Slept in. Rode UberX with Patrick to Mom Ryan's, picked her up, then continued in the same ride to Hayes Valley. The three of us saw Preservation Hall Jazz Band at SFJAZZ's Miner Auditorium for what I think Randall Cline said was SFJAZZ's first 11:00 am performance ever and the last of five PHJB performances following the 2018 gala opening where they received the SFJAZZ Lifetime Achievement Award. We sat in left terrace row TH seats 17, 19, and 21. They played for about 90 minutes with no intermission. Musicians: Ben Jaffe, Charlie Gabriel, Clint Maedgen, Ronell Johnson, Walter Harris, Branden Lewis, and Kyle Roussel. Near the end they invited a Latin band to join them for a few numbers. Ben Jaffe said it was the band's 50th year playing in San Francisco. We had a great time. Tickets were $80 each. Afterwards we walked to lunch at Lers Ros Thai: crab roll cakes to start, prawns asparagus with steamed white rice and thai iced tea for Mom Ryan, lek tom yum and thai iced tea for Patrick, nuer pad pak with steamed white rice and thai iced coffee for me. Water all around. $80.07 before a $13 tip. Rode Lyft home, dropping off Mom Ryan along the way. Note: Lyft handled a multiple destination trip perfectly whereas Uber did not show the first destination correctly to the driver even though it was specified correctly in Patrick's phone. Nap. Dinner at home with Patrick: bone-in pork chops with French Market spices from Spice Ace, Patrick's french bread and butter, san pell, white wine. Afterwards we watched Superstore s3:e12 (Groundhog Day) while eating dessert: chocolate cake from the freezer. Continued playing The Room: Old Sins with Patrick, completing The Curiosity Room and exploring The Garden. So satisfying. Resolved a problem in which I am prompted with "Enter passphrase for key" when attempting to execute git pull or other git commands or when attempting to push journal updates to Bluehost. I thought I had found a solution to this two days ago, but that solution lasts only for your current session. I found a new solution today that seems to work better in a Stack Overflow solution called "SSH Key - Still asking for password and passphrase" asked by HelloWorld. The answer that worked for me was the one given by ChrisJF on Jan 5 '17 at 18:51. I don't understand why this came up for me only now, though. In any case it seems to be fixed for now. Tried and failed setting up the Switch Control accessibility feature so that I can control the MacBook Air from my iPhone 6 Plus for media server purposes; Apple's instructions were too hard to figure out. Installed VNC Viewer for iOS and got it working easy enough, but it's too cumbersome for our needs.
