A reminder that the ⚔️ Merveilles Chess Club is a thing:

It'd really be super to have more than two members, so that we could maybe run some tournaments, or even play in some events as a team! Please join, all levels are welcome!

I'm half-way through this book and it's blowing my mind every couple of pages with the brilliance of the chess.

There's something magical about its aesthetic, too — cheap paper, cheap blurry printing, extremely lo-fi layout/typography, and yes: it's printed with flipped pages, so you read right-hand pages only, reach the end of the book, flip it over, and then read the second half.

Hey I'm going to be doing my first ever "live" set next month.

It's virtual and proceeds go to the National Suicide Hotline.

Unfortunately I need (want?) about $300USD worth of gear to perform the way I want to.

I'm not asking you for money because there are lots of people who deserve it way more than I do.

But my music is free and so if you could share it with people you think would enjoy it, and I get more downloads, it justifies me spending the $300USD+.

Day 70 of : More MapKit fun, adding locations to a map and starting to build UI to add notes for each. Getting more comfortable with going back and forth between UIKit and SwiftUI.

What I love about Merveilles is that even "drama" leads to thoughtful discussion and gets addressed in what feels like a productive manner. :merveilles: :tealheart:

It turned out that this is a “trailer” for a novel. I’m not usually into suspense/war novels but I suspect I will read this one!

Day 67 of : Challenge day for the CoreImage app I built yesterday. I'm not at all interested in messing around with CoreImage APIs at this point, so I will skip it for today!

Uh it seems like I forgot to post about a day somewhere? That last toot was Day 65, and this is Day 66 of : Added a bunch of other filters to this CoreImage filtering app.

I'm going to work on some code but in the meantime if someone is up for a quick chess game, I'll leave this here:

(First come first serve, after the game starts the link is good to spectate!)

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
