I've seen the writing on the wall,
and while for now you can configure Firefox not to use DoH,
I'm not confident enough to think it will remain that way.
To that end,
I've finally set up my own DoH server for use at Chez Boca.
It only involved setting up my own CA to generate the appropriate certificates,
install my CA certificate into Firefox,
configure Apache to run over HTTP/2
(THANK YOU SO VERY XXXXXXX MUCH GOOGLE FOR SHOVING THIS HTTP/2 XXXXXXXX DOWN OUR THROATS!—no, I'm not bitter)
and write a 150 line script that just queries my own local DNS,
it's more XXXXXXX secure or some XXXXXXXX reason like that.
And then I had to reconfigure Firefox using the “advanced configuration page” to tweak the following:
Firefox configuration for DoH
network.trr.mode to “3” instead of “2” because it's coming.
I know it's just coming so I might as well get ahead of the curve.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
