Training in Quarantine – Day 179

Late out today — my phone wanted to upgrade so I attempted it (it was an upgrade from Android 9 to Android 10), and it didn’t work, and I ended up having to factory reset and install from scratch. I did have some Titanium Backup backups, but they didn’t seem to work a lot of the time :/

So for the most part, I just reinstalled all the apps I remember using and logged in. For most, that was fine. But I lost the MFA codes on Google Authenticator, meaning I had to remove and setup:

  • AWS
  • LastPass
  • WordPress
  • GitLab

all over again

AWS was quick and painless after a security check to confirm I was who I said I was and they called me on the number on the account.

WordPress was painless too — I was already logged in, so just removed MFA and set it up again, then logged in again. Similarly with LastPass

GitLab however, is proving to be more of a pain. They no longer accept MFA removal requests for people on the Free plan. So I wonder if they will accept me going to a subscription model so I _can_ then request the MFA removal. I think it is better anyway, since I’m hitting the 400 minute CI limit pretty regularly. The 2000 minute CI limit would be better. At least until I can get my own GitLab install working.

As for the run, yes, it was a run — well, more of a jog, anyway. Still did the 3km lap, doing it in 20 mins rather than the 30 mins it normally takes me when I walk it.

Forgot to log my walk yesterday. So doing both today.

Yesterday, I decided to look at a house up for sale on Zoopla, but couldn’t find it. The map marker was where a gated house was, but there was no estate agent sign. Maybe it’s been sold already?

But at least I got a nice walk out of it.

Today I did my normal lap around. Tesco have made progress on the forecourt of their petrol station, but I haven’t the foggiest what kind of work they’re doing.

Later walk than normal — the weather was colder and darker, but still made it around without any rain soaking me this time.

In other news, you may recall I spoke about a prospective new house I was looking at. Well, even though my offer was accepted, the seller decided to pull out of the deal before any contracts were exchanged. I’m bummed as heck over it, but not much I can do about it, I guess.
