Decided to make a blogpost of just neat games, tech, websites, I've encountered recently. I love personal sites compared to platforms, but I think to make being off platforms more viable we need to proactively share things we like more. https://mosfetarium.com/blog/cool-stuff-1st-ed/

Yesterday I set up a gemini server you can play choice-driven text adventures over. I wrote a blogpost about it here: https://mosfetarium.com/blog/gemini-ink-server/ I've included the code in case anyone else wants to make their own gemini text adventures.
Also, yeah probably a blog post tomorrow sharing code etc.
Today I built a tiny NodeJS gemini server for playing choice-driven text adventures made with Ink (https://github.com/inkle/ink)! Was actually *very* easy to put together. I intend to have it up for other's to play around with soon!
