I borked the server that has been hosting my instance of nodestorage, which in turn provided the editing for my old 1999.io blog. This blog was the direct predecessor to this site and I was publishing to it from May 2016 to February 2018. Before that, from 2014 to April 2016 I was publishign to this site using Fargo.

Right now I cannot SSH in to the server but I do know that it is running and serving up an old Bitnomi default page. I decided to build a new server to replace it, but won’t be able to move any of the data on the old server if I cannot get in to it.

I had nodestorage configured to publish the content to a S3 bucket, which is serving it directly, so I was not expecting the outage to affect the published site, but it does. When you first access the top navigation bar is delayed in loading. Looking at the page source I see variables that contain URLS back to that old site, one which appears to be defining a chat log socket. Unfortunately, this means to not have this affect on the old blog content I need to keep nodestorage running at the URL provided.

Just checked the Google Play store to see if I can directly install an app to my smartwatch. I searched for watches faces, selected one, and saw that there is an option under Install to select whether to install on Phone and Watch or Either or. I don’t think I saw that option yesterday.

Why is it so freakin’ difficult to find what is the most current version of Wear OS? Right now I have Version 2.28 on my Fossil Sport, is that the most current version?

I’ve seen two articles today reporting that Google has updated the Play Store on Android Smartphones so that it can remotely (directly) install Wear OS apps on the watch. One of my main complaints about Wear OS is that it requires me to install/manage apps directly on the watch, which is too difficult given the small screen. In the beginning Google enabled one to install/manage their watches from the phone and they took that away in favor of a standalone app store on the watch, a move that made no sense to me at the time even if that is something done on the Apple Watch.

So far I have not seen this update appear on my Pixel 4a. While I can see the Wear OS category in the Play Store, it still really is a list of Android smartphone apps that have Wear OS components, meaning if you have to first install the app on the phone and then go in to the Play Store on the watch to install the associated Wear OS app, which is a totally braindead approach!

I bought an Airthings Wave Mini that is placed in the basement of our home, which is also our home office. It’s currently in day two of a seven day calibration period but I have already seen a trend on air quality affected by the air conditioner.

I am disappointed with the final episode of Loki. For me, because episode five was so good it felt as though the final episode resolved things a bit too simplistically. What we know is that there will be a second season of Loki and it appears that we know how the Multiverse of Madness comes in to existence. My understanding is that Spider-Man: No Way Home has a multiverse tie-in, so I am guessing Loki set that up, if not it seems we have to wait for the next Doctor Strange movie not due until spring 2022.
