Chief Emoji Officer on is-a.cat instance

Too chaotic for a paladin

Amateur artist and junior IT administrator. Mostly self-trained in chaotic and often destructive ways. Opponent of mainstream social media and nasty digital surveillance, wanna-be cypherpunk. Linux user since 2013. Fully degoogled since December 2019. Fully BigTech-free since March 2024.
Synesthete. That weird freak who sometimes uses Daedric alphabet. Even weirder freak who use bare IP address instead of some server name.
Cryptography is my only religion - does Church of Wael look for new members?
In my free time I draw or write stories, first of all for my fun.

I publish my works under CC BY-SA 4.0 license.

Writing here in English/Polish.

So I had few photos of this #bird - not mine, found or received on family chat group. With notes saying it's called Ringed Plower.

[loud screaming and all possum memes]

I try to create #account on Polish site for publishing stories. Tried my Proton, Tuta and Disroot #email addresses and every time I get #registration error like "Use another email account, we don't trust this".
What. The. Hell?!?

I guess using Simplelogin alias wouldn't work too.

hi !

just wanted to let you know that art posts as a whole will slow down, as its starting to take a toll on my mental health to keep trying to post things everyday

it was between this or taking a break, and I honestly prefer this over that

sorry for the inconvenience

@madargon@is-a.cat avatar

@anubiarts it's okay. It's impossible to keep daily frequency long-term :ablobcatheartsqueeze:

Huh, but in the past it worked both ways?

Inspired by #PrivacyBadger logo. I want to draw it in slightly different style but failed during working on this :/ At least I kept a bit of Privacy Badger vibe.

My avatar be like: "Woah, where did this come from? What the heck is it? It's so round and green"

@madargon@is-a.cat avatar

@volpeon Few years ago I had fanart of some fantasy book character as phone wallpaper. And he was licking his mouth looking at point where Protonmail icon was. It looked like he wanted to eat Protonmail app :blobcatnomtomato:​

@interfluidity@zirk.us avatar

the practice many browsers have adopted of truncating URLs in the address bar to the hostname is emblematic of the decline and commercially driven infantilization of the web.

understanding URLs — their roles and the ways and whys of how they are constructed — was an elementary skill of the original view-source web.

hiding complete URLs encourages people to become ignorant consumers of mysterious information services, rather than informed participants in a public forum.

@madargon@is-a.cat avatar

@interfluidity and at the same time they constantly warn us about phishing, malaware, social engineering attacks and disinformation... Maybe they should finally choose one.

Jeszcze trochę i #LinkedIn stanie się serwisem randkowym dla osób, które interesują się tylko prestiżem. Niefortunnie sformułowany komunikat ;)

@madargon@is-a.cat avatar

@SceNtriC @Zenek73 Ja trzymałam konto dość długo mimo zaglądania co pół roku z powodu "a co jak będę szukać pracy". W praktyce i tak wszystkie dotychczasowe prace zdobywałam innymi kanałami. Dopiero niecały miesiąc temu pozbyłam się całkiem.
A te inne sposoby używania, w połączeniu z wyglądem ich interfejsu i sponsorowamymi postami widocznymi mimo paru warstw blokerów to były właśnie powody, dlaczego zaglądałam tam tak rzadko :blobcatjoy:

Lygodactylus lugubris #gecko, based on photos my cousin sent me. Planned as more realistic style, but it turned out like that.

Must delete Google.

I am nearly ready to delete my Google Account. The 1 thing taking forever is changing my e-mail address on all my many accounts.

@Linux Congratulations : :blobcat_toot:

@madargon@is-a.cat avatar

@Linux @dan_lerch Ouch, I still remember that pain. Reason why it took me about 4 months even if I didn't have important data in account. And some services required contact with customer support to do it.

This one is Eurasian bullfinch. And it's one of few works I was really satisfied with final effect - finally something turned out as I imagined :blobcatjoy:​

Writing this as a person with dark hair and bright floor in current apartment. Seeing these damned hair on floor gave me kind of OCD since I moved here.

Anyone else still draw with a traditional tablet without a built-in screen?

@madargon@is-a.cat avatar

@RaethDragon Do you mean drawing tablet, like Wacom?

@madargon@is-a.cat avatar

@RaethDragon So I have Wacom One, bought in 2017, rather for experiments, I didn't draw digitally then.
And wait... Most people use tablets with screens currently?!? :blobcatsurprised:
