I've been doing the 100 Days to Offload challenge wrong: the tag goes into toots, not into the blog posts themselves. Whoops! Good thing toot editing exists now.

I finally made version 2.0 of my Uses page!

It's shorter and simpler than the previous version, so nobody has to read long lists anymore.

This is the first version, so it's subject to change over time. I'm welcome to any feedback on this!

Also, for those who missed my blog post on this, I also now have /buttons for site buttons and badges!

Mirror

darylsun

I decided to revise the pages of my blog, so now /about mirrors my omg.lol profile page, and the new /now page mirrors my omg.lol Now page. The content of my blog's previous /links page has been merged with /about, and the /links slug itself will be used for something else in the future.

So if you've linked to my /links page before, I'm so sorry for the broken link! I'm still figuring out how to organize my blog and what to include in it.

Finally, the #Jerboa app now doesn't show the downvote button when signed into #Beehaw anymore. Before, I kept fat-fingering and hitting downvote by accident, which resulted in Jerboa crashing because Beehaw has downvotes disabled. Whew!

I'm so tempted to submit my blog to webrings and blog directories, so that I'll have more readers (friends) to discuss topics with.

On the other hand, I don't want to deal with hate or spam, and I don't want to direct people to another blog that might die in a year.

Decisions, decisions...

Today, I bought my own domain! I've set things up so it shows my #omglol profile page. You can find it here: https://darylsun.page/

(Since I'm on the Lite plan which allows only one custom domain, #AnonAddy also uses my own domain now, instead of my omg.lol address.)

Not gonna lie, I'm excited to find out what cool things I can do with my domain.

Spiral notepad

After a conversation on irc.social.lol and some thought, I decided that TiddlyWiki isn't the right tool for me. My note-taking style just doesn't fit it.

I like Notesnook and its rich-text editor, but my note-taking style doesn't fit it either.

So I switched back to Standard Notes. They've fixed the bug that broke third-party editors, so I can use Rich Markdown Editor again. I write and edit my notes with Markdown styling in plain text, then switch to RME for a preview.

I think #DemonSlayer: #KimetsuNoYaiba is an amazing manga/anime. Yes, it's a standard shounen work, but media doesn't always have to be "deep" or "complex" to be amazing. Sometimes I just want to root for one Good™ boy with a big heart and a determination to fight evil.

"... I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be most unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument..." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_of_tolerance

Notebook

I want to try tracking the books, TV shows, and movies I consume again... I used to do so years ago, when I got interested in #QuantifiedSelf and #LifeLogging, but I stopped because I failed to keep my tracking apps up-to-date. Then, I jumped down the privacy rabbithole. Nowadays, though, my memory runs at maximum capacity, so I think recording things will help offload my brain. I'm still looking for and trying out privacy-friendly tracking apps that can help.
