A growing array of reasons, none of which are particularly worth delving into, have spurred me to migrate Koshka's Kingdom away from Neocities and onto its own hosting. There is nothing to fear, as the Kingdom will continue to be accessible via the https://koshka.love URL which it has been living at since May of last year. A great many thank yous to my friends jvlfools and ShadowM00n for their invaluable assistance with this endeavour, which involved a great amount of uncharted territory for me.

Although you will be unable view the up-to-date version of the RSS feed if your feed comes from the https://koshka.neocities.org/koshka.rss URL instead of the https://koshka.love/koshka.rss one. If your feed lists the most recent update as being the "The Kingdom Has Migrated (PLEASE SWITCH OVER TO THE UPDATED RSS FEED)" one from 04 March, it is out of date. Since a number of friends use the Neocities feed to keep up with websites they follow, including mine, I will also continue updating the Scratching Post page on Neocities when I update the website, to make it more convenient for everyone to keep up.

The majority of my reasons for the move stem from wanting more control over my website, as well as to have full control over the "koshka.love" domain name for whatever endeavours I may desire to use it for (such as my hostname on IRC servers). Neocities has certainly done a marvelous job at recreating the Web of old on its servers, and I have had the grand pleasure of meeting a number of very intelligent and creative friends and acquaintances through it. It is a terrific stepping stone for would-be webmasters/webmistresses, but I am now ready to brave some wilder jungles.

In unrelated yet exciting news, I have added another Affiliate website by a friend of mine - the budding yet already delightfully cute Prints's Pink Palace - to the Portal and the Dock. Check it out!

One of those "yard sale" updates. I created a brand new header for the UFO section due to my growing dissatisfaction with the original one due to the infinity symbol not looking like a real rainbow (which I felt did not look good on the design). The new header is in my opinion far prettier and more stylish.

Additionally, I added to new dreams to the Somnium (a new one and a childhood one), and added one new Neocities Affiliate, Metaparadox, to the Portal and the Dock. That is all.

I am interrupting this prolonged silence by putting up a prolonged shameless infodump on the Halloween horror movie series. Everything you've ever wanted to know, didn't want to know, and didn't know that you wanted to know about Michael Myers. This will live on the Haunted House section, which I have decided to branch out into being a "general horror fiction" section instead of limited to just creepypastas.

I added the follow-up article to the first Life Advice to Younger Autistics article to the UFO, offering up some additional important advice, including some more personal things. Many apologies for the delay, as I had previously mentioned this would be up LAST weekend, but completely lost track of time.

I added yet another new article to the UFO - Life Advice to Younger Autistics, Part 1, the first in a two part series of things that I wish someone had told me at a younger age. The second part will be done hopefully by the end of this weekend. I also added a new category in the Autism section as I have tentative plans to make more autism-related advice articles directed at various situations and groups in the future.

The upcoming article that I was working on was getting a tad too long even by my standards, and I was worried about people avoiding it like the Personality Disorders due to the sheer length. As such, I wound up cutting out the part about autistic inertia, and turning that into its own article, which is now up on the Autism section. I also added a new Affiliate, Agora Road's Macintosh Cafe, to the Portal/Dock. Enjoy!

Did a minor update to the "Odd" Autistic Behaviours and Why We Do Them article, explaining why autistic people tend to inexplicably change the subject to ourselves during conversations so often. I am working on a major autism-related article that I hope to be done with in the coming days, and it occurred to me that with all of the personal anecdotes littering it, I should make a note clarifying this tendency beforehand.

With Russian Christmas and New Year's having come and gone, I suppose I have lost my final excuse for keeping the Christmas theme on the front page up. Oh well. I do still prefer the regular pink theme in spite of how much time I put into getting the Christmas theme "just right", but I worry a tad about how many pink-phobic visitors I am scaring off with it.

In other news, I have added a number of new links (and descriptions) to the Dock - Cidoku.net to the Affiliates category, DOOM Honorific Titles and Compet-N to the Doom category, Lori Central, OpenJazz, and Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Warehouse to the brand new Jazz Jackrabbit category and The Devil's Dictionary to the Miscellaneous category. I also fixed a few broken links that had developed on various pages on the UFO due to my recent re-organisation of it. That is all, for now...

I wrote a follow-up article to my original Intense World article, explaining how the theory's postulations explain the phenomenon of dyspraxia, and proposing a new model for the autism acceptance based on the theory. I had much of this in my head for months now but only just now was able to beat back the writer's block to actually put it to HTML. A sign of things to come, hopefully. I also decided to keep the Christmas theme (and Holiday Macula) up until after Russian New Year's (14th January), because I like them.

In the interest of organising the website as it grows increasingly larger, and of making the website easier to crawl for search engines, I decided to move the entire autism section (UFO) into its own sub-directory and change the filenames of some of the pages to make them more intuitive. The old links should still work for quite a while; but they will simply redirect you to the updated link if you try to visit them. The new main page of the section can be found at https://koshka.love/autism/. Truly, a day well spent.

