Finished muh entry! Hopefully I didn't break anything last minute...

It's basically a very casual adventure game about old tech and societal collapse after some sort of nuclear event. Check it out:

I have another mastodon profile! If you're interested in cooperatives, non-hierarchical organisational structures, alternatives to capitalism, or anything like that, follow me over on social.coop: social.coop/@hyperlinkyourhear

I probably won't post there as much as here, I'm not exactly a wordsmith.

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

I'm particularly interested in 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 tells me :P

Coronavirus, conspiracism 

It's frustrating seeing any uncertainty over the accuracy of tests expressed in scientific literature twisted into talk of a hoax, or a reason to abandon any attempt to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Even if there were no possible tests we should still take steps to prevent the spread.

There's a lot of "kids these days" energy in VirtuaVerse, and as a jaded old man myself, I absolutely love it

Fascism 

One thing I did remember about the movie, and which I think stands out even more now, is how shallow its conception of fascism is. Once the leader and his lieutenant are taken out, the military just lay down their weapons and everything goes back to normal. As if the regime wouldn't have spent their 15 years in power purging the ranks of the military of everything but true believers, and society at large of all significant political opposition.

COVID conspiracism 

And what amuses me most about that is that the same people who think the coronavirus is an engineered bio-weapon are the ones saying we should allow it to spread uncontrolled through the population.

I watched V for Vendetta last night, and I had completely forgotten about the false flag epidemic plot element. The conspiracist community must be having a field day with that lol

When people tell stories about widely used open source projects going quiet when its developers are no longer being funded to work on the project, it's very, very, true.

I still have funding which allows me to keep some lights on at SVN. But most of the other devs don't, and the camel's back will break at some point.

Yes, SVN is still heavily relied upon. Ask developers working in industry, finance, and manufacturing.

Where is this bullshit late 90s open source "revolution" when you need it?

I think I might work on a new art portfolio site today. Y'know, instead of working on any of my many in-progress projects.

I just renamed the Hg projects and recreated them as git ones. No biggie. I am gone from bitbucket otherwise though.

It seems bitbucket did not delete all Hg repos on the 1st as threatened.

I only had a couple left there belonging to a particular client, and I would leave them there as git repos, but, bafflingly, they haven't even provided any way to switch the version control system of a project so that that I can push my locally converted repos
