@opennic is something up with the nameservers?

I haven't been able to connect to multiple nameservers for almost a month now.

I was just too lazy to and test the module. Maybe, I'll do it some other time. It's not like I don't have or on my cloud.

I hope the latest version will be packaged in at least with maybe.
I'm guessing might already have the right packages. At least with an LTS coming right around the corner ( even if does not have it ).

Until then ( or until I build it from source; and it works ), certbot, we're going to continue our relationship.

Fortunately, because I had thought of enabling -based configuration and not just overwriting all of my configuration, all I had to do was to a2dismod md and I was with my previous good configuration.

And the other advantage is that I don't have to take these configurations out of the main file to make it work.

When the module matures enough to be packaged for distributions, I just have to (re-)enable the module ( and restart , of course ) and I'll have md working right out of the box.

No initial run goes smooth. This was no different.
After commenting out well-documented 'Invalid command's, I finally got to start at least, only to get thrown a bunch more errors at me.

In the end, what was it? The module was still stuck with the 'experimental' ACMEv1 client.

I guess I should've backed off when I noticed the 'transitional package' label on the package before even installing it.

I'm cozying back up with good ol' . I don't it's going anywhere anytime soon.

And here I was running the traditional certbot+apache combination 🤦‍♂️

I checked my apt-cache for libapache2-mod-md and it was there ( though the description read 'transitional package` ).

I spent the night reading through the extensive documentation and adapting my configuration to work with ( with conditionals as well ).

that built-in support for the Let's Encrypt ACME ( experimental since v2.4.33 ) since 2017 ( or at least early 2018 ) 🤯

Dear university computer science/informatics/infosec programs of the world, stop letting students graduate without command line experience. We still need that experience.

Shhh, don't tell them using Linux is about having more freedom in your life. They might start to oppress us.

I just can’t with Google. I do not understand why the web community (mostly) views Facebook as questionable but treats Google as socially acceptable. Lines drawn at their own convenience.

Hey @Gargron, I know Mastodon can import-export data between instances.

Have you heard of the ( )? Should you consider joining the project because Mastodon is already doing the good work.

They do have a whitepaper ( but not an RFC 🤔 ). Maybe you could take a look and see how Mastodon could contribute to the project?

If I got paid for the unsuccessful commands, I'd be richer than Bill Gates because $? would be > 0. You don't have to get them right all the time, just make sure to have good backups.

In a previous tweet we mentioned that privacy-abuse for ads just generates 4% more revenue. The New York Times actually showed that privacy-friendly ads can even generate MORE revenue! So what is the case for user profiling again? #privacy

Which even if you're not doing this visualization you should be doing anyways or just turn off root logins altogether.

@aral The answer from Amazon's spokerperson is priceless: "We’ll continue to invent more privacy features on behalf of customers.". You don't need to "invent privacy features" if you're not spying on people in the first place!
