More Geometry Nodes in Blender. This time trying for something less abstract, still leaning heavily on instances. The leaves are using a procedural that allows different variations on each leaf through shading, though the geometry is instanced.

There's only 3 unique pieces of geometry in this - my challenge was to try to create something organic using only instances (It's realtime!!!) Did I succeed?

My old job (visiting animation faculty at hampshire college) is open! The students, staff and faculty are amazing, they were happy to have me teaching there, and it is a great experience:

There it is, the amount of progress I managed to do on my little creature drawing during Hack & Craft! I really enjoyed today, I look forward to doing this again :)

Was sick of seeing the default bright titlebar for in , so made a smol python hack that sets (just) the main window titlebar to the dark theme, using xprop. Only tested for Xorg/Gnome, get it on gitlab

Ooooh! If you're a Python dev in Paris looking for important work in FOSS, please read @zacchiro's post in this thread! Or just go to: softwareheritage.org/jobs/

Software Heritage is one of the most important orgs we have in the FOSS'y space, and really super wonderful people there too!

Today I implemented a new Euler filter, to remove discontinuities from rotations. If you want to help test the new filter, please download an experimental build from developer.blender.org/D9602 and let me know how it works for you.

Georgia is having a runoff Jan 5 to decide who our 2 new senators will be. If those senators go blue Mitch McConnell will no longer be Senate Majority Leader. You have until December 7 to register to vote. Retweet to spread awareness even if you don’t live here.

Mastodon does not store passwords in plain text. This is trivial to confirm as Mastodon is an open-source project. We use the bcrypt algorithm for one-way hashing of passwords. I can't believe someone is spreading misinformation about something so trivial to debunk.

Between 2 and 2.5 years ago, depending on whether you look at medium.com/we-distribute/faces or dustycloud.org/blog/spritely/ I announced the Spritely project. I hedgingly joked while asked to describe it that it's "well, vaporware, mostly".

With the upcoming release of Goblins and its support for real distributed programming (on a mutually suspicious network, even) we'll be approaching the point where it'll be fair to say that Spritely is very much so *not* vaporware, is demonstrably interesting

Friends: "Chris we know you're getting into this ocaps thing but we love you and care about you we want you to be safe"
Me: "Don't worry, I can manage myself just fine"

mild swearing, proprietary software 

I love the companies selling proprietary software like to find new ways for me to want to avoid their products.... (also, what the literal fuck, Autodesk?)