I will probably eventually do the same to every section that has more than 1-3 pages (notably the Library of Babel, an arduous task that I am already dreading doing because I only know how to do these things manually), so be on the lookout for that, I suppose. That is all.

Merry Christmas (again) and happy New Years! The Jazz Jackrabbit Christmas Episodes fan-shrine, Burrowsville, is finally up and running over at the Mystery Mansion! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas! After a month of constant work, my Christmassy psychedelic ZZT game, Santa's Advocate, is finally available for download from the Town of ZZT. HIGHLY recommended if you have any interest in DOS games, psychedelic humour, or just comical Christmas fun in general. Many thanks to Jvlfools, lolwut, and Surlent for beta testing the game and providing invaluable feedback towards improving it!

In decidedly less Christmassy news, I also added a nightmare I had last night to the Somnium.

Happy Winter!! (: I fixed the broken link to my ZZT game Santa's Lil' Helper on the Town of ZZT after lolwut helpfully pointed out that it wasn't working, and added a new dream to the Somnium.

Santa's Advocate is now set to be released one day late, on Christmas Day, 25 December. I'll probably get it done today, but I don't want to rush the people who volunteered to beta-test it, especially considering how hectic many people's schedules are around this time of year. That and, as always, I would rather finish my work late than finish it on time and have it not be as good as it could've been.

At the risk of being the bearer of bad news: I just wanted to say that I am not dead yet! I have two important announcements to make regarding upcoming projects that some people may have some interest in.

Firstly, my promised forthcoming Christmas ZZT game, Santa's Advocate (detailed description available in the linked page), has turned into something far more ambitious than I had planned it on being when I first started working on it. I still have faith in my ability to release it on Christmas Eve (24 December), but it has utterly monopolised my free time and prevented me from getting any work done on any other creative project, hence the complete lack of updates. This will likely be my final ZZT game, and the gem of my (admittedly mostly mediocre) 18 year ZZT "career", and I would like to humbly request a few people to beta-test it before release.

The plan is currently to put together a beta version by the end of the day on 22 December, leaving a day both for anyone interested to beta-test and for me to make some rounds through the game and make last minute changes. All you need to play this is the freeware game ZZT and a DOS emulator such as DOSBox or DOS-compatible operating system such as Windows 98, in order to run ZZT. If you have any interest in DOS games, and/or psychedelic comedy, this may just be your cup of peyote tea. Please contact me if you are interested! Here is a screenshot of the title screen, and here is a screenshot of a random board.

The second announcement is in regard to the upcoming Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Fan-Shrine: Burrowsville. Unfortunately, due to how much of my time the aforementioned ZZT game is taking up, and due to the fact that I still have little ideas for this project and have only created a simple basis for it so far, I will most likely be forced to push this back to either New Years, or as far back as Old (Russian) Christmas, on 7th January. I apologise to anyone who was looking forward to that. I'll see if I can get it done on time after Santa's Advocate is wrapped up, but I have little faith in my ability to do that.

Regarding my other previously promised projects such as Macula's Maze, the autism articles, the Dragon Ball Super fanfictions, the Quarry, and so forth, most of them are in progress in some forth or another, and I am still hopeful to get those out eventually. Koshka's Kingdom has not been abandoned, just plunged into a period of stasis due to my current priorities.

I haven't been updating much lately, but I wanted to announce another forthcoming project of mine that perhaps a few people may have some interest in. I have revived my ZZT "career" to release one final ZZT game: a Viovisian psychedelic adventure where you aid Santa Claus in his (exceedingly nonsensical) battle against the Krampus, who is attempting to usurp him. If you're a fan of DOS games, and/or psychedelic/trippy humour, this should be your cup of peyote. Here's a screenshot of one of the boards that I've finished up so far.

The current plan is for this (still unnamed) ZZT game to come out on Christmas Eve (USA time) and for the Jazz Jackrabbit 2: Christmas Chronicles fan-shrine (Burrowsville) to come out on Christmas Day.

In celebration of the Christmas holiday season, I have unveiled a completely new, festive design for the front page, including a number of graphics that I created just for the occasion. Most importantly, at the suggestion of my ever-brilliant friend ShadowM00n, Macula (seen on the bottom of the page) now has a holiday monocle and top hat! The finished product is a bit lacking because I am too drunk and tired to wrestle with .GIF colour limitations any longer, but the concept is undeniably brilliant.

After a fun weekend of Web 1.0 Archaeology, I added 29 excellent new links to the Dock, which now sports a whopping 233 total links! I also added two new categories - Comedy & Oddities, and Web Forums, to organise things a bit better. The new links added are as follows:

Internet Pioneers and Computer Hope in the Other Computer Resources category, MadTom's Pick in the ZZT category, Doom WAD station and Classic DOOM in the Doom category, Phil's Wacky Wheels Site, S&F Prod, and the Apogee FAQ in the General Retro Games category, The Shadowlands and Everything You Need to Know About Vampires in the Mysticism and Supernatural category, Boards.ie and B3TA in the Web Forums category, Neil's Pennsylvania Home Page and Horace 'Kicker' Vallas in the Comedy & Oddities category, Kat's Corner, Erowid, Totse, Dissolved Girl (rest in peace), Contemplations From the Marianas Trench, Send Coffee, Obsolete Computer Museum, Encyclopaedia Metallum, The Meditative Cat, The Cephalopod Page, RussianSpaceWeb, Moose Creek Nike Site, and Almighty Guru in the Miscellaneous category, and LittleSis in the Politics category.

