Solo: A Star Wars Story Added to Blu-ray Collection

Over Christmas I got Solo: A Star Wars Story Blu-ray as a gift. I have added it to my DVD/Home Theater page to reflect the addition. Even though it had some issues and things that could have been done better, I still enjoyed it. I also did not have any problems with Alden Ehrenreich who played Han Solo. 🙂

I’ve included a trailer as well.

Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas for 2018!

EQ2 Christmas Tree 2015

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas for 2018! 🙂 There’s some cruddy weather in many places so everyone take it easy out there and stay safe as well. Oh, the image on the left was taken in EverQuest II.

Looking forward to time spent with family and the good food. 🙂

I’m including one of my favorite Christmas Lights to Wizards in Winter music videos again. I hope you enjoy it!

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.0.2

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.0.2 which contains many bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. It did include an update to the TwentyTwelve theme but nothing required me to modify my child theme. As I always do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating my blog here. The update seems to have gone fine. 🙂

How to Get RSS Working in Firefox 64

As of Firefox 64, the ability to preview RSS feeds natively has been removed, which kind of sucks. I get why they did it though (or do I? Hmmm…).  Anyway, to get the functionality back, you need to install one or more add-ons.  Since Firefox 63 came out which lost the ability to detect RSS feeds, a lot of RSS feed related extensions have started appearing.

Firefox RSS Detection using Awesome RSS

At the moment, I am using Awesome RSS to add an RSS Feed indicator to the Location bar and RSSPreview to preview the feed much like before.  For this to work, the RSS option needs to be selected in the Subscribe Using option of Awesome RSS. There might be a better option but these work for now for my needs. For those that use Feedly, Awesome RSS does have a Feedly option as well.

Hopefully this helps anyone that’s missing the RSS functionality. 🙂
