Tech Friday: A housekeeping update and WordPress 5.7.2

Posted By on May 14, 2021 was overdue for a backup and since I stepped away early from my desk on Thursday, I figured the end of the day was a good time to sync online and offline storage (the backups make for a sluggish computer and data connection).

Besides backing up data, it also seemed like a good time to install the latest WordPress 5.7.2 update, not for the new editor  … I rarely use it since I prefer OpenLiveWriter … but I don’t mind patching the security issues that are part and parcel to any Internet-connected software.

I still enjoy tinkering with lightweight SSGs like Hugo, but can’t see giving up WordPress if the “open source” powers that be continue to without doing anything radical.
