Would it make sense for an #ActivityPub server to also use #MicroPub for the client API?

Kind of looking at this stuff and thinking, hmm, it feels like both protocols could go hand-in-hand?

Just read a post asking Eugen to resign from developing Mastodon and I really have to ask: what are you folks smoking?

It’s his project. It’s open source. Fork it if you want to. But what kind of mind-blowing sense of entitlement drives you to think you can tell someone they should stop working on something they’ve built?

HomeTown is a fork of Mastodon which lets you make instance-only posts, adjust character limits and read long form rich text blog posts.

It's still part of the Fediverse, and HomeTown users can interact with Mastodon users totally fine.

Tech people can get self-hosting instructions here:

Non-tech people can use a managed hosting service to start their own HomeTown instance:

Re: the recent controversy & local timelines: I'm fine with people using social media however they want. I don't peruse the local timeline as much as I probably should, because I'm not super social.

However, I am fine with people who do use their local timeline, which apparently is alien to Gargron. He seems to think that everyone should use Mastodon the way he does. This goes against the spirit of , and if this is his attitude he should probably re-evaluate his branding.

Are there any #IndieWeb people who are proficient on the subject that I might be able to interview for a video?

I'm looking to distinguish #fediverse and indieweb, and articulate their similarities and differences.

Hey folks - general coding question, particularly in respect to low-memory and retrocomputing environments.

Is there a generally known "good" technique or efficient approach for moving a viewport window around a stored map? Think of an Ultima 4 kind of deal.

It's kinda hard to find info about something like this now without getting a ton of results specific to Unity etc.

Any pointers welcomed, general info and commentary over specific code examples preferred.

Thanks! :awesome:

You know, it just occurred to me that mannequins are kind of a weird strategy.

Material Maker is an open-source, insanely powerful procedural PBR texture generation tool build on Godot Game Engine (MIT-licensed).

I made this 4x4 grass PBR tileset in Material Maker.
This is how it looks when applied to a field.

Hey I've got a great idea. In the middle of the night, let's go to that small town location we just bought and change all of the POS systems and order taking screens and all of the computers without telling anybody or training them on the new system.

What's the worst that could happen? A 50% increase in order time resulting in a severe hit to our daily earnings?

Fuck you, Corporate.
