Painted a griffon for an upcoming one-shot! I agonized over the feathers, but am pretty happy with how the pattern turned out

@a @henesy it's at https://github.com/driusan/fedi9 but it's undocumented, the design isn't very stable yet and I haven't included the (Go) httpsig signer I wrote yet because I haven't tested it. It also needs a patch I sent to the 9front list for libjson last week to fix the output of the '%J' verb for fmtprint otherwise json that goes into the objects cache will get corrupted.

I had an idea for how to deal with voting last night. So for after I get my 9front ActivityPub implementation working, how's my template for a site based on ActivityPub that's an homage to kuro5hin circa 2005 looking?

It's a little known fact that the Power Macintosh G4 Server (2003)'s status display can run arbitrary code, including this mini vMac install with System 6.

@kototama I did not use my head very much and got some lucky hits - game turned around really quickly in the last two turns

Played my first battletech game in four(?) years and for the first time locally - had an absolutely awesome time :)

Ok, so I have been playing with plan9 a little and this is where I am at.

Lost.

It’s going to take a good amount of time to learn what the heck is going on here.

I can drive rio ok, creating windows and running programs in them. The finer points of the system though are very much dark magic to me still.

It’s going to take a good bit of poking about too as I honestly find the documentation a little inaccessible at times.

Going to my first in-person game with strangers since probably 2018 - very excited and very nervous

I must not return to Common Lisp.
Common Lisp is the mind-killer.
Common Lisp is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face Common Lisp.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where Common Lisp has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...probably writing fennel or scheme or forth.

I have been collecting glass insulators for over 20 years. These were actually used around the world on telegraph, telephone, and electric power lines. The oldest I have is from the 1860s. They come in just about every color.

If you want to know more, feel free to ask, but also check out these websites¹².

Does everyone know about the awesome Old-Time Radio collection, which has literal years of audio of classic radio shows? Drama, Mystery, Comedy, and more. One of the crown jewels of the archive.

the harshest feedback I ever received during a playtest was from a high schooler who asked me "why would anyone make this"

this was over 10 years ago now and I still think about it

programming languages don't succeed because of their type systems but rather because of their hype systems
