The FOSS community should gather together all the different public domain universes(Lovecraft, Robin Hood, Dracula, all the pulp/noir characters, etc) and build some sort of dope expanded franchise/universe of free & open source games/movies/books/TV/other cool stuff.

Come on, you know you want this to happen :D

Soooo I found a random dithering tool on the internet and played around with it by dithering the Zdzislaw Beksinski painting I use as my wallpaper.

Needless to say, I have truly done an a e s t h e t i c

"The Jain's Death" was one of the first truly strange things I remember stumbling across during my early experiences of the internet.

I've re-encountered it a few times, and tonight I was pleasantly surprised to find it still online:

This week I got some good Python 3 practice by writing a port of Robot Finds Kitten, as the only Python port I can find is written in Python 2.

The code is as shitty and amateurish as all my other Python 3 projects, but I've gotten it working and hopefully I can release it soon after fixing up some buggy spots ^_^

I think @gargron is making a big mistake here by signaling his intent to phase out the local timeline : github.com/mastodon/mastodon-i

Besides debates about what "diverse" means, it's taking away a major incentive for people to start and maintain an instance.

Starting an instance to host a community is appealing to some people.

Starting an instance to do free IT for a distributed server farm of homogeneous instances seems like a hard sell.

Why does it feel like nowadays open source software is actually getting better in terms of UX than megacorp stuff

Oh wait

It's because often volunteer devs actually care about the user

(2/2) Right now I'm fiddling with font.tal, So far I've worked out how to change the text(changed it to the first paragraph of the Uxn XXIIVV entry!) & font(changed it to the very sexy Geneva!), which took making lots of accidental glitch art to do, but I somehow managed it and am very proud of myself :D

I'm still struggling with color positioning, and how to substantially modify the program, though. Anybody got any online assembly/stack-based programming/etc related resources I can read?

(1/2) I've been seeing lots of interesting things being made with Uxn on my TL recently, so out of curiosity I cloned it's repo & started messing around with it despite having no prior experience with assembly due to being a gamedev who only bothers to learn the bare minimum tech I need to make art or avoid being locked into big corporate products :-}

Hey Mastodon!

I have a question for you all: What, in your opinion, is the most user-friendly OS ever created? I need some stuff to study for a thing I'm making that relates heavily to OS design.

This post resonates with me so strongly I was practically laughing while reading it. Absolutely love the concepts and I think about this super frequently. Great ideas! ploum.net/the-computer-built-t

Watching my federated timeline and seeing weird domain names makes me happy

I mean, like, godforsaken.website? plush.city? magicalgirl.party? cybre.space? chaos.social?

This is the good internet

#audacity fork needs help. I know you're eager to return to a version of #Audacity that isn't about data collection.

As a kid, I would celebrate holidays by theming my computer appropriately. I remember one time where I set Windows XP's wallpaper to a video of some blinking Christmas lights, for example.

I wish other people celebrated holidays this way, because right now soooo many 4th of July fireworks are going off outside and I can't stand the noise :(

I sincerely believe Éliane Radigue is the greatest electronic music composer of the 20th century and I am really happy to see her stuff being reissued. This is one of my favourites. Made, AFAIK, by recording feedback from a microphone placed against a speaker (the "Larsen effect" ) and then manipulating the tapes of that.

i got my hands on an old east german arabic typewriter and ive been taking it for a spin! the thing is pretty wild. missing some obscure but important letters, representing some letters up to four different times to accommodate for the cursive nature of the script. the typeface is spartan but fine. it has a certain charm to it. i dont have a project in mind, just noodling for now.
