Chīsai is aimed at people who need a free solution to have their own small space on the internet without falling into the CMS install and maintenance craziness.
It answers three very important things for me when it comes to websites:
1. It should be easy to modify by someone else
2. It should be durable and long lasting
3. Each person should own the code of its website
That's why, despite not liking centralization, it uses Github. It's a first step into OWNING the code + durable hosting.
Chisai is now available for everyone! 🔥
It's a microsite generator, editable and hosted on github. Everything is pre-configured and it's easy to customize the content.
Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.
Aaaaaand it's done! Sorry for the crappy photo, I'm gonna make some nicer ones tomorrow, probably.
I spent parts of January working on a new kind of search engine. Instead of indexing the unfathomable internet, it focuses on enabling search for neighbourhoods of related websites—webrings, or other kinds of topically similar sites.
After a new desoldering pump, I was able to desolder the micro 💪 I lost most of the through-hole pads, so I'll need to buy a new one.
And today, while trying to desolder the Arduino, I melted my solder sucker 😭
I soldered all the components of my Redox keyboard this weekend. I was *very* proud of my soldering skills. Until I found out that I had soldered the Arduino upside down! Each part of the keyboard has the exact same PCB, simply flipped over, so the Arduino in each part needs to be soldered accordingly. And I soldered both facing up...
I never know what I'm talking about, nor whether what I say is true
