Of all the peojects I've made over the years, not many deserve their own standing blogpost either because (a) it is too ephemeral and a thread of 512-character long microblogs is enough or (b) it is more fitting to write proper documentation for it instead (ironic when I build my blog with MkDocs). But the few that do, are here.
Projects below are sorted reverse chronologically (most recent first).
In September 2021 I broke my wrist in a (fairly stupid) cycling accident. This led to a two-month-long quest for a pair of blinkers for my bicycle. I made all sorts of mistakes along the way, as I always do, and this blogpost has all that yelling-at-past-myself covered. It also covers some actual project details.
On April Fool's Day, 2020, I launched a mock Mastodon login page at
https://social.fkfd.me (now defunct) that rickrolled anyone that clicked
the links or buttons. It was more sophisticatedly designed than most other
rickrolling attempts (it's weird to compare trolling technique, I know) in
that hovering your cursor over the links doesn't immediately reveal your
evil intent; the URL shown is totally legit, and it takes another round of
carefully set-up nginx configs to redirect you to the classic music video.
Because of restrictions in AGPL that Mastodon is distributed under, I decided not to release the code itself but rather to write a guide on how I made it. The codeberg repo that came along was unlicensed.
As I said, this was a impulse project that's faded into the past. It is 2022 as I write this. Isn't this crazy?
