Nov. 1987 -- A picture along the long ride to the bottom:
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.
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.
I'm really into this song tonight in a big way: https://open.spotify.com/track/3gFS9CKU70Wm7vAoA0O1uW?si=whO7cAzvRRGVvBWUn80Nqw
It's so good, at least at the moment.
So I've been reading through several stories from "The Bitter Southerner" tonight and it's a surprising trove of awesome content from a refreshingly progressive southern voice.
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 🙁
