Making it so that the homeless can continue to steal from local businesses and sleep on their doorsteps is not a solution to homelessness. The solution is to house and feed everyone.

Just a little something I'm starting on, maybe as a first multiplayer game. Maybe also a game where you write AI players... is what I have been looking for for ages! Easily see which processes are using your network. Someone should package it for Debian...

This was a real scummy thing for Nintendo to do (even though they have done worse in the past). Nintendo Switch users need to read this.

Thank you for your patience and for making it possible for me to run this fun project.

And just as a reminder, I leave here the 4th paragraph from Terms of Service:

... I was dreading a day like this for over 4 years.

The first version of smolpxl-remote, my WebSocket multiplexer for playing with friends, seems pretty much ready: you can create games, connect to them, and reconnect on failures.

Now to think about the UI in the games themselves.

Do you want to work full time redecentralizing the internet and FIX EVERYTHING?

The Internet Archive is hiring!

Why am I using an Oracle box? Not out of any love for Oracle. Just because they give you two working Linux boxes for free, in exchange for your credit card details.

I installed LetsEncrypt Certbot on my Oracle cloud box, using snap, which is available via `yum install snapd`. Quite a few steps involved, which I wrote up here:

OpenSearch has reached 1.0 - it's a fork of the last Apache-licensed ElasticSearch. Glad to see FOSS working as it should when the original devs take a different path: #linux #opensearch #elasticsearch #fork #foss

@andybalaam Check out Site.js, if you want an easy way to get it up and running :)

1. Install (copy/paste in terminal)
2. site --enable :8080

(You should have a production version of your app server running via systemd and with LE certs.)

I set up dynamic DNS today on the Oracle Cloud machine I am going to use for . Next step, LetsEncrypt, so I can use encrypted WebSockets.

My Oracle Cloud free instance has way lower latency than my paid-for Dreamhost server, so I'll be trying out using the Oracle box for my new remote-play feature for Smolpxl.

I'm really proud of England's football team. Well done everyone.

Just typo'ed a servername while reconnecting to an IRC channel, and accidentally put in libera dot net instead of the correct dot chat, and you wouldn't believe where I found myself: Back on Freenode. Who've apparently secured that domain, and are using it to try to trick people back on to their services.
