The last couple weeks have been insane, they really have. My personal life has been all over the place, and even though Thanksgiving is over, I still find myself grateful that my femur is not actually dislocated after all. With so much going on in real life, and my slow surrender to increasing exhaustion, I’ve more-or-less neglected the social aspects of my online life. My participation in multiple communities has grown weeds.

On the other hand, a lot of the time I’d normally spend chatting online, I’ve been pouring into my online freedom-related projects. Python-libdeje got a lot of love recently, though it still has a ways to go before I start really advertising that. More importantly, I finally straightened out the tangled mess of nginx + uwsgi for roaming-initiative-http, which allowed me to make great strides in the rest of the site. I was able to bang out the entire set of sidebar pages yesterday afternoon!

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. Every link in the sidebar works, and has content. So while the site is not finished, it is sufficiently complete that it felt ready to post on /r/darknetplan. No comments on it as of this writing, but then, maybe I just did a really good job explaining things in the site itself, so who knows?

With the main site holding its own for now, I’d like to spend more time on python-libdeje, this blog, roaming-initiative-cvi-gateway, and eventually djdns (when the DEJE library and protocol are up to it). I’d also like to get more involved with the Hawkthorne community again - maybe not as much as I used to, not sure I’ll be able to keep up the old pace, but it’s a fun project by good people, and it’s nice to have something that I work on that isn’t too esoteric to show off to my relatives.

Oh, and I want to make a blog post or site page or something soon to show off some of the cool explanatory diagrams I made this week. Roaming Initiative - explained in visual form! The diagrams are already done - they were trivial to make in Google Drive, all I have to do is export as svg - but I still have to decide how to encapsulate them with words. So stay tuned for that.

EDIT: After posting this, I finally fixed the stupid issues with the blog title and author in the RSS and Atom feeds. If you’re already subscrived via some sort of RSS reader, you might need to fiddle with it a little to fix the title. If not, you’d never have known that once upon a time, every blog entry was credited to Lakshmi Vyasarajan, and the blog title was “BASIC Blog Excerpts.”
