Colophon

This site was created using Django. Its content has been migrated a zillion times through static HTML → hand-rolled PHP+MySQL → WordPress → Blogger → Tumblr → Drupal → (this). So there are bound to be some dead links and broken images. 🤷🏼‍♂️

It delivers boring HTML that renders in every browser ever, with or without stylesheets or JavaScript. There is a primitive styleguide. This was either built from, or is the foundation of, my usual website boilerplate.

The fonts are monospace and sans-serif, in typefaces determined by your device’s operating system. As a gestalt I intend to balance readability with anti-design, and minimalism with laziness. A decade ago I swore never to give a shit about fonts and this is the best I could do.

My sigil ✳︎ is an eight-spoked sprocket, U+2733. Depending on your device’s character encoding scheme and adherence to CSS, it may render as a greenish emoji ✳️ or as a plain text character ✳︎. I was inspired to adopt it as my personal sigil by Kurt Vonnegut’s illustration of an asshole and/or as a reference to the Noble Eightfold Path.

Axoplasm has been an active domain since 1999.
