Notes from my week.
- Updated the Tallgrass Church website to Drupal 9. During the update process, I got stuck on an error telling me the sync directory wasn’t set up. It turns out that they just changed the format needed in the settings file.
- Trying out the Warp terminal app. It does a few things that I really like, but something about it still doesn’t quite feel like a native Mac app (I even had to double check it wasn’t an Electron app). I’ll be interested to see how it progresses.
- Started a trial of Apple Arcade. The kids seem pretty excited to have more games to play on their iPads.
- Our cat had to have his leg amputated this week, and we thought we came pretty close to losing him (again). He seems to be doing quite a bit better now though.
- NaBloPoMo — November “National Blog Posting Month” challenge.
