- electronic music, chiptune
- VJing, live digital performances
- indie video games
- demoscene
- hardware hack (softcore cpus, gpus…)
- programming language design
- operating system design
- drawing, painting

I probably forgot some of my interests there, but it’s a start!

Boost is appreciated. :3

Hey! Congrats on the Reform campain!

Just a few things that are unclear to me from the text:
- it’s stated once that the bottom part of the case is either aluminum or acrylic, is the acrylic bottom only for the DIY kit?
- What happens if I order a wifi card with the DIY kit? Do I also get antenas? Are they mounted in the screen case?

Thanks again for this really outstanding project!!! ❤️ I will definitely buy one!

Watching Revision reminded me that the things I love to program the most are useless graphics and sound things… and for some reason, these are the things I make the least often… 😔

this past weekend at the Revision 2020 demoparty, my partners in crime from RAZOR 1911 released a mesmerizing beautiful 4096 bytes intro, please take a moment to look at the beauty of mathematics and realtime computer graphics :)

disabled people for years, decades, whatever: hey since there's this internet thing, do you think you could make it more possible to participate in X without physically being there?

I should participate to but like every time I’m doing a game jam, I doubt my ability to make anything… This is exhausting… 😩

google is terrified of the AGPL and it's hilarious

"The license places restrictions on software used over a network which are extremely difficult for Google to comply with. Using AGPL software requires that anything it links to must also be licensed under the AGPL. Even if you think you aren’t linking to anything important, it still presents a huge risk to Google because of how integrated much of our code is."

Pango (indirectly) removed support for old bitmap fonts formats by switching from Freetype to HarfBuzz. 😭

I’ve been playing irish/folk music almost exclusively these last few weeks.

Today I took a break from that and played all the classical tunes I learned over the years from my cello lessons. I’m exhausted now… 😆

Neoliberal Universal Basic Income (UBI):

- Give folks X amount a month
- Remove the social safety net (free healthcare, etc.) “because now there’s UBI”

Progressive Universal Basic Income (UBI):

- Pay everyone a living wage
- Also keep the social safety net
