Possible Discontinuation of Twitter Integration

If that title sounds vague to you, you'd be correct. The changes that Twitter's New Management have made so far have been pretty superficially annoying at worst and haven't really significantly affected anything, apart from dropkicking third party applications, but that didn't affect me personally. Well, earlier today the TwitterDev account dropped this gem (archived) announcing the discontinuation of free API usage and that's where we are now. In this post, I'll go over what I know and tell you where to find the RSS feeds.

Happy 10th Birthday, Flashii!

And so we enter the 10th year. A lot has happened in that time, both positive and negative, but all in all it makes me happy that this site continues to serve as a meeting place! I'm very grateful to everyone who has stuck around for all this time, but also to those who have joined recently. In this post I'll be reflecting a bit on the past year, as well as talk about my plans for the site this year. But first, the usual: Thank you for your continued use of Flashii!

Happy ⑨th Birthday, Flashii!

Thank you for your continued use of Flashii! The 9th anniversary of something always feels more like the beginning of anticipation for the 10th anniversary and right now for me that's definitely the way it is.

Server Migration

Last week I spent moving everything over from DigitalOcean to OVH. Aside from other issues I was having with DigitalOcean, one of which was very noticeable to anyone at around 0:00 UTC almost every day, OVH has much better pricing. Other than a current compatibility issue with chat, everything is running well again! This post contains some details about the migration.

Eight years ago I figured out how to get XAMPP running on a Dell Dimension 4550, it's been downhill since. Thank you for your continued use of the website!
