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.

Hey there, I'm Jess!

I'm mainly a traditional artist who dabbles in digital art. I love watercolour and coloured pencils but I'll use pretty much any art supply because new things are fun.

I also dabble in comic art and hope to get back to it properly someday!

While not arting I mostly play video games. You'll see a lot of ESO fanart here because it's my main MMO!

Playing with the thought of buying an old Nissan Cherry and rebuilding it to an electric car.

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.

Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.

This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.

Nobody should have to work for money more than 10 hours a week.

In fact, nobody should have to work for money at all to be able to sustain themselves in a healthy and dignified way.

City rant 

I returned from the mountain to the city and holy sh*t, why are there so many cars? Why do people leave their trash everywhere? Why is everything so cramped with stuff? This place makes me claustrophobic.

On the final stretch of developing Fortunae, the offline-first personal finance tool. I'm completely exhausted but I feel like this product is actually going somewhere.

I uploaded my first project to source hut! It's called relogen and it generates themes for @regolith by setting a random wallpaper from a folder and sampling it's colors using pywal.
Check it out here:

I spent way too much time on desktop vanities today, but it was just too compelling.
Here is my very first bash script in action. It generates @regolith themes from the wallpaper using pywal.
