Moving things here

Thursday, March 14th, 2024

Over the last month or two I've been quietly moving a few things over to a personal server I now have that costs me at most $4 a month. There's this journal, which runs on some (very rough) software that I wrote myself, some of my git repos, a bug tracker, a few other bits and pieces. I just need to figure out how to set up the backup service my hosting provider offers and then I feel like I'll be in a place to turn off some of my other accounts from around the internet, chiefly GitHub. The only major thing that doesn't run on this server (and never will) is my e-mail, for which I've been using Fastmail for the last few years, and which I recommend.

I'm going to be transitioning over all the posts I made on Cohost that I would like to keep to this journal, keeping their post dates intact, and I'm thinking that I might start to post more casual stuff over here. Hopefully this won't mess up people's feed readers as I add older content, but if it does then I appreciate your patience!
