Ubuntu 20.04.1 upgrade


We successfully did the first upgrade of, to Ubuntu 20.04.1, with a little bit of downtime.

Please report any broken stuff to either me (~lucitoast) or ~breadw!

We have Gemini User Capsules


Thanks to a new gemini server, we have set up user capsules for everyone on So if you point your favorite gemini client at <gemini://>, for instance, you’ll see individual user pages. You can also see a listing at <gemini://>.

What is Gemini?

Gemini is a new texty protocol that sits somewhere between gopher and http. Check it out at, or of course <gemini://>.

For bakers

You should have a user directory under /var/gemini/bakers/. Feel free to drop your *.gmi files directly under there, or symlink your directory to your /home/breadw. The server does have CGI capabbilities, but the admins haven’t set any of that up yet. If you’d like to take a crack at some dynamic Gemini content, please contact one of them (man 7 admins).

Join us in Nomic!


We’ve been baking up a storm here at, and one of the things we’ve been working on is a game of nomic. It’s a game where the rules can change any time, and in fact that’s the point! Check out ~lucitoast’s page on nomic for more information. When you’re ready to join (if you’re a baker already, that is), make a pull request on the tildegit repo adding your name in the players folder.

We also discuss the game on our NNTP server (oh, right, did you know we have an NNTP server? It’s pretty cool) at bread.nomic.

According to the first round of rules, a game can’t start til there are 5 players, so come join us!

We’re baking!


Breadpunk is officially live! We don’t have a ton of services yet, but if you join us you can come say hi on IRC, build your own web page, gopher hole, gemini constellation, or email other bakers.

We’re going to be adding other stuff soon, so come on by!
