Pinned toot

Hey fellow tooters, do you know any people around here interested in these topics? I’d love to chat about them, I don’t know who to follow!

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

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

Boost is appreciated. :3

:boost_ok: Bandcamp is waiving its revenue share again this Friday, so artists will get their normal cut of any sales (music and merch) plus the fee that usually goes to Bandcamp. This is a good way to help your favorite musicians survive the pandemic - especially musicians of color, LGBTQ+ musicians, and disabled musicians!

Here are all the dates Bandcamp plans to do this in 2020:
August 7, 2020
September 4, 2020
October 2, 2020
November 6, 2020
December 4, 2020

Chers francophones, je me lance dans la création d'un podcast à propos d'#OpenBSD et plus globalement sur les logiciels libres, mes différents périples au travers des systèmes d'exploitation, environnement de bureau, langage de programmation etc... Je prévois aussi de réserver un temps pour répondre à des questions qui me seraient posées à l'avance.

J'avais prévu de le faire en anglais (j'ai déjà fait un épisode) mais je suis curieuse de savoir s'il y a un public pour une version française :)

Being an artist is the most anarchist thing one can do.

I'll tell you what art is! 

Whenever an artist says "this is art" about their own work.
There is *no* other authority.

Better still: Becoming an artist is as easy as saying "I'm an artist." You don't even have to repeat it three times in front of a mirror at the full moon!

It only takes the guts to say it, mean it and dealing with whatever is thrown at you after it.

Also, my very first PCB, and first time using KiCAD… 😁

That’s an orthogonal, low-profile keyboard I’m making with @Hiro

#PCB design, #electronics, #KiCAD: Does anyone know of a good, possibly video, lecture series covering basic and intermediate topics? paid is ok. boosts very welcome! #pcbdesign


I’m mind blown that in 1979, you could just ask Commodore for a full set of schematics and debug tools for their computers.
Thanks a *lot* for making this possible again, 40 years later, I’m really grateful that I can experience this. I’ve already been checking out the online docs for the Reform in anticipation of the projects I want to do with it. 😄

Gonna repost this thread off my birdsite acct because it MUST be shared.

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!

Thanks to everyone who helped and supported us to make this happen.

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 :)
