Dude’s written “status quo” all over him.
(I mean, they might really be under attack. Maybe I should give it a couple days.)
(It’s not my server being rate limited. Same thing happens with command-line cURL from, e.g., my Pi at home. In fact, it’s not just feeds but HTML pages, too. Seems they somehow upped their Cloudflare “protection” level.)
Interesting. I follow, via RSS of course, exactly one Medium blog that’s now gone CAPTCHA on my feed aggregator (or rather, cURL). Maybe they should clarify, like, “We’ve found you’re using a machine to try and download a feed intended for machines.” No? *unfollows*
I don’t _need_ email notifications; most of my WordPress installs push new comment notifications to my RSS reader instead. Guess I’ll stick with Mailgun for the one contact form I still have, just in case.
This web server’s able to deliver email to Gmail, how about that? And with a wrong DKIM record and all. Who needs SMTP?
Good thing I don’t _need_, like, actual queue workers and stuff.
One of ’em suddenly got slow as heck; switched from Redis to file-based caching, all good now. (Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Then again, this is shared hosting, not a VPS, let alone dedicated HW.)
Anyhoo, I’m but a simple “DCA investor,” who will, on days like today, buy just a bit more than usual.
Couple weeks ago they were all, “Traders Sent $30 Billion Into the Dip and This Time Got Bruised,” simply because the markets did not recover _the very next day_. (They’d go up for six days straight starting the day after.) https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-12-20/traders-sent-30-billion-into-the-dip-and-this-time-got-bruised
Hehe. “Dip Buyers Drive U.S. Stock Rebound After Selloff” https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-01-09/stocks-seen-steady-with-bond-volatility-in-focus-markets-wrap
This happens, uhm, regularly. A site changes URLs and forgets that GUIDs shouldn’t change. (I’ve probably done this, too, at one point.) Also, their feed doesn’t contain the last 15 or so items, but pretty much every post they’ve ever written. Almost always, a static site generator is “to blame” for this.
Saving invoices/PDFs works. Next up: emailing, then payment tracking, which I kind of forget about. Have two months before the Invoice Ninja fee is due, let’s see if we can make it. Otherwise, might have to wait another year, and look into running it locally or on a domain of its own (because of PHP versions and such).
And another one. Seven to go.
Hoping to speed up things a bit. Not having to start up a VM each time I want to do some more “serious” dev work, I mean.
