New Year's Resolutions.

I do this about every year, and this year is no different. 

Lose Weight. No shit, everyone has this goal. This year isn't spectacularly different from any of the other years I've tried and failed to lose weight, but I figure the battle has to be keeping my waistline in check a little bit, right? 

Blog more. This blog is severely neglected, and blogging about my everyday goings-on is a good way to keep my memory as good as possible... which is still bad, by the way. But every little bit helps.

Switching from iPhone to Android

I've been an iPhone guy since the very first iPhone. I fell in love with the interface, the usability, the functionality. I was an iPhone lover before the App Store, before the SDK. I paid $600 for that phone, plus ETF fees from Verizon to switch over to AT&T, the only carrier at the time who had the iPhone. I've owned every version of the iPhone. But then something happened.

Digital Ocean and Drupal

I've used Drupal in many situations and on many servers throughout the world, but I'm having a love affair with Digital Ocean in a big way. Learning more about the command line has been a goal of mine for a while, and diving head first into Digital Ocean, embracing the terminal, and falling head-first in very basic server management. Getting Drupal up and configured on Digital Ocean provided a few difficulties, but now that I've overcome them, I'm a pretty happy camper. Here's what I learned thoughout the way.
