Still working on everything, but I finally have a new theme installed on the site and I am getting better at using git to get everything updated and working the way I need it to.

For example, this is what I have been working with in Git just trying to get this site running:

$ git add .
$ git commit
	[master cf03026] color fixes
	1 file changed, 4 insertions(+), 4 deletions(-)
$ git push
	Counting objects: 3, done.
	Delta compression using up to 4 threads.
	Compressing objects: 100% (3/3), done.
	Writing objects: 100% (3/3), 341 bytes | 341.00 KiB/s, done.
	Total 3 (delta 2), reused 0 (delta 0)
	remote: Resolving deltas: 100% (2/2), completed with 2 local objects.
	To https://github.com/BearDooks/beardooks.github.io.git
	   bfb2649..cf03026  master -> master

So this year my goal was to cut costs where ever I could. My old hosting provide was bleeding me dry for money, and I always seemed to have an issue with them. Enter Jekyll, a free, simple, and lightweight way to blog using a github repo.

I have seen this before, and knew of a few people who were using it, but I had never tried it myself. Come to find out there are a ton of methods to install this ‘software’. A large group of people have made repos on Githib that you can fork and just start using. I went a different approach and ran through the offical install method.

I hope to have this tie up and running with more features, and plugins, but since I know almost nothing on using the GIT command line, I feel like I am learning everything all over again.

Edit:

I wrote this and then I found this method is no good. There is so much that does not work. Adding to this seems impossible. If you really want to run this on ubuntu, then go to the official site and follow their directions.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:emulationstation/ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libretro/stable

sudo apt update

sudo apt install emulationstation emulationstation-theme-simple

sudo apt install libretro-nestopia libretro-snes9x-next libretro-mupen64plus libretro-mednafen-psx

This is going to be a quick post about the site to update everyone (like anyone really reads this) about what is going on. Recently my hosting company has decided to scan a large portion of my sites, and mark them as malware.

RimWorld

Over the weekend while looking for a new game to play, I picked up a copy of RimWorld on Steam. Without a doubt, this is one of the most frustrating, unfair, and extremely addicting games I have played in a while. RimWorld has a ton of modes and different styles to play, so I will keep it simple and discuss what I have done.

Day 1:

When you fire up RimWorld you can either jump right into the action. or you can play a tutorial. I highly suggest you play
