Back in October, 2014 Paul Ford did something amazing and wrote about it: I had a couple drinks and woke up with 1,000 nerds
It was the story of tilde.club.
I love the idea of tilde.club-type sites everywhere. I even ran one for a spell. Mr. Ford was kind enough to provide me with an account on the original server. You can find it at tilde.club/~jbaty. I still update it occasionally. It's comforting having a statically-served1 “~” account on someone else's server.
I even pop into the local-only IRC channel. There are a few folks still around, but they're pretty quiet. Still, it's nice to know they're there.
