It uses the IndieWeb Rel-me:

@megabyteGhost yes, rel=me! have an hyperlink from your website to your mastodon account, with the rel="me" attribute, and that's it!

@chirrolafupa I love that you point out "to make sure that these bytes are not read as instructions by the cpu, it's a good practice to precede them with the BRK instruction"

@chirrolafupa that was excellent :tealheart: I looooove this series. This should be downloadable as a book at the end of the week!

As far as I'm concerned, I'm done programming language hopping.

Added the option to right-click drag on the scrollbar to "crawl"(slowly move up and down) as opposed to dragging the scrollbar with left-click. I'm really enjoying this little UX change.

@syntacticsugarglider I really *really* like the Motivation section of their readme, it is well worth a look for every language designer. (and really, every program that is used by other programs is a language)

Sorting the most common glyphs for further adjustments before emoji export.

This is basically the linja sike font with a few almost invisible tweaks. Maybe I'll simplify some glyphs for readability's sake, in the spirit of sitelen pona pona. I still have some tests to do.

Also, it took me a while to understand the ku glyph (7th on the bottom line), but once you get it, it's pretty obvious and smart.

I’m toying with pascal lately: I really love it :}

@ritualdust i got into the personal website rabbit hole about a year ago and i haven't looked back since. to be honest, the modern web is overrated and gentrified to the core where you have to accept cookies for everything ever as well as dealing with a load of bloat.

i'm glad i got into this rabbit hole, but i wish i was around in the 90's (2001 baby here, now 20 years old) so that i could have experienced the early days of the web instead of experiencing it through second hand nostalgia.

Everyonce in a while, I find myself implementing various elements of Plan9's UI into other projects, and doing the legwork makes me realize how every single design decision has a strong technical reason. They made absolutely no concessions by designing something that would lead to a suboptimal implementation.


I've been quite inspired recently by finding a ton of cool personal websites and wikis and thought I would share my views on how freeing it is to make your own:
