George's Youtube Channel - First three posts up

I think I mentioned in an earlier post that my son is working on a YA novel called Challenger's Chase. Related to that he is creating a series of channels on Instagram, etc., but specifically a Youtube channel talking about writing drafts. He has posted his first three vlog entries:

  1. Channel Intro
  2. What is Writing Drafts?
  3. Defining Your Reasons To Write; 11 Pros and Cons

Check it out!

Wiki is Up

So my wiki is up and running. I still have some operational tweaks to it I'd like to make but that's all they are is tweaks at this point.

  • As a reminder, the wiki is the place where I am beginning to outline my political platform. What I mean by that is based on the events over the last year, the abomnination of the 45th President, the absolute traitorous and seditious policies pursued by the Republican Party, for the first time I registered as a Democrat. The GOP is not a political party, but can only be considered as such much in the way that Sinn Fein was the political arm of the IRA, Irish Republican Army.It is still part of a seditious domestic terrorist organization. The acquital of the 45th President where 43 Senators voted to acquit and immediately following the end of the Trial, Mitch McConnell condemns the former President as guilty to inciting and causing the Capitol Riot which just prior he voted to acquit him of those exact charges.

    Wiki is Almost There

    As you know, I have been trying to get my MoinMoin wiki back up an running. I have upgraded successfully to moin2 and even imported the pages from the previous moinmoin wiki successfully. Now I am tweaking things like security (it was wide open), need to add ssl instead of normal http and all the other normal things for "production" . Since this isn't my day job it is taking me a while to get it up and running but I am getting there. I have been taking copious notes (not really) about what I am doing to get it running correctly. I am awfully close to having it running nice an clean.

    However, in the meantime it will spend more time down than up as I get it to where I want. I'm really close though and hopefully I can find time to nail it down. I'll be sure to post here when I do get it up and running. I will probably see if I can create a simple vm that takes up less resources on GCP so I can reduce costs. I can use that and the notes I take to create a tutorial that maybe people can use. We shall see.


    The wiki was succesfully upgraded to be accessed only by https and I believe I have the ACLs working correctly. Now I just have a few more production tweaks setting up the uwsgi emperor service.

    George's First Chapter of Challenger's Chase is Released

    My son George has been writing his first novel, Challenger's Chase(prologue), and instead of going the normal publishing or self-publishing route he has decided to release the book via blog posts. He just released the first chapter which can read here: I read a very early version of the first part of this chapter. Obviously the story is George's but you will also notice that it has a lot illustrations that go with it. Those are his as well.
