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:
oldmansjourney.com/

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

For some reason I can't rsync data that amounts to 118GB onto a 512GB SDCard because rsync claims there is no space left. When I check the SDCard, there is only the 118GB taken. Any ideas what could cause this?

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Two days thousands of photos later I managed to organise everything in folder structured albums and trim the library by roughly two thirds.

Going through each picture, scanning exif data hunting for creation dates, trying to bring structure to my own past.

I gained a strange feeling of repect for each image living on my harddrive as a file.

I loved this bike and spend quite some time modding it. But the frame always was a bit too small and I got problems with my knees, so I had to let it go.

I re-visited the place in 2016. It hasn't changed much, except for the people who live there.

The house was over 200 years old and said to be haunted by the count that had lived there, who died with his wife in a tragic accident.

The attic was four stories high and filled with old crates, traps and flags.

There was an old linden tree in the yard about the same height as the house.

Nearby was a dried river bed besides an old stone ruin. The river bed led into the forest with caves in one direction and into a beautiful cold river in the other.

I remember this time fondly.

I'm disentangling myself from the Apple ecosystem since a few months now. One of the biggest steps is my iCloud photo library.
It's a good opportunity for a data hoarding detox as well as going through ancient photos.

So it turns out even though I haven't started my Kindle in years (it doesn't even have access to the wifi) it's still on the latest firmware version for some reason, which means it can't be jailbroken, currently.
I guess I'll go down the convert epub to mobi path then... Thanks @cblgh for the Calibre hint!

Thanks for the recommendations everyone, will check them out. Honestly I haven't touched the thing in years and I don't even know what model it is. Nowadays I don't have an AMZN account anymore and don't want to move back into this ecosystem.

I don’t know why German tends to have synonyms that are completely unrelated to the original word, but they are still very specific.
A noogy is a ‘head nut’. A slap in the face is an ‘ear fig’.

I’m thinking of this because I have been trying to sell them to my kid, but he never seems to want any (even though they are of the freshest kind). :/

Has anyone here experience with rooting or jailbraking a kindle? Is there a better alternative os for it that allows me to read epub files? Boosts appreciated!

@smerp Uou probably get this a lot, but the fact that your drawings are done by hand is pretty mind blowing. I enjoy your work, thank you for sharing it.

Reminder: Springer has released a lot of digital textbooks for free in the last few months, and their special offer is ending on July 31st. There is no need to sign up to download the PDF and ePub files.

This lovely page has the full list of available titles: hnarayanan.github.io/springer-

It was fun to come up with, but of course I didn’t consider the consequences: he wants another one this year. And it needs to be longer, more challenging and better in every way obviously. D:

Added a new project to Anchors, a treasure hunt I created for my son's 6th birthday:

I've updated my dictionary. It now features a collapsible menu, 100 Rabbits theme support, the alternate linja pona glyph font, buttons to toggle glyphs, words and definition on or off, and various other improvements.
