I was getting a selenium.ElementNotInteractableException: "Element such-and-such is not reachable by keyboard" error on a scraper script that I had to update for site changes. Checking the manpage for xvfb-run, I found that it did no logging unless a filespec was passed with the -e option. So I edited the Makefile and tried again. Of course it worked that time. I swear, computers will do all kinds of kinky shit when you know you're not looking. As soon as they know they'll get caught, they act like one would expect.

I wonder if this VPS has become self-aware, like Mike in TMIAHM.
