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.

Software is like recipes.

Facebook etc is like McDonalds: the recipes are designed to be cheap to produce and addictive so you keep coming back, but not good for YOU.

Commercial software is like restaurants: it varies wildly, and your favourite popular restaurant may disappear unexpectedly.

Open source is like home-cooked meals: you can know exactly what's in there and share the recipes freely. Some recipes are hard to pull off, but some are actually more convenient than going out to eat.

@jameschip It’s uncanny. Could be purely coincidence. But it could also be an ancient, tribal instinct: the insatiable thirst for... HORSEY RIDES!

I used the beautiful weather today to test-drive my new boat!

It is a Klepper T9 with a new hull.

If packed up those kajaks can be carried on a boat trailer in public transport.

I usually don't write or talk much about dreams, but tonight's was so specific I had the urge to document it:

Signal is down globally due to large influx of users. Finally people are jumping the train from WhatsApp to what I’ve been using/preaching for years and here I am considering moving to a decentralised option.
At this point I have to wonder if I’m really that far ahead or if I just really don’t want to stay in touch with most of the people in my address book.

I've been working a lot on the new Broken Rules game this week and can't show anything of it. I'm tired of secret development...

Does anyone know of any offline FOSS that creates image/mood boards from a directory of images?

I'm tired and depressed today. I think I'll go to bed and read a book.

What are your favorite resources to learn C? So far I've got some 1000 page manual, which is thorough, but not overly exciting.

Alright, I'm doing it. I'm learning C. I mean, how hard can it be, riiiiiiight?

I did it! Built a simple graphical text editor in 500 lines of ANSI C. Just added the missing mouse picking stuff, will move on find/replace things next.

This is what I'll be using from now on to work on my stuff :D

I've been looking for stats on the fediverse and came across this site:

It's fairly slow to load, but has extensive data.

I can't tell if @usercount is counting the total amount of accounts or just the ones on .social.

@changeling Please add me to Austria, Design, FLOSS, Free Software, Friendly People, Gamedev, Illustrators, Linux, Makers.
