one of the things i like about Anathem is that they call their historical singularity The Terrible Events

I've been working really hard the past couple of weeks building a new stats system for my web game Improbable Island.

It's a text adventure at, there's a lively roleplaying community, player-owned places (with a programming engine!), hundreds of pages of story and no ads/tracking/nastystuff. We've had problems getting new players 'cause the places we used to advertise are all going offline, so if y'all could help me out with a boost that'd be much appreciated

If you’re a Pinebook Pro user, we confirmed this evening that the Flathub version of #glimpse 0.2.0 works out-of-the-box on that machine. 🥳

The buildbot server we use as part of the Flathub publish process creates ARM64 and AARCH64 builds automatically to future-proof our project.

PSA: moleskines are bullshit btw, they make a big deal but the paper is garbage. for the same price you can get a rhodia with clairefontaine paper that's smooth as silk, or if you like a spiral binding, maruman makes A5s with really beautiful paper that cost like a third of what a moleskine will run you

along the way i found this totally decent cover

Which of these messaging services do you actively use?

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

For the record, Accelerando was a cautionary tale.
