Mixed signals.

RETRO COMMUNITY, please retweet. If anybody can be in Houston this weekend there's a 'computer museum' that's liquidating everything they have. Almost everything is pre-Y2K including some DEC stuff and what looks like AS/400 equipment. Listing: facebook.com/marketplace/item/ @Foone

Just noticed it's likely less mysterious than I feared: USB activity (moving the mouse or pressing buttons on the keyboard) will wake the laptop up.

I wonder if that was always the case and the impact was lighter before (it went back to sleep faster), or that this wasn't the case before.

I feel bad for the good people that create the Muse Sequencer, muse-sequencer.github.io/ - not to be confused with MuseScore and the Muse Group...

Plotting using on via was broken. Added some more diagnostic logging (github.com/inkcut/inkcut/pull/) and proposed a fix to the package (github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/)

Popular webcomic "The Oatmeal" no longer asks people to follow them on #Facebook, #Twitter, #instagram etc. Here's their explanation as to why (contains minor swearing):

Just noticed the main GitHub org for mastodon is no longer github.com/tootsuite

It's a good move, but I'm also slightly sad to see the "tout de suite" pun disappear :D

oh my gods. they literally have no shame about this.

GitHub Support just straight up confirmed in an email that yes, they used all public GitHub code, for Codex/Copilot regardless of license.

The -based mechanisms ( solid.github.io/authentication ) sure seem complicated/convoluted though!

It *might* all be necessary/essential complexity to be able to meet the design goals, of course - but I'm not quite convinced yet. Getting a strong "If this is the answer, are we *sure* we're asking the right question?" vibe.

Checking out a bit.

I like how, for logging in and keeping track of ownership/rights, they separate identity (with ) and authentication (with ): this means in principle, you could trivially self-host your identity under your own domain (it is just a file), and use some external service for actually logging into stuff with that identity. Would that service go away or stop being trustworthy, you can switch to a different one without losing your identity.

"I was trying to recreate the Cairo pentagonal tiling and for whatever reason I ended up building it out of two-pentagon pieces connected along the short edge. That visually suggested some sort of butterfly..."

#Blender’s new asset browser basically turns it into a video game, it’s pretty much The Sims at this point. Drag and drop and done – this will make things a lot easier for 2D artists who use it as a base for paintovers. Mind-blowing. 🤯

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.
