Okay, I killed the Gopher server and did a kind of text blog thing.


I love personal repos.

If I ever share them, I'd use the same commit commenting scheme.

Decided to use Firefox's Lockwise but only on one machine. (With a primary password, of course.)

We'll see how it goes.

I'm going to move the gopher server, but I expect I'll shut it down and integrate it with the web server as a plain text thing.

Gopher is fun, but the lack of linking really sucks.

It's kind of amazing how much faster my new hosting provider is when it comes to running 'apt upgrade' and such.

Basically the same specs on the VMs, too.

Okay, website moved. Had to fight with SSL a bit.

It will occasionally forget there is monitor there, and it never remembers window size or placement.

You can yell about macOS, but at least it gets that pretty much right.

Honestly, how do people put up with Windows and multiple monitors or an external monitor for a laptop? It's pretty fucking terrible.

Have you been to the country? I heard they have a lot of peaches.

Check the can with the peaches put there by a man in the factory downtown.

I don't pay too much attention to my server logs since it's a static site and very basic. But wow, the PHP requests....

Next step: certbot with lighttpd.

But first, bike ride.

The funny thing is there will be almost no user-facing difference to the site. It's all backend stuff to make my life easier.

Almost ready to deploy my site on a new host.

I am a firm believer that you must be able to "program" your HTTP server, too. Gotta be mindful of that stuff.

The worst part is that I'm not demanding much of it. I basically just run a terminal, a browser, and play audio.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
