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.

Is there a way to automatically open gemini addresses in a browser that supports the protocol?
This is what currently prevents me the most from actually using gemini.

Not sure if I should be proud or ashamed that the case was built without power tools. Won’t go this route again, that’s for sure.

The most distant things human eyes can see are these four galaxies.

Messier 81, 8.5 million light years away. Sculptor, 11.4 million light years away. Centaurus A, 12.4 million light years away. And Messier 83, 14.7 million light years away.

Though you'd need sharp eyes to see these yourself, and skies which are both exceptionally dark and clear.

When light was leaving Messier 83, actual mastodons were still alive on Earth, the Sahara wasn't a desert, and cats didn't exist yet.

I guess I'm looking for a simple hosted static site cms?

They want to use square space and obvisouly I would like them to create a static page, but it's a hard sell to non-technical people, who just want their website up fast.

What would you reccommend to someone who has only rudimentary computer skills and wants to build a simple website?

I’ve finally finished my new mail setup with neomutt and it’s glorious. And it took only a week to configure, too!

@neauoire @rek Quick Grim Grains quesion: I thought ingredient pages had links to recipies containing the ingredient, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Am I remembering it wrong or were the links removed at some point?

Blender Foundation this year aired a 98min collection of short video messages from the community instead of a typical online conference, and it's diverse, intimate, inspiring and impressive.

I think for everyone in free software this is a fantastic insight to observe, listen and think long and hard about how and why blender succeeds in all these communities and fields, and what we can learn from it. And instead of looking for the zeitgeist-y "disruptive" strategic aspects, I think it's important to consider that they've been at it for ~20 years, however in contrast to many other similarly aged but more or less stagnant projects they've managed to make time really work for them.

So then, let's watch and learn. Kudos to them! -

Reading the New Yorker profile on Moxie Marlinspike (the creator of Signal) and found out he made a video zine a long time ago while sailing with friends called Hold Fast

Still haven't found the email client that works for me. Have been using Evolution, but it feels slow and bloated. Kinda sorry for dunking on it, but these icons are a mess!
