tip: if you have access to your nginx configuration, consider adding an X-Clacks-Overhead header to your server. Add this line to your server{} block for 443/SSL connections:

add_header X-Clacks-Overhead "<your text here>";

Your text can be as long as you want. I recommend starting with
"GNU Terry Pratchett" and going from there.

This will be invisible to the average viewer, but the message will be sent with every HTTPS response.

@noelle also, if you run multiple vhosts, you can add it to nginx.conf's http{}

@noelle for example, i now have her in all my headers :red_candle:​

@noelle okay, β€œGNU Terry Pratchet” is definitely not what I thought it would be (it sounds like some sort of tongue in cheek Linux tool..). That’s very cool and touching, though!

@noelle This brings me an immeasurable amount of joy πŸ™ πŸ˜‚ 😒

@noelle the glitch-soc/mastodon fork ships with a Clacks Overhead message in memory of Natalie, anyone running the fork who wants to add names to the header can modify a line in config/environments/production.rb
