Updates: Site simplification and Gemini

Since 2021 is ending, I want to simplify this site.

What's changed

Not much perhaps. However, I removed Bootstrap for, well, styling and client-side Luxon for timezone-agnostic blog timestamp. Yes, please mercy me, at least I now get it that I don't need such features. Additionally, if you've been here for a while, you might notice that there's no more Illya on the home page. I removed her (so sad) to save bandwidth and to make the site loads faster.

Gemini

Recently, I heard about the Gemini protocol that's deemed to be an alternative to HTTP and Gopher. I decided to try it out and eventually made a capsule (community term for 'site') there. You can visit it at gemini://niko.lapetite.moe. My blog, and this site in general, won't be mirrored there because I think, at the end of the day, HTTP and Gemini are of different worlds. I still like HTTP because that's what everyone uses—no need to get a special browser, no weird proxy, etc. However, my Gemini capsule will still be there and I will put different """content""" from my main blog.
