I'm not sure if it'll be helpful to folks, but I posted the Godot PlayerPrefs component I use for my FOSS game as a separate repo, today.

It is intentionally the simplest design that met my requirements for a persistent player preferences stash. I use it for things like storing things like window configuration and difficulty settings. It's open ended enough to stash a lot in there, though, like player save data probably.

Feel free to use it or just look and see what it does. It's painfully simple. Hope you enjoy.

I repackaged one of my twine experiences for itch.io, today. Trying to get in the habit of "finishing" things.

This is a really short experience and will probably only be interesting for a handful of people.

It might give you the feels. It might bore you. YMMV.

An of sorts!

Hi! I am VOLTUR. I'm a hacker and maker.

... I don't know what to put here anymore. I like things and talk about them. Sometimes I don't like things and I talk about them. Sometimes I don't talk about them.

Sometimes I make things and I talk about it. Or like I talk about how I would make things better.

I don't know. I'm not a brand.

This introduction is not my best.

So anyway, welcome to the party.

There's still work to do and there's still fun to have, so let's get to it!

Probably time for a good reminder to use the Content Warning feature for stuff

DrChrono is looking for a Product Manager to help lead the Telehealth team (fully remote, US-based): evercommerce.wd1.myworkdayjobs

(There are some other jobs listed there too, but this is the one I was asked to share. :) :boost_ok:

man, a lot of these job postings sure do ask for a lot of arcane technical skill while not offering much compensation in return

Wondering about one thing.
When you have a job during the week, do you play games after your day work? I'm curious.

Feel free to boost!

Do you know any good transcribers looking for work?

I've finally begun transcribing the one of my podcasts which has been lacking that form of accessibility. Now you can read along with that time I showed Gila 1992's "Sneakers."

modern.technology/watches/tran

I'd love to have more of these done, and we're slowly working on them in our rare bits of spare time, but we're never going to get through the backlog without some help.

I'm not looking for AI transcription; I have bots too. I know about the huge faceless sites and services, but I'd vastly prefer to pass the work to an individual human person from the small-business/freelance world if at all possible.

I don't have a massive budget (it's a non-commercial free-content pod I fund totally out of my pocket) but I want to pay a fair price. I can supply a bot-generated first draft to work from.

DMs open!

I would like to (dis)prove something my transphobic father said.
#transgender people, did you choose a name that’s a diminutive of or sounds like your deadname?
Preferably boost for a larger sample size.

One of the things I like about is how many cast/crew have multiple roles through time and series. It really creates this idea of everything being a familial celebration of creative expression.

🐪 oh wow we have camel emoji? camels are freaking awesome.

🐄 AND COWS?!

@TQ Specter is so freaking good! I would buy this album.

1994 #AlbumBowl CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

Show thread

yeah the top 3 in the top 2 places (lmao) in are REALLY FREAKING GOOD ™️

@stephan track Rise has kind of got deep summer vibes for me.

@iloth track Se llama el fediverso! is just next level good. When I heard that, I thought "Yeah, it's this one." I stopped what I was doing and played it for my wife.

@controlfreak track Cursed(Suffering) has industrial/goth club staple written all over it.

But the wild thing is that literally every single track submitted is good.

@eivind and @specter telling me to "watch the bees" is exactly what I needed to hear today. So grateful for these songs.

Well, fediverse. As my mom would say: I love you endlessly.

VOLTUR :trekbadgetng: boosted

I want to thank both @Wetdryvac and @controlfreak for their entries to and representing hackers.town/NewCyberia.

Awesome work, both of you!

lol I just did a search for "phones with removable batteries" and the first few hits were "phones for seniors" and I feel attacked lmao

I guess it's time to find out if my windows dll injection software will work properly under wine or if i'll have to take a different strategy to get the symbol addresses for loadlibrary... I think it will work, but I might have to play a little dirty

Seriously, this has so much good music it's humbling!
