Cleaning out various mostly-abandoned 'cloud storage' accounts (a Dropbox I haven't touched in years; a Nextcloud instance slowing down my Linode server for no useful reason)...

Here's a random image I don't know what to do with.

definitely not a pirated comic strip about comic strips

(woof, the timestamps vary pretty wildly between VLC and Forecast. I need to re-do that audio file I just posted. Need to walk the dog first though...)

Radio Nachos 05

Extra weirdsies this week. Too much of somethings, not enough otherthings.

UPDATE: I should mention, now that I'm using Forecast to set chapters, it's way better to listen to this file in a podcast player that can use them. I don't link to the feed anywhere, but it's https://www.rich-text.net/pod.xml

Over the weekend I decided to learn my way around Docker (I'd tried once before but it just didn't stick). Now Tuesday afternoon, I've reached a point where the basics (and cutting and pasting from tutorials) mostly make sense. Moved a full-stack web app (node/express, apollo, graphql, redis, react) into Docker, got the whole thing SSLed and deployed on a new $5/mo. Linode VPS. If I can move a few other things over there (other Node apps, a Wordpress install), maybe I can ditch my original Linode and get my monthly bill back down from $10 to $5?

Stretch challenge: Most of my node apps use MongoDB's Atlas -- the free tier, but still... would self-hosting inside containers improve performance?

Another Monday, another adequate cover of a New Order song in my Discover Weekly... 🎸 πŸ₯ 🎹

watching sportsbros on TV talking about the Bucs game about to start; there's a graphic of the Tampa waterfront behind them. It occurs to me that this year's COVID-impacted class of new lawyers will be the first in 2 generations not to be traumatized by the sight of the convention center.

Juuuust about ready to delete my Goodreads account. I'm confident in the data export over to https://beta.thestorygraph.com/ and have started marking "to reads" and "now reading" over there & not on Goodreads. (I have two or three 1-star reviews that make me laugh when people "like" them. They'll have a much more limited audience now. 🀣)

With a Linode-hosted Wordpress instance, feat. SemPress & all the indieweb plugins... Sunlit fails 95% of the time. ("The network connection was lost.") Troubleshooting, I uninstalled both it and M.b app. On reinstall of latest (383) -- I can't get it or M.b app to accept endpoint (XML-RPC something error).

I feel like I just don't belong in this club.
