Allow me to geek-out, if you will. I expect that this sort of thing will happen a lot more often now. As I had previously mentioned, I am intending these little tidbits I discover to become Googlebait.

I recently came across an issue when trying to test out a local web page. Now, I run my own Apache server for testing most web functionality, but I wanted to deploy an embedded target that would not be running a server of any kind. The idea was for it to display HTML5 pages, so anything server-side was unnecessary. Thus, I wanted to use the file:/// schema to show local files as pages (That is, file:///absolute/path/to/file.html) instead of pointing to http://localhost and running an httpd.

Start of a RE-volution

Ah, now, back to business.

It has almost been a year since I posted an update on this site regularly. Sure, I meant to post this particular update at exactly one year (thus this being late and last week being filler and also late), but not being bound to an arbitrary and largely symbolic schedule is one of the reasons I gave up following an arbitrary and symbolic schedule. Or, y'know, all the reason.

But like I said in last week's update, I have been working on the site. What you are looking at right now in the fruit of that work. It might not look like much, but updated updates (with comments!) mean that there can be a lot more communication around here, and that is what has been sorely missing in recent years.

See, I have always held the stance of anti-blogging. I disliked social media before it even was labeled such. I just hate people who try to talk about themselves all the time. This site is supposed to be about what new fun distractions are being offered up to you -- not the weird, scary dude who coded them.

But now, I gots some talking I gotsta do.

No, you are not reading things wrong. It has almost been a whole year since I last posted an update, but if you have been paying attention to the last update I made, you would notice that I never stopped working on the site.

Recently, I have been working on a rather sweeping change to the site's infrastructure. Most noticeably, all comment pages have a much more approachable interface and human-readable URLs instead of mangled query garbage. (Less noticeable, hopefully, is anything I probably broke.) Link cleanliness is something I have really been pushing for, but I guess I'll have more on that for you soon in the coming days. For realsies.
