And yay! My systemd timer + Django management command meant the schedule post correctly posted this morning. Next up, tying in auto-social-media posting.

The post isn’t meant as a tutorial, more like, “Oh man I haven’t blogged in forever I might as well write a thought-stream about what I did,” blog post. 😅

I moved’s website from a static site generator to a full Django site and wrote up a bit about the process:

I’m specifically talking about program-y stuff here (and for me, today, systemd stuff) but you know, this goes for most things.

Learning something new and not going to work on something like it again for awhile?

Write notes. Save those notes where you can find them later.

Man, learning so much in the last few days.

Today: systemd things

The programming hole is so deeeeep

Yet another day where I am tripped up by ALLOWED_HOSTS with Django. I seem to only remember it about 50% of the time.

Day three of working solely on server administration.

What is it like outside?
Will I ever see sun again?

vim has been of the most useful things I’ve learned in the last 10 years.

lollll at emails with the subject “WeddingLovely for Cover Story Profile in The 10 Most Hottest Startups To Watch in 2019” and then at the bottom of the email say, “There is a nominal sponsorship for all the above-mentioned benefits.”

Hi, I’m Tracy, and I just accidentally committed with secret keys in git history to a public git repo.

US politics / swearing 

I wonder if I’ll ever have a day with this current US president where I don’t think, “Christ, what an asshole.”
