Isolation Photo Project : Day 143

I am currently getting no value from my Apple TV+ subscription. I’ve watched all the movies I want to watch: The Banker, Beastie Boys Story, Greyhound and I am waiting for the second seasons of all the TV shows they released in Fall/Winter: For All Mankind, The Morning Show, See, Servant, Truth Be Told, Little America, Mythic Quest, Amazing Stories and Home Before Dark.

I enjoyed The Banker and love the Little America, Mythic Quest, Amazing Stories series.

The content is enjoyable but it seems I may have to wait a long while before new content is available.


I made two mistakes today. The first mistake was relying on VaultPress for WordPress backups. VaultPress is dependent on JetPack. Both were updated in the last two weeks which lay the foundation for my second mistake. I updated to WordPress 5.5. This website went to shit. With the assistance of WordPress consultant, Daniel Brinneman I was able to get the website back to WordPress 5.4. I have re-installed JetPack and VaultPress I still see too many database errors.

I am installing just one plugin at a time starting with the following:

WordPress Plugins

Changing these parameters in wp-config.php did not eliminate these errors.

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M');
define('WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '2048M');

NOTE: These problems did not occur until after the latest JetPack, VaultPress and WordPress updates.


Randomly I went outside in the dark to "find" today's photograph. I had the camera setup on my tripod pointed at the street. After a few minutes, randomly a man, a dog and a young girl appeared leading the trio in the darkness with a flash. Randomly I pushed the shutter release.

Submitted for the 100DaysToOffload project.
