It is now possible to help my muesli addiction, or possibly let me afford healthier food.

Having an independent income source would let me work on more free software stuff, even things that don't look good on a CV. And also create more art, possibly involving headpats.
But it's not like I'm starving or anything, so no pressure if you wanna give to someone more in need instead. That someone could even be yourself. Heck, go do something nice for yourself anyways.

This is @grainloom 's art alt! Or @grainloom is @csepp 's social alt! Idk!

To start things off, here is some fanart of I first made because I needed a b&w avatar and then turned into a kind of ars poetica thing. That thing they say about limitations leading to more creativity definitely turned out to be true for this.

Scratching time tonight. Rose shows me where to scratch her, and then I do!
今夜のスクラッチタイム。 ローズは私に彼女を引っ掻く場所を教えてくれます、そして私はそうします!

Time is an illusion that helps things make sense
So we are always living in the present tense
It seems unforgiving when a good thing ends
But you and I will always be back then
You and I will always be back then

Will happen, happening happened
Will happen, happening happened
And we will happen again and again
'Cause you and I will always be back then
You and I will always be back then

I took my time with this one and finally drew my OC Chaska again. Wanted to do something colorful and somewhat painterly. Wanted to emulate Loish's art style a bit, but I'm far away from her skill level. ^^° Really happy with the result so far. :3

Don't get me wrong, I love my pets, but it's not like they are endangered species, whereas birds *are* endangered because of how huge cat populations are.

Kinda sad that we have a cat and a dog because I wanna put a bunch of bird baths in the garden. Maybe I can place one outside my window, that way they'll be safe from all cats...
Anyways, it's weird that humans are so fond of predators. It's not like most families have grain silos that need to be protected from mouses.

gonna stream some aimless doodling if anyone wants to come heckle me

I can't vouch for this particular course, but I am intrigued and in support of ventures of this nature.

This art inspired about 70% of my high school scribbles. It still holds up tbh.

Description: it is a hovering metal "ship" in a desert sailing through a desert. It has a rough utilitarian look. The front looks like an actual ship, while the back is more like a sci-fi low altitude aircraft.

I've finally finished this piece aaaaaaaa

Been working on it intermittently since July 2020!

This depicts Computronics Technician Atieno at work aboard a jovian station

Here's a link to all the tasty worldbuilding details!

And a youtube link for good measure

This piece has been the singularly most complex scene I've ever done, with over 170 objects (not counting the stars in space), several bespoke assets created for this piece, and stars know how many keyframes

If I hadn't stopped myself here I would've kept working on it for another several months lol

@natecull @syntacticsugarglider well yes, it is the most common answer. But the truth-value of something is different from whether you know it.

I don't know how many hairs are on my head, but there are a certain number of hairs on my head, so "I have x hairs on my head" has a truth value independently of whether I (or anyone else) knows it.

@natecull @mithrandir i really don't get why you're literally advocating for null. this is a dead issue, we've paid the infinite price of our collective sin as software engineers and everyone is finally starting to listen to the academics in this one small way. when you can express something in a contextual, specific way using simpler abstractions you don't reach for the nuke that destroys your entire system of formal reasoning. worse is not better.

@eris my hatred for distributed consensus systems in general, regardless of how they work or whether they're wasteful, is bc they're just categorically morally unsound imo. they only reason you need *consensus* and not just *consistency* is if you're trying to embed one property in your system, and that property is *scarcity*. i see scarcity as basically the greatest evil and resent any attempt to try and commodify informational spaces in a way analogous to the hell we all live in right now.

"coding machines" is an incredible work of fiction in the genre of "what if there was a monster in the darkness?"

humanity has a blindspot, and something lives there

BTW - Godot (the best FOSS game engine out there) is looking for help in improving their audio system. If anyone here is into audio, programming and also game developmen - please join the discussion! Let's make Unreal and Unity sweat :D
