I made my first firefox extension!
It adds a handy button to your toolbar for surfing sites on the #merveilles webring.
You can install it from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/merveilles-webring-surfer/
and you can read the source here: https://github.com/aadilayub/webring-extension
Is #9front supposed to look like this on install? How do I get to the desktop?
Does anyone else feel this need? If I can't find anything like it on the internet, I'm considering building a low-tech, open hardware version of it myself.

Does anyone have any success stories to share?

If you try to tweet a link to https://ddosecrets.com/, this is the error message you'll get. Their Twitter account is suspended. What did they do that's so objectionable?

DDoSecrets does have an official Mastodon account now: @ddosecrets
The authenticity of the account is confirmed here:

Experimenting with a new kind of /learn page on my website
Instead of describing what I have been learning, it's now more of an invitation to join in on my learning adventures
