Simple Stoicism

Good post on Stoicism – I found from a comment on Potatowire’s site

Boiling it down
The easy 1, 2, 3 of stoicism may be presented as:
If you can change it, it doesn’t deserve your worry. Go ahead and make the change. Just do it!
If you can’t change it, it doesn’t deserve your worry. You can’t fix it, so why stress?2
If you worry about it anyway, you are simply inviting it to tyrannise and traumatise you, indefinitely. Rumination is the worst.

Simple Stoicism.

My car has a backup camera now.

It seems like a good product. The instructions were non-existent. I bought three things from Home Depot to get it working. And I learned how to crimp wiring. And just how flimsy the interior of a Chevy Equinox is.

Desk upgrade

I love my Ikea Skarsta desk. It’s a hand-crank adjustable desk meant for sitting or standing. Truth be told, I mainly use it because I can never find a desk tall enough for my 6’5″ frame.

When I got it, they did not have the larger desk top. Now, two years later, I am running out of horizontal space and decided to look again. They had it in stock at my local store so I went and picked it up.

So long 27″x 47″. Hello 31.5″ x 63″!

I’ve had it for two days and it was easy to replace the top and readjust the base. Other than it making me want to rethink how my office is laid out, I love it.


Looking to move on from Dreamhost where I’ve been for over a decade. It seems they’re pushing towards VPS plans and saying my meager WordPress sites are using too many resources.

What are you fine people using for shared hosting?

I’ve got a box to tinker on at home so not looking for a VPS.

Looking for blog hosting. WordPress. Known. Photo gallery. All personal.

Cpanel would be nice.

I like to try out new things.
