@thelibrarian everything you see here is googled and thoroughly trial and errorred. :D But it's sooo satisfying!

I look forward to seeing what you make!

Has anyone watched the Social Dilemma on Netflix? It's got many high level social media employees, telling you what their companies do with users data. To most people on Mastodon, this is well-known already; most users are likely conscious about their data just by virtue of being here already.

Still, how do you get, say, your girlfriend, or daughter, who are just average Americans not inside a programmers bubble, to give a shit about their privacy?

I don't want to be the lecturing dad... 〽️

I have the majority written in markdown, but it's my first technical book so I don't know how to design this thing in a way that it can be translated into pdf, epub, print, html, what have you.

Ive looked into magicbook and mdbook, I've used scrivener for planning, github for wiki, and I just can't do it in word. It's not conducive to code.

Any suggestions would be great. People are wanting it and suggesting I start a kickstarter but I can until I'm confident in the presentation.

I'm writing a technical book for and I Am aiming to make it as close to a holy text as possible. All you could ever need for reference, and many games that are built from scratch. A chapter on history of fantasy consoles and a comprehensive, robust series of modules that can be used in any project. I've been at it for a year but its in so many pieces that I need to find a platform or style to begin compiling it all.

What should I write it in?

My favorite song on the album is Laser Life, and if I ever made a movie, this would be the opening song.

If I had to recommend one song on the album for you to listen to though, it's track 4, Camouflage, Camouflage. The lyrics are pure chaotic poetry, and especially during the vocal solo, are guaranteed to induce some chills.

In case you are wondering, both singers are male, a fact I didn't know for the first few months I knew of their music.

Share the album that you identify most personally with. To be honest with you, this is difficult for me to do - as I have this feeling of ownership over it because of how much it means to me, and how few people have ever liked the songs on it that I've shared with them.

The Blood Brothers are the reason I fell in love with hardcore, and heavily inspired my own music at the time. I saw them perform on their final tour at the Black Cat in DC, and it was perfect.

Know that if something happens to us at sea, that we have left this world without regrets, we had had the opportunity of being surrounded with amazing and kind people, that we've had the incredible chance of seeing more than we had ever hoped, and that we wish that our death will not discourage anyone to take on such an adventure for it's not about the length of life but how it is spent.

A week on from my first mushroom experience I'm still feeling good.

I even have felt urges to do things proactively which has not happened in a long time. It never even really happened when I was on SSRIs.

I think that I will write about the experience at length in the near future.

Any or people in town should check out and bookmark my new and improved Pico-8 API!

I'm still fixing it up, but you can read the short blog post I made at the BBS, lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=38289.

Thanks all!

I'm looking for some suggestions for small LCD/OLED/LED screens to make a -8 handheld. Planning on using a to run it. A while back, I managed to get a kernel going that boots straight into the software.

Where do the makers here buy their equipment? I usually go with Adafruit, but I'm trying to look at other channels.

Anyone out there in , , or especially - an opportunity beckons.

I wish to give 1 of you unfettered access to all books, textbooks, and audiobooks you can imagine.

ALL can eventually join, but they will have to pass a test not administered by me. That happens only once or twice a month, I believe on the last friday.

If you are interested in hearing more, just dm me the name of the story/tv show/film/book/game that scared you as a child.

I'll be in touch!

Hey y’all I'm working on this crowdfunding video for our portable computer project (soon to have LoRa) called the Ark. It's for our crowdsupply campaign and I’d like to know what y’all think I should include in the video vimeo.com/372980954

I was thinking maybe a voice over describing things but I can't do it with my voice.

boosts and suggestions highly appreciated <3

@somnius @neauoire Well, what would be a good platform to make a talk page on so this could have a more organized discussion? Any suggestions? Something like Trello? (I've never used it, but I think it's for stuff like this.)

I don't know how many people are actually members of our town, but I think there's enough where it would be manageable as long as it was kept small. If everyone in the town, came and they each get a plus one - what kind of numbers would we be looking at?

I envision this as a actual temporary settlement, where the carpenters among us gather early and construct temporary 'buildings' and a square! I have people with property in the states that would likely be on board, but that's just one idea.

Has Merveilles as a whole ever considered making our virtual world into a real one for a few days? I just thought how absolutely lifechanging an event like that would be for me. I'm so enthralled with the work of nearly every human being in this community, it feels like a Paris in the 20's type situation.

I move to begin talks on organizing "Merveilles Faire" ~ To Build Merveilles ~ as a festival, that could last a few days, and we can all meet!
