So I picked up a new laptop today Asus ZenBook UX305 – ok it looks like a MacBook air knock off but did everything I needed. Anyway I thought I’d track the Software I install/remove:-
- Chrome – mainly as I hate IE and love Google
- GDrive – because most of my stuff is on gdrive
- KeePass (pro) – keeping my passwords safe
- Rainmeter – because desktops are so boring without it
- Kitty – for all those ssh needs
- Libre Office
- Google Photo – apparently they’ve discontinued Picassa!!
- Notepad++ – normally I use Atom but needed something a little more lightweight
- Kitty – these days I prefer it over Putty
- SourceTree – to keep all the dev stuff in sync
…I’ll add more as get this up and running
I’ve taken over responsibility for the Remission Possible website which is currently hosted on WordPress.com
The plan is to develop a new look for the site then migrate the content over before relaunching the site along with a calendar of fundraising events.
So here I will keep track of what I’ve done in case I ever need to retrace/work out what I did.
Installing a fresh copy of wordpress on a subdomain of galiquis to start developing the new look…once it’s all ready switch it to the main domain address for remission possible.
- Create new folder
- Create new subdomain pointint to new folder
- Create new Database
- SSH into 1and1
- cd to correct folder
- wget https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz –no-check-certificate
I needed to add the cert check
- untar the file – tar xfvz latest.tar.gz
- mv ./wordpress/* ./
- Now go to the new domain which should then initiate the config of WP
Well life does have a way of pulling the rug from under you when things are going well…
Emily lost her battle – not to the cancer she beat twice – but to the numerous infections her newly transplanted Spanish immune system couldn’t fight off.
And to be honest it’s hit me for 6!
Obviously because of the shock of losing a member of the family at such a young age (18), partly because I genuinely never contemplated her not beating it completely and having a great life ahead of her. But mostly because in Emily I saw a reflection of all the things that I’ve aspired to be over the years.
Intimidatingly talented, both intellectually and spiritually – a true inspiration and rarity these days.
The fight goes on – through those left behind for those left with the same battle on their hands.
Emily wanted to leave a legacy – wanted to inspire, campaign and educate people on the cancer that came into her life. Well that will be her legacy. Remission possible, the blog/capaign she started will live on as a charity in its own right – continuing her work. This year will be filled with fundraising to help build a ward for teenage cancer patients in her name… but it won’t stop there I feel.
