MicroSoft has a good browser?

When I did the Windows 10 upgrade, I made a point to give Edge a good try.  I never realized how much I’ve come to like it until now.  I need a plug-in to interface to Github and the vendor only supplies them for Firefox and Chrome and I find myself saddened.  I don’t miss the bloat of those two browsers.  I really had to think hard about it.  Ultimately I’ve decided on Chrome as the lesser of two evils, but I’m only going to run that one app in it.  I’ll keep Edge running for all my other sites!


FreeBSD ports update sadness..

So, today’s wondrous surprise is that Apache22 is looking for db 6.1, but it has been replaced by 6.2 during the last ports update and 6.1 is no longer available on ports at all…  Time to do the ugly origin reset/rebuild process to get it going again, but 6.2 being in the same ports directory as 6.1 was makes for a slightly new twist.  Sigh.

portmaster -o databases/db6 databases/db6
portmaster -R -r databases/db6
cd /usr/ports/www/apache22
make clean reinstall
