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. 🎲 πŸ’» :ferris: 🌻 πŸ–₯️ :lyra: :winkingfelix: :lambda:

Glerminal 0.3.0 has released! Here is a pretty cool short video demonstrating some of the core features it brought with it. You can now switch between menus naturally, use parser for menus so that you can have some parts of your buttons colored and windows are a lot prettier now!

Intrested? Check it out! It's my coolest project to date

Still about Trasnhumance. A longer capture to show how the second level looks like.

Hey fedi, got any suggestions for ? In the past I've bought a bunch of kbs with cherry mx switches (red, brown, blue) and one with Razer greens, but I kinda want to stop this cycle and just get a real good one.

I enjoy the blues the most, but the noise is horrible, and I hear that the cherry mx switches aren't actually that good in the high end. So: I'm looking for a quiet tactile keyboard with a high budget, but not so high that I'd order anything custom.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

post a hot take on mastodon with a punch and then take a nap. I've never seen a more relatable tech product than this

Turns out the OpenVR addon in works very well! I guess my first impressions were indeed fouled by my own Linux setup, probably the nvidia drivers.

CRITICAL SECURITY UPDATE: Synapse admins please upgrade to v0.34.0.1 or v0.34.1.1 immediately - bumping in case you missed the last tweet.

Good part of this night: getting loads of ideas and feeling real inspired, words upon words of game design notes have been written.

Less good: I have to wake up in ~2 hours.

Here's a great article going over the importance of RPGMaker and its games! As an amateur #gamedev who spends a lot of time in RPGMaker, it's frustrating how many people dismiss the engine outright or mock the people who use it, so this article is sorely needed.

heyyyyy uh there's a super cute-looking megaman-battle-network-style roguelike in the works?!?!?

Inspired by reading the Unreal Engine EULA and realizing they require you to put a "made with UE4" line with all the registered trademark logos you could imagine. As well as requiring you to write an EULA for your game.


Thinking about how you'd show text to a user in VR that you're legally required to show them. If you just write it somewhere in the world, the player might be looking somewhere else and miss it. If you made it follow the sight of the player, that would kind of solve the problem, but sounds a bit creepy and slightly dystopian. "Accept the Terms and Conditions to clear your vision of possibly literally nauseating legal text."

(Unity kinda does this in all games made with Personal Edition πŸ™ƒ)

my Mastodon Ansible playbook is here

its pretty fucking good if I do say so myself

go test it out, if its broken somewhere, let me know so I can fix it, thanks

The Civilization games are really weird, since I constantly feel like they're super mediocre and not very interesting (after a few hundred hours), yet I still play them, and for very long sessions. Sadly makes it feel like a waste of time.

I feel like this is going to be the fate of free software people (like me) in the eyes of people who are born around this year

"Do your part" energy conservation plans, like turning lights off when you leave the room, are great for your energy bill, but their job as part of "lowering carbon footprints" is to deflect from the big corporations that actually use the vast majority of the power.

For example, the average US stand-alone home uses ~11,000 kWh per year.

The VERY MOST EFFICIENT roadside LED billboard uses ~61,000 kWh per year. That number rises to ~323,000 kWh at the top end.
