til gideon the ninth and its sequel have been translated to japanese!

my favorite books in the whole universe, and they have a mere four ratings on amazon jp!?

i encouraged my beloved to buy and read them to see what she thinks, maybe we can get a fifth five star review up there

whose got two thumbs and a reverse proxy through wireguard to the home lab this guy 😎

it actually isn't all that mindblowing or novel, i've encountered two different masto admins who serve their whole multiple users instance just like this

on the other hand my roadblocks to self-hosting are finally clear! cheap vps serving light stuff, but proxying to chonky servers whenever there's heavy lifting

no anxiety-inducing holes poked in my cable modem's firewall

no violating my isp's tos (i think)

but apparently there's plenty of varieties of himalayan salt licks these days too

spoiler (Harrow the Ninth) 

when i noticed this jewel of a joke i could only picture the author giggling, thoroughly satisfied with her own wit

for readers with stupendous foresight and attention to detail it's another clue to make you feel smart when you correctly predict the reveal

for idiots like me it's a flower that blooms only upon the second (or in my case third) read through
