Scavengers Reign, one of the best animated series I've seen in years, is now on Netflix. Absolutely worth a binge.

Screenshotting this post 👇🏻 in order to quote post it! I don’t know where people get the idea that quote posting = dunks, personally I feel that that opinion is just Twitter brain.

Every major social platform from Tumblr, to Facebook, to LinkedIn and more has the ability to natively quote post. This is because the primary use of such a feature is to amplify information w added context or to open a new line of discussion. Replies are used far more often for harassment but we don’t ban replies!

@taylorlorenz Agreed!

If dunking is a feared use of the feature, design the presentation of the quote post so that the quoted item is shown first, followed by the quoter’s response.

That would reduce the ability of the quoter to prime the way the reader initially views (and interprets) the quoted content, while working just fine as a fork or clarification of the original quoted post.

The one thing I notice about Las Vegas now is .. giant screens. Giant, enormous screens absolutely everywhere. Including that huge sphere!

@polygon @bburbank I just finished my first Christie novel (And Then There Were None), immediately followed by the directly-inspired The Decagon House Murders. Looking forward to digging more into the genre!

i have a really bad habit of polishing a turd until it gleams like japanese fake food, so i've decided to launch my new game studio's web site before i'm happy with it:

https://tomodashi.com

as i promised in an earlier post, i am documenting every step of the process of building a new game studio, and a new game at the same time.

i'll post at least once a week on the journal, and expand the site with game development tutorials in the coming weeks. 😅

oh and - for you nerds out there: the entire site is generated on-the-fly with handwritten shaitan-approved PHP from text files, using a vile markup language i invented on my own without asking an adult first. it also features an feed on the journal page, for those of you who find browsing profane

@vga256 looks good, subscribed to the feed!

driph,
@driph@mastodon.social avatar

@vga256 yeah it is! I need to start working on game dev side projects, looking at the playdate as a potential this year, would be a good excuse to play around with Pulp.

We had a Nintendo growing up, but in the mid 80s I was still deep into Atari computer games and BBS land.

genuinely missing the era of robust Etsy offerings as I need a door draft stopper, want something kinda cute like an interesting fabric or dachshund-shaped bean bag, and I knowww in 2012 I wouldn't have had to wade through all the Temu/dropship stuff

just swapped out the 8 year old scissors on one of my production macbook pro's... my gods is it a pleasure to type on again.

i forgot how silent and stiff the keys are supposed to be :D

best $10 upgrade i could have made to this aging beast

@driph@mastodon.social avatar

@vga256 huh! I’ve never even considered that as a thing I could do, in my head those mid era mbp keyboard were just a single unit thing, aside from the caps.

What’s the wear symptom on the scissors? Just crudded up over time?

One lousy group of kids so far tonight. We usually get tons!

Ugh, we're gonna have so much leftover candy. Any new groups that show up are getting fistfuls.

@vga256 I dunno, maybe its a post covid thing? Though we got a decent amount of traffic last year so that doesnt totally explain it.

Remain convinced that if we had a good non-GIMP Photoshop alternative on Linux, more people would move over. It’s those one or two big apps that are showstoppers.

@ernie 100%. For me, it’s the Adobe suite and SpamSieve.

as a 20 year mac owner, i don't give a damn about apple anymore. they aren't the same company they were in the mac vs pc era, and the poetic excitement is dead.

it gave me grim joy to see them launch a laptop with "space black" at a premium. this is literally the same move did 25 years ago with black tinted platemail armour 🤣

driph,
@driph@mastodon.social avatar

@vga256 yeah, I’m starting to feel the same. There’s less and less holding me to the platform, both hardware and software-wise.
