The year is 2030. All nonhuman life has been exterminated. People live in concrete domes at the center of each continent, and all servers are in Canada.

@alex I use environment variables loaded from secrets in production


Certificates renewed with free ssl providers. Now I can ignore namecheap trying to extort me with their $200 certificates.

Fresh out the oven! I'm bringing back my old-photo posting bot now that I run my own instance and don't have to feel bad for spamming media posts. I present @nullbrook which will post once or twice a day if that's not too much. There's about 10k items in the archive so hopefully it doesn't get boring!

@whtrbt I've finally started to comprehend Dwarf Fortress, does that mean I'm ready to try out nethack? I agree that there's a beauty to the text/graphics style

@starwall the cheese I bought the other day turned out to be pretty tasty

@zens iirc judeochristian angels are hermaphrodites or maybe I'm just thinking of Interspecies Reviewers...

@neauoire I got around to watching this after seeing your recommendation. Incredible, thank you!

If I want to consider config management (or at least some level of config-as-code-as-documentation) for personal web services and I'm running stuff in jails, is there any software that won't feel like work? Do I just make some disgusting sh scripts?
