I’m having a little play with hosting static sites for my bbs users, but using only gemini content, a site generator, and FTP. Not really sure how I’m going to do it, but I am.
I’ve also been playing with monitisation with Coil, if I can figure out how to hide my BBS’s web front end behind a Coil paywall I would consider opening it back up to the outside web. The amount of money raked in is still pretty small, but it would limit the server to genuine users if anything. Plus it helps a little towards the management of the web server, which is the most time intensive part of running a BBS
I totes need to work on my BBS having invested a lot of time with postfix getting email running
Redoin’ the BBS Login Screen - Awful ANSI screen ahoy
The File Area / FTP is b0rk3d - The joys of technology #bbs #bbsing #files
I’ve finally found out how to get mailcow to properly relay mail to bbs.ec without causing all kinds of havok. Next step is figure out how IP filtering works on Freebox and we’re there!
Moved the BBS website to gemini with some HTTP2Gemini voodoo, now mirroring the content over on the gopher server at gopher.is
The internet is quite intense in 2020 and I’ve got to do life things today. Already got the cat litter done, shopping next, laundry to come, and after I think working on the BBS
Oh lol the relay mx server hasn’t been responding for some time now. Good thing bbs.ec hasn’t sent an email out for a while 😅
Miss Kaja’s been chilling in the sun bbs.yt/album/cat…
Living vicariously though that time before the lockdown, I got around to uploading some of the pix from Oslo www.bbs.yt/album/osl…
Got bored, stayed up late, and redid bbs.ec
I think my #BBS is having some issues with file locks again, I just had to restart it. So BBS.ec will be down for a couple minutes…
I decided to start a phlog on gopher.is, I also upload the writings to the Web using Markdown. Not really sure if this’ll be a thing I do regularly, but I’ll try.
