Why we can’t have nice things

You may have noticed that since about a week or two/three ago the bots have stopped posting, well this wasn’t by choice. Twitter seems to have decided that I’m not suited for their platform and both of my accounts (@smugwave and @flashwave_) have been phone validation locked. It’s ridiculous that I even have to validate via phone number in the first place but I digress. Until now I decided to wait until my account would be restored, but today was the cherry on top of this delicious cake made entirely out of organic feces. Out of nowhere the second account I mentioned was also locked, I take this as a clear indication that Twitter’s thought policing algorithms have decided that I’m not welcome on their platform. Thus I’m discontinuing my support for their platform entirely, you used to be fun but it’s over. Thanks to everyone who supported development of Kotori by following the bots. If, and that’s a BIG if, I somehow regain access to my account I’ll likely pick up usage of it, but the bots will remain down as it’s a massive headache to manage them with Twitter’s retarded policies. Edit: Well that didn’t take very long! I’m back on Twitter, but the bots are dead.

“Personal” website

This is going to be a short post, but it’s better than nothing (oops).

Earlier this week I was thinking back on the earlier days of Flashii, back when that qualified as my personal site, and how I’d do something new with it at least every other week. This also made me realise that flash.moe has been stagnant for nearly almost over two years even though there’s a number of projects that I could be posting stuff about.

This is not intended as an announcement or anything, but I might bring out a redesign sometime soon. I don’t think I’ll open source it since I might work with basic PHP/HTML files and stuff since there really isn’t a need for informational personal websites to run on elaborate MVVM/MVC frameworks and designs. Especially if it means they barely get updated since updating the design accordingly is a pain.

If I do end up pushing this through I’ll make sure that old links will remain working.

And there we go again

And once again here we are, a clean slate. This time not really because I wanted a clean slate but because my phone died and Tumblr doesn’t really help you with resetting your 2fa code, you literally just get linked to a generic support page and told to fuck off when you send an e-mail.

Anyway welcome to flashwave’s blog episode 6 (at least I think this is episode 6), unlike the other installments I won’t let this one die within a week of creating it and I’ll try to post my thoughts on stuff more often, I already have a post about Electron and the general state of application development in mind so stay tuned for that!
