How to Install Craft CMS on a Digital Ocean Server

I run this blog on Wordpress, but I'm always interested in WP alternatives, and one of the biggest right now seems to be Craft CMS. This post is not about debating Craft CMS vs. Wordpress though - I just wanted to document the process of installing it on a Digital...

The Quincy Jones Vulture Interview

This Quincy Jones interview is great, super entertaining. There is one thing I wanted to write about though, and since I wound up writing a lot of it out in a message, I figured I'd do it here: In the interview, Jones talks about a bunch of stuff like who actually...

In 3 Days This Domain Will be 20 Years Old

I don't really have anything to say about it, but I know I'll forget about this by Saturday, so I'm just going to post now. Hold up is there any way I could ask for like, cash gifts. Oh and the only reason I thought to look this up a week or two ago is because Paul...

Does Bacon Come From a Pig?

Yesterday, I did an Instagram story for my online store. At one point, for no real reason, I put a pack of bacon in front of the camera, and I said "I don't know if I should eat this bacon, it was 3 packs for $7, which seems too cheap, but I mean, it all comes from...

Youtube Idea

I don't think I'll ever get around to doing this, so I guess I'll just write it here: You know how Youtube channels sometimes have celebration videos like "woo we got 5000 followers, wow!" and whatnot - I think it'd be funny to create a channel, and make the first...

One of the Worst Topics for a Blog Post

I think back when blogs were conquering the Earth, a common slam on them was that a lot of people would just write "Sorry I haven't updated, I will soon!", and then maybe a little more detail, but not much. I keep holding myself back from doing that, because I have...

What Eggs Like

Sometimes I remember I should be posting and I feel bad, but then I think about all the really terrible posts I don't tweet, and I feel better, responsible even. That's me, a good, responsible blogger, not posting a bunch of crap just to put in hours. Now however,...

The Most Expensive Mistakes When Starting a Blog

Sorry, this title is probably misleading or sounds clickbaity. I'm not trying to do a clickbait - I'm actually trying to save all my clickbait karma for when I need it. My plan is that this blog is going to be thousands of posts about uhh.. whatever the point of this...

US/Canada Import Place

I just remembered a sort of weird thing. For those who don't know, I'm in Canada. You can order almost any American item, and find most of them in stores too, but now and then you run into a brick wall. For various reasons (some dumb, some logical), you just can't get...

How I Back up My Personal Files

A friend of mine sent me a question about backing up personal files. She said this: What is the best way to buy long-term cloud storage that is private, secure, resistant to destruction? Archival storage for personal files... maybe 1TB total, more if it's affordable I...

What Actually Is Machine Learning?

Now that I've posted two things about going to the ML conference, I've had two people I know ask me about machine learning. For all the attention and press that the field has received, it seems that a lot of people still just don't quite understand what it is. I...

Driving Confrontations

Driving Confrontations

This is off subject, but I just wrote the title for this post, Driving Confrontations, and is it just me or does it sound like it could be the name of a prog-rock album? I'm picturing an album cover now with three cars that have been outfitted with space shuttle...

Instagram Spam-following Experiment

I've only mentioned this to a few people, but I've been doing an Instagram experiment for about a month. It involves my normal account, as well as a new fake account I created. I didn't come up with any really amazing insights or discoveries, and I wasn't sure what to...

Deer Family

Deer Family

I went to a conservation area two days ago, just for a walk, and I only took my new film camera (from this post). I've been to this area before, and it's kind of cool, but I didn't think it was that amazing. After walking around for about 45 minutes, I came around a...
