For a while now, I've had my iPhone setup to automatically speak a phrase anytime it detected Carplay being activated. I did it as a reminder to myself and others that safety is important.
So I took the plunge after putting it off for...years. Not sure what got me motivated to do this but I'm off of Ghost now.
I started using Ghost on November 19th of 2013, and here we are 9 years and 364 days later.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, move to Ubuntu.
I've started getting lazier and lazier when it comes to doing SysAdmin work, but don't misunderstand me here. That just means I want to automate myself out of the picture (mostly) and just get alerts if things aren't quite right.
One particular workflow I'd like to automate is patching my servers.
With the increased amount of video conferencing going on, I decided to dust off an old trick to 'spice' things up during the many video calls I am on.
This show-and-tell post is a little different than my last few. It didn't start with a 'I wonder if I can do X' but instead a 'UGH! I'm sick of having to disable the ad blocker every time my wife shops online'.
With my recent dive back into Pokemon Go, I decided to spend more time than I should on a completely silly BASH script.
A couple years ago (...I think...) for shits and giggles I set up a Google Adsense account.
I tried to make it as unobtrusive as possible and had the ads show up at the very bottom of the page. No side bars. Not popups about 'Hey, you have adblock on!' or the like.
In that time I have racked up about $10 bucks worth of ad revenue that I'm aware of. However, I never connected it to a wallet or whatever the hell the term is in Adsense, so I never cashed out.
This week I decided to delete the account, but according to the robots at Google my blog was deemed to be 'Scraped content'.
This is way out of date now
The information in this post is so out-dated that I wonder why I'm keeping it around. I guess I'm a digital hoarder...
