Pinned toot


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:

Google knows me so well, showing me articles like this!

Really should just get off my butt and set up an RSS reader on my phone. These Google Recommended™️ articles are very rarely interesting at all.

TIL Ferris is actually canonically a trans woman. Sure makes me seem real shit for calling her a catboy in the past, but I mean, I was just very oblivious. Thankfully anime characters don't have feelings. (Sorry to anyone who might've felt bad indirectly though.)

Turns out I had a cute anime girl avatar all along, just like everyone else :blobcat:

So turns out debian stretch has a pretty old version of Python. Decided to compile 3.7 myself, and it's been running the tests for an hour now.

I always forget that compiling stuff like this takes ages.

Posted straight from the field with mobile Pinafore technology!

In today's news about spooky computer business: my Firefox hasn't been able to render the Mastodon frontend ever since I was forced to reboot by a Rust thing I was writing that ate my processing power so much I had to do a hard reboot.

Hello friends, I thought I might want to stream one day, but I really don't like the idea of facecam, so I came up with the (completely original) idea of having a bongocat for my facecam and have her write on a little keyboard instead, but couldn't find any decent programs for the job. So here I present to you: programming bongocat, written in python (sadly I couldn't figure out to capture global hotkeys in any other language)

repo can be found here if you're interested

I've been away for so long that most of my followers have moved on so here's a new #introduction to get some new friends (boosts appreciated)

I'm a game developer and I sometimes post some stuff about the games that I'm making, but more often than not I tend to not finish my games. I have some projects finished but they are mostly engine and systems development (libraries and engines). I also really like art and I make some sometimes but not too often really. Most of my posts just usually end up being general micro-blogging.

I'm also a trans girl and I have quite a few mental health issues like borderline personality, major depressive disorder and social anxiety, so I might talk about those sometimes also.

Beam trap ability, applying configurable positive effects to allies and negative to enemies, so it can function as a defensive ability (gain shield), an offensive ability (buff damage), a peel (stun enemy) or anything else. #screenshotsaturday #gamedev #indiegames #UnrealEngine

dear outrage artists,

just so there is no misunderstandings, i just want to clarify that :joulutorttu: is supposed to be a pastry, not a swastika. even though it does not look remotely like a swastika, some have displayed this confusion in the past.

it is part of the finmoji set, which are a government-commissioned public domain emoji set. they were included in Pleroma for use in the test suite.

you can read more about that emoji here:
