You heard me, I joined a cult and bought a smartwatch.
So far November is looking better than most of October. My back is finally starting to straighten itself back out. Despite having worked the last two months with what was essentially a slipped disc or “thrown out” back…it’s not hurting as much to walk, sleep, breathe, eat, pee, or laugh. It still hurts, but at a more tolerable level. I also somewhat figured out the problems with the imagehost and I jumped ship to Verizon (Wireless).
I hurt; and I mean an extreme amount of severe pain. I “fixed” the imagehost, but not really. And other stuff.
At some point the idea of hosting your own recursive DNS was a widely talked about subject.
