Greetings cybre.space denizens! I ran my own instance for a while until it ate itself :) In that time I saw that some of the most interesting denizens of the Fediverse originated from this community! I love chatting about just about anything but especially , retro-computing, games, and science fiction, or Freemasonry. I build clouds by day and chase bright shiny things by night :) I look forward to engaging with you all!

Hey everybody! The Internet Archive is doubling your contributions today. So for all of you anarchist anti-capitalist fight the power types, *THIS* is the moment to show your support in a meaningful way :)

For any non hardcore fans like me in the mix, humblebundle.com and gog.com are doing give-aways right now. LEGO Hobbit and Full Throttle: Remaster respectively :)

What is “beautiful code”?
Is there such a thing?
Is it important that code be “beautiful”?
Are you confusing the word “beauty” with something else?

@mkb @feoh @wraidd My guiding rule to live by here: don't use figurative language and abstractions unless it's necessary. I searched online is my go-to phrasing.

Also, Cryptpad is a great GDocs substitute that doesn't come with its own ecosystem of other tools like Nextcloud does.

Re-reading ov=r your toots to make shure there's no spelling errors is a fool's errand.

hivemind: does anyone remember the name of the artists who did that project extracting tantalum and other elements from ewaste to make weird spacey looking crystal sculptures? I know it's a duo, I know they're Belgian or Dutch maybe, and I always forget their fucking name.

#KDE_Frameworks 5.53 is out. In this version we fixed the (ironic) crash in KCrash, added KWayland virtual desktop protocol, and improved the Baloo indexing engine amongst many other fixes and tweaks. Full release notes here:

A #HyperText includes more kinds of contents integrated as interconnected documents.

So I think we should expect more than text browsers from the modern Web.

But you shouldn't need #JavaScript to see a video online. Or to control an audio stream. Or to read an article online.

This is a snap from some location spotting I did a few weeks back and I keep getting back to it. I don't know if it's because I truly enjoy it for being a snap or because I know I could do better next time around. Regardless, enjoy!

A newsflash for the Ubergeeks in the crowd: Other people are most emphatically NOT you! They have different needs than you, they value different things from you, and they might make different tool choices than you, AND THAT IS BOTH ACCEPTABLE AND GOOD. Please do educate them as to why your way might be better, but DO NOT judge them as being less than worthy, for you are full of crap and need to check yourselves whether you realize it or not.

That's an interesting point. I guess I haven't really encountered much disdain for selfies, but then I am in fact a cis-het man so it's possible I have blinders on that keep me from seeing it.

I think selfies are beautiful and I enjoy seeing them. I don't tend to take many of myself because I don't particularly think I'm all that interesting to look at, at least fully clothed. I'm rather proud of some of my ink though :)

Our poor rescue dog is having another nightmare. Our trainer says it's a result of the traume she suffered while she was on the street, and that letting her sleep through it helps her heal. I just don't understand people. How can you look at a face like this and kick her out into the cold?

RT @JeanLeggett@twitter.com: TORONTO GAME DEVS

Urgent request.

There's a delegation of high school students coming from Mexico Dec 10-14 who are meant to be visiting game studios in Toronto. We're still looking for 2 more indie or AAA studios for them to visit.

Just need 2-3 hours of your time. Pls RT.

Man, if you're a card carrying nerd like I am, there's nothing quite like the feeling of wielding a carefully tuned and configured UNIX prompt in service of building something beautiful. Bash as two handed vorpal sword of infinite sharpness and power :)
