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!

@feoh Thank you for the very kind words! This means so much to me. I do not have a Patreon but I do have a PayPal link in my bio. :)

@JPEG The latest Mast for update is positively *incredible* ! Thank you so much for all the effort you clearly poured into this. It really shows! Have you considered a Patreon or something for ongoing development? I'd gladly chip in.

HEY ARTISTS and general people who are looking for creative opportunities -->

i'm sharing what might be my life's work, which is a spreadsheet of almost 400 places that hold regular open calls for residencies, shows, and funding

y'all deserve this and we gotta take care of each other. apply to things and get that support:

Here’s a radical idea: Whether you’re communist, capitalist or anarchist, Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative, kindness is everything.

I am just in continual awe at the depth of No Man's Sky: Next and how well it all hangs together. Spent a couple hours with it just now and it's eminently satisfying :)

What if capitalism is only a part of the problem, and in order to actually move the needle on wealth disparity you actually need to eliminate the idea of the nation state as well?

Now that I'm finally finished my 100 days of course I can judiciously choose to spend some time on again and I've gotta say - haters, come back and take another look at No Man's Sky. If the idea of wandering around a gorgeously rendereed MASSIVE universe exploring, crafting, building, trading and fighting (if that's your thing :) then you MUST try the Next update of this game.

I've put 14hrs in thus far and am not even anywhere close to being tired of it.

owners of Mastodon, if you live in a place that HAS winter (e.g. it gets cold - say below 40F) - do your dogs go a little bonkers / manic when the cold weather sets in?

Mastodon sometimes sends me along notifies that people are saying the equivalent of "Here is Jason's account on mastodon but he almost never posts, he posts on twitter but twitter badddddd" across the month. Sorry about that, I go where the mass audience is.

If you're exclusively here, let me suggest my podcast, "Jason Scott Talks His Way Out of It" patreon.com/textfiles - monetary support is encouraged but not required. I'm at 61 episodes and growing weekly.

@feoh Interesting.. @textfiles just released an episode about raytracing featuring POV-RAY that I listened to last night.

For any other nerds out there - if you haven't seen the Youtube video on the Commander X16 it's one seriously inspirational piece of engineering and a must see for 8 bit fans :) youtube.com/watch?v=sg-6Cjzzg8

@pagetable Just found out about the Commander X16 and am in awe of this whole idea. Just curious - did you folks ever come to a decision around which sound subsystem you'd use?

Just occurred to me today that you younger folks who have the benefit of awesome tools like might not even know that POV-RAY exists.

Pretty amazing what people are doing with this stately old piece of code these days. Check out the hall of fame, I think you'll find an image or two to be impressed by!

Many years ago, when computers were crawling, embryonic half formed things compared to what we use today, this thing was AMAZING and let anyone ray trace. It was *empowering*.

That's a very awesome article talking about reCAPTCHA and its toxic behavior.

And not only that, it also shows various alternatives and ways to get the same result without selling your users to Google.

Flask and sqlalchemy in continue to impress me. They make writing REST apis practically effortless.

Friday before vacation and my brain is like BZZZZZZZZZZT COMPUTER SAYS NO.
