What do you guys think of my site?

I decided to dip my toes into Geminispace using the built-in site feature of the Midnight Pub. I'm enjoying it so far. Visit and tell me what you think! I promise there's more interesting stuff to come.

It’s fabulous. Love your poetry, especially.

Given your musings on consciousness, let me recommend “I am a Strange Loop”. It’s a sort of cognitive science memoir, and I found it meaningful enough that had an excerpt read at our wedding. You might also enjoy Daniel Dennett’s approach to compatibilism (reconciling “free will” with materialism).

I've been meaning to read "I am a Strange Loop" for years now but never got around to it..

Really enjoying reading your capsule! I also found that you wrote AWAKE in basic, and I really want to learn this language. I've downloaded it and am currently exploring the Forrest of Awakening!

I've always loved BASIC, though I wish I were more of a "real" programmer and could do more with it than little text adventure games :) Let me know if you have any issues with Awake!

Also if you move home.gmi to index.gmi that might be awesome♥

Oh, good idea! I don't know why I was bewildered by something so basic, haha!

I love that Midnight Pub has this feature

tskaalgard

Me too! It's a good way to dip one's toes into Gemini without investing the time in setting up a dedicated server.

Love it!

Grant it, I had to build and install "gmni" (https://git.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/gmni) in the Linux on my Chromebook, which of course went anything but smoothly - system seemingly couldn't/wouldn't install a version of openssl containing a few function dependencies, leading to adding source code I could find until "make" finally finished without error.

But, hey, now I've got me a fun little line mode Gemini browser (gmnlm) still smoldering in the wake of its virginal voyage to gemini://tskaalgard.midnight.pub/home.gmi ... :-)

Sorry to hear it didn't work well :/ That's one of the reasons I included an HTTP link :p

There was no way I was going to settle for a mere HTTP link when a Gemini link was winkin' all - at the risk going back too far in TV comedy time - Ginger Grant at me! :-)

Speaking of which, oh wow, from the:

Tiny Louise

Wikipedia entry:

"Upon the death of Dawn Wells on December 30, 2020, Louise became the last surviving original cast member of the Gilligan's Island TV series."
