Happy New Year, SDF.

During 2018 I was blessed to meet many interesting, creative, talented, and kind people through SDF, both virtually and in person. My life is richer because of this great community!

Here's looking forward to 2019, in terms of new friendships and in terms of some great new technologies in store for the SDF environment!

🎆 🎇 🎉 🎊

So it looks like Kodachi just deleted all of the poems I'd retrieved from the archive and sorted into individual files. Moving to Manjaro now. Unknown when I'll get the time or energy to pull all of the poems back out again. ...Happy New Year, I guess?

going through the dump of my old blog's poems and uploading the last good ones. Everything should be up by New Year's

Rearranged some things on the gopherhole. also added a new section to root ;)

notable recent @SDF occurrences:

- acted as primary test pubnix for 8 kernel development

- added numbers & improved service

- commissioned dedicated server for freeing the meta-array & improving connectivity for local public radio disc jockeys and listeners alike

- expanded system resources including massive storage space increase

- stabilized sip/telephony services to professional level

- failed to ask me for money even once!

New post: dogpiling thinking about Nutt Godd's demise and return and how I seem to not have learned from what happened in October

The blog directories in the Gopherspace now have stylized menus instead of the raw directories.

Updated website stylesheet. Really liking the new alt colors in Smash 5 ;)

@lucina Thought on what you actually wrote : With HTML, I took a “bottom-up” approach, starting with the W3C specifications documents. With CSS, I tried to do that, but also wound up referring to examples culled from various pages where I tried to figure out how they were getting those effects. That was more than a decade ago, now, when most sites (aside from the 100% Flash ones) had much less in the way of insane script bloat & so on than now. But the specs could still be better-written.

All poems starting with A are now mirrored on the Gopherhole.

Very depressing piece on the state of web browsers and we have a clear winner that takes all which is Chrome/Chromium. This is a scary present and future which Google will determine the direction of the web.
