I... I've spent almost two full weeks on getting this algorithm right.

They're aperiodic tilings of rhombs, which can be constructed through (de Bruijn's) method of multiple grids, which is effectively the same as projecting a 5/6/7/8/9, etc cube grid onto 2d. Shows up in nature as quasicrystals.

Tried to get this working in seexpr, failed miserably. Still spent like 2 days on getting something visible in .

I am so tired, but happy.

And we've got a new feature release! Krita 4.3.0 is out for Linux, Windows, MacOS and as a beta still, for Android: krita.org/en/item/krita-4-3-0-

I need to be better about watching gsoc projects of my favorite programs.

Not only the @Krita android port is slowly becoming a reality but also there is a gsoc to integrate the amazing brushes to :)

By the way if you have an android tablet and want to help this amazing /#FOSS tool up you can install the experimental android version and report bugs. :)

Can anyone recommend a good digital audio interface for music recording?

I would like something with at least 8 inputs, though I'm also interested in anything cheap even if it has fewer than that.

Mine is a PCI card, but that seems to be old tech now -- and it would be nice to have something that could work over USB, for use with a laptop.

I'll want to use it with Linux, but at this point I'll take recommendations for anything even if you don't know whether there are Linux drivers; I'll do the research and/or take the risks.

question about choosing a 3D printer 

ok so trying to buy a and can use some advice/opinions from people who have experience with the machines in question.

Narrowed down to Adventurer 3 and duplicator i3 mini.

What I am looking for is minimal fuss (I am looking at this as a tool, not a hobby), safe (no open power units and fire hazard cable connections), quiet (living in a tiny apartment with neighbors), and in this my price range. (cont)

question about choosing a 3D printer 

oh to clarify, I want to print with PLA and other low temperature filament. Wood filament is especially something I want to use. Metal fill and flexible filament compatibility would be also a selling point.

Higher temperature filaments while is a nice thing to have is lesser priority for me, I can live without them as they will be tricky to print in a living environment even with the enclosure.

thanks for the help in advance. :)

question about choosing a 3D printer 

In terms of noise level I heard both loud and quiet on both. It won't sit next to my bed, but I need it to be no louder than a fridge. So at least adventurer 3 advertises to be so, looks like i3 mini is not terrible?

I am also open to other suggestions. I don't mind some assembly, but no fire hazards please, or open power units. (wanhao and creality models are generally available unless very new. Other brands usually aren't)

question about choosing a 3D printer 

Adventurer is reported to have issues with older filaments especially and when swapping. The custom nozzle worries me (even through it will probably last longer than and finding spare parts where I live) Also cloud connection and closed firmware :/ I can live with the built in spool thing

that being said it has a heated bed, an enclosure (even PLA is better to not print in open) and looks self contained and safe. Heated bed and bed size are the 2 advantages.

question about choosing a 3D printer 

Wanhao dup. i3 mini I think I can live with the bed size (I am planning for a second machine in long run and I think while I'd like 15cm it is not a disaster) and it is cheap enough I can afford to build an enclosure for it so that is not an issue

Lack of heated bed worries me through, and some comments about bed stability on "larger" prints.

it seems to have 0 problems with mats and I really like that it is an open hardware.

Hey, Inkscape community! Here's an interesting update from contributor Link Mauve about adding GPU acceleration to Inkscape: linkmauve.fr/blog/2020/06/12/b

@LPS @kvokao You know, from the stuff @eylul and @KnowPresent have talked about during their LGM talks on educating with FOSS, I am more and more inclined to blame a lot of industry defacto's on the weird way we teach technical programs to students.

Like, there's a prevalence of 'press button to get effect' instead of theory in software related classes, because we can't get 'technical'... Even though the same type students got taught technical stuff like lithography and silkscreen in the past.

Alright, my transformable patterns work is in master now, so if you're inclined, check out the nightly of... well, coming night.

It's not terribly fast, but it's seamless and does as advertized.
