You _have_ to toot.

I used to be a lot weirder. I'm a middle-aged geek, father to two boys, and I bang out code at . I live near Boston now, but I grew up in central Mississippi.

I know the conlangs and . I write hobby code in and .

I play a bunch of instruments, but none well enough to perform. I've been playing around with a DAW.

I started the instance, trying to be a part of the small-scale Internet.

I try to be as kind as I can.

Shameless plug, I've written a chapter about Mastodon, content moderation, Gab, the Fediverse, and this phenomenon for an upcoming book published by UMD. And here's a video about it, complete with 🎵animation! 🎵

I've been playing Nier: Replicant lately (it's great if you like that kind of thing) and Kainé is really suffering from

Also I'm really annoyed at myself for having some central mysteries spoiled, despite having ample warning.

I like the idea of adding a Turbo button to my desktop machine and have it control the CPU governor.

i always really liked this part of the article recounting rms's experiences with lisp & early emacs development. i feel like the ideas captured here aren't given nearly enough thought & attention as they should in a movement that's supposed to be about empowering computer users.

“The ‘chip shortage’ is something that the world doesn’t really grasp yet, in its full importance and magnitude. It is the first climate catastrophe related shortage to hit us at a civilizational, global level.” interesting times... (v @opensourcerer)

@digifox Thanks for turning me onto . After some tutorials, it's a lot nicer than what I was doing.

Observation: All money-using organizations become indifferent to stimuli that are not money.

My mobile web experience sure would be improved if there weren't constant popups asking me if I wanted to use the more invasive, intrusive, pushy app.

Currently taking an class. The sad fact is that I've used a lot more than ASL.

Disco in the streets, panic in the sheets.

There's at least one Ukrainian group of crazies where they all use Ithkuil. Seems like a win if your adversary has to learn your weirdo conlang to infiltrate or eavesdrop on your group.

This looks interesting and self-descriptive:

This will probably be the first place I look next time I'm looking.

hey #fediverse, I'm looking to create a collection of social sustainable VPS providers

some characteristics:
- green energy
- worker owned
- organic growth
- opensource
- NO hyperscale

some examples:

please send me more!

tip: if you are missing a chessboard, Lichess works great on the Boox with a little twiddling. The dark mode, its default, doesn't display correctly, but switching it to Light mode fixes the UI. After that, disable the animations. You can play online, against the app, or (my use) as an in-person board set between the players.

if you get enough smart programmers together all they do is make lisp, so you have to make sure theres some less-smart "control rod" programmers in the team

BookWyrm is a Fediverse alternative to GoodReads.

They've just opened their onboarding site at:

("Onboarding" is when you make it as easy as possible for people to join something.)

BookWyrm and its instances are currently still in beta testing, but you can join now if you want to try it out. Instances marked as "closed" mean you can join but you have to request an invitation.

I think @gargron is making a big mistake here by signaling his intent to phase out the local timeline :

Besides debates about what "diverse" means, it's taking away a major incentive for people to start and maintain an instance.

Starting an instance to host a community is appealing to some people.

Starting an instance to do free IT for a distributed server farm of homogeneous instances seems like a hard sell.

I expected to get depressed after playing , but not about the state of the mobile gaming industry.

Nier: Reincarnation is the prettiest iteration of ProgressQuest I've ever seen. A beautiful trash gacha game. I am disappoint.
