Pinned toot

Hi, I'm Will! I'm a 19-year-old cute NB trans girl, and I wanna do cool things with games! ✨

Currently I'm a CS/game design student at DigiPen in Redmond. I don't do much besides that at the moment, but I have a few game/writing/music projects on the side that I should dive into one of these days!

I love hanging out on Mastodon and meeting folks with similar interests, or just listening to people talk about their passions! Come say hi, I love making friends c:

For the part of my :

My tastes are all over the place, but I generally like games with good stories! I'm a sucker for meta because I'm a dork, but like, what other form of media can do shit like that?

I'm also fond of racing games. I'm a passive car nerd, and I enjoy driving (in real life as well as in games!). I'm not partial to a specific type of racer, as long as it gives me a nice sophisticated set of physics I can learn! (This applies beyond racing games, too!)

Hey . When you post pictures, please please please with puppies on top fill in that description box for the visually impaired. You will be helping us out tremendously. We want to enjoy your pictures as much as others do. You don't have to write a novel, but just fill in some details.

Thanks with much love:

Wondering what to put in the description field on an image? A quick guide:
1. Just say what's in the image--you don't need to say it's an image.
2. Describe only what's relevant to the conversation. "Annalee writing in a notebook" or "An example of candid portraiture" or "A person using a fountain pen" are all good captions of the same image, in different contexts.
3. All text that's meant to be read should be transcribed. Screencap? Transcribe. Sign in background of selfie? Don't transcribe.

The @kdecommunity Akademy delegates get a choice of lanyard. One lets other people know they don't want to be photographed. Not seen this at many events.

Hey gamers, it's me, Skirmisher, back again with a writeup on how I did that shit with the Keybase CLI on Android: md.hecke.rs/s/SyWx8-hBX

Documentation of further Android crimes involving Password Store is pending someone asking for it.

I spent a bit of time this evening writing a userscript and userstyle (I use them with a Fluid app wrapper) to make Mastodon feel a little more like a desktop app.

Tweaks include:
• Mobile-style tab bar is a sidebar
• Floating compose icon is on the left
• “Getting started” has a label
• All scrollbars are 100% native

You can get the CSS and JS here: gist.github.com/ticky/8acf2350

Looking into a physical Linux install using an arch-based distro. Is there a better way make a list of packages you'd want to install besides writing it all in a text file? A way to track dependencies (so I can choose programs with similar dependencies) would be nice too

Okay, if what I was doing before wasn't an Android crime, *this* is.

I just circumvented Android's app sandboxing by giving the Password Store app read/write/chdir permissions to my password repository, which resides in the Termux app data directory (i.e. my home directory!).

So now I can sync my passwords over Keybase encrypted git, and the Password Store app can access it seamlessly!

(Well...almost seamlessly. There's a couple flaws to this approach, but none I can't work around. 😅)
