Things got off to an interesting start today. I was rocking and rolling some code development instead of writing the opening missive of the day. That means here after recording the penultimate episode of Coffee with Nels I sat down to begin the writing activity for the day. This switcheroo does have the added benefit of some extra caffeine. I’m probably going to spend some extra time today writing some more code. It is one of those days where my mind is really focused on the next steps for this particular package of code.
This morning I had some thoughts about maybe doing a refresh of my main computer system. That series of thoughts quickly dissipated. Custom computer building has gotten more complex over the years. At least, it feels like things have gotten more complex. It might be getting easier at some point here in the next couple of years . Within my current computer setup two potential changes are possible. First, I might swap out the hard drives at some point for larger ones depending on how much video editing I end up doing over the next year. Second, now that the price of the RAM this system uses has gone down it might be time to add more. None of that required me to put on my thinking hat this morning to get going.
This week I tried enabling ads on the weblog and it turns out I just don’t like the placement. Apparently, the advertisements when enabled show up above or below and are very large. Right now I’m not willing to leave those running on the old weblog. They have been turned off, but maybe I’ll do some testing on them again later this year. Based on volume it is not a big deal to turn them off or on for that matter. Right now that type of monetization scheme is not material to this effort to engage in daily weblog writing. For the last few days at the start of the day I have been sitting down to actively write. It’s a pure stream of consciousness exercise at this point. It may have some direct aim at writing about things that are happening, but that is not a disruptive guide to creating content at this point.
