Infrastructure updates and web revival, or: "why the internet fucking sucks and will possibly forever"

today i migrated this domain from render.com to google cloud run. render.com does like my 2 least favourite things, charges for usage hours which is stupid because they don't reset monthly, and have an insanely slow cold start. i think it rebuilds ALL of my npm packages on each cold start.
for those of you who dont know what on earth npm is, it basically is a big bloated mess that is in love with getting rid of all of your computer storage and taking years upon years to install.
Webrevival is fucking cool and i'd like u guys to give it a go. go on neocities and just make shit, join a webring and support other peoples shit.
ive personally found a bunch of cool stuff just looking around the internet. postbox.garden is an imageboard that you can only post to by actually mailing a postcard to their garden in boston.
rgbteahouse is one of the first sites i ever visited while looking through webrings and neocities. The owner is very friendly and they are very talented at art.
low tech magazine run a website powered entirely on solar panels. They have a lot of really cool sustainability related content and i always love reading it.
i hope you consider making your own content on the internet because every day it is becoming more corporatized and used as a marketing tool. thanks for reading <3
