@Reinderdijkhuis Well, speaking strictly of graphic images, I would tend to think PNG as it's lossless, open source, compressed, etc. For layered compositions, though, one would have to export each layer as a separate PNG with some accompanying metadata about layer properties, which wouldn't be very friendly.

@Reinderdijkhuis Oh! Ha, I misunderstood -- are you talking specifically about digital images (ie graphics)? I thought you meant more broadly 'digital images' as in disk images. My comment was pretty useless then, sorry!

@olihough86 Version 1 (no longer available maybe?) is pretty decent. Sometimes minor glitches, and SSL can be touchy. Version 2, when I upgraded, was a major heap.

@Reinderdijkhuis Interested to hear your thoughts. Are you going to publish somewhere?

My inclination is towards the most 'raw' format possible (for future-proofing), but would also need to take into account error correction and potentially compression.

Tried my hand on a little bit of animation to promote my new track "Mechanics". Hope I didn't fail 😂 😂 😂 Full track here: soundcloud.com/dreikelvin/mech

i thought the whole point of fedi was to reduce social networks to a series of neighborhoods (instances)

why would we want to introduce features which effectively absolve the HOA (admins) of their responsibility to keep the neighborhood up by replacing that responsibility with vigilante justice?

Day Three: Still no coffee, no alcohol, minimal sugar from a little bit of chai latte. No headache, but very tired all day.

I'll take it. Things are getting better.

@ajroach42 Also you can find more DOS games than you can shake a box of floppies at on the-eye.eu/public/Games/eXo/eX

Day Two. Minimal sugar from a skyr and some granola. No coffee, no alcohol. Nasty headache still.

Don't let anyone tell you that coffee and sugar aren't addictive... I had a more pleasant time quitting smoking after fifteen years.

Having a look on the web for stuff I read years ago and could use now, and gutted by how many resources have just disappeared over the years, anything from robotics to diy guitar effect pedals to sewing patterns, it's all a forest of dead links, server errors and cybersquatting domain names.

If you really like something or feel it will be useful one day, point web.archive.org to it and save a local copy, better a cluttered hard drive now than irretrievable information later.

It is hard to free fools from the chains they revere.

Day One. No sugar, coffee, or alcohol. Felt decent most of the day, if irritable. Now I'm getting a nasty headache. Tomorrow has to be better, right?

#VirtuaVerse cool as...

A #cyberpunk epic point & click adventure musically backed (and story written by) MASTER BOOT RECORD.

and I quote its blurb..

"Travelling around the world, he'll have to walk across hardware graveyards, deal with digital archeology, tribes of cryptoshamans, and virtual reality debauchery."

Everything about it has me lathered up, salivating and expectant.

@afroSwampMonster Unsolicited advice, ignore if that's bothersome...

Best advice I've ever heard to improve the quality of one's writing is to read. More. And more. And read critically, when you can -- examine how successful (or not) the author is at doing what *you* want to do, then learn from how they did/didn't do it.

@self In a sense, I'm with you on this. I think the pointless CW on everything is almost memetic at this point. But, it's not my choice, it's theirs.

However, you can set your settings to auto-expand all CWs, then just liberally mute individuals that consistently post things that actually bother you... seems like a two-for-one deal, to me.

@m455b If you join a mesh network (, ) you don't have to pay for an external IP.

For that matter, with IPv6 you don't either.

I loudly applaud the rise of projects that make self-hosting apps & services easy!

freedombox.org (found out today about this one)
yunohost.org

Self-hosting is made more accessible day by day, even for non-techies. Decentralize!
