Hare is a boring programming language

Since Mastodon saw its initial popularity circa 2017, I've noticed that most users and those reporting on it either don't think about the Fediverse as anything more than Mastodon, or treat its history as beginning with Eugen Rochko and the beginning of Mastodon. In fact, Mastodon is the latest in a long line of federated social networks going at least back to Identi.ca, and though I wasn't around for all of it, I find this history pretty interesting. (Thread; boosts welcome!)
THAT IS IT!
That is the Micro Fiction Games Jam finished for another year.
I really want to thank every single one of you who took part in any way, you make this thing an absolute joy to run.
This years theme was a tricky one, and yall just completely nailed it. I think this might be our strongest year of games yet!
You can read them all here: https://microfictiongames.neocities.org/2022/
Every year I am just blown away by the things yall create.
I want to be indexed in Lieu¹, but the requirement is for me to be on the ring².
The thing is, I don't really want to join the ring, as it is too big! 200 members are no joke. I will never in my life have enough time to learn about their sites enough to remember them.
So, @cblgh, can you please index me without being added to the ring? If no, it's ok. I'll then add myself to the ring, whatever. Maybe I'll want to be there one day anyway.
I considered different engines for that.
I mocked up multiple scenes in INSTEAD. Some people might even have access to the source code of the game. I didn't finish it.
Then I thought of Decker, that cool HyperCard derivate. People reported that it uses too many computer resources to run. What?
What about that uxn presentation format? Is it 1bit too?
Maybe 4 colors is better than 2. Maybe I shouldn't limit myself with that, because I draw on paper with markers, and that's many colors
I also want a wind turbine or a watermill, just so they make cool creaking sounds.
And a lighthouse.
Such wishes are impractical and too important, so I'll probably not make them true in this reality, but I expect them to be found in my visual stories, which I wish to make.
Karabiner-Elements has broken critically, built-in macOS's sticky keys are really bad and are unusable. So I am now trying out typing with no sticky keys. How do you all even do that?
NB. Sticky keys work like that. Let's take left shift for an example. You press it, and release it. Then you press letter k, and a capital K is written. You don't need to hold many keys simultaneously.
We are thrilled to release Fungal, a variable fork of DejaVu Sans that can grow like mycelium. Fungal is the fruit of an ongoing collaboration between @triple and @raphael , and is part of the larger project https://fungal.page.

ok clearly this is my design now. My head’s still in old school BBS-oriented retro stylings; this is almost all done with plain text and Unicode box drawing characters. (The Open Book’s font is stubbornly 8x16, a hard requirement that’s limiting, but necessary)
A mask maker. I develop boring niche software, draw non-existent things, and write some hypertexts. Part of the Mycoverse.
