I’m not sure I’d be in a huge rush to get Dad to start using nicotine patches since he’s already taking medication for it - though I wonder if the side effects are comparably better. Study finds nicotine safe, helps in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s
On the plus side, I’ve figured out my hosting problems. Now I just need to do some stuff that I have been putting off. I have 2 websites up-and-running that I feel like on a more stable hosting platform, which means I need to get back into making webpages and whatnot. Really, it is a good chance for me to experiment with code that I don’t get the opportunity at work: TypeScript, Identity Management, and artwork.
I’m not terribly pleased to announce that some of my development has little to show for it. My hosting provider seems to be blocking ports yet again and my websites aren’t accessible outside of my own ISP. Just because I don’t have a business connection doesn’t mean that I can have my ports blocked. All traffic is to be treated equally and I should be able to use those ports however I see fit - so long as it isn’t harmful.
I’ve made it to day two, made a small amount of progress, and have hope for some way to get the site shaped up. I want to get together some layout designs using one of the Adobe tools, but it seems like a bunch doesn’t make it particularly easy. I’m not sure where correctly to start. I at least need to make a logo and come up with a color scheme.
Well, it is now 2018, and I’m trying to get my websites back up and running as a playground for my brain dribbles. I’ve been in a rut for some many years as far as work, weekends spent programming or tabletop gaming, and sitting around doing little for legacy - I need to get my ducks in a row now else I’ll have nothing to show for it. It’s obnoxious having the urge to do stuff in spurts per Bipolar Disorder.
