Hanging out with my buddies.
The #sakura trees in our neighborhood are showing their colors, and they're beautiful!
I was thinking a little bit about older science fiction, like ones involving space travel, exploration, etc.
I miss how these older shows and movies drove home this feeling of.. utter vastness of space. I'm pretty sure it was a fortunate byproduct of just how it was difficult to do effects back then. Now, sure why not throw in hundreds of ships orbiting a planet. But in the 80s? One of these ships would be out there, in the unknown edges of space, and it REALLY felt that way because you hardly ever see anything else.
Interstellar did a great job with this; the crew in that movie feel incredibly isolated.
Anyway, that's my random #space thought of the day.
It's been a couple rough days over here, had some sick little kiddos. Everyone is mostly better, which is excellent!
I'm looking forward to working on some personal project stuff tonight, and to go to bed early. :)

It took some doing, but I got Gitea running on allthe.codes! I like its featureset, so I think we're good here for a bit. I'll be tying in mailgun later this week, so email notifications and such can go out.

I've done some more testing with cgit, but overall it's a little too barebones for me. I'm going to get #gitea installed instead.
I found in the full list of settings that I can disable all markdown rendering, and can make it so avatars for users are only ones that they upload to the server. It's nice to turn off gravatar!
I'm hoping to have this running in a couple days.
Last night, Tara and I were reminiscing about vhs movie rental places. Like... that used to be a fun event! You'd get your friends, all pile in a car, and drive to Video hut or something. Pick out 2-3 movies for the Friday night, then swing by a pizza place to get a couple pies. Head home, and burn through the movies. That was a fun outing. I kinda miss that.

I am running Debian 9, and it wasn't immediately obvious how to get cgit running.
I found this good piece of reference material that got me to the finish line! Of at least getting it installed. I took what was shared to make my own vhost config for nginx, and eventually that worked. (I am testing it on a different domain before using
allthe.codes for it.)
Reading further though.. do I really need to manually edit
/etc/cgitrc to add a repo? I wanted this to be a place where people could fairly easily create a new repo. Hm.
I will be attempting to utilize cgit first!
It is comforting to me that raindrops on a window look exactly the same as they did when I was a kid. It's a constant decoration throughout my life.
