Obligatory I’m Still Alive post

It’s almost a running joke at this point, but I’m still alive! COVID hasn’t killed me yet, and we haven’t been plunged into a nuclear winter; so yay!

I have no idea what I’m doing with this site, other than keeping it up as beacon of hope that I may one day find the motivation and willpower to upload some monumental project that will change the world. I did upgrade the server to the latest LTS release of Ubuntu, as well as the latest version of WordPress. I’m hoping I can at least update some things, and post some new content; but as you know I’ve made that promise many times over the past 15 years. I can’t say it’s for the lack of time, because I have plenty of time after work.

Anyway, I hope everyone else is doing great, and if you’re still checking up on this site from time to time I thank you.

I fixed the contact form

I finally got around to fixing the contact form that’s been broken for about a year. When I moved hosts I never got around to setting up a mail server so that my server could send outgoing emails. I finally got Postfix installed and configured, however while attempting to get email to work on the server I realized that PHP was horribly misconfigured, and that I was using an obsolete version of Ubuntu that had reached its end-of-life phase. So, after doing a dist upgrade and reinstalling PHP7, I’m back up and running; hopefully nothing is horribly broken now.
