Pinned toot

I'm a web developer by trade. I tinker with and other electronics. I've been known to draw, paint, sew, cook, bake and take photographs. I'm currently trying to understand how modular synths work.

Interesting to see something that looks like a pixel-based texture editor in this Switch app.

Found in the announcement video for Game Builder Garage:

Hummingbird drawing for an early Mother’s Day card. My partner is a mother, so she gets a gift from me. This year the gift is cherries that arrived early. (she’s delighted).

I changed my site over to use the 100 Rabbits C-based wiki builder. Now the whole thing builds in 0.27s. Yes, you read that right, about a quarter of a second!

I have lots in mind to improve with my site, but this new wiki/structure is a joy to write content within.

Planted vegetables in pots today: 2 kinds of cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, early blooming hot pepper, jalapeño, basil ...and flowers:: calibrachoa, pentas, purslane, 🌶🍅🌱🌸🌺🌼

I forgot to mention that several of Cliff Martinez's scores (including this one) are available for direct/free download from his website - lower down on this page:

It also has one of my favorite actors in it, Armin Mueller-Stahl. I wonder if I’ve seen it in theaters, this would have been when I was a senior in HS. :thinking_face:

TIL, Cliff Martinez scored an older Soderbergh movie "Kafka", released in ’91. And the sound track is chock full of hammered dulcimer. This is an incredible number of my interests combined in one place.

Being new to sound synthesis, I'm entertained by the most minor of creations. 2OSC/d, SEQ16, LFO, Waspfilter

Someone posted a message on tumblr that included a nate dot com email address, and now tumblr thinks I’m being mentioned with each re-share. I’m getting email notifications for each.

Biggest trick is figuring out how to cook in a way that’s compatible with Mindy’s preferences. I’m up for the challenge.

My cholesterol numbers are up. I was able to lower them with diet changes before. I’m going vegan now, for a number of reasons, not just health.

Hello Lurkers, it’s time for a brief #introduction. I am raphaël, born in montpellier, studied art in brussels, living in paris. I usually write small systems with code or physical objects, that eventually become instruments, tools, or less functional things. I love cooking without cookbooks and I usually write code the same way. I am a free software user and enthusiast. I teach art and design in various schools and during workshops. I am part of @velvetyne and I am currently (04/2021) focused on #sound and #CSS as a #livecoding language, and I still maintain lots of tiny tools that I should list somewhere at some point. Procrastination is part of my creative process and I kind of handle it now. I have a post-punk band called zone and a debian computer called jardin.

Rewrote the 100R website as an extremely simple wiki(200 lines of C89) with redlinks, templating and includes support.

Anyone interested in creating a static wiki, and learning a bit of C at the same time, might be interested in forking it to build their own wiki.

Lemme know if you have any question~

I'm excited to learn that this exhibit "AMYGDALA" is available to me locally at Georgia Tech this month. I'll report back with any observations, but meanwhile this video does a nice job of summarizing.

although this decorative bird was one of the first things I tried printing. n.b. the model was found on thingverse, someone's attempt to mimic the Eames bird sculpture.

After starting to use a 3D printer, we find our selves asking "can a 3D printer solve this?" quite frequently. If so, I add it to a list.

What's surprising is that the list seems to be all feet 🦶🏼 so far.

- feet for dining chairs
- replace missing foot for juicer
- fix porch chair foot
- tomato cage stilts
- basil planter feet
