I migrated kotori.me from MPServ to OVH yesterday, so some services are broken while I set up the new VPS. Hopefully everything will get back up and running over the course of this weekend.



New services:

  • Xonotic game server - The old MPServ VPS is now running a Xonotic server at xonotic.kotori.me:26000. There's a page with basic info at http://xonotic.kotori.me. Email me if you'd like to play a few rounds or are interested in other gamemodes. (currently deathmatch only)

  • compouters - A beautiful (subjective) website showcasing computer-related information, made by RoosterElf.


You can subscribe to the Updates mailing list at http://lists.kotori.me for email updates whenever new services are added, modified significantly, or removed. Except you can't, because I haven't installed mailman yet.

If you have an interesting and useless website you'd like me to host on kotori.me, send me an email with a description and an archive containing the files. Please don't send me any nonfree JavaScript.

If you'd like to suggest a service for me to host on kotori.me, send me an email. Please ensure that all the server-side and all essential client-side software is free (as in freedom). If you have time to document the free JavaScript, please do so using http://kotori.me/javascript.html as a guide and send it to me as well. Note that kotori.me has limited storage space, so something that uses a lot of it like ownCloud or GNU MediaGoblin are not well suited for kotori.me as public services. If you'd like to donate some Bitcoin to 1K7fsK9Q26Z15K1c8fNoJba6g77pP5D7W9, maybe that will change. ;)



Works:

  • xonotic server

  • message board

  • document collaboration - this isn't entirely set up so don't rely on it for anything important yet, will fix soon

  • spreadsheet collaboration - same as above

  • paul-o-meter - I'll be adding actual (relative) usefulness to this eventually, stay tuned.

  • gentoo

  • compouters


Broken:

  • url shortener

  • cards against humanity - this has never worked and may not for some time

  • updates mailing list

  • owncloud - this isn't public, but if you've received a broken kotori.me/owncloud link this is why it's broken

3 Name: kotori : 2014-09-27 12:46 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

Fixed some stuff, broke some stuff. Everything but cards against humanity should work by sometime tomorrow.



Works:

  • message board - spam probably blocked now, will add captcha if that doesn't work

  • url shortener - spam blocking plugin now works with OVH, though it doesn't do a very good job

  • xonotic server

  • paul-o-meter - moved to useless websites section until decent functionality is added

  • gentoo

  • compouters

  • owncloud



Broken:

  • document collaboration

  • spreadsheet collaboration

  • cards against humanity

  • updates mailing list - moved from lists.kotori.me/mailman to kotori.me/cgi-bin/mailman, not completely set up yet

4 Name: kotori : 2014-09-27 20:03 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

Works:

  • message board

  • document collaboration - now set up properly and supports importing/exporting more formats

  • url shortener

  • xonotic server

  • paul-o-meter

  • gentoo

  • compouters

  • updates mailing list - I can't send updates yet, but you can subscribe and whatnot fine (oh, and the root was moved to kotori.me so you can just go to kotori.me/listinfo rather than kotori.me/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo)

  • owncloud



Broken:

  • spreadsheet collaboration - will fix tomorrow

  • cards against humanity



In other news, kotori.me is the first three hits for "kotori.me" on Google. The two services listed are the only two to be targeted by spambots so far, so I guess I can thank them for the free SEO.

5 Name: kotori : 2014-09-28 12:19 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

Works:

  • everything!!!1!11!!ONE! (almost)



Broken:

  • cards against humanity



As well, you can now view some of the files served at kotori.me through ownCloud by clicking "files" on the homepage. This includes the HTML and images and stuff for the homepage itself, as well as everything related to the useless websites. As for services, you can click the license names next to their links on the homepage and find their source somewhere there.

The Xonotic server is now properly daemonized so it should actually work all the time now, email me if it ever doesn't.

In the process of adding a pastebin, wip at http://kotori.me/stikked
You can't create pastes yet; I'll post another update once it's fully working.

7 Name: kotori : 2014-10-15 18:34 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

New services:

  • web irc - JS IRC client. There is no kotori.me server or channel, but you can connect to any others from your web browser.

8 Name: kotori : 2014-10-19 16:59 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

The primary kotori.me VPS was upgraded yesterday (1 -> 2 cores, 1G -> 2G RAM, 10G -> 25G storage) so there's more room for new services and things should be faster in general now. Bitcoin is a great way to help me upgrade the server so it can suck less; any donations to 1K7fsK9Q26Z15K1c8fNoJba6g77pP5D7W9 would be greatly appreciated as usual.

New services:

  • OpenSimulator game server - There is now an OpenSim grid at kotori.me:8002. You can register for free at http://kotori.me:8002/wifi and connect with most SecondLife/OpenSimulator viewers. (instructions at http://opensimulator.org/wiki/OSHT#Part_6:_Connecting_with_Viewers) There's not much here yet, but expect stuff Soon(tm). Send me an email if you'd like an estate or region, free of charge until the server explodes.



I haven't entirely forgotten about the pastebin, but I'm very lazy so don't get your hopes up.

