Pinned toot

Hi folks, just joined, thanks to @neauoire for the invite. excited to be part of this community. i mostly do art/coding/noise-jamming , tool-building , linux-wrangling, zine-making type things. i also work on games and am an organizer at babycastles collective. hello to new and old friends

i previously have been borrowing a different neighbor's industrial vacuum but that's not consistent!

Show thread

weird question: i rarely buy anything but does anyone have a recommendation for a vacuum / dustbuster for a studio apartment? small, affordable, well-made?

i thought about purchasing one with my neighbor to share but she is moving out in a a few months.

LOL someone I don't know sent me a video (on instagram) of themselves speedrunning my game Gobi (a minimalist desert survival strategy game)

Made a little bash script that just echos out some CLI commands I need to do semi-frequently. Aliased it to "h" and now I've got my own little cheat sheet I can pull up when I forget stuff. Why didn't I do this sooner?

i made a new (old) game 

@notimetoplay ah cool, i've now tried yours out, the ZX Spectrum one not the lua one. i liked it, and very similar to mine! but i couldn't get to the end, i gave up 😂

@notimetoplay trying to find more of these kinds of things. i previously thought of it as a type of resource management game like Lemonade, Dopewars, Hammurabi

@notimetoplay i don't know if this is stupid, but i waited to finish my own before trying your "Lost in the Jungle" out. I'm assuming similar motivation. Am I correct based on reading your description that this is a "survival strategy" game?

Bug reports accepted: tildegit.org/exquisitecorp/gob

it's very much a retro recreation, so i hope it is interesting for other folks, but no guarantees! it's a labor of love, mostly made to share with my sibling

I was motivated to recreate a shareware game I used to play 25 years ago, with my sister, on a CD-Rom of 100 games for Mac. (system 7?). I don't know the name of that original game but have attempted to implement my own version. it's a resource / survival strategy game like a simplified Oregon Trail game. Plays in the browser, has a pretty good soundtrack!

So, #voidlinux is switching (back) to #openssl.

That makes #OpenBSD the last project which uses #LibreSSL - on the Linux side there is no bigger project left.

Unfortunately, LibreSSL is no drop-in replacement. There is a bunch of software which can't be linked against it. E.g. it isn't possible to build Bareos (a backup software) on OpenBSD. That makes it difficult to maintain such software on systems which uses LibreSSL as default TLS library.

Instead of buying Crypto Art you can just get something from me, then set fire to a tree and dump some cadmium into a local water source.

Made a (slowly-)interactive ambient piece for a person and a web browser. Based on voices (only).

May have bugs.
