Hullo

Yes, I know. But me IRL has a lot going on. I’ve been doing a lot of home maintenance work lately, and not a lot of energy for things Internet-ish. Last weekend, along with the never-ending yardwork of Spring through Autumn, I managed to get nearly all of the bi-annual pressure washing done. This weekend, I did some sanding and started painting front trim. I got perhaps 60% of the way through. I might have finished today, but exterior painting and rain rarely mix well (or rather, mix far too well!).

So that’s waiting for another day. I have similar work to do on the back of the house, but that will be done over the next few weeks.

In what little spare time I do have, I’ve started exploring the recently released next version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. They’ve done some interesting things to manage the fact that we want the operating system to be stable yet secure, for a long, long time… and we also want the most secure, feature-full, and latest tools available to us to support modern workloads. Just for example, until recently, it was fairly difficult to get a supported recent version of PHP that would run on Red Hat. So, I’ve more to learn, which is always a good thing.
