I did it! Finally made a full video showing how I make isometric mini worlds in #Krita out of Creative Commons photos and images.

This world has a Japanese tea garden theme, and I ran the screen recorder while I made it, then added commentary of the process.

I'm looking for feedback on which techniques used people would most like dedicated step by step tutorials on, so please share your thoughts.


if not thats fine, i just wanted to do a rough check of prior art before implementing my own.

I was talking to a pro-NFT person earlier today, and they were talking about how they didnt really like the ethos of NFTs, but some of the things it claims to offer weren't really easily available through non-NFT methods. While pretty much everything is *possible* without using NFT technologies, i havent really seen any actual implementations. does there exist some platform that lets users trade user-created tokens? it can be centralized or federated or whatever.

i wonder what the log4j mindustry turret is going to look like

The complex feeling of disappointment and relief when I found out that the David Mitchell co-writing the 4th Matrix movie is not English comedian and celebrity game show contestant David Mitchell

My "MuseCY Holdings promises to keep Audacity free and open source" t-shirt has people asking a lot of questions already answered by my shirt

On another note, this seems like a really practical property of FOSS, namely that its impossible (or at least very stupid) to "buy" the software since the people who actually put the work into it can just copy and paste it over under a new name with no technical losses. Of course, there's still some friction in moving users over, but its a lot better than having to start over from scratch.

I don't really get whats going on with freenode. Is there no way they could've resisted the takeover? Is it something the staff were putting a lot of effort into to prevent, but couldn't? I haven't heard anything about it until like yesterday, so from my perspective, it seems like they saw something bad might happen and immediately dropped freenode as a knee-jerk reaction, which would be a shame given the legacy surrounding it.

Also feels reminiscent of whats going on with Audacity.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as GNU/Linux, is in fact, Linux/GNU, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Linux. GNU is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Linux system, made useful by the hardware resource management, drivers, and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

i wish there was a word for the conflicting feeling when you do a terrible job with something but youre glad its over

everyones posting pictures of pies and its giving me quite the craving. i wonder if theres a noticable uptick of pie sales every year on pi day?

i was initially a little annoyed that mastodon hides engagement metrics like favorites, but i just started hiding youtube views/likes and its made me enjoy the platform a lot more (though it still sucks and i yearn for the day everyone swaps to peertube or something)

i fixed my glue+glass brick phone and i feel like a genius

still getting a phone with a removable battery once this one dies for good though

I swapped out about half of my computer today (gpu, mobo, cpu), and it broke a bunch of stuff. I'm especially frustrated because i decided to buy all the parts used, so I cant be certain that they all work perfectly to begin with. I'm gonna try reinstalling my os tomorrow, but if that doesnt work, ill probably have to buy another cpu or something.