Descriptions are included with the links, as always. Happy exploring!! (:

I updated the Helpful Accommodations for Autistic People page with some additional thoughts on noise-cancelling headphones, after having purchased two separate pairs of them and used them extensively, along with a few other assorted updates and corrections.

After spending some time replaying some of my favourite ZZT games, I became inspired and decided to create a new sub-section for the Town of ZZT, dedicated to reviewing ZZT games and preserving the rich gaming history found in them. The new ZZT Game Reviews currently hosts reviews and screenshots of two classic releases from the year 1999 - Edible Vomit and PPDV - and I will be adding more as time goes on!

14 November 2021
After studying the front pages of dozens of Web 1.0 websites that I like and noting what they did well, I decided to do another partial revamp of my own front page. Most importantly, I added a topbar with icons linking to the most popular and important sections of the website for the benefit of new visitors, along with a search bar to search the website via DuckDuckGo. I also condensed and updated the opening text, brought the Wildcat Den mailbox over to advertise the guestbook. The topbar is an experiment that I may wind up adding to every page of the Kingdom, or get rid of altogether.

I was also informed that apparently there are issues with lag when scrolling on the scrollable elements on Chromium and its forks (Chrome, Edge, etc). I'll try to find a way to fix this issue later, but for now anyone using one of these browsers is probably better off browsing the website with Pale Moon, or getting news updates from the Scratching Post. I apologise for the inconvenience.

Added a goofy dream I had last night to the Somnium, and also finally gave the page a brand new, unique design. I had been meaning to do the latter for months now but only suddenly had a perfect vision of what it should look like while mowing the lawn earlier today. I also finally added Macula to the page. Apparently I only came up with his origin story as an entity born in the extradimensional dream world of Aberra after I put up the Somnium, and never thought to give him a cameo afterward.

Finally, I have added three new Affiliates: Soukds, Actually Autistic Blogs List, and antikrist.

Halloween night is upon us, and I have arrived just in the nick of time with a spooky new fan-shrine for the classic DOS computer game Monster Bash: the Haunted Manor. Please be warned that the page largely does not work in Internet Explorer due to that browser being too incompetent to handle CSS animations, of which the page contains many. You will also need JavaScript enabled for the interactivity to work.

In other creepy news, I have fixed the broken links to the legendary creepypastas Infected Town and The Patient That Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine over on the Haunted House section and added one new Affiliate, Arez.

To anyone who may be wishing some of the existing game shrines at the Mystery Mansion had more meat to them, I am considering going back and expanding some of them eventually. To be quite frank, every single one of these shrines has been a spur-of-the-moment experiment that I made up as I went along. I never have any clue what I'm going for before I start chipping away at one of them, and I am steadily learning some useful CSS/JavaScript tricks as I work through these, some of which I really wish I had known about when working on prior shrines.

17 October 2021
I wrote up a very drawn-out analysis of the many intersections between autism and personality disorders, on the UFO section. It turned out to be the longest thing I have put up here so far, but the subject really did turn out to be a rabbit hole that warranted all of that. Be sure to check out the Red Forest section that I put up yesterday if you have any interest in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or simply enjoy reading about goofy/obscure computer game glitches!

Once again, I have no immediate promises right now beyond the Monster Bash fan-shrine for the Mystery Mansion on Halloween. I am hoping to have the Quarry section finally up soon-ish. Macula's Maze will take a while yet as I will need to learn how to create text adventures in Inform and make sure I can get that set up via JavaScript on Neocities. Time/energy permitting, those two "missing teeth" on the sidebar will finally be filled in within the next few months.

Greetings, netizen! You are now entering Koshka's Kingdom, my humble settlement in the vast seas of cyberspace. Here you can find a wide variety of fun material including everything from a detailed manifesto on restoring the Web to its former glory, to interactive shrines to classic 90s computer games, to articles about autism from the perspective of an actually autistic adult, to a shrine to the Ancient Egyptian cat goddess Bast, to articles on astrophysics, to goofy fan-shrines to Dragon Ball, and much more! There's also a fairly vast links page for you to explore once you're bored with this place!

You can navigate my website using either the sidebar or the click-able Site/World Map that lives at the bottom of this page.

I am Koshka (Russian for cat) and I am a devotee of many things who misses the free, wild, and creative Web of olde, and is grateful for the opportunity that Neocities has bestowed upon me and others to recreate it. In spite of the aesthetics of the front page, I am in fact a male - I'm just a big fan of "girly" aesthetics like pink/purple, hearts, cats, etc and not afraid to show it.
