As the web moves more and more to HTTPS and ehanced security (such as HSTS) keeping your certificates updated and valid becomes more and more important. I’m toying with an idea of building a small webapp to monitor my small portfolio of certificates and warn me if a certificate is due to expire. As part of this, I’m slowly patching pieces together in Go and one of the small useful outcomes is a small (compilable to bin) script which prints the basic certificate details of a given domain.
Going from one CMS to another can be huge challenge - especially as I wanted the various pieces I’ve managed to bring along from the past 20 years along (content from the first years of the site is sadly lost over time). Getting content out of Wordpress Getting content out of Wordpress is quite easy. It has a built-in export function and while it took some time, resulting in a large zip file.

Network connection While wifi seem to work fine mostly, it can cause issues. If you have the option to use a wired connection for you device used for videomeetings, do so.
From time to time my Mac is doing stuff which takes quite awhile. Converting images, converting videofiles between formats or other stuff, which may take a long time (but reasonable predictable). In those cases I run a little command in the terminal, to automatically shut down the Mac upon completion: sudo shutdown -h +120 This command sets a timer which shutdown the machine after two hours (the 120 parameters being after 120 minutes).
