• Pictures from last Tuesday.

    OK so I finally got the pictures from last week out of my caregiver’s phone. well, she sent them to me in a text message, and I was going to try to email them to me from there. However, turns out there’s actually no way to do that that I know of. Anyway, after trying to deal with iCloud drive and files and such, I just had her email them to me lol.

  • RSS reader questions.

    Can anyone recommend me an RSS reader that doesn’t limit feed items? I was using a Miniflux instance last year, until the service I was hosting with pivoted. I’d like it to be web-based if possible. Oh, and I don’t want my RSS reader to look like Twitter, but that’s just me, I’m old-fashioned, I guess.

  • My case ended today.

    This morning Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences for the murders of his Wife and Son. This was a short sentencing hearing, the state did not bring fourth any victim impact witnesses. However Judge Neuman took his time issuing the sentence. He gave Murdaugh the opportunity to say something twice, and twice he said he was innocent. He asked him about the expression “oh what a tangled web we weave,” which he used during his testimony. Neuman asked Murdaugh what he meant by that. Murdaugh said, “I lied and continued to lie.” Neuman then said “when will it end?” earlier, a jurror gave an interview to Good morning America. He said it only took about 45 minutes to an hour for them to actually make a decision. [www.youtube.com/watch

  • The jury in SC V. Murdaugh reached a verdict a couple hours ago, after deliberating just 2 hours and 50 minutes. He was found guilty on all counts. This is the first verdict I’ve done with a caregiver on shift.

  • The jury is viewing the scene in SC V Murdaugh. The defense requested this on Monday. Closings will start after they get back from their trip to the property in question. Closings are my weakness. I usually always fall asleep during them. No, not openings, for some reason. Since I actually want to watch these closings, I’ll definitely be staying awake.

  • Tomorrow will be closing arguments in the case I’m following, SC V Murdaugh. Let’s see how long they go, the judge didn’t put a limit on the time for argument. Let’s just hope they don’t take like 4 or 5 days, like you know, that 1995 case.

  • Well I’ve been up since like 4 this morning. Had coffee already. Went to bed fairly early last night.

  • 3 Good Things February 24th.

    OK, I finally got over here to post 3 good things. Did it on the Mastodon instance I’m migrating to earlier. Yeah, I picked one yesterday, and I’m already migrating, lol. 1. Group Bible study. 2. Lots of food. 3. Sleep, because I didn’t get much last night. Woke up with a headache and was up all night.

  • Well, I did get up for the start of the case. Had coffee already. Just have had a headache all morning so decided not to post until break. Thankfully the headache is gone.

  • OK, I posted #3goodthings over on Mastodon, but almost forgot to post them here. 1. Morning coffee. 2. Shopping at Costco. 3. Finally picking a Mastodon instance.

  • Well, yesterday I started the 40 days of Lent by giving up candy. My church does not participate in Lent, however I’ve wanted to do so for a long time now. For some reason, Most Evangelical/pentecostal churches don’t partake. I’m not sure why this is.

  • Everyone in the Fediverse seems to be stuck in 2020. It’s 2023 now!!

  • I finally picked a Mastodon instance! If anyone wants to follow me, I’m ladyhope@mstdn.social. Some people post3 good things over there every day. Not sure if I’ll have time to do that, but it’s something I’d like to start doing here too.

  • Alex Murdaugh is on the stand. We’re in a break, he’s under direct by his defense attorney, Jim Griffon. Unfortunately I didn’t get to do all my shopping yesterday. Couldn’t go multiple places in one day, because we had to hit the pharmacy. Will have to do some of it again today.

  • Well I got up a little later than I expected. Alex Murdaugh is going to be testifying for himself today.

  • Everyone on Mastodon, I have yet to pick an instance. Any recommendations? Twitter says they’re dropping external clients. I’ll still use it somewhat via the web interface and RSS, I wrote a post about that on my known blog, about how I’ll be tweeting like I did in 2007.

  • Cathy Russon, the producer of Law and Crime Network, the pool network operator of the Murdaugh case, did an interview for LA times. However I think the case draws more comparisons to the extremely famous 1995 case I revisited last summer, instead of the Durst case I followed in 2021. Although I thought this trial had the potential to last that long. Durst lasted 4 months. www.latimes.com/entertain…

  • Good morning everyone. I’m up early because I went to bed really, really early lol. I’m also up early to follow the case of SC V. Alex Murdaugh, which actually doesn’t start until 6:30 pacific, and it’s only almost 5. I’m still perplexed as to why Micro.blog didn’t import all my known posts when I did the RSS import. It only took the ones from when I was here back in 2020/2021.

  • Well, I'm back.

    well, I’m back here on micro.blog. My host is in the process of shutting down it’s servers. I got free hosting for a couple years, which was nice. I even ran a Miniflux instance for a while. That was a lot of fun. Wish I could still do that!! The service was a startup so doing a lot of pivoting!! First it was a service that was going to self host for you, and manage all that. Then he wanted to build a blog platform. Now doing something else serverless.

  • Pretty soon, this is going to be a Known instance. I’m sending domains over to the same service that manages my Miniflux instance. He’s going to set up WP and Known instances for me.

  • I’m beginning to think Kill the Newsletter isn’t a great solution for converting Newsletters to RSS. I’ve had problems wiwth it twice in a row now. This causes Miniflux to give me a bunch of feed errors I can’t fix when a site is down. This annoys me a lot, because I don’t like broken feeds. Is there a better solution? I know Substack supports RSS, but if you’re not using Feedbin, Feedly, inoreader is there a good solution?

  • No, Google is not actually bringing back reader!!


    Shoot me now, OK?? I mean really?? No, Google isn't reviving RSS, because it isn't a living thing and doesn't need reviving. Not only that, but it's been around long after Google reader shut down.
    Most of us have found our RSS reader replacements by now. Not only that, but we're sticking with them. Google isn't bringing back reader, they're just putting back RSS in the browser. For heaven's sake, maybe they'll actually fix RSS preview in Chrome one of these days, OMG!!!
  • Wow, my router was giving me extreme fits a little bit ago. I couldn’t connect to the internet, it was saying it couldn’t obtain an IP address.It was working fine earlier today, and now not so much. I ended up bypassing it, and now I’m connected directly. It worked for a week, that’s it.

  • About my Miniflux instance.

    I’m having a service called cloudblast manage it for me. No, I have no affiliation with the service, other than the fact that I’m beta testing it. It’s a service that will install self hosted apps on their servers for you. They’re in charge of the maintanence of the apps, and you get to use them. Kind of like having a VPS, but not really. It’s gone extremely well these past 3 weeks or so. Although in the beginning, the instance did crash. I’ve wanted to set up an instance ever since the hosted version started archiving my unread items after 60 days last year. When I start paying for the service, I’ll probably ask for .more than what’s allocated already, when it comes to resources. Simply so that we can avoid any crashes in the future. Oh yeah, here’s a link to this most epic service. [[https://cloudblast.network]]

  • This is pretty epic, and I’d like to try it. larrysanger.org/2021/01/a…
