After studying the front pages of dozens of Web 1.0 websites that I like and noting what they did well, I decided to do another partial revamp of my own front page. Most importantly, I added a topbar with icons linking to the most popular and important sections of the website for the benefit of new visitors, along with a search bar to search the website via DuckDuckGo.

Has anyone else noticed a sharp increase in car crashes, along with cars abandoned by the side of the road in the past month or so?

Prior to this, like early on in the 'pandemic' I heard of people passing out at the wheel due to wearing a mask.

@bmh Thank you for your insight. I have been noticing a disturbing rise in car crashes and abandoned cars including ones that blatantly haphazardly drove right off the road, then I heard about the "Red Deer Prophecy" on 4chan that predicted this kind of thing back in June as a result of vaccine-related episodes and was shocked. Emergency rooms are apparently overflowing now too, and not with Covid cases...

Created a unique, surreal design for the Somnium (dream diary) that befits its content, added a new dream I had last night, and added three new Affiliates (Soukds, Antikrist, and Actually Autistic Blogs List).

Very sick of my feed being clogged by idiots following dozens of other people at once in an attempt to get more attention to their site.

Would be nice if Neocities at least included an option to filter out that nonsense.

i suppose all things nerdy and underground eventually become soiled by superficial attention seeking muggles at some point :( i just ended up unfollowing anyone that does that

Ha. I remember those days, wouldn’t be surprised if you could dig up a message of me asking for site building tips on your feed!

I'm pretty sure I did this when I was new here... but then I didn't have too many people following me in return to all get spammed with that nonsense :D

@fragmentandreflect, that's a very sad, universal truth. Normiefication is a social entropy that causes everything that is good to be decayed. It's for this reason that I will never stop defending the practice of gatekeeping. There are far too many NORPs/NPCs/muggles that have no real interests or passions and just want to superficially latch on to anything interesting and drink it dry like a leech.

For pretty much my entire life i've been mocked and ostrasized for clothes, music, ideas that the same people will a few years later be totally into because it's suddenly trendy. Maybe that's just the way it works when you're an individual. Maybe it's because we spend time tapping into the collective pool of human creativity and discover aspects of the collective unconscious before they become conscious idk??

ideally as humans evolve peopel will be more comfortable following there own inner guidance and moral compass, but we're evolving out of thousands or some might say millions of years of group dynamics that were necessary for survival in nature..

That's definitely happened with nerd culture! People used to be made fun of for being introverted too, and now obvious extroverts are claiming to be introverted. Even autism is now being appropriated by some people now that the stereotype is moving beyond "classical" autism. In my experience, most (not all) neurotypicals are just herd animals that just want to fit in and be accepted by the majority of other people,

and don't care how hypocritical or immoral they have to be in order to do so. Some of them are genuinely shocked when they encounter someone who doesn't care about fitting in. I honestly wonder if autism/non-conformity is an evolutionary mechanism designed to make sure that even if the entire rest of the herd collectively commits suicide due to stupidity, a few people will remain to rebuild afterward...

Sadly it often ends up being the sensitive weirdos taking their own lives and the tenacious dick weeds keep thriving. I'm hopeful of things shifting in the coming years and maybe I'll get to see Elon musk and others put on trial for crimes against humanity

I'm not down to see them executed, just forced to grow vegetables on a sinking island and learn how to be compassionate to themselves and others

The sad truth is that humans are, at their core, apes that can use tools. Our brains haven't had time to evolve since the days when rape and murder were considered socially acceptable. It's possible for us to overcome this, but far too few people care to make the effort to do so. Thus, sadly, sensitivity and empathy are generally not traits that help a person pass on their genes.

Happy Halloween! After days of hard work, I have put together the most interactive DOS game fan-shrine yet, for the classic computer game Monster Bash! Lamentably, it does not seem to work in IE due to lack of proper CSS animation support. Please make sure JavaScript is enabled as well! I also fixed 2 broken creepypasta links at the Haunted House (Infected Town and Patient Who Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine.) Enjoy!

This is very impressive, and I commend you for at least caring about compatibility with Internet Explorer, rather than merely disregarding the browser entirely, as too many others nowadays are apt to do.

@Holeinmyheart, Yeah I kind of wonder if Frank Maddin simply ran out of time to develop a proper final boss. It's utterly bizarre how Count Chuck shows up to belittle you over and over throughout the game, and is then blissfully asleep when you finally show up to fight him...

Thank you very much, @lolwut! I tried tweaking some things to make it work in Internet Explorer but those doggone animations just would not show up. I will always at least make an effort to ensure compatibility with Internet Explorer, if for no reason other than because you will always use it.

Thank you so much, @fragmentandreflect!!

I know I've been bad at responding to people in a timely manner. Been working all day on Haunted Manor, the goofy "Monster Bash" fan-shrine that will be tomorrow's Halloween update. Not that it'll be unusually long, it's just that these DOS game shrines really do take ages to put together. There'll be some fun concepts however...

In other, more relevant, Halloween news, my friend @HoleinMyHeart has put up the first part of a promising new creepypasta story, and I HIGHLY recommend reading it. He's a very talented writer, and does not get nearly enough appreciation. https://holeinmyheart.neocities.org/blog/mathman/mathman_intro.html

In COMPLETELY unrelated news because I'm drunk ranting, I decided to buy two pairs of noise-cancelling headphones (one active and one passive) as an early Christmas gift for myself, both for personal use and so that I could be more informed on them. I'll update the Helpful Accommodations for Autistic People page on this eventually, but suffice to say, both are true boons in their own ways and I am jubilated with them
