Well, this is a new one. One of the blogs I manage was throwing 404 errors because the server, which has been running Nginx forever, rebooted yesterday and started running Apache instead.
I managed to change settings away and back and reboot it a couple of times and get it back to running the software it was supposed to, which means
– The site works again
– I don’t have to wait for tech support
But this isn’t the first flakiness the server has shown since they upgraded it to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS a few weeks ago
I’m fortunate not to get the actual headaches, but I have other #migraine symptoms on a regular basis, including the visual distortions. For me it’s usually an open curve, with the line filled with zigzags flashing different colors, that starts at the center of my field of vision and moves to the periphery.
Last night I had one start *during a dream* and persist when I woke up. The weird part: the curve was rotated 90°: Open downward in the dream and leftward when awake.
Also I think it might have been grayscale in the dream (with full-color perception of the rest of the dream) and color when I woke up, but I’m not 100% certain
Apparently Barnes & Noble's catalog thinks Classics Illustrated's print and ebook lines are completely separate, because *none* of the books I spot-checked link from one edition to the other.
I hadn't narrowed down my search query enough at Barnes & Noble. I was looking for “classics illustrated” and getting a zillion irrelevant results. I was too sleepy to follow it up with “Classics Illustrated Les Miserables” next, which would have turned up both the print and eBook editions, as well as several other cheap eBooks that happen to have illustrations in them.
So you *can* still buy the #ClassicsIllustrated #LesMiserables digitally, at least on Nook.
Why doesn't anyone in the #StarTrek universe just *go around* the Great Barrier at the Edge of the Galaxy?
This pattern indicates two-dimensional thinking.
A SQL query is when you ask an author when the next book is coming out.
Neighbor: finds huge spider on the steps of our building, goes to get a broom to kill it from a distance, just to be on the safe side.
Me: Gets my phone up close so I can take a clear photo for #iNaturalist
Another crazy idea: If I sign up to get information by email, wait until you have it and then send me the info. Or post an update. Or something useful *in the channel I requested*
Don't send a content-free brochure with a note to *follow you on social media* just to stay in my inbox.
Crazy idea: the About box for an application should, in addition to credits, version number and company info, say something about what the application is for.
Update the blog post, made a new blog post, replied to everyone who interacted with the mastodon post, replied to DMs, searched for the URL on the birdsite and replied to all the ones I found, and emailed everyone who commented on the blog post since I made the error back in April.
And now I'm going to sleep.
UPDATE: I MESSED UP THESE DIRECTIONS. Badly. The app website shouldn’t be your full webhook URL, because that actually gets linked to on the standalone web view of the post.
Thank you so much to @h3rb1 for pointing out my mistake!
I’ve updated the article, and I’ve edited the Mastodon post with the screenshots, and I’m trying to reach everyone who replied, boosted or liked the post
I’m so sorry I made the bad call, and I’m so sorry I didn’t see it sooner.
Also posted the same with various mentions to alert people who had interacted with the original post
@jarbochov @Hoags @guyjames
As terrible as the old remote interaction workflow was, the new method of showing a URL and telling the user to copy and paste it is so much worse.
Follow, reply, boost, whatever. The pop-up to send you over to your own instance was a pain. But the pop-up telling you how to work around it is like putting up a sign telling people how to get to the back entrance instead of fixing the door.
Holy crap, ClamAV actually released 1.0.0
I was using it in production 15 years ago and it’s been at 0.x.y that whole time!
All I wanted to do was fix a pair of broken links. Then I went down the rabbit hole trying to figure out why digital editions of #ClassicsIllustrated's entire line seemed to have disappeared from the net.

Review of Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 ★★★★☆
I liked Season 3 a lot better than season 2. It finally got to be its own Trek. And they did some really interesting things with the future of the ‘verse and how the Discovery crew adapted to it.
Ok, I think oembed for my personal site is more trouble than it's worth right now. (I've already got Opengraph, Microformats2 and Schema.org on there anyway.) Going to go read something instead.
Apparently today isn't the first time I've thought of this idea. I guess I'd better actually experiment with it this time.
