I don't really intend to go through much of it other than as a curiosity and to maybe find some of the old things I made; I'm just a little sad at how much of what I did ended up vanishing, and if I can hold onto it, even if I don't intend to use it in a meaningful way, so much the better

devin: Never know, I recovered a 1.6 gb hard drive and only lost about 4k of data from it

Conversations like that only show up in the columns of people who are following both of you; and if you don't want even that, then just using DMs seems to be the best solution

That's what it seems like it would be useful, but it always appeared for me even if I was using the account recently, and it would even show things I'd already liked or replied to (and therefore didn't miss). I think it also might make things a little iffy since you might very well miss things and just assume that the algorithms would show you everything.

Tweetdeck (or really any third-party client) helps that problem immensely because you avoid all the bullshit Twitter does.

But the real problem is that it's easy to follow someone, and follow someone else, and so on, until your timeline(s) are nothing but noise, where it's impossible to find updates by certain people because they're drowned out by everyone else.

I've been keeping a backup of things since I first got my "own" computer in the late 1990s, back around the Final Fantasy VII Citadel days.

It's pretty much all art though, none of the site stuff or any of that. For some reason, the timestamps for the very old stuff says "2003" and I can't figure out why. There are a few non-art things, that I might need for legal reasons or whatever, but it's… pretty much all my major artworks.

Unfortunately I can't read a lot of the files any more as they are for software that no longer works. There's a whole period of openCanvas stuff, for instance. I should probably see if I can find a way to read them and convert them to Photoshop files or something at some point… but ughhhhh… there's a lot of things there I may never get working.

I might still have OpenCanvas somewhere, that was a nice program.

I finally managed to get one of the drives "working" as a VM; Windows XP SP1 with a broken activation, with no apparent way to fix it — none of the techniques on the internet worked. I assume it's just busted. I'll probably try to grab the files off of it later because there's a decent amount of old stuff on there, including some of my old pixel art (yikes)

Speaking of FF7C, I found what appears to be an old screenshot of it with Acmlm's scribbles all over it, as well as some of his old homepage and other random crap. That stuff has got to be ancient.

I still think Mastodon is interesting, if not new and exciting. It's a nicer place than Twitter at least, and a refreshing change from my firehose of a feed with 1000 follows

I really wish we had a better way of showing off art and writing and works in general that wasn't Twitter (or Tumblr or dA) for that matter, because a lot of people do a lot of cool things and I miss out on them all the time

Two solid days of rain here and now it's probably over; a welcome change, but the drive home sure was interesting when I had maybe a thousand feet of visibility. The nice part about living by a mountain is seeing how low the clouds get

Posted on 01-10-18 03:06:25 AM, in I've been keeping a journal lately Link
I don't have much to say about it because most of what I want to say is in the journal. I've been trying to write in it fairly often, as opposed to my old site, because it's just easier to do. The old site is raw HTML and CSS, which isn't bad, but updating it means writing it, previewing it, committing, pushing, pulling... posting in the journal is just writing and hitting a button, and it lets me interact with people in a nice way.

Have you done anything like this? I know for a while LiveJournal was a thing, but that fell out of favor over 11 years ago and Russia took it over (long story). Then there were some of us who were on DeadJournal, or Xanga, or whatever else.

I've been trying to get back into reading. I recently bought a Kindle and with it a few books; the first one I read through was Innumeracy, which (while good) wasn't the one I remembered. It's largely about how people tend to not understand basic numbers, probabilities, and other things, with some nice examples.

More recently is the new-release Fire and Fury, a book about the US's awful president and how much of a fuckup he and his team is. It's... pretty amazing, but quite a bit is stuff I already knew just from following the news around the time.

Also up next on the reading list are Alex Zandra's I Asked For Squid Maids But I Didn't Know I'd Become One! and My Friends And I Were Granted Three Wishes By A Cat Goddess And I Swear I Got Distracted When My Turn Came Around (the latter one first, most likely). I actually tried to start them, but the paragraph formatting is non-standard and doesn't break when different characters talk, so it feels really... cluttered? Dense? One of those.


And I also learned that apparently I can put manga on the kindle so Reading is an expensive hobby...


Edit: I also have this queued up at some point, which I forgot about until checking the 'where did my money go again' section on Amazon

Private journals are really useful too, and one nice thing is that most journal sites have a way to set privacy levels per post, including "only myself". Obviously you're still trusting your host to not be evil, but hey

I actually found some old LJ entries I wrote well over 14 years ago and I think my sentiment is quite different from yours. My old entries are ... yikes

Does the occasional updates to this page count? (one year and 10 years, respectively)

No? Oh, well. I don't even know what I could show off; most of what exists of mine is either something that isn't really good for this or a thing that I haven't actually worked on at all since the original... pah. Maybe this is a good time to redo this ancient thing

Not sure how much you want criticism, but the one thing I think could make this better is if there was some more shading (or even just a line) between the bottom of the right foot shoe and the blanket/sheet. As it is, the colors basically merge together. It's still pretty amazing, though, dang

I wish I could say I read to relax, but most of my reading is just on the crapper at work or when I go to lunch It's too hard to focus otherwise, with so much else wanting my attention.

I just wish I had something to show for it other than monuments to broken dreams.

Technically the homepage already has two different "pseudo-redesigns": this one (sound) and this one. Maybe an excuse to finally make the first one larger, or something.

I think my eyes are just drawn to it because it's an area of high contrast (light foot, dark background). The eye also tends to follow it (head -> baby -> further down the diagonal, the shoe).
