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

visual #migraine, weird

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

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 digitally, at least on Nook.

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.

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.

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 '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.
