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.

A classic story that bears reposting:

"We're having a problem sending email out of the department."

"What's the problem?" I asked.

"We can't send mail more than 500 miles," the chairman explained.

I choked on my latte. "Come again?"

"We can't send mail farther than 500 miles from here," he repeated. "A little bit more, actually. Call it 520 miles. But no farther."

me, waking up at 10am and opening blender: "Time to make a character model for my game!"

me, after watching 93 magic trick compilations on youtube:

what is my #litepub proposal exactly?

it is meant to be a subset of #activitypub which is reasonably simple to implement with robust security properties, based in part on Pleroma's ActivityPub Internal Representation:

- no JSON-LD, but valid #litepub messages will pass validation against the https://www.w3.org/ns/activitystreams @context, providing #activitypub compatibility

- HTTP signatures required for object integrity validation (activitypub requires no specific validation method)

- unowned objects are always referenced by IRI giving the originating server control over their integrity (deleting objects is safe in a conformant implementation)

- Optional WebFinger integration for account discovery

- Subset of W3C ActivityStreams 2.0 core vocabulary matching what is really used in the real world

- Stronger requirements on what actors and attributedTo objects may be.

- IRCv3-style extensions instead of JSON-LD, since implementations will need to parse them anyway.

Hi again fedi, I accidentally filled up my instance's storage so I was offline for a day :blobowo:

Reporting live from the cold north: I am currently melting. I think I need to sit in a bucket so I don't lose any important bits while this heatwave is on. Seriously, I should be sleeping, but I can't because the only way to stay alive is a fan, and that isn't very sleep inducing.

You know when you don't post for a while and want to post but don't know what to post and then you just don't post? Yeah me too.

It's 6 AM. Been playing Kingdoms and Castles for the whole night. It's very good. Now, I really need to be up in like 4 hours, so, good night.

@hoodie why do the cishet techies not want me to have my fucking ears

You know when someone makes a game that's like, roughly, 1:1 exactly what you've been thinking about making for years? Pretty fun stuff.

In other news, for the first time in a while, I sunk 5 hours into a game by complete accident. Kingdoms and Castles is pretty good! kingdomsandcastles.com/

I know Gnome apps are considered bloated but nautilus really drove the point home with their icon choice.

I love/hate having ideas when I'm tired. I love it because they're most inspiring and amazing ideas I ever get, but they also always get shut down by grumpy morning me the day after.
