Pinned toot

Hi there! I'm Ceralor, and also go by Kay when feeling more mammallian than reptilian! I'm a furry systems administrator that pretends to be a balloon dragon or coyote on the Internet, but I like to think I'm metaphorically full of less hot air than I am physically.

I'm a 30yo gay male living in Alabama with a full time admin job. I'm a little shy but love meeting new folks. I run the blimps.xyz instance for friendly big folks. So say hi!

Was debating adding blimps.xyz to Keybase's link thing but, ehhh. If you really want that can easily just sign a document that says "My masto profile is <x>" and put it on a proved site.

PGP is neat and weird and hard.

You know that Eminem song? "Awoo Yourself"???

Storage MUCH more under control. Had to eventually just make it loop cause it'd timeout, but we're down to only 63GB of cached+local media, so, yey~ Total storage for media and backups falls under 100GB for blimps.xyz now.

now it's time to sleep so I can recharge my gay

goodnight~

And I want to help others learn from my struggles so they don't so, uh, if you are using Pelican and having trouble with something, let me see if I can help. Can't promise, but I'd love to make things make better sense if I can, or use a neat feature of it better. It's a really nice framework, docs just suck in several places.

For real tho I was able to figure out how to add a new non-article page in multiple ways, to compile fontawesome into existing compiling scss, and add in an extension for the CSS framework I use that gives me 'accordions', great for spoilers etc.

Also used fontawesome to add a clock char with hover details for when I have a 'modified' date attribute on an article ^^

There is something inherently funny about the mental image of someone using a shoe for a completely absurd purpose.

Don't have a synth? No problem! Just sneeze into a shoe repeatedly for the perfect sound.

Me: *fights with poor documentation for hours until triumphantly getting his <framework> to incorporate a new page and feature* This was hard but I got it!
techbwOwOs usually: well you just didn't read the docs duh
Docs: You just... *gesticulates into a shoe* do it.

WHATS LONGER THAN BEING LONG?

DOUBLE WORD

ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT

140GB? Whew lads, I really let that S3 storage grow for cached content! Running a cleanup overnight to pare it down to the last 60 days, may pare further after. Apologies if this causes any performance degradation!
