Migrating personal Git server fun...

Not exactly following


Originally (in 2016) a self-compiled Go binary of GOGS 0.9.99.x

Set up for SSH key-based fetch, push and pull (GOGS own ssh server on 2222)

Upgraded to downloaded binary of


Migrated to Gitea 1.0.2 binary

Found I needed to modify config to continue to SSH pull/push and fetch

Adding SSH Domain and Listen Port


Progressed though Gitea 1.1.4 and 1.2.3 binaries (to ensure database migrations occur appropriately) (Further upgrades likely, Gitea is up to 1.11.1 at time of typing.)


All this so that I can also GPG sign my internal commits 🙃

Pasigis iom da tempo kun interreta tradukisto; kreante po-dosierojn por Known kaj ĝiaj defaŭltaj kromprogramoj. En Esperanto, franca, germana, hispana, klingona ne tradukas al gettext.

Have been spending a little time with an online translator; making po files for Known and its default plug-ins. In Esperanto, French, German, Spanish, Klingon does not translate to gettext for some reason.

You either go for a fright from your youth: the prospect of being embalmed alive in Young Sherlock Holmes.

Or, you quote song lyrics:

Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me
(Galileo) Galileo, (Galileo) Galileo, Galileo Figaro magnifico

Hopefully @macgenie’s Patience will be rewarded 🙃

Movement — Technological progress is coming to the locality; Rapid charging in the supermarket car park

A Polar network rapid charger at the local Co–operative Food shop

Relaxation — circumperambulation of the local country roads

A photograph across the fields towards the East caost


Determination — I will get over 1 million points again…

Score of over 800 thousand points on Flash Gordon pinball

Support — supports on a 3D print of a spool holder ( a support 😁 )

A view of the printbed of a 3D printer, showing a finished print of a spool holder

Relief — when the 3D printer’s error message was only the hotend touching the metal fan shroud.

Ultimaker2 heater error displayed on its OLED display


Persistence — working one’s way through all the filaments of the spectrum, and re–printing when there is under–extrusion 😕

A Newtonian refractive selection of cable chain links in a rainbow of colours


Gratitude — I imagine everyone is thankful this epic splash of subject matter is over 😉


To be continued…?
