As tonight's storms roll in, I’m glad I cleaned out the gutters this afternoon!

@eelcomaljaars I’m running (at last count) 8 sites on one OpenBSD httpd host, each with its own distinct certificate/key pair, so it is possible. Each "server" entry listens on *, instead of the host name.

Jason Sudekis on Ted Lasso being a hit;
“I mean, it’s truly shocking to me because it’s built around two things Americans hate: soccer and kindness.”

@eelcomaljaars Try:

listen on * tls port 443

... instead of:

listen on example.{org,com} tls port 443

Instance server upgraded to 7.0. Pretty smooth this time.

@celesteh That works too. Thank you!

@celesteh I am so sorry you were mistreated this way by Christians. Whoever you are, whatever you believe, you should be able to count on the same outpouring of support your friend is receiving, should you need it. The church I serve is willing to pray for you - no expectations, no judgments, no questions asked.

@tedu My favorite was the one where the teacher set you up with a partner on opposite sides of the track, and you had to run until one of you passed the other one... or passed out. Good times!

US politics, sophistry 

Clinton’s Gallup approval averaged in the high 50’s all through fall 1996. An incumbent with those numbers just isn’t going to lose, no matter how likable the other candidate is.

Where does Stephens come up with this stuff?

I remember the 1996 election, because it was the first one I voted in. Powell, for all his high favorability, would have been crushed, just like Bob Dole was. Bill Clinton was a popular incumbent riding an economic boom.

There is so much value in a vivid illustration. I still remember how my high school biology textbook beginning a chapter on cellular respiration. If you wanted to get to the store, and you had a car with a full tank of gas, it said, you could drop a lit match into the gas tank. Perhaps some pieces of the car—and you!—might even make it to the store. But this is not the best way to use the energy at your disposal, and so it is worth exploring how energy is transformed, stored, and used.

xenophobia, graphic descriptions of historical violence 

I can picture the section of railroad where this happened. It’s chilling. And as with so many injustices, the world just moves on.

Then they have the audacity to protest when the “padrone” (labor procurer for the railroad) loots their comrades’ bodies with vague promises about handing over the money to the Italian consulate in trust for their families. (And if you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you.)
