I've moved here from mastodon.social, am entirely new to the world of all things art, and am merely aspiring at the moment. Got myself an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and have been doodling around in Procreate. I'm hoping to get inspired and learn from all your amazing pieces of artwork.
This is a fascinating article: “Finally, a cure for insomnia?”
Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/organisation-stakeholder-dialogue-application-article-17-directive-copyright-digital-single .. Please speak up!
Are you a Mac developer that believes in our project? We have hit a brick wall with our macOS #Glimpse port and have a severe lack of Apple users in our project to unblock it!

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
[New Finer Tech] Google Reader’s death gave life back to RSS newsreaders https://finertech.com/2019/09/16/google-readers-death-gave-life-back-to-rss-newsreaders/
Wherein I finally collect my rant into a post about how I’m glad Google Reader died.
TW suicide mention, resources request
I am currently helping a queer friend who is struggling with feeling suicidal. If anyone can help me find LGBTQ+ mental health resources for adults (US-based) I would be incredibly grateful.
Boosts welcome. I can use any help available.
Thank you so much in advance.
I made bread today from the book I got Kristina for her birthday ("Flour Water Salt Yeast"), and HOLYFUCKINGSHIT it's AMAZING. Kristina rescued it at the very end where I fucked up a bit, but daaaaaaamn.
I started playing Alien Isolation again, then quickly remembered why I stopped. I’m not even very far into it and came across the first batch of people I’d seen, and they immediately shot and killed me. No in-game indication of what I’m meant to do or how to avoid them, just bam. Dead. Fuck that, I don’t have time or patience for games with that sort of mechanic. (Yes, Dark Souls sounds like my idea of hell).
We went to the Sydney Contemporary art exhibit at Carriageworks today! It was pretty cool, there were SO MANY paintings! Some of it was pure art wank ("Here's a painting that's indistinguishable from what a five year-old could do!") but not much. Naturally I took some photos of my favourites! #photography https://www.flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/albums/72157710836568646
