Brave New World

For years Iโ€™ve use Chrome as my browser exclusively. But in the past year or so I switched to Firefox over privacy concerns only to discover Firefox also plays with my dataโ€ฆI tried Vivaldi and believe it is good but it is also bloated into a lot of things I donโ€™t need. I want my browser to be a browser. It doesnโ€™t need to do everything I do online. Iโ€™m finding that Vivaldi crashes (the dead bird screen) during streaming A LOT. Nearly every time I stream hockey. So now, Iโ€™m trying Brave. So far it seems okay but it will be its performance over the long haul that will determine if it remains my browser of choice.

That Will Smith/Chris Rock slapfest was quite the awkward situation last night at the Oscars.


So bdot decided to go to Mexico for our friendโ€™s daughterโ€™s wedding. She leaves tomorrow morning. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I decided to stay home, watch the pets, Iโ€™m not really a sun and sand person and seven days of it is unappealing to me. Sure it would be fun butโ€ฆ meh. I know bdot needs a break, I hope she enjoys the trip.

WordPress allows emoji within posts. Here are the emoji that it supports: ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜•

And that use words: ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ’ก โžก โ— โ“

These donโ€™t appear to work for me? XD >:D ๐Ÿ˜ก ^^โ€™ ๐Ÿป โญ ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ :/ o_O โค

I assume these emoji on W3 work? (might differ browser to browser)

โ˜• (the hex format needs the x included ->) โ˜• So, just use dec? โ›„ โ›ณ ๐ŸŒˆ ๐ŸŒž

Added the google analytics code back in โ€“ donโ€™t believe the numbers from cloudflare.


Forced the site to use HTTPS. Which is always the right thing to do.

Canadaโ€™s Menโ€™s National Team looking pretty ineffective against Panama. Certainly didnโ€™t finish strong. (Costa Rica too) They scored one but it was a shoulder offside. Lots of misses. 1-0 loss. Disappointing.
