Showing off

Tonight I was met with a pleasant surprise: Chris Were published a video about Bibliogram, Invidious and Nitter! CloudTube / YouTube

As you might know, I'm the main developer of Bibliogram.

It's extremely frightening when someone with more of a following than you spreads the word about something that you've made, because what if they misrepresent your thing, or they explain it badly, or they present an outdated version, or their demo has unusual technical issues, or they pronounce the name of the thing incorrectly?

I was holding my breath as I watched the video, and I am incredibly happy to say that none of these things happened and that I am absolutely flattered that Chris took the time to make a video about Bibliogram. I think this is just incredibly cool.

There are a few things from the video that I'd like to discuss, and without a YouTube account, I can't show up in the comments to explain. Writing about it here seemed like a reasonable idea. If you're here from Chris's video, then hi!, thank you for spending the time to read this post, and thank you for appreciating Bibliogram. ❤️

There's a lot I could say about this, but it's already been said before. If you want to read the full history, you should check out these / three / posts.

The TLDR is that the pink line is the number of RSS/Atom feed requests.

If you'd like to discuss this more, please visit the Bibliogram room on Matrix. I'm, and I'd love to talk to you.

Remember that there are other instances, and that you can also run your own instance relatively easily.

This website

The "contact the developer" page hasn't been updated in quite a while. I'm a student and I'm paying for the servers with part of my student loans, which is not as bad as it sounds. You don't have to give me money, but I'll take it if you really want to. Also, it's $11/month because I have two servers now. I need to update that page.

There's a lot of things that I ought to do to this website but I've been putting them off in favour of more important things.

Things that worked out extremely well
