Mar 3 2023 | The Whole is Greater

The Whole is Greater Than the Sum of the Parts.

When there are multiple small, reasonable requests, the sum of those become unreasonable.

This site is mostly built using Server Side Includes. I don't plan on spending too much time on this. And just want something that works. And loads fast.

Feb 22 2023 | Migrating To New Server, Part 4

I still need to fix ssl certs for the gitlab registry. *grin* LXD/LXC is kinda working. A pox on snapd though. Making things more complicated than it needs to be.
