Just found a file on my PC called "mylife.jpg" from January 31, 2006:

Anyone who's experienced with game engine network programming interested in helping GZDoom get its client-server multiplayer branch fully working? Here's a brief report on its current state from one of the developers, I can put you in touch if you're interested:

A year ago I tried learning ActivityPub, and more or less failed. I was confounded by a spec that was so abstract I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Turns out I was missing some key things.

I have written a guide to learning about ActivityPub that I wish existed a year ago when I first set out to learn how to write social media servers that conform to the spec:

I haven’t worked on this for months, but I just got a new music drop from XOC and it’s so good. Posting about this project again in part to guilt myself to work on this again.

@Ravenlock Thanks for letting me know we were broken. Also new DuckTales is the shit.

Hey all, sorry about the server downtime :( Not sure what happened but the server was stuck pegged at 200% CPU. We're alive again.

I have this tab open in my browser by default, and read it every day, but never post.

Sorry for the lengthy downtime overnight, migrating all the existing media to S3 took a long time and I fell asleep. But it's done now, and we shouldn't be running out of disk space again (at least, not because of media uploads).

To test things out, here's a picture of a cat.

I realize fansites are mostly without purpose in 2018, and have been replaced by wikis and subreddits, but 1) the older fansites are still often linked as primary sources by those newer sites and 2) fan-sites-as-fan-art is just a fun medium and is frustratingly uncommon at this point :(

It's been over a decade since I made a fan site but I got the itch again a couple weeks ago, and started helping my friend redesign his old Venture Bros website, inspired by the look of the art book that came out this year.

It's been a really relaxing exercise, to design something simple with no external constraints or directives, but with an extensive visual bible to refer to whenever desired.
