It’s Sunny Today… and Other Random Stuff

May 11, 2012

Blabber

The sun has finally made an appearance today. It’s been MIA for about a week now, maybe more. Wow, it feels good.

I went to a dinner a few weeks ago. The folks at the table were chatting about how some of them were Vitamin D deficient. One young lady said that when her doctor told her she had a deficiency, she looked at him like a deer in the headlights. Her retort was, “I live in Central New York. Doesn’t everyone here have a Vitamin D deficiency??” That made us all laugh. Central New York is notorious for its lack of sunshine. I read one weather study that said about 2/3 of our year is overcast.

After being hacked mercilessly for months, I installed a new WordPress security plugin. (Well, a couple of them!) I don’t want to give out the names because I don’t want the hacker, if he’s a devoted reader, to know what I am using. (If you want to know, leave a comment and I’ll email you). I am very, very impressed with the plugins. They monitor my server for activity, and tell me when someone is trying to hack in– trying to guess my login username and password, trying to scan my site for vulnerabilities, etc. Needless to say, I’m getting a lot of alerts. Some may be false positives but some are downright scary. I’ve had quite a number of hackers attempting to guess my login details. I have to tell you hackers– YOU’LL NEVER BREAK IN. NEVER. Go get your own dang blog. :blammo:

Do you all like the custom smilies feature I included in the comment form? Man, I love smilies. :fuuds:I have a whole stockpile but I don’t know if I should add them. I don’t want to overwhelm the comment form!

Every now and then, I switch keyboards and mice. Because I am at the computer all day, I tire of using the same peripherals day after day. So every couple of weeks, I do the big switcharoo, for variety. My daughter, who is also on the computer all day (chip off the old block, I guess), is also doing the switcharoo now. We’ve decided to trade keyboards every so often. I think we’ve probably started the first of it’s kind in computer peripherals: musical keyboarding. Ha!

Lawns can have potholes, you know that? I stepped in one while carrying groceries from the car to the house, and my shocks and struts groaned in response. My spine went a little wonky. I haven’t had back pain like that in a long time, but I was too tired to get out of bed and take pain relief. So I got a lousy night sleep. Dumb potholes!

Have a good weekend, friends. Watch the potholes, scare the hackers, get some sun. :mrgreen:
