I'm playing with gemini today.

There's a gemini server also running at gemini://g.maddie.info/ now

Published a phlog post on my gopher server about my Deca Time app development today.

gopher://g.maddie.info/1/phlog

It's mostly a consolidation of things I've already posted, but I've added a bit of detail to it.

Hello fedi! I've been around for a bit but haven't done an introduction post.

I build stuff I find fun or think will be interesting/useful for others! I have a tendency to make small projects, usually to serve niche communities, or projects philosophically aligned to my beliefs.

Sometimes shitposting, sometimes serious tech, philosophy or politics.

Not a fan of capitalism, exploring anarchist philosophy as I develop my own views.

Open to any follows, please interact if you'd like, if we interact and you're interesting I'll likely follow.

Trans rights are human rights.

lewd cursed wtf 

@schratze Don’t look at her, look at me. Tits are temporary, the free software gnussy is forever.

Imagine an amusement park ride, where you boarded a train, and rode through a recreation of the tram ride from Half Life.

It would still be pretty cool if it were some kind of full motion cab, but it would be amazing if they recreated the entire ride physically.

I know this is unrealistic, but I wish it existed. I’m tired of boring Star Wars full motion rides.

How long until someone hacks a train system so that the automated PA system sneaks a meme? How would you feel if you were just commuting, and suddenly you hear:

“This train is inbound from Level 3 Dormitories to Sector C Test Labs and Control Facilities. If your intended destination is a high-security area beyond Sector C, you will need to return to the Central Transit Hub in Area 9 and board a high security train. If you have not yet submitted your identity to the retinal clearance system, you must report to Black Mesa Personnel for processing before you will be permitted into the high security branch of the transit system.”

I was asleep, and I woke up to Leo climbing up next to me. He meowed quietly, and very insistently pushed his way onto my pillow. I scooted over to share it with him, and we each got half.

He laid down, and I nuzzled my face into his fur, petting him gently. I quickly fell back asleep.

@liz found us about an hour later, both completely passed out, cuddled close, my hand still on top of him.

Stop using Bluetooth headphones

Audio was not supposed to be squiggled through the air.

Years of revisions and nobody can get a perfect signal.

Want to listen to music? We had a tool for that. It was called headphones.

“My headphones need to be charged” - statements dreamt up by the utterly deranged.

They have played us for absolute fools.

The sun is an eldritch horror.

Inconceivably old, will last for an equally inconceivable amount of time.

Effectively eternal from our perspective.

Looking at it directly will destroy your eyesight.

Unapproachable, at risk of complete immolation.

Incomprehensible and alien.

Sure, green terminals have a certain aesthetic.

However, have you considered: amber?

Strange New Worlds Episode 3, no plot spoilers 

The writing is excellent in this episode. The way the crew interacts, they have an amazing dynamic.

I’m really enjoying it.

What is your favorite pizza topping?

Leo found a box. He’s been in it for hours. It seems like a comfy box.

6-7 hours of compiling later, the tor browser nightly is running. :ameowbongo:

@liz @erosdiscordia @enot @Paradox @meganeko Mystery Babylon, you favorited the thread I was looking for!

Everyone tagged in this post, thank you so much for helping. I’m sorry if I missed anyone.

Show thread

Just a general thank you to everyone who helped me the last couple days, when I felt quite hopeless.

I would @ everyone, but it was multiple threads and I couldn’t find them all.

With help of the fediverse (and my wonderful partner @liz) I think I’ve got this code compiling. We’ll see tomorrow, but it’s been compiling all day with no more issues so far. I feel far less alone about doubting my abilities too.
