Notes: Wordle, Minecraft server in Bash, lots of JSON

The ride my bike uphill game continues.

Despite being relatively lazy Wordle players, we both still enjoy the game and its stripped-down design and clean functionality. But, what was once a simple and refreshing free-to-play game is now a tracking-friendly asset of The New York Times.

Thankfully, Wordle is just HTML and Javascript and can be easily rescued from the Wayback Machine.

All over the web Wordle lives on, unencumbered by its new owners. I placed my copy here.
