Nice nice nice
Tonight I got my old journal code working under the same username as now runs my robnugen.com site.
As of now, my old journal setup may be seen at https://temp.robnugen.com/cgi-bin/journal.pl
Also as of now, the final few entries were written in markdown, so the journal.pl code does not know how to display them.
I found https://web-stage.metacpan.org/pod/Markdent::Parser which is up to date, but I am too tired now to figure out how to install it, much less use it.

Tired. Very happy Fred helped me with journal so much. 2 hours now must sleep before 7:30am meeting yay

I created several issues on the old journal code, mostly to fix the markdown.
I fixed a couple issues, including one I assigned to Fred and then realized I know how to fix it.
I just about think we can skip installation of a full Markdown parser and just do it with some Perl magic because I haven’t used that much markdown magic..
For the past 30 minutes I have been trying to get the above changes since this morning to be applied to the other repo, which has the same file, but different repo history.
git format-patch (oh that reminds me of another markdown
thing I need to do for backticks..)
But when I try to apply the patch to the other repo, it keeps saying
[canyonville]$ git am 0001-what.patch Applying: what error: 2021/07/20quite-closer-to-having-journal-entries-in-old-format.md: does not exist in index Patch failed at 0001 what Use 'git am --show-current-patch' to see the failed patch When you have resolved this problem, run "git am --continue". If you prefer to skip this patch, run "git am --skip" instead. To restore the original branch and stop patching, run "git am --abort".
As best I can tell,
DOES exist in index.

Just for completeness, here are the steps, starting from my local machine:
$ ssh bfr
