With MyAnimeList down for days now, I’ve been seeing people turn to other alternatives such as Kitsu and Anilist a fair deal recently, and although I have long since done so, it is a new for at least three of my friends. But even with Kitsu being a libre alternative to MAL, I’ve been kind of disappointed with how centralized it is, and how if it falls down, it falls down, just like any centralised social network.
EDIT: the demo is no longer available. I spent a while today morning making a proof-of-concept-ish of soft HTTPS enforcement without JavaScript. You might look at it and think it’s completely idiotic and ask why would anybody want this, but I have a Nokia E51 and I constantly run into websites that force HTTPS on everything and my phone doesn’t understand either TLS or SNI (can’t remember) so the only thing that works for me is Google, not even Wikipedia.
I figured out it’s about time to give some of my projects a write up, and I’m pressed by time, so it seems like a perfect opportunity. A few months ago, as my dear friend and Crystal fanatic RX14 decided to shut down his file hosting of worldwide fame, aww.moe. Most precisely, it wasn’t shut down, it was changed to private-only, and while he did offer me an account, I didn’t feel like depending on somebody else to host my precious files.
