Cool, I got my personal site running with SSL on a new host! https://alignedleft.com
Winter break side project: Get all personal sites, domains, DNS in order. Move sites off formerly beloved host WebFaction (recently acquired by shady GoDaddy). Currently testing Gandi.net hosting, which includes free and auto-installed SSL certs. I may finally move to HTTPS! Better late than never.

Inspiration ↓ http://feed.grantcuster.com/post/20181221T221008155Z Lots of great stuff – especially for what I've been thinking about lately – in this interview with Folkert Gorter and Jon-Kyle Mohr. from http://v-e-n-u-e.com/Life-Online-An-Interview-with-Folkert-Gorter-and-Jon-Kyle-Mohr via https://twitter.com/jakedowsmith/status/1076210819157975045
@pixelpeanut hey welcome! Love this username. :)
News flash: After an evening of hacking, our free and open source Disqus clone https://schnack.cool/ now supports OAuth sign-in via 🐘 Mastodon!
(so if you want to put a comment form on your static blog/website and want to allow your users to sign in via Mastodon, this might be for you)
This vis.social experiment has been running now for nearly a year. Can you believe it? Your consideration donations to cover hosting fees have been put to good use, but the vis.social balance is now down to zero, so I'm covering costs myself.
If you like this strange place and want it to continue, I’d appreciate a small one-time donation:
Please indicate that your donation is for vis.social. 💰 📈 ✅
