I've been through this kinda rigmarole before when I tried using diaspora*, and the end result was that I completely abandoned it because I wasn't getting any meaningful interactions out of it compared to Twitter. Which was a shame, because I really liked diaspora*.

The problem, of course, is that you will inevitably gravitate to whichever platform nets you more interaction. And crossposts really don't engender organic engagement. They feel robotic and distant, largely because they're just that

ugh i really hope crossposters don't slowly choke mastodon like they did to diaspora*

if you're just crossposting everything you tweet on birdsite then what even is the point of making a mastodon account? that's glorified spam at worst, and a recipe for abandonment.

Guys computers used to be cool. They haven't gotten better in some 30 years.

Like holy fuck software today is extremely garbage. No one gives a shit about optimization and you need a beefy computer just to browse the web. Fucking hell.

I still kind of wish I could figure out how to get trwnh.com/portfolio in nginx to recognize the request URI *after* the /portfolio/ part, and successfully reverse-proxy it to apache... or to an nginx subdomain. but with URL masking.

i gave up because it was too much of a headache and nothing i tried would work. and i don't want to serve my entire website over apache...

...anyway speaking of which, i finally threw up something that's not so ugly at trwnh.com (with a link to the old site with all the info at the top, because i haven't found the time to rework that info into something readable)

and trwnh.com/portfolio redirects to portfolio.trwnh.com because it was easier to run koken on a subdomain instead of a subdirectory... sadly.

Just switched from google as a default search engine for all my browsers to duckduckgo. #fuckoffgoogle

- When you find a creator that produces things you like and makes them available under a license that allows for copying:

- - Support that creator financially

- - Copy the hell out of the thing

- - Talk about the thing publically, so that other people can do 1 and 2 above.

Something like this... But I actually can't come up with more than 2 first steps that involve like, an actionable button

(Maybe the final step should be something like "Start tooting" and a button that just links to the web interface idk)

finally caved and set up apache on my webserver to run alongside nginx .-. i kinda wanted to do everything in nginx but i just have to accept that .htaccess files make things easier for some dynamic apps

Ways artists can facilitate the archival of their work with a minimum of effort:

Upload your work to Archive.org

They are a non-profit based in the US with offsite backups in several other countries around the world.

They run the Wayback machine and some other stuff, and they let you upload anything you make, for free, for as long as they continue to exist.

Any content you own can be uploaded. If it is CC or PD content, you can specify that in the upload.

Time to duck duck go, if you haven't already.

Japanese use grass(草) because "www" seems to be on the grass.

Why use "w" is because laughing in Japanese is "warau".
