The wife and I went to the 1:15AM showing of Rogue One (which is the best Star Wars since the first one, IMHO) and came out to freezing rain. I love our in BFE, and by the time we reached the North outerbelt in Columbus, the highways were already a bit tricky. So we headed to the in-laws' to crash for a bit before h3ading home. And by then, my phone was too drained to power up at all, and I was too lazy to pull out a notebook to post that Rogue One was excellent. Highly recommend.

edit: I've installed WP Super Cache to help with speed issues. Hopefully it'll help with Apache stability as well, since I think it was excessive load causing that issue.

It's been so long since I've blogged on any type of regular basis that I initially found it quite difficult to even choose a random link to post. But as time goes by, I've found it easier and easier to do, and have found creating original content quite enjoyable.
Also, I've found the performance of the web server to be a bit lacking. I'm considering either moving it over to a Linux machine with the same specs, or possibly moving it over to a free web hosting company that I've used before.
I'm not 100% sold on the DarkEQ theme that I took so long to convert. I like the color scheme, but the font may be a bit small. For anyone reading this on the full website (the mobile theme is quite different) I'd like to hear some feedback.
I'm quite impressed with BuddyPress, which converts the site into a full-blown social media platform. I'd like some thoughts on additional fields to add that anyone who signs up might like added to profiles. Things like DOB, gender, favorite movie, etc.
Finally, should I add IRC-like chat to the site like I had done quite some time ago? Seems like it might be a good addition with the social aspects that have been added.

It feels like just yesterday that I was running a part-time BBS on her 286 computer with 2400 baud modem. A few years later, and I was babysitting her children and decided to chat with some of the users of her own BBS while the children were sleeping. This is how I met my wife.
I miss you, Angie. I can't believe you're gone. Thank you for everything you did for me while you were here.

A week in to December, and linking to Wil Weaton again. This time it's because he's asking for Arduino and Raspberry Pi project ideas, and I really want to see what people post in his comments. Thought my few readers might be interested as well ;)
