We spoke with the FSF, and we found an arrangement so we could have access to a somewhat reliable internet connection for the event, and so we'll be happy to give a keynote at the upcoming LibrePlanet, March 19 and 20!
@neauoire that would be cool! A whole uxn word processing suite.
I love the idea of simple markup-to-slides tools, but none of them that I've tried seem to work well
@slisne I don't think it will have fancy wordart, but maybe one large high-res uf3 font, and 2-bit graphics support, nes controller handlers.
@neauoire https://tiny.tilde.website/@pho4cexa/107142961384419122 was supposed to be a ludicrous shitpost
@neauoire make all your slideshows in Orca. Each slide is an Orca document. Even get to animate them and maybe some will make pretty good noises!
@neauoire when I saw someone post that suckless software, I was kind of expecting this to happen haha
@neauoire Out of curiosity, what are you doing for slide transitions? I've been curious about whether there was any screen scrolling support since I didn't see any in the device registers or any mention of the screen buffer being in main memory
@neauoire I went thru a period a while back where I tried to switch all my browser fonts to pixel fonts because the laptop the bought me for work has a low-res screen. there are loads and loads of monospace ones but I found it very difficult to find proportional ones with more than one size option.
@neauoire jackpot. I'll have to give this a shot. have you tried configuring a browser to prefer these and overriding whatever the site tells you to use?
@technomancy on plan 9, abaco and mothra both use pixel fonts, it's pretty much standard browsing experience for me :)
@neauoire my cross-stitch software ingested everything from int10h.org and I look forward to adding to its collection 😋
@email@example.com it's… pretty ugly actually, the letter spacing and kerning is awkward and the letterforms feel too, idk, wide
@akkartik I just went with a REALLY silly postscript-like language. I guess it's a bit more like turtle.
x,y MOVE, moves the drawing position
path.tga IMG, monochrome drawing
path.tga IMG2, 2bpp drawing
line TEXT, some text
@vertigo glad you think so! uxn has only 64kb of memory so I can't load the images in memory, I stream-draw directly from the tga files 🤦♀️
Does the k and f have a tiny bit too much space after it? Not sure the s have too much space before it?
Kerning is not an easy thing though. What you are doing is quite remarkable.
@dsfgs I'm using the Macintosh System 7 kerning at the moment. I'll write a couple of slides and correct the spacing that looks weird from that.
@neauoire Fun fact: The very first applications that I ran on the Kestrel-2 and the Kestrel-2DX were in fact slideshow programs. I used them to present the very computers I was using at the Silicon Valley Forth Interest Group meetings. 😏
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
