Lainchan webring


these sites have been checked recently and returned a statuscode of 2xx or 3xx

Dumpster dive:

these sites are either very based, completely retarded, offline, or all of those things at once

look for a webring thread in the Lainchan/Ω Catalog!

if you are curious about my webring setup, here's how i do it:

  1. download banners
  2. rename the file appropriately (filename equals the domain of the site) if the website is on a path, the slashes will be encoded as %2F (eg. =>
  3. run a shell script which takes a list of correctly named images and prints the corresponding links as <a><img/></a> tags. dependinge on whether the websites are online or not the links get printed to stdout or stderr, so you can save them into two seperate files.
  4. use sed to insert the image links into the webring template file, which contains comments that mark where to insert the links.

this may not be the perfect approach but it works well enough for now. if you have questions or suggestions, feel free to contact me
