Pinned toot

Just updated my profile to link back to here. Life's been pretty rough, mentally speaking.

If you're looking to adopt or co-maintain a package posted by me, shoot me an email or a toot about it here too. GMail situation is still kind of awkward.

Huh, apparently there's a Humble Bundle +$8 store credit going on right now. Providing my ref link in case people wanna check it out.

Pinned toot

Most of my day is busy on Sun-Tues due to my work schedule. Weds has biweekly fluctuations of availability. Just something to keep in mind when getting in contact.

Hi everyone. Trying to reclaim some of my life back from schedule-itus and various emotional difficulties. I don't have anything worked out for my long work weeks yet. But the short work weeks offered viable time to work on programming affairs. So, set my schedule to support such.

Right now I'm combing my AUR account to see what packages...

* Need their sources updated
* Should be orphaned due to high maintenance upkeep
* Should be updated

See for more information.

Just updated my profile to link back to here. Life's been pretty rough, mentally speaking.

If you're looking to adopt or co-maintain a package posted by me, shoot me an email or a toot about it here too. GMail situation is still kind of awkward.

That awkward moment when you find out belatedly your email client isn't supported by Google anymore.

No wonder I couldn't get updated when people sent me those @_@;.

Y'know, it just belatedly occurred to me. It's hard to have group activities on the internet aside from...

- Pushing/Pulling code from a VCS
- IMing people 1 on 1 or in groups
- Various site-specific accounts for activities that need special sites, some of which include forums, social networks, etc

What kinds of things do people do to spend time better w/o much face to face time available?

One of the main problems with the third one is having to privacy check the ToS on all the sites.

I found a neat piece of software called speedpad. Links for it are here:

Code mirror::

Added compatibility to it while I was playing with it. It's pretty decent. Handles multiline input well and gives stats on the most common typos one makes. I'm going to email my changes to the developer to see where I should submit this.

It's not the most exciting thing, but, here's a more thorough test of the slanted line reflection code I've been working on for . A mix of work and IRL swamped me from attending to such. Looks like it's error free now, so you guys can have a gif.

Top half of gif is vim editing the code that draws the reflections.

Bottom half of gif is the actual reflection demo.

So I bought a few books from and am quite pleased with what I'm reading so far. I still haven't finished all of it, but they definitely vetted the contents for quality. Go check it out if you want a good pile of DRM-free ebooks to read.

Decided to move blog over to . It's not as snazzy, but, it's more streamlined and accessible from my phone. It's clickable as a field on my profile instead of a pinned toot now.

Man, it took me forever to remember why captivated me so as a kid. Its lore was pretty dark, yet it always had color and very strong tinges of hope that doing the right thing can make a difference.

"You lured us to our doom!" the captain called.
"We're just singing," the sirens called back.
"To lure us!"
"No, for the love of singing."

Reaching out to the crowd again. I'm trying to increase my exposure to other types of fiction, but I also want to keep it expanded with both offline and online content. However, the general writing scene is so huge! Where do I start with finding a good site to randomly read a story?

Suggestions for animated shorts also much welcome.

Observation: "uwu" is such a reviled phrase that everyone attributes it to their enemies

Conclusion: if edgelords want to be serious about pissing off everyone at once, they should say "uwu" with zero irony

On the topic of : Wow, it's kind of hard to intentionally write irony. All the other figurative language exercises flowed easier for me.

Update on slanted reflection code: Figured out how to adjust the dab angle across the axis. I just forgot to adjust for the perpendicular case.

I've pushed the code to my graphics playpen repo.

Just need to port it into libmypaint now that all the math's figured out.

Progress on 's slanted reflection: So far I"m getting placing the dab at the right point, but not the angle of the dab. Will toot on this again when I've made headway on getting the reflected dab angle correct.

"On the equinox, the world balances 'twixt one and t'other, facing both, and absolutes have no power," the oracle said.
"I asked if it was weird to like both boys and girls."
"Only solstices are absolute."
"So it isn't weird?"
"You keep your own balance. Like all do."

Second thing on my todo list for coding is porting to QWebEngine. I don't think I drafted a complete demo for click overriding in it. That was the main blocker of the port due to interwiki links.

Finally got the hang of my job's flow. So I returned to some of the old code I had laying around. First up is 's symmetry guides. For rotational snowflake guides and slanted mirrored guides, first step was making a function that calculated the angle of each line and extended.

Next component will have to be calculating the mirroring when it's sloped. Haven't quite worked out the math for that yet, but it's progress! Yay.

"Take me to your leader," the alien said.
"I have none," said the cat.
"Are you the leader?"
"Nah. Go bother some humans instead."
"But your kind is a higher life form than them!"
"So what makes you think you have the right to impose on me?" the cat said, and sauntered off.
