When I got these two bills out from the ATM in Washington earlier this year, the DXY index which shows the strength of the dollar was at 113.95, today the same strength is lower at 104.32.

They say crypto is “too” volatile.

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share a quick update about my blog. I recently decided to upgrade the underlying technology stack, which included upgrading the PHP version from 7.4 to 8.2 and upgrading the Laravel framework from version 7 to version 9.

While this process went smoothly overall, I did run into a few issues with certain packages and plugins that were incompatible with the newer versions. It took some time to troubleshoot and resolve these issues, but I am happy to report that everything is now running smoothly on PHP 8.2.

Overall, I’m really excited about the performance improvements and new features that come with these upgrades. I’m looking forward to exploring all that the new versions have to offer and continuing to provide a great experience for my readers.

Thanks for following along, and stay tuned for more updates from me in the future!

I think I am going to be able to write a new version/follow-up to this article soon.

I am leaning towards a new refusal this year, but we’ll see. This is one of the most challenging/exciting waiting games ever.

Am I the only one that when sees an available update to anything I HAVE TO do it before anything?

For example I enter to wrtite a post here on the blog and I see this:

Cannot write anything before I update.

Or I open VsCode and it has an available update (I use the Insiders edition with multiple updates per day). I HAVE to update it. Same with PhpStorm plugins.

So… am I the only one?

I ordered a WordPress t-shirt on March 7th. Arrived in Romania on April 1st, even though I paid for express delivery. Post is slow worldwide, but especially in Romania. It stayed in customs from the 1st of April until today, the 6th of April. Now it is on its route to my town, curious to see how much longer do I need to wait and how much do I have to pay for VAT and slow customs.

I’ve found the best Apple Watch band so far. It is not cheap but not too expensive also. It is a braided loop model, very comfortable.

I bought it from here.

Has anyone managed to use the WordPress mobile app to write posts on a blog with WPML? My Romanian blog and English blog are the same basically and I use WPML to show different content based on the domains.

I tried adding the English website to the mobile app but Jetpack sees the site as a duplicate of the Romanian one and ignores it.

On this occasion I cloned the WordPress iOS app locally to explore how that’s built, looks nice!

Hello, welcome to daddy's blog! You should know that you won't find any cartoons around. You've been warned!

I am going to try new things with my blog and the first amongst those things is the ability to share quick posts that are meant to be like a status update on social platforms.

I like owning my content so less posting on social media, and more posting on my own platform. Like the good old days.

Let’s go!

PS: How do those status updates look like are WIP.
