Pinned toot


Hello everyone!

My name is Clemens and I am a co-founder and creative director of Vienna-based collaborative hub/game studio Broken Rules, who is probably most known for a game called Old Man's Journey:

My current goal is to start building and contributing more towards FOSS.

"A different kind of world is not just possible; it is a crucial and
urgent necessity."

The convivialist manifest is a positive vision for a post-growth future where the quality of life isn't measured by economic growth, but the quality of our social relationships and of our relationship to nature.

I‘ve wasted so much time on raspberry pies and can‘t get a single freaking thing to work. I‘ve tried different projects, different setups, different OSes. Everytime I have to go off on some trial and error hunt for obscure errors researching for solutions for hours just to get the damn thing running.

Ideally, people would just borrow the books from the library. Alternatively, small, local bookshops should be the place to buy them.

Maybe I should just provide the titles and let people do their own search if they are interested?

Is there a good, extensive online book catalogue that isn't owned by Amazon?
If you have a reading list online, do you link the books anywhere?

I know little about the way peertube is growing but there seems to be a drastic difference in culture and content compared to Mastodon.
Or is this mainly a matter of choosing the right instance?

I was just about to open a peer tube account, but the landing page is a federated feed of soft porn, gamerZ, right wing pop culture and corona conspiracy theorists bullying random people in the streets.

"The richest 5% (whose average income is $100,000 per year) capture no less than 46% of global income. In other words, half of all our economic activity – all the mines, all the factories, all the power stations, all the shipping, and all of the ecological impact that’s associated with these things – is done to make rich people richer."

@rostiger Like this! At least, this is how you can do it on desktop. Icons are really not intuitive sometimes.

I'm failing to write a direct mesage on Mastodon. Have I turned blind or stupid? Possibly both.

It's that time of the year again: I'm looking for contract Web work, starting next month.

I've been building stuff for the Web since the mid-90s, and while I mostly work with Ruby, Rails, and JavaScript these days, I quickly find my feet in new languages and frameworks. I believe in listening, asking questions, and testing my code.

I would like to work with a friendly, inclusive org that aims to do good. If you have any leads, please hit me up! Boosts very welcome.

Also tested the grinder with almonds and sunflower seeds. Almonds were a bit too large, but managed to grind them eventually nonetheless.

Unfortunately the label had to go to get a uniform surface, but I‘m thinking of replacing it with my own.

It‘s finished! And it works! It spins so smoothly now, that it‘s just fun to whirl the crank.

@eviloatmeal Ah thanks for the heads up! I‘ll be careful in my first test runs.

Also we did the first ten prompts in a 30 minute sitting, so you can guess the quality that emerged.
