Colored print. A man and woman sit in a 1910s living room. The man is leaning back in horror as a column of fire and light burns a hole through the floor, the newspaper in his hands, and presumably the ceiling. The woman stares on in a look of shock with an open mouth.

Easily organize email with sub-addressing

Email isn’t going anywhere. No matter how many alternative protocols and chat clients we create. This is not without its reason. It integrates with automation and bots, is an exportable archive of conversations, and makes it easy to include new people in the conversation. Except there is the issue of the all-too-real 200+ a day inbox. A while back, while playing with a Postfix mail server (as you do), I came across an interesting thing called sub-addressing that can help with automatically organizing emails....

Black and white print. A delapidated 1800s farm with tatch roofs and cows laying lazily in the yards. In the foreground a group of ducks are slipping into a pond and a woman is pent over by the pump with a pot in her hands.

Self Hosting

The Web is a public utility in all but legislation at this point. From the smartphone app revolution (for better or worse) to social media, government services and streaming. It’s all online. Not everyone have to self host at home. There is nothing wrong with using a hosting provider, a co-loc, or a service like, Bear Blog or Write Freely. Even Wordpress for that matter, if you want a lot of bells, whistles, and headaches (which is fine, don’t get me wrong, you do you in the online space)....

NUsh Neocities Uploader Script

[Ed.2022-11-05: replaced github/gitlab links with codeberg link] If you were to browse one of the GeoCities archives you might stumble across one of my old homepages. One being an ITC Class project providing (poorly written) walkthroughs for a handful of adventure games, the other being a classic early-2000s GIF and MIDI meddle. The joy of making my own homepage, making mistakes and breaking things while learnig, is one of many reasons I gravitated towards Neocities for my web hosting, as opposed to the multitudtrue At first it was all fun and games....

Black and white engraved illustration. A man in early 1900s clothing stands with his back to us, his hand grasping a large lever. In front of him stands a large mechanical printer. Its sides a collection of sprockets, gears and wheels.

Bar Code Linkology for Print

Way back on the 12th of January 2021 Matt Webb over at Interconnected published a post about using printed QR codes for links in books. Give it a read—its a fantastically nerdy and good natured post, and The Gods know we are short on those online these days. It also links to some fantastic experiments in using QR codes in print for footnoted sources. When reading printed articles and essays it is often a good idea to glance at the source material, if only to make sure it is actually real ....

The Wave Rolls Back the Tide Breaks

Strap in folks, this is going to be a looongform post. It is highly recommended that you stock up on snacks and have a cup of $your_drink_of_choice close at hand. It will be a trek. People are slowly leaving the social media platforms, a feeling of the rebirth of the early net is in the air. Or at least we are slowly waking up to the possibility of some kind of alternative....
