@neauoire I'm still 100% confident in the web stack. Please reach out if you folks need any sort of port support, sport.
...Wait. Ports! Shoot! I left Verreciel on the back burner a month ago, didn't I? I'll try and wrap that up this week 😅
the future of my games on Apple (post-Catalina) and what this means for art games in general
Hey Merveilles Town!
I just wanted to share that I'm launching my own newsletter: Errata Exist.
I'll be writing about things like software development and self improvement.
If that sounds interesting, you can subscribe to it here: https://buttondown.email/maxdeviant
Shout out to @ian for inspiring me through their newsletter!
@goldbuick this looks excellent
Youtube isn't interested in keeping videos forever. Or even for a long time. They'd rather not keep old videos at all.
New terms of service add a clause to terminate your access "if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable."
@flip it’s a fair d24, too, from the look of it. Good for choosing a random hour to do something

mixed media and generative adversarial networks
Here Vailles leverages a neural network trained on panicking rodents to juxtapose broad, earthen paint strokes with flecks of discarded plastic, to convey the desperation of late stage capitalism: bleak, myopic, and obsessed with unsustainable distraction.
"[The algorithm] arranges the flecks into endless lists of 'posts' and 'comments', which was the custom at the time," Vailles remarks.
Started training a bot that tries to analyze and identify hate-speech on Twitter.
A few things became quite apparent after only a few days:
1. There are huge networks of (seemingly) fake accounts that like and retweet each other's posts. Someone is operating this at a _massive_ scale.
2. Reporting and banning fake accounts seems futile. You're fighting a hydra that spawns new accounts quicker than one can report them.
3. I'm feeling sick to my stomach just browsing through the logs.

Nerilso G. Bocchi and Romeu C. Rocha-Filho, at the Federal University of São Carlos, have translated my reproduction of J. F. Hyde's spiraling Periodic Table into Portuguese, and made it into a
to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev's table. 🍾
And they did a super good job too! One of them has got SERIOUS vector graphics chops. It was probably a pain in the butt to do! I'm super impressed.
@neauoire aha got it!
@neauoire so we’re talking about programming orca to move the mouse around in sunvox?
Like I’m interested but probably very confused 😆
@neauoire What needs mouse picking? 👉🐁 I presume this is for the non-web-stack orca?
"So i just came out to my dad abt being #nb, and he said something really wise about names, i think.
He said “Gifts are not obligations. You give things to people, and you hope they like them. And your name was a gift from us to you. If it doesn’t work for you anymore, you’re not obligated to keep it.”
and i just thought maybe other people could use hearing something like that."
