I heard the hot new thing is writing a new intro post.
I make videogames, study math, and frequently write bad posts on the federated social medias. I'm also posting from my island of solitude, moe.neon.moe, so if you're a gamedev, @ me so I can fav your screenshots.

honestly the lack of innovation in this space, the space of bridging and linking social media and other closed-garden models such as facebook or discord and the like is frankly insulting: the only way to safely allow users to convert to more ethical software such as the fediverse itself is through such bridges: and nobody wants to make them, for some fucking reason

Proper release time for another incomplete jam thing :tuturu: Here's my sand castle generator for : nc.itch.io/sandcastles

The actual generation code is practically nonexistent, so the castles will tend to look very similar, which is the part I'm most unhappy with. But it's something, so here it is.

Hey Fediverse! Have you published a game that you wouldn't mind having someone stream for a few hours? If so, let me know and I'll buy a copy, then set up a time to stream it. Let me know if I can help you out!

I made a thing for #procjam! Procedurally generated roguelike dungeon overviews, complete with annotations warning you of dangerous enemies. Try it at lokkij.itch.io/dungeon-overvie

The best way to use computers is to rely only on software that is open source, 100% hardware agnostic, and eternal, existing apart from space and time

Thinking about trying to follow along with Handmade Hero again. It's just, so time consuming. But I want to learn good things. But time. But learning. Butts.

:mastodon_oops:

so what is Pleroma about anyway?

in a nutshell, it's about autonomy. it's about social media autonomy for every person on the planet. all 7.6 billion of us. nobody else telling us to do, what to say, and nobody else forcing us to see things we don't want to see.

this means Pleroma is being built for an entirely new scale of fediverse: one with billions of nodes. it's also why Pleroma supports alternative transports such as TOR and I2P out of the box.

it also is a major differentiator between Pleroma and Mastodon. in the Mastodon model, there's maybe a few million islands which host a few thousand people each. to contrast, in our model, everyone who wants to host their own instance does so. that means everyone can choose to have total social media freedom.

but it's not just social media, we also intend to use the same underlying tech to enable real-time communications with the same capabilities as the social media side of things.

and it's universal: different frontends for different preferences. like Mastodon but don't have the resources to run it? use Pleroma with Mastodon frontend and apps. like GNU social? Pleroma's default frontend was modelled after it. like diaspora* but want to talk to your fediverse friends? use Feather. like the alternative Mastodon frontends like Pinafore and Brutaldon? they work too.

hate spam and harrassment? we have a mostly as yet untapped framework called MRF which can be leveraged to automate moderation of an instance.

want to modify it? drop by #pleroma on freenode and we help with that too.

High DPI screens are pretty cool, turns out Show more

what naming scheme do you use for your computers (if any)?

(boost so more people can answer)

It seems like Firefox crashes once I toggle open the video in this post (which I'm replying to). I wonder why :thinkinglayton:

Procjam progress, longish Show more

good god. with the latest pleroma build, pleroma.site is using less than 128mb ram for everything.

hello everyone, here is a very good synthwave album by sim gretina, pls to enjoy

@vantablack "listen, son, I know EVE online is fun but there's a real life out there too, where you can also have fun... I'm just saying, don't hang out with those kids so much. eventually you'll be 30 and wonder where your life went."

Emergent behavior counts as procedural generation, right? I think I'm going to make a thing where there is a world with people and the people have feelings and needs and do things.

Nice going with the GDPR popups. I guess I didn't need to go browse Pinterest anyways.

Not much procjam progress today. Came up with a few ideas, but none of them really seemed interesting enough to spend a week on. Maybe tomorrow! 😬
