Okay, I want to try to focus my spare-time-project-energy for the coming months.
I will do my very best to restrain myself to three projects:

1. Getting to a minimal playable state, so y'all can start making small virtual gardens. I'm not good at graphics, so keep expectations low for the first release.

2. , a PHP fediverse server project by @InspectorCaracal . I'm thinking of making a zatnosk-experiments branch and just do my best to run wild with it.

When I think of a future with Open Social Media, I imagine three pillars.

1) Microblogging (ActivityPub), for sharing thoughts with strangers, ephemeral community building, and broad+global reach.

2) Forum / Stable Community (no good solution yet, AFAIK), for discussing, planning, buying/selling locally. All within a distinct group of people, membership of which can be managed.

3) Peer2Peer (Scuttlebutt?), for talking directly to friends, family, nearby people, and easily sharing files.

If you don't know me and you message me and you say something ironically, you need to indicate that somehow because I will take you seriously otherwise, and this is 100% on *you*

If I don't know you and there's no previous context and you say something ironic

I will interpret what you said as the plain meaning of your words

Please keep this in mind; if you're contacting me out of the blue, it is your responsibility to communicate clearly

And now, the beast they call vacuum cleaner shall awoken! Ia ia ia, vacuum n'est pas fthagn!

Did you know that you can just pour pancake batter into a sandwich toaster and nobody smashes their way into the kitchen and stops you? #food #cooking

It has been established in canon that starfleet's Starship Discovery is capable of traveling to different dimensions of sorts, so basically it's perfectly reasonable to drop a star trek away team encounter into your DnD campaign.

Voting is not activism. Voting does not replace activism. It does not prevent activism. It does not contradict activism.

In the best case, it can help enable activism.

In the worst case, it can mitigate harm.

Oookay. After 32 holes there's visible wear on the drill bit. I am unsure whether it's my technique or whether I should have used a harder bit. I'm drilling in brick, so it's not like I need a steel-drill, but it's not far off.

(And yes, I know I'm not hitting steel. I've struck steel with a (different) concrete drilling bit, and in addition to making steel dust, it also killed the bit _very_ fast.)

The drill bit isn't supposed to glow red when you pull it out of the wall, is it?

@funkwhale Does have the ability to transcode from .flac to .mp3?

I'm more interested in saving storage space than perfect quality, and it'd be way easier if I could just ask my funkwhale instance to do the work, rather than converting everything myself on my local copy of my collection (and risk fucking something up and having to re-rip some/all of my CDs).

@ajroach42 I was tech guy responsible for spaceship simulation at a small all-day LARP like this last year. We used Artemis for spaceflight simulation, and had the crew sit at five computers in a school's gym changing room. The gymnastics hall was filled with a labyrinth for boarding ships and nerf gun fights.

"I was tech guy responsible for spaceship simulation" is one hell of a sentence.

I should put that on my CV.

all i'm saying is, with the proper techniques and suitably pliable gold wire, you could totally crochet a turing-complete scarf
