Notes from my week.
- Did a proper fresh install of Windows 11 on my desktop. Hopefully this will clear up some of the lingering issues I was having, probably from changing hardware quite a bit over the past year or two.
- One of the primary uses for my Windows desktop is running my Plex server. Getting this set up after reformatting was actually pretty easy since I now keep the Plex server files on a separate drive. All I needed to do was add a Windows registry key.
- Trying out Fig. Looks cool so far.
- Our kids got their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. It wasn’t perfect, but it went better than we expected (and certainly better than their drive-thru flu shots last month).
