I got a badge on my profile for contributing source code to their Arctic Code Vault.

I'm assuming some version of SwashRL was archived. I couldn't find a way to browse what code repositories are actually being stored or what version of the source code has been recorded, and I'm pretty small fish compared to most of the other people who got archived, so I don't know for sure. Still, it's pretty cool to know that five years of off-and-on work will be preserved, even if it's unfinished.

🍂 I'm enhancing old artworks for a special artbook project: tweaking color for CMYK, adding bleeds, painting more details and resizing them for my desktop publishing in Scribus. It's a long process but very rewarding. Here is one of my fav with a new background:

Computers are not intelligent. They only think they are.

I love how allows me to find simple solutions to common display problems.

I have a second monitor that I plug into my laptop for Discord chats and gaming, but it's not always plugged in and the system isn't great about saving configurations, so occasionally adjusting it causes windows to migrate outside of my screen slightly.

On Windows this would require I restart the programs for those windows, but on an xfce interface I just right-click in the taskbar and press "move" and it works.

Entering a gamerz PC store and asking for a chassis in beige.

unpopular opinions, fearmongering 

Speaking as a homosexual, please stop trying to make me fear straight people. It's insulting. Stop trying to correct homophobia by generating a culture of fear. You're not helping anyone.

Furthermore, stop trying to make straight people feel guilty for shit they didn't do. These people are my friends and they have done nothing to me; they've gone to great pains already to make me feel welcome, unlike the people who want to make us afraid to live in this world.

I tried three goddamn times to compile a fresh copy of and it failed at the last hurdle every time. Apparently it can't find a certain OpenGL library or something. If I try with the compiler instead it says it can't find clang++, a program I've never heard of and which apt apparently can't find.

I could use the Steam version, I suppose, but I lose a lot of convenience if I can't compile my own versions without any of the modules I don't need, so this is really frustrating.

"I've been at work for about two hours, I probably should get dressed soon" and other sentences that never would have made sense to me before now.

Today I tried installing with on a computer I got for free from work.

Had a bunch of problems figuring out what partitions I needed. The installed system booted, but for some reason I couldn't run any applications.

Eventually I gave up and installed instead just to make sure the system was at least compatible with Linux, and that worked. is reliable if nothing else.

I'll try again later. I'm pretty sure I can get Void working, I just need to do more research.
