Pinned toot

Nice to meet you! My name is Gueorgui, and I'm a photographer, designer, and engineer living and working in London, UK after living in Russia, France, Germany, and Japan.

In my work life, I'm running a tiny creative studio called A Possible Space (a.possible.space) together with my wife.

I'm interested in the intersections of art, tech, society, and in working for an ethical, sustainable future.

I’m now one of those people who can’t believe how freaking expensive Apple hardware is. What happened? Is this what being married and a business owner has turned me into?

Cancelled my Thinkpad X1 Carbon order as my macbook has returned from the dead. The Thinkpad will have to wait until next time I upgrade my hardware...

I'm the kind of person who always has 50 tabs open, and this firefox extension has been invaluable for reducing the memory load on my laptop: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Basically, I'm trying to get the colour inversion part of the process away from the scanning software. I want to scan my negatives as positives (eq to raw files in a digital process) and then be able to mess with colour balance later. ColorPerfect is, as the name implies, perfect for this, but only runs on Mac/Windows.

Hey Fediverse: does anyone know of any (preferably FOSS) negative film inversion software that will run on ? I would like something similar to the wonderful ColorPerfect (colorperfect.com/) to help implement this workflow on Linux: benneh.net/techshit/vuescan-co

Boosts very welcome!

Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “In Session” album is always a huge favourite. So many great tracks! open.spotify.com/track/5Ky0KrI

I remember absolutely hating UML in university, little did I know that I'd be learning it again 18 years later! This is a decent tutorial: youtube.com/watch?v=UI6lqHOVHi and the Dia app on Linux seems like a good editor.

I'm curious. Does anyone else read scientific papers for pleasure? (Boosts wanted.)

Now I'm thinking about building a Gnome UI on top of the CLI tool. Don't know where to even start, but will research.

's time formatting is whack, by the way. The way to set a format is by writing your own representation of the timestamp "Jan 2 15:04:05 2006 MST". Why? Because:

Some progress. User-specifiable Month and Week ranges are now working.

I need to figure out a way to move all of my fonts from mac OS to Linux.

The Amstrad ALT-286 was the first computer in my family, we got it around 1991. While my father used it for word processing and spreadsheets, I mostly played games (especially SimCity and Civilization at the time) and tried to hack around the computer's limitations. I remember getting it to run Windows 3.11 "for Workgroups" even though it wasn't officially supported. computinghistory.org.uk/det/46

A reminder of why I think deleting old posts on social media is important: "I don’t think they have much value going back months and years. I never read through years of tweeting history! This only benefits your enemies, never your friends." alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2017-04-
