Hello all, I am an #indiedev #gamedev and #pixelart artist mostly, but I also do some traditional and other types of digital art.

I'm particularly interested in #scifi #cyberpunk genres, and themes around AI, identity, selfhood, authority, the illusions of consumerism, religion and capitalism, and workers rights and democracy.

But mostly I ignore all that and just do whatever #pixel_dailies tells me :P

reminder that your computer/phone works because there's a little crystal in a circuit in there being zapped with lightning to make it wiggle so the rest of the computer can keep time like it's a metronome

Someone managed to do a processor replacement in an iMac G4, bringing it to 2Ghz.

That's not quite as simple as it sounds, by the way.

I'm trying something new. An experiment, if you will.

Would you like to become an #OpenBSD port MAINTAINER but don't know where to start?
I have five ports ready to go. They are at the bottom of the link below. All you have to is add yourself as MAINTAINER, roll the directory into a tarball, and submit it to the ports@ mailing list.

Writing new ports can be tricky. Maintaining fully formed ports can be a nice way to learn how everything works and ease into things.

After many months of procrastination and false starts, I finally completed a first pass at a painting for one of our conference rooms at work (they’re all named after Star Wars characters because we are big nerds). The final product will be traditionally painted, likely with gouache and airbrush, but I’m going to put up a print of this first and see how it looks! #mastoart #creativetoots #wip #digitalart

BEN, READING FROM CHAT: what's the point of bullet bills being sentient? they're still fired like regular bullets.

Today's XKCD titled "Containers" is very good. Also the alt-text.

Onion based federation is now working with #pleroma on #freedombone. This means that it's now possible to follow users on "onion only" installs.

This type of federation is quite significant, because it means independence from the DNS and CA systems. It means that even if you don't control your local internet router or don't have money to spend on domain names you can still create a social network. It significantly reduces the complexity barrier to entry for running a home server.
