Pinned toot

You will see me back again. I needed to retreat and I just didn't want to lie or make up excuses. I was scared, and needed to let you all know that I'm not abandoning you. I'm feeling much more myself after realzing that I wont' die within a year or something like that.

I'd like to make something out of this experience and find a way to create something that really expresses the genuine existential horror I felt during the ordeal. I'd like help too. If anyone wants to, please lets get to work

@thelibrarian Hey! It's really nice to read that! I wish you the best for the recovery and I'm still up if you wanna vent / talk about anything

I send you another big hug!

Everyone, I only now have seen your offers for help as I needed some time. It turns out that what was thought to be cancer is not, and that's good. It's a complicated matter - though I shouldn't die soon or from this event as long as I am treated.

I've only coped w/ death in solitude, & felt vulnerable. A group of people I know only in spirit and mutual respect. You proved me wrong and I am grateful to be here with you.

I know I had been around only a short while before I disappeared for a few weeks. I don't want to say whats going on I guess. Maybe some will think I'm seeking pity and the truth is I'm just afraid. I'm so fucking scared and I'm 30 and isn't this when grown ups are supposed to say something? A few years ago I asked my grandpa when he truly grew up. Aged 72 at the time, he sipped his coffee and said..."I didn't." I don't want to know the truth, anymore. I'm scared. I'm not ready to die. Cancer.

I broke up with a guy I was dating from work on Friday and he got fired today (unrelated things). Still, I feel guilty and... bad?


Working on a submission for the GBStudio&MiniJam30 .

gbstudio.dev

Started today - due tomorrow, but I wanted to share the software as it's really cool and actually makes hardware playable gameboy games in a very easy to use interface. Though, I did make the palette you use as an extension for Aseprite, it's the only thing on the website right now!

odd.codes

Use the extension if you do or are a !

(SNEAK PREVIEW of SOMETHING...)

@thelibrarian @neauoire basically, if you make something that can work without a server (standalone index.html that loads and presents local content) you have made something that can work in the p2p web

github.com/cblgh/monotome is my example of that idea

I'm having some issues, like it says others are there, but no one responds. @eel

I've got an idea - how about designing a game that's aimed at creating maximum frustration in the player?
My base idea would be to constantly change the rules of the game, without notice. I think playing this could be a carthartic experience.
Have something like this been done before?

@grafofilia Hey, I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to the community! I'm very new here myself, and don't have nearly the kudos that some of the folks here do - but I really love being here anyway, and I think you will too. I see you're into python, which is an easy way to get me talking for ages. Want to live code something together? I'm free in an hour or so if you want to! Something fun...like maybe something like AGRIPPA? Anyway, nice to meet you! Let me know. tinyurl.com/abookdead

@thelibrarian @ckipp @jrc03c Well it sounds like you're going after P2P web, so in that case I would suggest forgetting about python, and ruby and all that site building stuff.

Now, yes, you should make yourself a parser. Once you have that data, you make yourself a router, that will take the url query, and locate it in the parsed data.

Once you have connected query, with data, just display it in a nice day.

This is the flow of my wiki, maybe it can inspire you.

And I need to finish the test now! I've been doing work for rev.com for years, but not the subtitling for films and such. Just the audio transcription. I'll be back in a bit. Hopefully they give me the position, as it pays much better.

@ckipp 's gyul is a great start and that would be the most applicable working example I can think of. I just need to know where to begin. I don't want to copy the work, but try to do something inspired by its minimalist design on my own, with a lot of Borgesian flair in there. @neauoire @jrc03c

I've been experimenting with the dat:// protocol , but what I need to understand is where the roots of this tree need to be planted. Do I make a parser first? Do I make a template in regular HTML and then figure out how to reverse it down? I've been working on 2 parsers, one in Lua, one in Python. Both suck as of now. @neauoire Am I losing you yet?

Okay, well just with text and no links I have attempted to start from scratch about 3 times. The thing is - I'm in territory that I feel that no one has completely tried before and therefore, I don't know where to go to get advice. To give you something you are familiar with, I want to create a site with the most simple markup language possible - maybe from scratch. I want it to function like Paradise to a degree - but a real Library, filled with all the books and things I've collected@neauoire