The OpenSim server will be offline tonight and tomorrow, until 15:00 EST probably.

11 Name: kotori : 2014-10-23 05:52 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

The OpenSim server is now back up, miraculously ahead of schedule.

12 Name: kotori : 2014-10-23 21:16 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

kotori.me is now properly configured with a TLSv1/SSLv3 certificate, signed by CAcert.org. You can encrypt your connection to kotori.me by visiting https://kotori.me. Assuming your browser uses TLS, your connection is safe from the SSLv3 "Poodle" bug. Not all of the services at kotori.me are configured for SSL/TLS yet, but the whole site will be ready ASAP.

SSL/TLS-compatible

  • homepage

  • xonotic page

  • message board

  • url shortener

  • paul-o-meter

  • gentoo

  • compouters



Not yet compatible

  • document collaboration

  • spreadsheet collaboration

  • web irc

  • opensim wifi pages

  • cards against humanity

  • owncloud

  • updates mailing list pages



As well, all the public services that were previously available only on non-80 ports (eg. document collaboration on port 9001) are now also accessible on port 80. The new addresses are as follows:

  • document collaboration: kotori.me:9001 - docs.kotori.me

  • spreadsheet collaboration: kotori.me:8000 - sheets.kotori.me

  • web irc: kotori.me:7778 - irc.kotori.me

  • opensim: kotori.me:8002/wifi - opensim.kotori.me/wifi

  • cards against humanity: kotori.me:8080/cah - tomcat.kotori.me/cah


The information page on the Xonotic server was also moved from xonotic.kotori.me to kotori.me/xonotic. The links on the homepage have of course been updated to reflect the new locations.

Finally, the document collaboration service now has more features like fonts, tables, and alignment.

New services:

  • interjection - an interjection

14 Name: Anonymous : 2015-02-08 15:48 ID:TcQDaMzJ [Del]

MySQL Interjection

15 Name: kotori : 2015-02-12 22:16 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

New services:

  • idk - a webpage of some sort by anonymous



I'm working on redesigning the home page to be clearer, more descriptive, friendly, and attractive (greetz to peek.usertesting.com for feedback). Any suggestions are greatly appreciated; please post them here or email them to me. You can preview a horribly broken testbed at kotori.me/broken.

Look forward to a couple new services and updates following the redesign: a werc wiki, custom countdowns for the paul-o-meter, the eternally procrastinated cards against humanity and pastebin, and a somewhat streamlined process for submitting webpages to be hosted and advertised here for free (the useless websites section).

New services:

  • file hosting - free lifetime (not guaranteed and subject to change :)) <=2G file hosting



Not dead yet! kotori.me hasn't seen much change recently as I've focused on werchan and other projects but the server and all/most of the current services should stay alive for the foreseeable future.

I have a (slow) server with a 2T drive now so Mediagoblin is a possibility. The new services mentioned in >>15 probably won't happen as the fast-ish server running most of kotori.me has taken on more jobs and now idles around 100% load. Bitcoin donations are still accepted at 1K7fsK9Q26Z15K1c8fNoJba6g77pP5D7W9 and would facilitate a server upgrade to run those services.

I will probably replace the certs and get SSL/TLS working on all the services once Let's Encrypt is ready.

New services:

  • file storage - free public "cloud" storage thing like owncloud



Powered by Seafile, which seems to be a lot better than ownCloud.

This service enforces SSL/TLS and is pretty secure. The cert is self-signed for now but will be replaced once Let's Encrypt is available.

You can use it for private file storage, collaboration, or public file sharing with the shared kotori.me public library. There is 2T available right now (shared with the direct file hosting service). No limits for now. Donate (1K7fsK9Q26Z15K1c8fNoJba6g77pP5D7W9) to fund more storage.

If you prefer to donate to via Paypal, you can do that now at http://kfarwell.org/donate.

19 Name: kotori : 2015-10-09 00:15 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

Direct file hosting and file storage temporarily offline, should be back in the morning.

20 Name: kotori : 2015-10-09 10:39 ID:zf5w5aEl [Del]

>>19
And we're back.

Intermittent downtime from a DoS bug. Will fix asap.

21 Name: kotori : 2015-11-26 17:23 ID:AVnYMca5 [Del]

New services:

  • slideshow viewer - upload sent slides and present using a web browser without installing sent



Check out my new site Tokumei, anonymous Twitter-style microblogging.

22 Name: kotori : 2015-12-10 22:09 ID:ufCPjlR1 [Del]

New services:

  • replicant sdk docs - www mirror of the replicant sdk 4.2.2 documentation

nice

24 Name: kotori : 2016-01-03 13:26 ID:ASFSqqdf [Del]

New services:

  • media sharing - mediagoblin instance



You need an account for now but registration is open and you're welcome to create as many throwaway accounts as you'd like. You can create e-mail addresses for registration without non-free JavaScript using Guerilla Mail.

25 Name: kotori : 2016-01-05 15:38 ID:ASFSqqdf [Del]

>>24
You can now use the MediaGoblin instance with the user 'guest' and password 'password'.

Temporarily down due to spam hogging the server.
