Funny bug story:
Eons ago I had to write a windows application (for work) instead of the usual embedded stuff. I believe I was also learning C++. I'm sitting at my desk, running my program (which is supposed to talk via the serial port) over and over, when an irate coworker comes in with reams of paper printed in gibberish from the network printer yelling "are these yours???!!!"
Turns out I was sending my commands over the network instead...

PERIODIC REMINDER THAT THE RED HAT LOGO IS ACTUALLY A T-REX PUNCHING A TRICERATOPS
i put together a blog and wrote a post about browsers: https://garbados.github.io/my-blog/browsers-are-a-mess.html
I mentioned I was writing a Mastodon client named Rackstodon.
It's till very WIP, but you can see a screenshot here: https://dustycloud.org/tmp/rackstodon_test.png
Soon I'll refactor it into an ActivityPub client that "translates" itself to Mastodon's API and rename it "Postsaurus".

#b3d #python #retimey
So I'm making another blender addon!
I'm having to finish shots, which means lots of retiming...
Unfortunately blender can hide data from you, or it's impossible to offset in one go. I'm making an addon to do it for you: https://mastodon.social/media/JPhWO_t-gwh1NUOfx1I
it should handle
2-function curve modifiers
4-material and texture animation
6-smart NLA stuff incl. stashed actions
(so far it does the first 4 things)
net neutrality, and a call to action! Show more
I called my senators and asked them to overturn today's disastrous ruling by the FCC https://www.battleforthenet.com/
You should too! The fediverse is a place full of folks who are well informed about how critical net neutrality is to the internet as a democratic institution, as it was designed to exist. Make your voice heard!
emacs rant Show more
so I made an attempt to learn emacs again... this isn't a knock on emacs users.. but the tutorial text always gets me so infuriated that I bow out after a few minutes... It's a good reminder not to mix *opinion* with information: ctrl f-b-u-d are not "more efficient" than the arrow keys for everybody, especially if you don't have foot pedals or are unwilling to give yourself rsi - same goes for substituting pgup/pgdn with ctrl combos.

It's interesting how Gen X has
largely faded from public discourse - it's all boomers/millennials now.
Just a follow up. This seems to be what I needed:
Will try it on the next project...
PSA for #linux #artists : Know that #krita (https://krita.org) exists, it's a great painting (and animation!!! program) with lovely brushes, a great community, loads of features, and support for a variety of color depths and image formats.
It also works on windows and mac if you are unfortunate enough to use those platforms :P
