Pinned toot


Hi, I'm Rafael :)
I work as a programmer but want to become an indie gamedev in the long term. I also make music and draw sometimes - It's a nice change from all the hard thinking. Also I cook with lots of garlic, butter and salt.

thanks a lot for making this, I love it :)

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

the sex bots really like my distributed systems toots so *sexy voice* computers can do many powerful things but *sexier voice* they will never confidentially agree about what time it is

"Thinking requires concentration. Concentration requires uninterrupted time. News pieces are specifically engineered to interrupt you. They are like viruses that steal attention for their own purposes. News makes us shallow thinkers."

Re github, I have half a mind to sign up, with all funding (and their matching $5k) earmarked toward getting a lawyer to answer my questions about this TOS

Is this the shortest definition of functional programming? "Programmers battling against time and change."

Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.

Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

And so we enter the #fediverse. Support for all instances is coming soon. We're just waiting on more of the Keybase community to update to the latest versions so all of these new proof options will look good in the UI. Thanks for your excitement!

One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that in bed he had been changed into the form of a STREAMING DATA PROCESSING FRAMEWORK

@[email protected] I'm looking for alternatives to popular todo-apps as wunderlist will shut down someday. Would you be interested in adding a section? todo.txt seems to be the most obvious choice, pairing well with nextcloud or syncthing and supporting many platforms.

Since seeing this comic a long time ago it has really changed the way I interact with the world around me, I now say "Thank you" rather than "sorry".

I stopped apologising for existing and for taking up space as a result I have stopped minimising myself.
