Summer 2021 updates

July 21, 2021 — Gideon Mayhak

The past couple months flew by as Sarah and I have been getting settled into our new house. Weekdays have been filled with trips to Menards, and weekends have mostly been trips to see family. I don't want this blog to fall by the wayside completely, so here's a short recap of how things are going.

With the busyness of preparing for a move in a couple weeks, intentional music listening has fallen by the wayside as of late. Even so, I wanted to get a short one out about a few more discs in the collection.

After much procrastinating, I finally started writing this post while staying at our new house in Barron, WI. We haven't officially moved yet, but we took Sarah's spring break to drive up and take a closer look at this place we bought entirely from Virginia. I'm very thankful for my dad's willingness to go and look at the house and give an informed opinion before we made an offer. Cheers to Casey Watters and her team for all their help.

The release of this post was also delayed for a special appearance.

Anyway, we continue exploring the collection with a look at a handful of different bands.

For no particular reason other than I like the way it breaks up the artist groupings in my collection, we start the Ds with a single band (duo? group?). This is also a feeble attempt at posting more regularly by covering fewer albums at a time.

Using mod_md to manage Let's Encrypt certificates

February 11, 2021 — Gideon Mayhak

I've been using certbot to manage my Let's Encrypt certificates since I first started using them. Today, I switched to using mod_md to simplify the whole process and remove one dependency from my setup.

I'm happy to bring reminiscences of an artist enjoyed by generations of Mayhaks, along with a band Sarah and I discovered together. This one encompasses quite a few discs from the collection considering it only covers two distinct artists and nine albums. Lots of "deluxe editions".

We interrupt our regular broadcast to bring you a late Christmas treat: a new addition to the CD collection--by an artist I hadn't heard of before--received as a gift.
