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.

there's a middle ground between "Linux as a personality" and " it doesn't matter at all who controls the future of computing". be careful not to react against one so hard that you slide right into the other.

Some of my illustrations from about a yearish after I graduated art school. Although I had some great profs, I feel like I grew the most when I started working on things at my own pace.

@neauoire does the day number in arvelie start at zero or at one? Can't get my head around these two examples from your page:

02A00 2008-01-01 // starts at zero
14C01 2009-01-29 // starts at one

Not sure how many people are aware of this but there is a project called Lemmy which is basically an open source federated Reddit which at least appears to care about moderation on the surface.

Its alive and in the wild too!

I really really hope Unity3D dies a fast and horrible death. Coming from Godot, I can't believe people actually use this engine

Let's say that you are a big organization and you are going to name your new cool cross platform UI framework.

The chosen name conflicts with another open source framework for the same purpose.

1. You did not perform a web search before naming

2. You did, you found it, and said "who cares?"

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."
