Another website article down, this time one about IRC and NaNoWriMo that turned out to be... well, I was gonna say 'inexplicably long', but it's very explicable: it involves signing up and logging in on the online chats, setting up the IceChat standalone IRC client (I have screenies for several others but... honestly how the fuck did I set up KVirc in the first place? I'll be damned if I can do it now.) Also links to other ones that aren't IceChat, some of which I did set up correctly but didn't want the post spiralling out of control, and common IRC commands and...
yeah. Turns out it's like 1,400 words and lots of images.
Think I managed to catch all the notes I none-too-politely told myself when to waffle on.
So all I've gotta do now are screenshots for the Pomodoro thing (which needed the IRC article posting first 'cause Timmy) and then I can work on the tips-and-tricks things for Camp NaNo and NaNo. Which are just sorta clickbait bullshit I guess, but who knows, maybe someone'll find them helpful.
See, this is why I didn't want to be the one writing content. Because I'm boring as fuck and I don't know what I'm doing. But it's not like anyone else is exactly falling over themselves, is it?
Doesn't help 000webhost has been down on and off all day which is a major pain in the arse. I need better Wordpress hosting that isn't Wordpress.com. Seriously, $10 a year just for the privilege of using a URL already paid for elsewhere? Go fuck yourselves — no, wait, seriously, it's now $7/month? What the actual fuck. And that's before you get into plugins, i.e. the thing you use with Wordpress.org installations to actually make Wordpress fucking work which, if you want to use them on Wordpress.com cost you $20/month.
Yeah. Not an option.
I don't mind paying for sensible hosting for this non-profit regional website of a non-profit organisation. SENSIBLE.
Excuse me while I expire on this table a bit.
Why do I even do this?
Because you're a fucking masochist, why else?
But hey. One article down. That's... progress. I guess.
