@solderpunk hey... so i'm playing around in python3 with a basic service wrapper for my initial port listener. Mind having a look and seeing if anything seems drastically out of the norm so far? It's mostly just a combo of googled code so far.
So that DNS not working in Firefox while on VPN thing turns out to be a bigger issue than just the hotel. I'm at my parents' place and it was doing the same on their network.

“Without Any Warrants, CBP Searched My Devices at the Airport” https://theintercept.com/2019/06/22/cbp-border-searches-journalists/ CBP loves this. They are specifically hired because they get their jollies from this sort of power tripping. They are vindictive by their nature and do not care.
Now that some crazy individual has stood up gemini://gemini.conman.org, I had an unexpected urgent need for a Gemini client. So, I hastily converted VF-1 from gopher to Gemini and have named the result AV-98 (after the AV-98 Ingram, https://patlabor.fandom.com/wiki/AV-98_%22Ingram%22, Patlabor > Macross, fight me).
