📢 Owl is now on GitHub! 🎉
After an unsigned long long wait, I'm finally releasing the source code of Owl, my portable #Wayland compositor in Objective-C that runs on Mac OS X, the Hurd (and probably just about anywhere else thanks to the magic of #GNUstep). Along with it, I'm also publishing the port of Wayland that runs on OS X.
Please note that Owl is still very much a work in progress. It's amazing that many things work, but naturally others don't. There's a lot to improve!

just completely fucking dumbfounded by this robot amazon announced recently. $999 for this thing. it's just a goddamn alexa on wheels and a shitton of cameras. it can't handle stairs. the advertising has it patrolling your house for intruders (you know like a fucking set of security cameras can already do if you're that paranoid). amazon is not even trying to hide their intentions with this thing. i have never seen something more worthy of a platinum internet of shit medal. jesus christ
By sharing the audio as a network stream, you can use devices that are not intended to be used as audio sinks (eg. smartphones) to receive it.
For example, there are audio accessories that aren't compatible with desktop computers (e.g. because the computer doesn't support Bluetooth). With the help of this small tool, the computer audio can be played back on a smartphone, which is then connected to the BT accessory.

Today I merged the new ability of #GIMP clone/heal tools to work on several layers at once (each layer cloning from self to self). Useful when you need to clone exactly the same way on several layers (e.g. here with texture and diffuse/normals/displacement maps).
