Moving this to

I'm a NY-born Oakland resident who programs for game companies to survive. I teach Scratch to kids at our town's video game museum.

In my free time I used a lot, then , and now a lot of modern . I port things as a way to preserve ideas. I have a loving wife and 2 cats.


, uuuuh,

My recent coding marathon just caught up with me. I burned a three day weekend at both ends to prove to a prospective employer that I'm skilful, and now I'm really paying for it. 😞

money (-), help needed 

Hey, I'm a disabled queer person who doesn't have a stable source of income. I try to do emoji commissions when I can but I really haven't had the capacity to finish the commissions I have or take more on atm and I'm really running out of money to pay for food and bills. If you could help that would be really appreciated:
(thank you so much in advance)

Artist's bio:

Mew! Purrrrrrrrrrrr; purrrrrrrrrrrr. Chitter chitter, purrrrrr. Zzzzzzzzzz.

Apparently I tried building libvorbis from source with MacPorts ten or eleven years ago, and the build files just sort of sat in /opt/local/bin for an entire decade, until I tried to brew reinstall SDL_mixer from source and they sprung out of their casket like a digital fucking Nosferatu πŸ§› 😱

Sometimes, I'll realize I've got a song playing all day long, and have to figure out why.

"Oh, I ate a banana with oatmeal for breakfast and the bridge of I Would Walk 500 Miles sounds like 'banana, banana'"

It's just that sometimes, they're real earworms.

In the new apartment, for whatever reason, I've found myself rekindling an old habit of singing about the chores I'm doing. Now it's been two hours since I helped my wife pick art supplies up off the floor, and I can't get "Theme song to Charcoal Rescue Squad (2021)" out of my head.

It's not even a real song! Winamp doesn't care.

Is any one else's conscious experience scored by, like, a cringey Winamp playlist served up fresh by their subconscious mind?

This is a common, unspoken thing right? The brain jukebox?

I imagine it's part of the same sort of mental process I've got running on my idle cores that recommends puns and solves murder mysteries in their opening acts.

We have traversal! Feeling smooth.

The "puzzles" are nextβ€” subjects that the player performs operations on, like doors and terminals.

The puzzles excite me, because solving that particular problemβ€” transforming OOP JavaScript into a maintainable equivalent in Cβ€” will require a little more education.

It is such a relief, you know, when the rest of the world is reeling from major social upheaval and general distrust, to come here and watch people share their excitement about making their own text editors 😊

If anyone here is on macOS and uses the free LimeChat IRC client, I've got a Merveilles theme for ya.

You're looking at three solid hours of "what does this do?".

Oh shit, @pla got hit by a car..
He was one of the first person I've ever followed on the fedi. His unique mixture of of tech and bicyles will be missed 😭

He died doing what he loved.
Fuck cars.

Horus keeps flaking. Shamelessly! Remember when I got us tickets for that thing that one time? He flaked then, too. Sheesh.

(@theneko Curiosity got the best of me and I downloaded the Unity build of via the Internet Archive. It looks and plays great! I can't wait till the multiplayer's back.)

Just dug up a poster from when my friends and I ran a graphic design club at our frigid, engineer-laden polytechnic. I taped these up all over the place.

I was a witty little shit. But also I knew how to grab people's attention.

The GUI takes form! See how the window resize events are immediately processed! All the icons are in their proper place, relative to everything else.

Now, looks can be deceivingβ€” the actual game still isn't yet implemented. But the hardest part of the port is basically finished.

FYI @neauoire I just discovered my C4D trial expires tomorrow, so I'm exporting the latest version into various other formats as insurance against worst case scenarios πŸ™ƒ
