Django is Irritating Feb. 14th 2022

Following an Ubuntu upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04, I forgot that Django is the undisputed king of deprecation. This wouldn't have necessarily been a problem, but this is also the release where Ubuntu decided to do horrible things to Python 2.7. The old version of Django I was using stopped functioning with fastcgi and reported some error about flup. Even installing flup through pip didn't fix it, so I'm stuck migrating the code from Django 1.6 to 2.2.

I know literally nobody is reading this, but it makes me feel better to write it.
