Brain, no. I'm trying to work on website stuff. There is not time to sit down with the lyrics of Gary Numan's "Cars" and, idk, the Mabinogion or something, and see if it can be filked into "Caers".

"With the success of Operation Warp Speed, we've seen an immense decrease in rates of serious illness and death," said Rep. Mike Garcia, R-Saugus, earlier in the week. "Sweeping government mandates on vaccination and mask wearing, like those we've seen from Sacramento, the City of Los Angeles and the CDC, based on unpublished studies that have not been subjected to peer review are simply not warranted – especially when it could cost Americans their jobs and livelihoods. When will it end?"

Hang on. The point of "Operation Warp Speed" was to develop vaccines as quickly as possible, yes? Sooo.... it was a success... but.... we shouldn't... use... its product?

What the fuck?

That's not a rhetorical question. Someone tell me, what the actual fuck?

joshuawise: hiya Ed. was good to see you in the club two weeks ago!
joshuawise: also totally wild. I don't think I've ever seen an entire club sing along to Wolfsheim - Once In A Lifetime
joshuawise: later, I think during Mollie's second set, there was a big crowd of ... non-goth-dressed folks ... packing the stage, 'woop woop'ing along to VNV - Tomorrow Never Comes, which is *also* something I've never seen before, and to be honest, something I don't have any need to see again
joshuawise: though, as far as I can tell, they were doing an excellent job of buying alcohol from the bars at the club, so, you know, support your local venues!

Me, facetiously, after having looked up the Wikipedia entry on hovercraft to find out when they were invented: But when were eels invented? (reference)
[personal profile] enotsola: You'd have to ask Jesus.
Me: ...

Me: ......Is he widely known as the inventor of eels?

Trusting SSL certificate for mail on iPadOS 14

I have mail set up on eristic.net. It's shared hosting, so the underlying "real" server name is actually a subdomain of asoshared.com. Thus, whenever asoshared.com's security certificates are renewed (as just happened a few days ago), mail apps complain about the name mismatch and I have to approve an exception to trust the certificate anyway. No big deal, so long as I'm able to do that; it was no problem in Thunderbird. It had also previously been working in the Mail app on my iPad, so I must have been able to do similar exceptions there as well. I thought there should be place I could just click "Trust" on the warning, but this time, for the life of me I can't figure out how to trust the certificate. This sort of thing and this seem like varying amounts of "maybe not even the right solution" plus "seems like more work than I should have to go through" plus "I might not be able to accomplish all that anyway" (there is not actually any certificate for eristic.net, and I'm not sure I could create one). I wondered if maybe this had changed between iPadOS 13 and 14, but that first link even more puzzlingly gives me the idea that I should have already run into this problem in 13 (and maybe even in 12), yet I don't remember it being the case - I certainly have never done anything like the solution outlined in the first link. Does anyone have any advice? This entry was crossposted from https://arethinn.dreamwidth.org/2771229.html, where there are comment count unavailable comments.

Is there a group term for fans of Homestuck? Like "Potterheads" or "Whovians" (or wow are there a lot more of these than I realized). Because [personal profile] enotsola just said "Homestuxuals" while trying to say some completely other word (no Homestuck context whatsoever) and I think that's kind of a neat one.
