A lot of human history is just people putting stuff inside them and hoping something good happens.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karaoke#:

> Violent reactions to karaoke singing have made headlines in Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, with reports of killings by listeners disturbed by the singing. In the Philippines, at least a half dozen killings of people singing "My Way" caused newspapers there to label the phenomenon "My Way killings"; some bars refuse to allow the song, and some singers refrain from vocalizing it among strangers.

Last night I decided to finally move my websites from HTTP to HTTPS, a move I've put off for a long time because certificates are expensive, and Let's Encrypt doesn't play nice with Windows, or my webserver software of choice.

But now that I'm running nfg.zone on a Linux box, I've got that latter problem sorted out.

I expected 3-90 minutes to do the job, it took more than four hours to sort out the reverse proxy, 301-redirects, Wordpress, and dozens of hard-coded HTTP links...

But it works!
