just found out letsencrypt can do wildcard certs... since march 2018. can't catch all the news as it happens I guess. for some reason I thought they were still working on it.

Punk Rock

The whole think that makes "punk rock" "punk rock" so to speak is the narrative. The story the scene.

The notion of why somethings aren't done anymore, and the few rules that exist, are, because of these stories which are often personal failure.

This is because the subculture allows for personal growth. You are not just allowed, but encouraged to learn from your own life experience and that of others.

So when you see hipsters, who just see the outrageous incidents and just want to do something wild, without consequences, you have to understand being a punk rocker past the age of 20 is about living with consequences, and dealing with the harsh cruel realities of life.

Consumerism is devoid of any personal growth. It just wants to sell you the high and good feeling of when you made the mistakes.

w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/Worl was searching for the origin of the names of the "back" and "forward" button (since they seem like they're not really named in a consistent way. one ends with "ward" and the other doesn't. maybe back and fore? to and fro? backwards, forwards? backward, forward?) Looks like there was, back, previous, and next.

If a place and name was chosen for a .plan file today, where and what would it be?

Are there mailing list software that can require periodic re-opt-in so if subscribers just ignore the emails eventually they stop showing up?
