[cdi link voice] i can't wait to rebuild the alt+h website from scratch when i switch to a vps and actually implement fucking version control this time

ruby tutorial: ruby is pretty similar to python
me, who is very familiar with python: oh ok cool this should be a breeze
ruby tutorial: also integers are objects with methods. look how you do for loops!
me: what the fuck what the fuck what the f

oh no guess who's considering migrating to linux again

anyway, i'm going through the odin project at the moment because it's getting to the point where my one term of learning frontend web development skills isn't covering my responsibilities as a webmaster any more
all i've done so far is set up a linux vm and install rails through the command line but i'm feeling pretty accomplished

text editors, accessibility gripe 

any resources out there that can explain the skills and knowledges required to run a vps for people who have only used basic, managed-by-the-provider web hosting before? asking for a me.

hey mastodon, do you know of any good guides on how to write effective content warnings? we're reviewing how we ask people to cw things on the alt+h server in light of discord's new spoiler tags and thought information like that would be useful to include

i wrote a small post about why people in otherkin and therian circles don't talk about shifting any more. i'm sharing it here specifically because i'm aware that my perspective is limited to tumblr and adjacent communities and i want to hear people's thoughts on whether that holds true in other spaces and why not if not!
take a look? vagabondsun.dreamwidth.org/206

i think itd be good for us to do like, a postmortem on how the whole thing went and what we've learned and whatnot but i....... don't know how to do those....... hated writing that kinda thing in college and just get big ol mental blocks when i try to think what to include

new years resolutions 

after conversing with a few separate instance admins, seems the prevailing opinion is that accounts representing organizations are a no-no. which is a reasonable position!

i guess, then, i'll stick to just talking about what alt+h is getting up to as myself, in all those organic and personable ways one can as an individual. since i actually really give a shit about what we do, i don't think that'll be hard :P

i wanna talk about the implications of furry acceptance for broader alterhuman acceptance here but its 8am rn so i cant formulate a take better than

sonicfox... good

i want to ask abt the etiquette of running an account representing an organization (namely Alt+H. no surprises there)

on the one hand, i think there's a huge crowd of non- and alterhumany people on mastodon that we'd love to be working with and hearing from. but it'd be very easy for such an account to just become a very impersonal self-promotion machine.
is there a precedent for organization-accounts working successfully in the fediverse? instances suited for it? things to keep in mind? etc?

i would like to, eventually, offer my services as a graphic designer, freelancey-ways. that seems to be the stuff i churn out enough of to actually comprise a portfolio, as opppsed to my illustration stuff. we'll see, eh?
