It’s that time… [UPDATED]

HOWDY, HUMANS! (and those of you who identify as something else…)

Tomorrow, WordPress is pushing out a new upgrade, and I guess I should be around here to make sure it doesn’t break anything.  While it is less troublesome than an average Windows 10 update, there are cases where plugins or the theme framework might cough and gag.  If it does, I will give it an attitude check and that should do it.

I am sure that at least a few of you are currently furloughed from work or laid off, and are hunkering down because of a state order to do so.  This is rough for a lot of people.  Not even the siren call of free, socialist money is a substitute from going to the ‘daily grind’ and actually earning  a paycheck.

I’m fairly lucky, I have almost three months of PTO to use up before I even think about filing for unenjoyment.  I probably won’t have to file, since I am going to be going back to work on Wednesday.  Apparently, I am ‘essential’.

I’ve been called worse.

But tomorrow, my dance card is free.  I have a half-dozen websites to upgrade for different folks, and somehow this one got back on my list.  So if you arrive here tomorrow and you get a nagging ‘maintenance’ screen, that would be me, dinking around here.

In the mean time, you can consider this an open thread.  I thought I would include a funny little song in hopes that I can get a snicker out of some of you.

UPDATE 03312020 @ 16:44:

The upgrade went off without a hitch.  I have a couple other things to check in the morning, and then I’m outta here until the next time.

Right now it is more real for me..and Ive never felt more alone. Was married 23 years and her absence is keenly felt. It took three fucking years to find the strength to leave home and go this. I get the need I get the just grates on me. My freedom and my rights have been taken away… Read more »
