I had originally planned to make a similar photo with a mixing console that I introduced to my students today but time ran out and I needed to get home before the kids bedtime so this was the closest thing I could find in my office.
Turns out the problem with webmentions was due to my new VPS not having the mb_string extension for php installed and that caused the semantic linkbacks plugin to fail which in turn caused the webmentions plugin to do as well.

I guess sometimes I just don’t want to be reminded about the fact that everything will eventually end. Not just me and everyone I’ll ever known, will know or interact with, but every living thing – the universe itself – will eventually and.
I’ve been putting off moving my main site from a shared host to a VPS for what feels like an eternity. I know I got to do it because it’ll make the site a lot faster and thereby making blogging more enjoyable.

I had planned to do a microcast per weekday now, but today there won’t be an episode. I’m just not in the mood for it, my brain is preoccupied with too many other things and I’m way too tired as well. Hopefully I’ll get back on schedule tomorrow.
I made an almost complete purge of my RSS subscriptions in FeedWrangler and moved most of the feeds to a river of news instead. Hope that it’ll make following blogs feel like less of a commitment and more like something fun.
