I'm Gaeel, I'm a random movement generator that happens to stumble and latch onto some fun things occasionally
Recently I've been playing with image stuff (?) and modular synths
Web dev protip: if you're searching for an open-source component, use the keyword "accessible" or "a11y." E.g. "accessible dialog," "accessible carousel," "accessible autocomplete."
Accessibility is like the brown M&Ms in Van Halen lore – if they didn't mess that up, then they probably didn't mess anything else up either. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/brown-out/
So this just happened
"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

DBR UK (Morphy Remix) - Policies (Morphy Remix)
This track exists on an almost tectonic scale. Mountainous rocks shift around relentlessly, slower than the eye can perceive, but so rapidly that the mind struggles to follow
This track is the stuff of legend for me, it broke my mind when I first heard it, years ago...

There is a time for discussions like:
* How to interact with police safely
* How to navigate capitalism and live
* How to talk to doctors without screwing up your life
And there is also a time for discussions like:
* Why we shouldn't have to worry about safety around police (or whether they should exist)
* How capitalism itself could be replaced/improved
* Why we should be able to trust our doctors
And derailing one kind of discussion with the other is rarely helpful
CES rescinds own award from sex toy because sex toys are obscene https://boingboing.net/2019/01/08/ces-rescinds-own-award-from-se.html
The problem with VR has never been that creative people can't make very cool stuff with it. It's that it was spearheaded by companies who were all looking to seize key strategic territory in the next phase of merging the internet with physical reality (which is as horrifying as it sounds), and create a new must-have product category like the iPhone. The former would be terrible news for civilization, the latter simply isn't happening for a huge range of cultural, ergonomic, and tech reasons.

If you, a guy with male privilege and some nerves, want to help your fellow humans that happen to be non-males, TALK THE TALK to the douchey bros who engage in casual sexism.

Hi! I'm a 3D artist and EN->FR translator looking for freelance work!
I'm especially fond of colorful cute things, but I have experience doing more realistic/darker things too
Recent translation works include a 29000 words sci-fi game, Friary Road by @firstname.lastname@example.org, and most works on my medium
Here's a fun view of the generated SDF data
We're marching through the mesh, front to back. In the pure data RGB encodes a normalised vector towards the closest point on the model, and A encodes the distance to the point.
Here A is used to darken the RGB channels, so we can visually "understand" the data
Hmmm... This is getting a bit hopeless
Why is the top of the head risen like that?
What's with the dusty artifacts around the ears and neck?
How do I smooth out the "pixellation" without a ridiculously high resolution?
Not expecting answers to these, I'm just a little frustrated, spent nearly two days, and the results aren't what I expected...
