Orriginally this was a comment on the Yoast Post about Why to Use the Block Editor, but their comment form doesn’t tell you how long they can be, doesn’t tell you how long it is, so this will be the extent of the comment I will leave, with what will be a, “you need to […]

Mastodon Setup (hopefully final update)

Today I finally found out how to generate log files.  They are “less than ideal” but they are good enough that I figured out what the main problem was and it was a typing mistake.  I had (and I’m not sure how this happened): spotlight When what it should have been was: stoplight This was […]

Mastodon Setup – More information

Last night (about 23 hours ago apparently) I shared about setting up a Mastodon instance, and that things were kind of working but not really.

Haven’t said anything here for a while.  I had been meaning to create a new podcast episode a while ago, and I was hoping to be comfortable saying that the first functional version of the Autism Jobs site was ready.  But currently neither of those things can be said.

Servers (VPS) have been “shrunk”…

As of today I have started running all of our machines (virtual private servers) on “smaller instances” in part to save money, but further because I think that for what we have been doing, that running them on the size of server that they had been running on was a bit of overkill.

Autism Jobs development
