Hi! It's hard to structure these posts well so I'll just list out some things I'm interested in with neat emojos attached for a more varied visual experience. 🎲 💻 :ferris: 🌻 🖥️ :lyra: :winkingfelix: :lambda:

Been thinking about designing games based on other games (as opposed to drawing inspiration from other places, like real world experiences), and how that's probably a bad thing. Or maybe not? Extra Credits recently released a video on the topic as well. youtube.com/watch?v=qhj9hnRVPS

Thoughts?

You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.

Put the channel's username in this address:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.

For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?c

what is the "analogue loophole"? why do people say that removing the headphone jack would allow companies to restrict your ability to listen to music? (long, serious) Show more

With the debate over #Microsoft #Windows vs #GNU #Linux raging on, I look at why Windows is unquestionably the top choice in the foreseeable in terms of ease, #accessibility, and #ethics. Noble as #FOSS advocacy is, can it really compete, especially among #women, going forward?

Few games are so influential, even in the year 2019 standard TPC/UPD ports are still reserved for it

Pet peeve: sign in / sign up. Register / login are much easier to differentiate.

Adults: oh you're studying math, so you'll become math teacher?
Me: nah, I'll become a game dev
Actually me: *becomes a game dev teacher* oops

Got a job! Kindasorta, don't have it on paper yet, but I now have a unity course marked up in my calendar. Should probably refresh my unity skills a bit, haven't touched it since last year :thinkinglayton:

I need new , my current ones (audiotechnica ath-50x) are so heavy and they suffocate my ears in a very annoying fashion. Anyone got tips for light, comfortable over-ear headphones for a 150e budget?

Oopsie doopsie. Turns out my instance ran out of ram (which it has 4GB of, good god).

Okay, something's really not right with my instance. The latest two posts are 8h and 4h ago and I had to restart the web process to get anything to work at all. Am I federating at all?

Getting real tired of my instance taking seconds to respond and sometimes just stopping working entirely.

Maybe I should look into the logs and debug it, but you know, I could also play more EU4.

reminder to refer to the collective network as "fedi" instead of "masto".

lots of new people joining, and lots of media attention about Mastodon, we dont want a github situation where an implementation is thought of as synonymous with the tech.

the best part of computers is people can do things how they want to, so its important to make people aware of the different options :lainhappy:
