So, @codeberg I've decided to let other people run networks and servers and not self-host gitea, static hugo blog on pi. Wondering if a) I can delegate domains (git.DOMAIN, blog.DOMAIN) to codeberg and b) if it's appropriate given most of what I put up are personal blogs, HOWTOs with the occasional bash, python or elisp hacks. Thanks.
Steve Wilhite died last week. Yes, he created GIF, but that was just a side project among mountains of mostly projects that were a large part of what kept CompuServe going for years in the face of AOL and the Web.
One of my coworkers recalled:
…many times when asked about a delivery date Steve would answer “it will be done when it is done.”
I laughed when I read that. It was so Steve. The poor project managers...
The fine folks at Hurricane Electric have been running networks and providing me with a shell account for 20 years. Gonna let them host the hugo blog for a while (after failing to carve out the time to resurrect the pi, and netwok setup, and the web server and....
Hiking yesterday in the Shenandoah Valley I discovered that I was on part of “Morgans Road”, which is a road George Washington had built into the hills to allow his army to retreat from the British in case things got really bad. That was enough at the time of the bicentennial (1976) to put up another George Washington marker.

Russian Opera Text, maybe subersive.
Below is some text from Rimsky-Korsakov’s last opera, where the people mockingly pledge loyalty to the Russian King (Tsar)
King Dodon, a lazy and gluttonous ruler, is greatly worried by his warlike neighbors.
It seems the Kremlin’s website is having some issues right now
Oh, You Gotta Get A Glory In The Work You Do
I’ve been reading a lot of poetry lately. A snatch of a poem my grandmother used to quote came to mind:
Oh, you gotta get a glory
In the work you do;
A hallelujah chorus
In the heart of you.
Paint, or tell a story,
Sing, or shovel coal,
But you gotta get a glory
Or the job lacks soul.
Even Google dosn't know much about it, so here it is in my grandmothers handwriting.
She never did ANYTHING halfway.
