When it comes to the plugins on my blog I like to think I’m a bit of a minimalist.
My “professional” blog at joseph-dickson.com is running bare bones WordPress, on the occasion of a new version update I’ll run WP-Optimize to clean things up a bit then uninstall it. I’d keep it around if I had more things going on over there.
I get some grief from friends for using Jetpack but find many of it’s features worthwhile. Video CDN, automatic backups, comment spam filtering.
My new System76 Galago Pro arrived last Friday and I promised to use it for at least a month before typing up a review. So for now here’s a few photos and a list of what I’ve been up to with this new computer.
Used Libre Office Writer and Calc at the office
Used Vim and gEdit for extensive coding
Added Rhythmbox for locally stored music playback
Copy edited a magazine in Evince
Tested WordPress 5.0 Release Candidate 3 and filed a bug report
Spoke at a meetup and presented on WordPress’s new release
