Why have people been posting 4 digit numbers with no context? Really unnerving.

Walked by the Woodworking School on Gabriola, they have some interesting structures.

I honestly think the problem with learning to program is the attitude of what programming is for.

Instead of another tool to think with, to create and explore with, it is simply a skillset needed for a job in technology.

How can people ever enjoy computing when all the programming jobs are so boring? Or when the operating system itself is hostile to making programs?

Or even more pathetically, getting told that you are wasting your time if they are not learning C, C++, or Java.

Added a visual guide(pink box) around the rectangle tool, and made it so tracing shapes from the bottom-right toward the top-left worked properly.

When you don’t create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. Your tastes only narrow and exclude people. so create.

@eris what's the name of that custom APL distro from that eccentric guy who has a yellow website?

We fled from the strong weather yesterday, I'm glad we found a good spot, it's blowing out there.

speaking of pong (?):

my proposal for POÑG, a large-scale digital videogame with logic provided by human operators manipulating electrical switches, was (again) not accepted for this art grant for "young creators" in mexico.
i guess they mean something else when having a category for "new technologies" 😅😂

i feel-think that if it wasn't for merveilles, i would have decided by now that i'm "out of my mind" for trying to bring that project (and adjacent ones) to life (?) :merveilles:
