library seems to be running fine.

It's going to be interesting working with Ubuntu after years of running opensuse.

Until I have the cash and space for dual monitors, I need to look into a simple DVI switch for my current setup.
