I refuse to run Docker containers inside of Linux Containers so my options are…
- Install manually and make upgrading a pain in the ass
- Don't use the app

As much as I would *love* to use it, the reliance on Docker for managing 100% of the stack is a *hard* no. Figuring out how the image has changed between releases would make manual maintenance absolute hell and I am unwilling to shoulder that burden.

Not everyone is *able* to use Docker and not everyone is *willing* to use Docker. By not supporting any other deployment method, you are preventing some individuals from using what could be *the* application they've spent years looking for.

Let the admin decide how to architect their own systems. They know their backend better than you do.

The 2x3 block sextants 🬵🬺🬱🬏 is nicer than both braille ⢀⣴⣿⣷⣦⣄⡀and quarters ▟▙▖. Less jagged results would be possible by also using cut-corner-block teletext glyphs🭇🭄🭍🭑🬽.

Struggling to deal with the organisations shunning the FSF for the sake of inclusivity and equality

who are still comfortable with Google and IBM's patronage, orgs who are doing a great job ensuring that the future (w/biased AI, algos) will be very unequal and shut out minorities.

I've just now found a spiritual predecessor of the terminal for I'm going to study this in more detail - in particular its message passing between clients.

MGR published to the net in 1989, X windows alternative, with multiple clients and raster/vector graphics for interactive UI clients over serial links, built from a foundation of ANSI escape sequences.

"What’s funny to think about is that if instead C had not done that and used 1-based indexing, people today would certainly be claiming how C is superior for providing both 1-based indexing with p[i] and 0-based pointer offsets with p + i."
