@neauoire @cblgh not really... I used classic Mac for many years and never had a desire to use unix junk on it

Recalling this design system I created in Nodebox a few years back.


Thinking a lot about Maslow's Heirarchy of Needs & how much of the world has shifted in some way due to pandemic. Safety is threatened for many. When we get through this, what will be the lasting impact on our collective psyche?

Went through the Hydra book today after a long hiatus. I picked up a new techniques & plan to go deeper naotohieda.com/blog/hydra-book

Intrigued by the idea of a “depth year” - as someone that enjoys starting & does not often finish a project or master a subject area. It seems like it has a lot of inherent self-reflection. raptitude.com/2017/12/go-deepe

@evan Interesting, ASIO is on my list to try; but actually this is a scenario I can work with - when the audio is later than the visuals I can insert delays as necessary. This happens when I am reading the audio player input; it's not the same for microphone, obviously.

Hi Merveilles!
I’m using the New Year to kick off my favorite life hack:


It’s really simple, just devote some time every single day to the things you want to pursue/improve upon. Doing these things daily build muscle memory and create new neural pathways. Some things I’m working on everyday recently are:
* exercise
* playing music
* better hygiene
* fighting fascism
* spending time with family
* learning software

Stumbled into this Soviet era animation & am mesmerized. Happy New Year! youtu.be/oUk8uXYk_6A

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
