Not a lot of warm up time today. Need to go get a nice 100 for a few days in a row.
210/1000 calories on the bike.
An interesting thing about Facebook is that 10 years ago it prompted you “Paul is…” and then you just did a brief blurb. No news, no stories, limited photos. As a result I get blurbs like this from 10 years ago that I cannot really decode anymore.
I assume I was caught in a rainstorm of some type. Or maybe went running?
I finished reading “The First Law Series” recently. You can find info on Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/series/43644-the-first-law. I enjoyed the series for the most part. I panned & scanned on a lot of the battle pages but somehow I wound up liking the characters across this trilogy. We have an anti-hero that never quite gets his heart of gold. A berserker warrior who most of the time seems kind of old and crusty, and a heartless female warrior who was really well written I thought.
My gripes? The ending. It just left me cold and bored and wondering why do authors not partner with others? For instance I love Neal Stephenson’s writing but half the time his endings are just a huge let down (looking at you “Baroque Cycle”).
After many years of using the Reddle theme on my WordPress site I’ve decided to shift to the “famous”* P2. I want something light, easy, as simple to use as Facebook for example but of course I want to own/control/retain the data myself vs. having Facebook do it. Will anyone else show up to collaborate with me? Probably not. I’ve also thought about moving most of my content to a separate space and restricting access so I can enjoy the things I like about Facebook (discussions, photos, keeping up with distant/former friends) without the bad stuff.
Give me a shout if you’re interested in talking more about this.
