My chance to what? cvining

After dinner, Rita turned to Theron and said: you missed your chance.

Theron: Chance to what (of course he replied).

Rita: Chance to avoid growing old. The  only way to avoid growing old is to die young, and you missed your chance on that one.

Migration of this website from Drupal 9 to Drupal 10

Today I declare this website upgraded from Drupal 9 to Drupal 10.  In most ways the upgrade went smouthy, and certainly was easier than previous major version upgrades.

Still, the Theme was using isn't available in Drupal 10, so i had to choose and configure a new theme. That was harder than it should be IMHO.

Harder was getting Quotes to work as I'd like. Formatting was tRicky.

My impression is that the Drupal community has moved much more to large, enterprise sites rather than the smaller sites lIke mine. Frankly, i would go with WordPress if i were starting out today, I'm even tempted to make a static archive of the current  site and starting over with WordPress. 

But for now, this is where I am.

Whence 'Free Will'?

Sapolsky's new book, Determined: A Science of Life without Free Will, re-Kindled (so to speak) conversation with a friend (I'm looking at you, Gary) on Free Will. I'm often misunderstood on the subject I'll say again: it's not so much that i reject the idea of Free Will as I utterly don't understand where it comes from.

Of course I concede it feels lIke I'm free to choose vanilla vs chocolate, I'm just confused about how that choice is actually made. So, here I'll try to elaborate what i see as the core problem.
