This post by Julia Evans (author and artist of the amazing Bite Sized Linux zine) caught my eye. I can’t tell if this is an old-man-computer thing or if it’s a legitimate troubling trend (probably both), but as consumer web sites increasingly become a Squarespace/Wix sort of thing and not a DIY sort of thing, the DIY tools and infrastructure seem to be increasingly non-deterministic and flakey.

A Content-Type header just vanishing, multiple hosting infrastructure providers shrugging their shoulders, and the web site owner not having the technical tools to diagnose the problems themselves (due to choices made by hosting infrastructure providers). All of it’s not good.
