Reading Google's style guides is like reading a treatise on the merits of transmutative alchemy.
I'm sure there's a reason why they're a million pages long, there's a lot of standardization you want to do so you can make sure everyone's code is compatible, but for fuck's sake I just want to get a general idea of naming schemes and shit.
It's not very long, and you don't have to pay if you don't want to, so if you want to participate in the study you can download it at the link below and it will take you to a quick questionnaire.
Only available on Windows, sorry.
If you download an indie game for free and you end up enjoying it, consider sending a tip to the developer, if they take them. Just send what you think it's worth. Making a video game, even a very simple one, is very difficult and time-consuming. Be a part of making someone's dream come true.
It's a shame that I'm not a super handy guy, because in another life I think I would have really enjoyed working at a hardware store. Lots of awesome tools to talk about and learn about.
Every once in a while I think I should go into computer repair for much the same reason, but alas I'm not too knowledgeable about computer hardware either. The closest equivalent for software would be IT, and I think I would end up in prison if I did IT.
I disagree slightly on the point about sexualization of clothes. I know that this author was just reporting the data on that particular point, rather than addressing it, but I think it's worth pointing out that the clothes that are considered sexy on a man aren't generally referred to as "sexualized." I think it would be hard to argue that a shirtless man wearing combat pants and boots would be considered very sexually appealing to most straight women.
- There is little evidence linking video games to "toxic #masculinity" or #sexism toward women.
- Moral panics and prejudice toward #gaming communities remain common.
- A new report repeats familiar patterns of #MoralPanic and misinformation about games and gamers.
- Advocating for egalitarian representations of women in games is a worthwhile cause, but it must be undertaken honestly.

Guess what isn’t covered by this? Yes, the Small Web. Is it time to take the idea that we could all own our own places on the Web and communicate with each other privately seriously? I think so, at least.

The thought occurred to me earlier today that I mostly just use my web browser to look up code documentation and check my bookmarked webcomics for updates. Even for e-mail I mostly use my phone now. In practice I do use my desktop browser to check Mastodon, but only because I want a graphical client and don't want to use my phone.
If I had a simple tool that was more optimized for reading webcomics I could theoretically replace my web browser with Lynx or something and never look back.
Currently #fediverse is mainly a place for tinkerers, oppressed and censored. And this is not a good thing.
It exists as a reaction to bad trends much more than something positive in itself.
An alternative to Twitter,
an alternative to Facebook,
an alternative to Reddit.
A hotfix to social media's flaws that sacrifices a lot to get some things right.
How to change this?
What the media of the future should actually be like to be both likeable and user-respecting?
I knew about (now defunct) MegaBots .inc giant mecha colosseum, and various smaller robot fighting competitions.
But as it turns out, robot theaters are also a thing!
Didn't find any on Peertube sadly, but here is some via Invidious.
We just crossed 100 man-days of accumulated staff on call time. Neat!
On libera, `/stats p` shows the list of staff who are available to support you. It can be a good port of call if you need staff specific help.
The fastest way is usually #libera, but we understand that there are some questions that need an authoritative or privileged response.
