502 Bad Gateway errors on nginx server

I now have Calibre Content Server running with nginx as a virtual host, which has received a SSL certificate from Certbot for security's sake. They all run on Ubuntu 20.04 on a VPS. And I also set up a startup service that runs Calibre: Code: /opt/calibre/calibre-server /home/ubuntu/Calibre --enable-local-write --enable-auth --auth-mode "basic" --ban-after 5 --ban-for 5 --log /home/ubuntu/log/calibre.log Most of the time Calibre runs great, but I get 502 Bad Gateway error about twice ...

Small Organized Spaces ~ Bathroom Organizer for Hair & Makeup Products

Hi everyone! There’s something you may not know about me. When it comes to my ensuite bathroom, I’m not a very tidy girl. I like to see all my things and access them quickly. Is that too much to ask?

How do I know it’s working? Well I’m actually tidying up after myself. That says a lot, ha! And that’s because when the...

Some ‘Gun Rights Leaders’ are Endorsing the Absolute Wrong Idea on Fighting Crime

The Vanquest Markhor-45 Pack A Hard Use, Real World Review

5 Reasons Why Democrats’ Extremist Gun Control Will Always Fail

Gun Control Background Checks U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- With the launch of their frontal assault on firearms rights via H.R. 8 and H.R. 127, Capitol Hill Democrats have made it clear they are not interested in facts or the “common sense” their gun control campaign perennially claims to represent, and instead provided all the justification necessary for a hard-hitting pro-rights ad campaign by a grassroots gun rights organization now heading into its second week. Ammoland News did some homewo...

Here’s why California celebrates Arbor Day on March 7 and not in April

Arbor Day is observed by most Americans as a day to plant a tree in late April. But in California we celebrate early. California’s Arbor Day is recognized on March 7, which is horticulturalist Luther Burbank’s birthday. Burbank developed more than 800 varieties of fruits, flowers and vegetables over his career in California. After he grew 20,000 little prune trees, or seedlings, in only nine months, Californian farmers began calling him the “Plant Wizard.” Burbank had famous friends in high plac...

Almost Half the United States has Constitutional Carry

Image from radical gunnuttery, scaled by Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In 2021, the philosophy of states’ law on the Second Amendment right to bear arms fall into three broad categories. They are: Constitutional (permitless) Carry (green). In this situation, no permit is required to carry a loaded handgun, either openly or concealed, in most public spaces most of the time.

Ugh, Penguin Random House Reader "Rewards"

The reward program from Penguin excludes a surprisingly high amount of their books, and I think it's gotten worse recently. The last two digital purchases do not seem eligible for their reward program. Now I searched for Later by Stephen King, which is a book released this month and which I purchased a paperback of (still waiting for it to arrive). Even this one is not eligible for rewards according to their page. At first I figured they were excluding some of their older, cheaper backlog, b...

How to attract beneficial insects to your garden

Early spring is a time of hope, optimism, and figuring out what to plant in your vegetable garden. As you decide what kind of tomatoes, peppers, and herbs you want to grow, you may want to consider planting some flowers with those vegetables. Flowers add color and visual interest to vegetable gardens. Try planting purple alyssum with Japanese eggplants. Marigolds and nasturtiums look great with bell or chili peppers. Purple basil with tomatoes and white alyssum next to dark cooking greens can re...
