Hetzner Cloud auto-provisioning for FreeBSD.

I’m planning on moving a VM I have in DigitalOcean away from them to Hetzner. It might work out, or it might not. The main reason is that their prices have gone up sufficiently to be annoying and their remaining FreeBSD support is rather hosed. If it doesn’t, then even then I think it’ll be worth playing with to get a feel for how their systems work and to maybe prep something to set up WordPress for a friend there.

Fork Awesome

A fork of Font Awesome from before the licensing got confusing and it got awkward to use. I’d switched to using their SVGs, but the copyright messages attached to them imply they’re under a commercial license, so I’d prefer to use something with more straightforward licensing. This covers all my uses.

Because I’d like to make this usable again, as mine ended up unusable, not least because Asus screwed up with the onboard storage and Google’s last update didn’t fix TRIM support.
