I guess it would be called a "green screen of death" on a pip-boy.

Suddenly, I have an urge to upgrade all systems to TLS 1.3 with ESNI.

Grokmirror 2.0 -- 20% of time spent adding cool features, 80% of time spent making it work for replicating 30,000 repositories to Beijing over totally crap connections.
