PSA: There’s now a pretty fine Gemini client on iOS TestFlight just called Gemini. Works on my 7 year old iPad mini no problem. https://testflight.apple.com/join/ln6yTtqK
@exquisitecorp well I am wary of gear acquisition syndrome but I’ve been gifted an extra rack. Also, since I don’t go back and edit I play all live, and under current setup I have somewhat limited range of 1 1/2 voices (plaits, rings) and sampler (morphogene), not much percussion option, and only stages for limited sequencing and teletype. I think the constraints I have are quite good and productive for generative ambient. Would be nice to have an “expressive playable” rack too
LOL i'm tired of this crap, i can't believe there is still no simple way to pin a downloaded app to the Gnome favorites bar! Even funnier, the most 'straight-forward' solution is this description on "Average Linux User"

for context: Constellation Games is a sci-fi first contact story about a dork whose immediate thought when the aliens show up is that he wants to play their videogames
Over the course of the story he comes to realize that the real treasure is the fully automated luxury gay space anarchism we made along the way
(kind of inspired by this strip: <https://existentialcomics.com/comic/238> )
i had set that goal relatively aside, but now you all are bringing me back towards it
unfortunately, not sure the best way to make a Bitsy game on here. Maybe need to use a different browser. or maybe it's just not responsive design so won't work on this mini thing.
Has anyone been using their PocketChip computer at all recently? I booted mine up and played old Pico-8 (not sure how to upgrade now) and tried Puzzlescript by launching the terminal and browsing: surf puzzlescript.net and puzzlescript works great!! Still fun to play text adventures, nethack, rogue on this thing, though you must plug in external keyboard. I've also made mine into a pirate box though not in a while.
I found this wild project that's a barebones operating system implemented using LuaJIT and its FFI for syscalls: https://github.com/dlannan/ljos
since I ported Polywell to run in the terminal, I was able to get it working inside ljos after some wrangling with termios.
the idea of working with an OS that's rewriteable from the inside out is really appealing to me; no GUI, no background processes, no distractions.
A collection of micro-scores for a recording project I'm working on with a friend.
We're each making two recordings of the actions described. Each action has a sync point we'll use to line the recordings up. Once layered & sequenced, they become a score for further instrumental recordings... #theWorkshop
