Computer monitors that auto-select inputs based on what they think is connected can be infuriating. I even contacted the manufacturer to see if there was a way to disable it, and unfortunately there is not.

A monitor is just another appliance, and it should always do what I tell it rather than try and second-guess me.

it feels a bit like port knocking -- but for app routing.

and the knock is authed.

so in playing around I have things set up where I can now enable/disable various parts of the nginx config on this multi-purpose vps I've got via mqtt. And it actually seems to work pretty cleanly.

realistically useful? ... probably not.

am I tempted to try using it for everything now anyway? ... honestly, a bit.

In spite of keeping this server running I sort of stopped checking in on mastodon over the past year plus. It's kinda disheartening
to come back to so many dead accounts.

The effort to re-engage and discover things anew also feels pretty high, but we'll see how it goes.

lol, the cache cleanup cronjob on this instance broke years ago with this[1] and I never really took the couple of minutes to fix it. So now we just go offline every 8 months or so until @leibert notices and pesters me.


...and we're back.

with an updated instance, too!

People talk about xbps being very fast and that confuses me. There's a good chance I'm doing it wrong, but that hasn't been my experience at all.

haven't seen this one before -- well thanks emacs, I guess?

It took me way too long to realize that my non-signal contacts weren't just ignoring my group messages.

Now I'm here trying to find my update history so I can figure out when this started 🙁

I've started writing more consistently again, which is fun and idk maybe productive or smth

US politics are astoundingly depressing

what I would give for Josiah Bartlet on the ticket for 2020 ...

kinda really digging a few tracks by ROLE MODEL rn

Why the heck did I wait so long to get a decent dock for this laptop?
