I was going to ask you a few questions about JAUP, then I realized, I've been meaning to interview people on Neocities via email, this might be a good time to start. Are you up for it?

Is it a clone of the original JAUP, or you ran the original and revived it now?

It's a clone. For a brief 3 year or so period of time from 1996 until around 1998 Randy Larkin was the webmaster of the original JAUP. It was a very fun period of time. GeoCities and other free host sites were in thier heyday. You could get your site listed on a couple of search engines, sites like this and other award sites just by asking and soon you would get thousands of hits!

I never knew Randy personally, but my original site was listed in JAUP back in the day. I found it on the Internet Archive back when I was making my NeoCities site and I decided to revive it and try to recreate the fun of the early days of the World Wide Web.

Regarding the "Hugo and Neocities" post, recursive upload is possible with the neocities CLI tool, no custom script needed. I just do "neocities push build/". It's pure Ruby AFAIR so should be easy to install via gem on any OS.

I had issues with the ruby gem the last few times I tried to install it (SSL certificate issue, I think?). Whatever it was, I did cursory research, realized it would take some time to sort out, and just went back to my MacGuyver setup.
