I made my first firefox extension!

It adds a handy button to your toolbar for surfing sites on the webring.

You can install it from here: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

and you can read the source here: github.com/aadilayub/webring-e

Opened twitter after a long time and instinctively tried to find the local timeline...

I regret to say that the person on the left was me a few years ago

100% this. CAPTCHAs test you on American road signs, American transport, English phrases. It is neo-colonial as fuck.

Have been using this for a week on my work laptop. It's crazy how close it gets to making Firefox look identical to Chrome

The torrent for the final PDF and all the source/assets files of FLOSS+Art (2008), an edited collection of texts about Free/Libre Open Source Software (#FLOSS) and #art #music and #design , is once again seeded!

Big thanks to @hellocatfood who motivated me to do so :)

"... It is perpetual vaporware. I have seen a lot of whitepapers ... The idea to combine mesh and blockchains seems to be based on this abstract 'decentralized' notion, not any clear idea how this could possibly work ..." nycmesh.net/blog/meshcoin 😍

Wonderful write-up in today's Bandcamp Daily about Karachi's indie/electronic scene in the late 00's & early 2010's. A trip down memory lane for me.

Trump didn't start new wars directly. But he invited Turkey to invade and destroy the fledgling feminist cooperative economy development among the US's military allies against ISIS. This is heartbreaking. rojavainformationcenter.com/20

In the lest few days I made a retro cyberpunk spread for an zine as a part of fkr (a style of tabletop rpg play) collective. Available for free here: inplay.itch.io/1

It made me want to work a bit more on HEAVY WIZARDRY (my cyberpunk hacker rpg), because I enjoy messing with layout (and had to hold back a bit for the zine), but I am not sure if I am in the right mindset again to work on a game about rage against the system.

@neauoire The wikipedia article only says "ancient india" and doesn't say how far back it could go.

but, the vedic game known to us as "Snakes and Ladders" is structurally equivalent to a finite state machine, so you could, in principle, implement regular expressions and program language parsers as games of snakes and ladders.
