Daily notes from Jack about everything

Wednesday, September 6, 2023


I spent far too long this morning farting around trying (and failing) to get the Imagick module working on my DigitalOcean WordPress droplet. It's making me rethink managed hosting. I'm now considering letting someone else deal with this sutff. Bluehost? Siteground? WPEngine? Something under $20/month including backups would be good. Any recommendations?

Update: I went with SiteGround


My experiment with going back to Alfred from (Raycast) lasted less than a week. I love Alfred for finding and opening files, but it does weird things with apps (e.g. launches the wrong Emacs binary) and flickers a couple times when I bring it up. Not worth the hassle of switching back, I think.
