Let me get this right.
Freenode have repeatedly hostilely taken over channels. Including nuking ours at @gamingonlinux. Completely destroying trust.
Now they've setup a split network, and want everyone to have to re-register.
WHY would anyone bother at this point.
Freenode: "The new freenode is launched. You will slowly be disconnected and when you reconnect, you will be on the new freenode. It's a new genesis for a new era. Thank you for using freenode, and Hello World, from the future. freenode is IRC. freenode is FOSS. freenode is freedom. We're so happy to welcome you and the millions of others."
How delusional can this still get? What a megalomaniac.
We'll be doing a special co-op livestream with Samsai tonight, follow: https://www.twitch.tv/gamingonlinux
Will also need to create a good pipeline to compress the video files so they don't waste too much space. If I can combine that with semi-automatically updating the page then that's pretty much most of the way there.
The switch to Owncast means that VODs aren't automatically kept for the two weeks unlike on Twitch. So, I've set up a rudimentary page for it on my site: https://samsai.eu/past-streams/
Since nothing is automated, I need to try to remember to update that around once a week, but it works for now. I'll come up with better systems in the future.
Going to continue working on the CHIP-8 emulator over at https://cast.samsai.eu/. Today's goal is to implement sound support and try and tackle a few remaining bugs. See you in the chat!
Now I just need to set up a system that allows me to quickly process VODs from streams and upload them to the website and rotate them so that they don't take too much space.
Today's stream is going to work a bit differently than usual. I'm going to be playing Nowhere Prophet on a Owncast server I set up at https://cast.samsai.eu/ in about 15 minutes. This will be a bit of a test run so we'll see how it goes, but I've been curious to try Owncast for a while and this server migration gave me a good excuse to try.
Hello! Today I'm going to play a few Linux games from the Indie Bundle for Palestinian Aid over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai in about 15 minutes. Going to start with "Super Win the Game" and then do some "Silicon Zeroes". Then we'll get back to some more Blade of Agony. See you in the chat!
Well, fun is over with Freenode it seems. A channel op of ##videogames apparently got the staff to finally empty the remnants of #gamingonlinux including the access lists and redirect it to their channel. Bit dubious if you ask me, but I guess this means I can stop playing cat and mouse with the channel modes.
I'm going to continue working on my CHIP-8 emulator project over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai. After the bug hunt that was last stream, we might finally be able to work towards I/O today.
I'm going to be playing some Nowhere Prophet over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai in about 15 minutes. See you in the chat!
Hello! I'm going to be playing some Linux games over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai in about 15 minutes. Tonight's menu: "Lazy Chess" and "Resolutiion". Then we'll head back into Blade of Agony for more shooting and running. See you in the chat!
