The new version of WordPress was released earlier this month on March 9th, 2021. I’m just getting around to updating my install. Looks like they made some nice upgrades to the drag and drop editor. Initially, I was skeptical when WordPress went with the new block system or WYSIWYG but I have started to like the new stuff. I’m going to be making some updates to the website soon, specifically within the gallery area.
I recently built a new 3D printer, the Creality Ender 3v2. So far I’ve printed a few functional things like a cell phone case, camera battery container, and a few different slingshots. It’s a fun hobby, I’d like to learn some 3D design software like TinkerCad and Fusion360. Right now I’m printing with PLA and a wood pulp/PLA mixture filament. Thousands of people share 3D models online, so it’s easy to find almost anything I would want to print.
Life has been busy lately because I just started a new job. This new remote position will allow me to travel more. With the pandemic keeping me cooped up at home, I’m ready for some adventure. I’ve been getting lighter gear for my backpack so I can hike longer trails. Another project is converting my car into a camper so that I can save money on the road. One day I would like to have a camper van or a small fiberglass travel trailer like the 13-foot Scamp.
