The beginning of the end

This writer's days with are suddenly seeming numbered, as a script I've used for years centered around this curl call:

curl -s -L

no longer returns anything.

Browser works fine against the url, of course. But no longer the curl call, that I might parse things to my liking.

I can't fucking express how much I fucking hate “progress” that interferes with doing things intelligently.

Okay, it might not be's doing. My be my internet provider, or some other assfuck in between.

But “who” matters not. I'm not going to copy/paste from some goddamned browser tab content into a reasonable editor when I already had content coming down into my editing context completely to my liking for years and years.
