I'm contemplating a change in how I do my personal website and blog. I currently use a CMS which there is nothing really wrong with. But I can't help but think perhaps there is a better way that fits with how I work. 🤔

Looking through some files on my computer and caught myself mentally visualizing their size by the number of floppy disks they would consume.

Yes I do indeed run Ubuntu Touch on my phone. :D

I'm currently refactoring a bunch of code I just wrote because I can't decide if it's either too ugly or not ulgy enough. :p

The first day of using my Nexus 5 running Ubuntu Touch went well (as I expected it to). I needed to slip out of a few habits, and I found a couple of small things with a couple of apps.

Overall, though, it didn't take too much effort to adapt to Ubuntu Touch. Then again, it's not my first time around the block with it

Heh wow I'm finding a lot of old dead gnu social related bookmarks. :(

Fixing up my home network this weekend. I wonder if it will kill me in my sleep.

I'm finding it pretty hard to be productive today.

I should say that my preferences lean towards ubports (Ubuntu Touch) but alas I don't yet have a device for it that I can rely on as my primary phone.

In other news my growing irritation with Android has prompted me to give Sailfish another go, this time on the Sony Xperia X. So far it seems to be working better than the last time I tinkered with it. I have my reservations but I'll put the time in and see how things turn out after a day or two.

I'm doing that thing again where I want to post something but I'm not sure what so I'll just ramble on until I hit send.

I've moved all of my personal source repositories out of Gogs and into a new GitLab instance. Extracting my issues out of Gogs was more painful than it should have been but I got them out. Much happier now with the new setup.
