Some of my music i thought was lost to time has surfaced again! This is my first ever chip music release available again for the first time in nearly 10 years or so.
“I need to Apply Ethercase Plating, who has the Holospindle now?”
“No, the Plectrolever needs adjustment. I have the Quasipaddle, I still need the tool that looks like a, uh, cotton spool with handles?”
“We hit a Transdimensional Wormhole! Everyone change seats, QUICK!”
#SpaceTeam is a hectic #RealTime #CoOperative card game. Fix the problem cards in front of you with the tools from your team-mates, activate the ship (“Booster Systems are Go!”) before the sand timer runs out for everyone!
It's clear that #Azul is a favourite. This means, though, that the hard tiles get scrubbed about so much the dye wears off.
Preparing my newly-purchased set with some clear varnish applied to both sides of every tile.
The #DIY spirit inspired me to grab some discarded cardboard and make an origami box to store the factory bases as well.
The varnish, when dry, doesn't seem to have changed how the tiles look. So hopefully now it'll be pretty for many years of play!
“The technology behind the internet is not incompatible with our rights, but the business model Facebook and Google have chosen is.”
Yep, that’s Amnesty International saying that.
brainstorming, fdroid promoting nazis
Let's use this thread to discuss what we can do to stop F-Droid from platforming nazis, terfs and "free speech" extremists". For context, F-Droid is an open source app store for Android (similar to Google Play). They are providing multiple forks of #Tusky which are developed by fascists or fascist sympathisers. The only change in these forks are the logo, name, and the removal of the hardcoded Gab block.
Lots of people have told F-Droid that this is bad, but the team has ignored that because they dont want to "get political". We have also discussed forking F-Droid, but that would be a huge undertaking, and there are not enough people with the time and skills to do this.
So, any idea what else we can do? Please boost.

I fucking love swearing. I also love Profanity.
Profanity is a nice little chat client that just drifts into the background with all the other terminals I have open during the day though, and so much less intrusive than alternatives. I usually keep one instance open in a screen session on a machine somewhere I can easily SSH to. It's very handy.
My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.
Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.
Feel free to boost. #trans
