A lot of my software decisions these days are made by looking in the issue tracker, not the documentation, and I’m not looking for errors. I’m looking for how human interactions are valued and managed.

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. testflight.apple.com/join/ln6y

@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

god help me, i'm starting a second modular synth rack/row

@exquisitecorp and i couldn't get it to work this time for adding kristall! argh

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

i'm thinking of doing a weekly self-playing generative modular ambient set on twitch once a week. although i guess i could just hook it up, set and forget it

@exquisitecorp @neauoire woohoo!
during some periods in the last years i have considered as a "life goal" to build and run by hand something low-level like that until the end of time(s)...

(kind of inspired by this strip: <existentialcomics.com/comic/23> )

i had set that goal relatively aside, but now you all are bringing me back towards it :tealheart:

Get your tickets for #rc3 while they are hot and free!

tickets.events.ccc.de/RC3/

They'll still be free, when they became cool. :D

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.

Here's a screenshot from me pulling up Increpare's puzzlescript. LOL at the tiniest web-based IDE game engine ever!

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: 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...
