lol if i spent that much time loading objs and tweaking the display for it all to just be a ui decoration, that'd be the funniest thing ever

Put this unfinished thing back online

One day I'll finish the weird stuff that is supposed to happen with the anomalies

Lovely side-effect of running your own Git server (I'm using Gitea): Add a hook to pushes to your website repo and have them deploy automatically
