Thinking about posting some long-form thoughts on a bloggy thing. Do I use:
@tw Russia is not in my good graces this year.
@tw I have this server already, I'm gonna use it to self-host things.
Plus, I think of it like this. When I use someone else's platform, even someone nice like dreamwidth, I am improving their site in return for the convenience. The convenience is transitory but the improvement is permanent.
I could be making my own site nice instead.
@dl yeah but making your own site nice is like, work.
@dl also everyone knows the One True Use for any server is to host Factorio games.
