@zkat 👋 I'm building Dropserver, an application server/platform for hosting personal web services.

No blockchains or anything web3, just an attempt to give users control over the code that they interact with on the internet, without throwing the whole client-server model out the window.

dropserver.org

(It's still very new and far from generally usable)

my Japanese-inspired programming language, Haku, is coming along nicely. I try to work on it a little every day, and I have now the drafts for the parser, abstract syntax tree, AST reader and a Scheme emitter, as well as an input source reader that can handle vertical text.

I wonder why anyone would consider using this language. It is hard to write programs in and there are no advantages to using it as it is quite basic. But creating the language is a lot of fun.

Conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting... the truth is more frightening, nobody is in control. The world is rudderless.

I just launched a new art project in the form of a Mastodon bot that will slowly tell a story over the course of three weeks by posting a drawing every day. You can follow it at @dailystory

The bot post the first image on Monday April 12 and post a new image everyday at 6 pm UTC (as long as nothing breaks).

I hope you all enjoy it.

I've been on the Fediverse for over 4 years now and we still can't filter boosts from our list timelines. Will this ever change?

If you are into text-based interfaces, such as Linux terminals or text-based web browser, you would love the look of gemini:// pages. Wow.

I love it. We need more pages on Gemini
