i need a #penpal. i want to typeset a letter with latex, print it, do some letter-locking and send it across ocean. i'm serious, *please write to me* if you are interested.

i like talking about mathematical logic, poetry, modal music, unix-like systems. i also love telling and listening stories.

I miss Church of Girl radio. It was an online radio station that broadcast only women artists or women-led bands. They had great taste in their selection, or maybe music was better at that time.

The project was abandoned ten or so years ago due to a lack of advertisers, I believe.

It seems like I won’t be able to go back to Japan this year, either. Their entry conditions are unacceptable.

Hi #devs in #tech!
We're thinking about the best way to export/import #PeerTube account/chain data from one instance to another.

Do you know of any export protocols or conventions?

I didn't make a promo poster because I'm a big fat retard but today is the Minecraft stream! I've rented a server that will be up 24/7 and you are all invited! Shoot me a DM or a reply and I'll send you the server info! Would love to have as many people in there as possible.

If you notice me replying to you with some stupid shit, there will be two reasons for that: One, that I am stupid and that’s all I’m good for; and two, that I’m reading the TL backwards in time. So, by the time I provide you with, say, a solution to a problem, you most likely have already tried it and discarded.

"If we had met five years ago, you wouldn't have found a more staunch defender of the newspaper industry than me. ... And then I wrote some stories that made me realize how sadly misplaced my bliss had been. The reason I'd enjoyed such smooth sailing for so long hadn't been, as I'd assumed, because I was careful and diligent and good at my job. ... The truth was that, in all those years, I hadn't written anything important enough suppress."

—Gary Webb

So, did your instance stop federating about 15 hours ago and is just now slowly going back to normal, or was it just me?

I have only one political principle: I believe in the unity and solidarity of the working class.

Given the sad news about Bandcamp, I decided to bid it farewell by listening to my favourite band there, Rachel’s, and also Rachel Grimes, and awesome pianist and composer.

If Pepper&Carrot was a TV Show, what optimal lenght for an episode? Target audience? Type of stories? 2D or 3D?
I just had a meeting with a studio and we are curious to know your opinion. Thanks for the help 😻

I was thinking that Pleasantville was one of the best movies of this millennium, when it dawned on me that I had watched it in cinemas (twice) in 1999.

Listen, piracy is a myth.

I used to download a lot of stuff in the past, when I did not have any money. But as soon as I got a little bit of money, I ended buying most of the stuff I pirated in the past.

I actually did buy all of the fighting games I used to play illegally in the past. I bought many old games I played illegally in the past. I bought actual ROMs legaly from SEGA from games I actually like. I even bought Unreal games and even the very first Rayman on GOG. Even though I actually torrented those in the past and had them on my HDD. Just to say that I actually have a legal copy of them.

Because I love these games.

DRMs don't solve anything. Sending people to prison just for raping your game console won't solve anything either. People will still jailbreak your hardware and break your DRMs. And the worst part is that the most affected people is always the legal consumers, because those are always the ones that have issues with the DRM while people pirating this content can access it for free without problems.

Besides, if someone does not have the money, they won't spend any money on it anyways.

You can snort anything with a can-do attitude

I will never cease to be amazed by people who can draw. Whenever I watch someone do it, I feel like some kind of magic is unfolding in front of my eyes. It fills me with wonder.

Then again, I’m amazed by people who can tie their own shoelaces in what appears to be one swift motion. I still do it counting the steps to this day. Each shoe takes me half a minute to tie.
