I’ve been listening to podcasts for the better part of the last 10+ years. There have been many that have come and gone, and for sure I’ve enjoyed them all. There is however 1 podcast that currently remains on my must listen to list. That is Security Now with Steve Gibson, hosted by Leo Laporte. If there is one podcast that I still can’t manage to miss it Security Now. It get’s pretty deep but also has enough light aspects that even non-geeks can get something out of it. Anyone I know that uses the Internet should give it a listen.

My daughter knows exactly how to send email on our Chromebooks and managed to do so, sending an email to my wife, without any prior direction from me. #kids #technology #parenting #gmail #email #education To provide some context, our home network and devices are all pretty well locked down and managed. Our 7 & 9 year old’s don’t have complete free reign to do whatever they want, at least without bounds. Additionally, their elementary school uses Google for Education and they get school email addresses starting at 3rd grade. My kids have experience and access to a lot of technology, both at school and at home. I’m a pretty big tech geek, given I’ve been a programmer and general IT person for the past 25…
These days I’m sporting an HP Chromebook 13 G1 which has mostly been a good machine. Seems like even with 8GB of RAM I still end up with some freeze ups when I’m plugging in or unplugging my USB-C dock. It’s rather frustrating but fortunately Google Chrome is designed to recognize abrupt closes and can recover. I used to run in developer mode but now since I can run Android apps I’m using Termux with a Linux shell and Neovim as my IDE. I’m still working out the best setup for Neovim but so far it’s serving me well. So back to the premise of this post and the main image. If I had the finances to support it I’d want my next machine to…
I have been on #Mastodon since 2018 after exploring #POSSE and the #IndieWeb so I’ll be curious to see what comes of the seemingly mass exodus of #Twitter users coming into the Mastodon realm. #WordPress #SocialMedia
So a few days ago a came across an article about a different app, for iOS, that had the intent on monitoring and setting up some boundaries when it comes to smartphone use. This app was one that had been previously reviewed, and recommended, for Android devices. I’m giving this a try, as I’m trying to do better with putting the technology aside and actually “being there” my family. The smartphone has it’s benefits, but like anything there needs to be a balance.

Working parents everywhere, especially remote workers, could identify with the humorous embarrassment of the situation. Even those who have had pets interrupt Skype calls know the feeling. You want to… via Hacker News Question: Developers with kids, how do you skill up? — WordPress Tavern I’ve had many discussions with one of my good friends and fellow developers on this very subject. The key is keeping it all in balance and managing the priorities. It is tough sometimes, and I have to realize that I can’t do it all, but I also have to keep in mind that I can accomplish…
After some conversation with others on #Mastodon about other caching issues with #ActivityPub & #WordPress it was revealed that it came down to the Accept headers being received by requests to the caching services. The caching services could be things like #Cloudflare or web servers such as #OpenLiteSpeed, or even WordPress caching plugins. In my case I use the OpenLiteSpeed web server caching and I started digging into how caching works in OpenLiteSpeed and how I could fix it for my WordPress site.
