my big problem is

i love making things, but i also like making them 'from scratch'; i have huge NIH syndrome lmao

i was hoping sub-rosa could be a fun little project for myself but now i'm back in the weeds of 'how do i manage the security model for this' and bleh. bleh bleh. :(

Bitcoin 2 mining will have a feature where people who mine too much of it over too long a period of time in certain spans will be blocked from mining it and assigned an untradeable NFT of the wikipedia article on black lung

i think i might switch from riseup to fastmail

having actual calendars and custom domains seems nice

i am working on a patreon-to-rss thing that works based off your notification emails, and i have a dilemma

do i want to recommend people run this against their e-mail accounts, or do i want to recommend people forward those e-mails to a separate address

ay, it's working

i have to decide if i want the recommended setup for sub-rosa (my patreon email to rss thing) be "run this on your actual e-mail account" or "set up a separate account that you forward patreon e-mails to"

the latter is more secure but more annoying, the former is more convenient but means that if i get compromised (or your package manager does) you could get screwed also please look at this destiny 2 lore entry, which is literally just a giant Hackers reference, down to the names

sidekiq fell over again...

tried just restarting the server to see if that fixes it

though now that i think about it, since i'm scraping stuff i probably don't actually want to rely on the presence of CSS selectors, and instead do this by looking more at the structure. bleh.

fortunately the patreon emails have CSS classes in them, even though they don't actually embed a stylesheet
