I was lent (and then gifted) Foreigner’s Foreigner, Double Vision, and 4 albums on vinyl and spent the better parts of the past week listening to them.
My mom got me into classic rock starting when I was about 7, and they’ve been, by far, my favourite music group. In all those years, I never actually listened to the vocals. This is somewhat true for most music I enjoy, the melody and beat are generally what drive my interest.

Starting to do the above was actually the motivator to moving my site to a new host, which was quite a bit of fun and will save me about 120 a year on hosting fees, so a plus on multiple levels.
I’m going to tag posts related to this subject with ‘therapy’ so they’re easily searchable (or avoidable).
Decided to stop paying so much for a shared hosting solution and do something a little funner and harder. So .. welcome to the new host! Glad I did it because I got exposed to security hardening, dns configuration, ssl certificates, and other hosting-related things.
Next goal is to set up a simple mail server to replace the functionality from the previous host. That isn’t really up yet, but it will be as soon as I figure that out.
That’s pretty much it for now.
