When someone told me that getting your first tattoo leads to another? They were oh so right about that. I recently visited Three Points Tattoo in Vancouver, BC, Canada and got my third. Just a small one, a little off switch in case I cannot sleep.
I take a lot of pictures almost everywhere I go. So, here are some random ones of the Province that I live in, British Columbia.
One of the traditions I picked back up this year was go back to the Festival of Lights at Van Dusen Gardens in Vancouver, BC, Canada with my Mom. Here are some of the pictures and if you live in the area I highly recommend it!
Well, as I was warned getting tattoo’s is addictive as I just got my second tattoo. My second one is the Batman symbol with Harley Quinn colors on the back of my right calf. Much smaller and simplier than my first but a good second.
While people should be using MySQL 8.0, which is straight forward, what if you have a requirement to install the still supported 5.7 on SuSE 15? It requires a little more effort, but the following guide should make it a lot easier. This is based on a bare bone, minimal installation of SuSE so if you choose otherwise, you may not need to enable both repositories.
First download the following package from Oracle: mysql-5.7.27-1.sles12.x86_64.rpm-bundle.tar (I know it says sles12, but there is no 5.7 official package for sles15)
Secondly enable the following repositories:
- SUSEConnect –product sle-module-basesystem/15.1/x86_64
- SUSEConnect –product sle-module-legacy/15.1/x86_64
Once this is complete install the following packages:
- zypper install libatomic1 libnuma1 libnuma-devel libncurses5 perl-JSON libXtst6 libXtst-devel libXrender1 libasound2
At this point you will now be able to install the MySQL 5.7 RPM’s without issue!

Contiuning in my series of posts about Halloween events around abouts where I live we come to the Stanley Park Ghost Train. Now, there are those who say it’s only an event for little children but you seen awful lot of adults traveling alone. It’s nostalgic for me at this point and every year they have a different theme.
So, below is a gallery of some of my favorite photos over many years worth of visits. Please note the photos are taken from a cellphone camera on a very wobby train in the dark.
Now, when it comes to events in British Columbia, Canada where I live often gets the shaft. Our Fan Expo isn’t even compatible to Toronto’s and our yearly exhibition, the PNE is also not even comparable in size and scope to Ontario. However, I do still love the PNE and one other even they have yearly is Fright Nights! A collection of haunted houses, a freak show and lot of different carnival rides.
While I wish that I still had my original iPhone, I did keep and still do, keep all of the boxes. The picture represents the iPhone 3GS to the latest, iPhone 11 Pro Max. Yes, I upgrade every year and have always been happy about doing so.
