Weekend Wrap-up

  • Installed Windows 10 on all of the laptops in the house, then turned off as much of the "phone home" nonsense as possible and got rid of all of the Live Tiles.

  • Upgraded the URI! Zone webserver to Apache 2.4 and PHP 5.6 (PHP used solely for the Wiki). This task was made more efficient by THE CLOUD, which allowed me to spin up a second copy of the webserver in an A/B configuration and make all of my mistakes without affecting availability for the low cost of $0.052.

  • Had Wegmans sushi for dinner on Friday.

  • Started watching The Man in the High Castle and am roughly 55% interested after 3 episodes.

  • Tried out the new Hearthstone adventure, League of Explorers.

  • Went to an office party of mostly old FGMers (where "old" denotes the last 10 years and "ancient" would have denoted earlier) at Praveena's house. Met Eric B's 1-year-old, Cruz.

  • Finished my Christmas shopping, all online.

  • Put up Christmas lights, inside and out, and fluffed the fake tree for eventual ornament hanging. The outdoor decorations look rather like a diorama for UFO-driven cattle abductions, rather than the staid monochromaticism of yore.
