Those who would sacrifice their security for a little bit of convenience deserve neither security nor convenience, and will lose both.

The Akamai outage is a disgusting, preventable occurrence. Host your own media for crud's sake. I do.

@humanetech give this tutorial a read and try to replicate the results.

My Wireguard tutorial should be read before attempting this.

krowverse.services/story/local

crontab, css, website status 

I hypothesized that crontabs start at the root filesystem, and created a crontab as a root user. To test the validity of my rule, I attempted to run the command solo and it worked.

That command is (on the EXPORTING filesystem)

cd /path/to/export/assets && sh change-theme.sh

And it worked.

crontab, css, website status 

I finally fixed the crontab scheduling for CSS. My site should auto-change themes at 7 AM and 7 PM from now on, GMT minus 4 hours.

Because I now deliver my sites over NFS, it affected how the crontabs worked and I could not use explicit paths anymore.

ubuntubuzz, dnsbl, connection issue 

Something in UbuntuBuzz' upstream infrastructure relies on G----, because the site won't load for me.

rickroll, humor 

So a student rickrolled their physics teacher.

The tweet cannot be viewed on Twitter because the original account that posted the tweet was deleted. The account present was created in 2020.

"Wait, don't you block Twitter with your DNS?"

- I do. I used the Nitter frontend to validate this.

The conveniences you enjoy require hard working, dedicated people behind them.

If any inconveniences occur, it is your fault for choosing those checks over staying home.

It seems like a good idea to take the larger check, but without anything to spend it on, it becomes worthless over time.

Please come back to work, America.

website status, bind9, email, smtp, self-hosted, crosspost 

I decided to document my recent self hosting achievements in two tutorials:

Email: krowverse.services/story/set-u

Local DNS: krowverse.services/story/local

Not sure if I said it here yet, but if a business is worried about impersonation on Fedi, they can use their own domain and I'd certainly be convinced it was actually them.

browser wars, orphan reply 

I still use Gecko and I use Goanna too.

We don't reward bullies for bad behavior. We don't bully THEM, either. We remedy the circumstances that permitted the bullying to occur.

Giving G----- more market share to abuse is a hideous mistake.

Of course, @nemo!

May I get two followers to copy and repost this message? I’m trying to demonstrate that someone is always listening.

Just two. Any two. Copy. Not boost.

hot take, insurance, risk pool 

Health insurance is about to get even more expensive as sicker, risk-taking, unwell individuals begin to outnumber healthy, low-risk individuals.

I couldn't think of a better way to save money. Life is short. Make it count.
