    I love what you wrote, and the way you've put it. I was still young at the time of geocities and the early web, but I still remember my ICQ friends and the thrill of finding a new, hidden homepage and trying to connect with the author to be part of their webring. The web wasn't commercial, it was a place to connect. That's what I miss these days. Everything's done with a hidden agenda to capture users, generate revenue, and so on. Everything except smaller webs like Gemini!

    Haha happy to answer actually! It's all done with NextJS. The data is stored with Fauna DB and Algolia (for the search part). It's a rather small code-base actually.

    I worked on a webring for midnight pub after being inspired by what I found here. I'm getting more and more interested by the web of the 90s and how people used to design and access content. It's a fun, nostalgic trip!

    I got curious about webrings, and built one for Midnight Pub. It's called the Midnight Webring and it's there to connect the homepage of the patrons.

    Congratulations! It looks really well implemented. I'm looking to create a webring as well for the users of midnight.pub, to circle through personal websites. I haven't given too much thoughts yet, but I like the simple pop-up with the next, prev and random link. Aren't you afraid it could be blocked by pop-up blockers though?

    I read that you got the x240! It looks really good. The main issue of the p53 that I have is that it's very heavy. I'm also learning emacs and it's twisting my brain in a good way! As for Midnight, it's my way of spending all my creative energy into building something. Feel free to hop on from time to time to exchange a virtual beer :)

    I configured my newly bought thinkpad p53. I actually moved away from macos. I installed fedora, webstorm, and was able to get going building https://midnight.pub. I'm getting more and more inspired by MUDs, and added the notion of place / people being able to be in a place.

    I have been playing Hypnospace: Outlaw since last week and I'm absolutely loving it. It's a way to get back the internet of old, the geocities and the like. You get to explore (and monitor) a web of homepages. Great music, graphics. Would definitely recommend. It inspires me a lot for https://midnight.pub

    Power-ups sounds a lot like a fremium model. I'm not against this particular addition, but against the philosophy in general. Adding micro-transactions to unlock features has been done in lots of places already, especially video-games. It creates inequality amongst users in the long run, and frustration. Reddit already has ads.

    I understand that monetisation is an issue. I would gladly pay a small subscription each month to access reddit without ads or other AMP if I was offered the possibility.

    I'm still spending all my free time on https://midnight.pub - a virtual pub, tiny social network/writing platform that allows me to think about something else than work. Last week i decided to move to emacs and I'm currently struggling to relearn most of the things. I had been using intellij for a while, I like it (a lot), but want to give a go to emacs for at least a few weeks before deciding what's best for me.
