@gray perhaps I make it difficult for myself, I don't like running services directly on my server as it's been a pain in the past (in terms of being able to move servers, and not having the service spread everywhere). I instead use docker. I also use nginx and not Apache, which makes running the inevitable PHP CMS more difficult
@gray Well, I already pay for multiple servers. The Git aspect of it - having it version controlled and reproducable - is super nice
@gray I've had the opposite experience, and have found static sites much easier to set up and maintain.
I can create a Git repo and have it update the website on each commit, hosting it for free on GitLab or GitHub pages. I'm a programmer though, I'm fine with Git and writing blogs in plain text.
The alternative is having to set up php/whatever, potentially in docker, and faff around configuring it all. On a server I need to pay for

@cybercow No, there is not. I created ContentDB, the way to install content in the _engine_. It's not really a package manager yet - it supports installation and updating, but no dependencies or version control. I'm looking for viable existing code to use to make my job easier, as I am working on this by myself I would rather not write everything from scratch.
@cybercow this happens when you have a mod installed to multiple locations - for example, in modpacks and as standalone mods
@xinayder have you set the right monitor as the primary? That works for me for a lot of applications, but not all. They tend to follow the mouse more
Turns out the correct key was Esc, believe it or not 🤦♂️
