June Monthly Review

A look back at the past month.

  • Tallgrass Church + The Well: My church has been looking at the possibility of merging with another local church. We’ve been meeting together this month, and it seems to be going well.
  • Web hosting: Finished up transitioning to my new web host. I had been on DreamHost since 2005.
  • Server scripts: Wrote shell scripts for MySQL and file backups on my new web host.
  • Assistant director interviews: Spent a lot of time in open interviews for a few assistant director positions at work.
  • K-State DFS Surplus Property: Requirements gathering meetings continued.
  • Car battery: My car wouldn’t start after getting gas, so I had to get a new battery. It turns out the battery was quite old.
  • Dad’s birthday: Celebrated my dad’s birthday, the last of the many family birthdays in the spring and early summer for us.
  • K-State Zoom branding: Finished the new K-State Zoom landing page. Working around the limitations imposed by Zoom was frustrating at times.
  • Wichita: Made a weekend trip to Wichita. My mom took the kids for a couple days. My wife and I got to check out Lava & Tonic, a very good tiki bar.
  • Next.js Conf: Attended the virtual Next.js Conf, which turned out to be more of a product announcement than an actual conference.
  • K-State People Search: Had a meeting with Jan, David, Jon, and Kurt to talk about an upcoming K-State People Search project. David had some pretty solid wireframes that just need to be slightly tweaked.
  • K-State Admissions Representatives: Removed the military option from the K-State Admissions Representatives app. I also made a fix that prevents the user from selecting a state before the data finishes loading. This was causing the wrong schools to show up when a new state was selected quickly.
  • Team changes: Had what should be our final bi-weekly meeting with Jan. Kurt was hired as an assistant director, and he will lead a new team combining the Java team and the former web team.
