My first blog post - the merits and caveats of WriteFreely (and a mini-rant on why I'm never touching Medium ever again):

Decided to switch to Notepad++ instead. Much faster, and apparently someone's actually made proper Markdown syntax support for it.

MobileGap: website that lists open-source apps for Android and iOS, as well as mobile apps built with HTML5.

Announcement: we are testing static pages on and are looking for feedback. How this works:

In your user or org account, create repo called "pages", and push static HTML, Javascript, fonts, CSS, images into this repo. Your content is immediately visible on<username>/​.

For an example, check out and

#vscode is actually really neat and has a lot of great add-ons (VIM bindings!) but I don't trust #Microsoft... enter VSCodium.

Same great software, same great plugins, much better underlying mandate!

Mention of Microsoft product, please don't stone me 

Thinking about whether I should switch from Atom to VSCodium. I do like Atom, but it takes a while to load... and that's with most built-in packages disabled and only a handful of extra ones.

Fediverse tip: want to comment on a #PeerTube video without creating yet another account? Paste the URL to the video into the search bar in Mastodon, then reply to the post that comes up. The reply will federate back to the PeerTube instance as a comment.

#FollowFriday, time to share some accounts I follow:

- @sengi_app a desktop application developed by @NicolasConstant (that works also for #Pixelfed)

- @mondstern a pixelfed account publishing painted logos by @mondstern

- @codeberg for hosting your projects.

- @mmarif the developer of GitNex ( that works with #codeberg

But the important question is, are there any cat videos on PeerTube?

PeerTube Index: search engine for videos across PeerTube instances.

Friendly reminder that instance hosts libre music, with several coming from the Free Music Archive. Very useful if you want to listen to some tracks from FMA, since that website is currently undergoing an overhaul.

Possibly Shutting Down VidCommons 

Does anyone know a safe website for expanding shortened URLs? I found an open-source website called Where Does This Link Go? but it hasn't been updated in years.

FicSave: open-source downloader of works from Fanfiction.Net and several other fanfiction websites. Exports in EPUB, MOBI, and plain text formats. Downloaded works are stored on server for 15 minutes before automatically deleted. Useful for works without an AO3 mirror.

I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival. ~ Audre Lorde

How do you define 'taking care of yourself'? Create a new self-care practice today. Observe your comfort level when it comes to being good to yourself. Discomfort is a wise teacher. ~ Caroline Myss and Peter Occhiogrosso

I want to thank @gemlog for preparing the web-archive version and @LuKaRo for extracting the missing pages from the Google Cache. Would have taken so much longer without you two πŸ™‚
