It's time to look at the birth of the @gnome Foundation, on this week's episode of The History of podcast —

Love Tootdon using Japanese for error messages

RG Tallgeese EW finally done. 💯 build, would do it again

It's Thursday, which means: a new episode of The History of GNOME is up. This week: the Desktop Wars begin!

I can’t believe it’s literally Sabrina canon that Salem is some kind of horrifying goblin who came in from the woods and is a ruthless killing machine but is pretending to be a sweet pet, or in other words, is a completely normal cat

Managed to secure an RG Sazabi at the MCM Comic-Con today, after seeing at least two other people walking away with one. I threw in an RG Tallgeese EW for good measure, as I couldn’t find it in the usual online shops. All in all, a good haul

Sadly, the ARX-8 Laevatain was still on pre-order online and I couldn’t complete the FMP bundle 😔

I’m off to the London MCM comic con tomorrow, so I may end up getting a couple more models if I find something interesting

Not but still pretty cool models, and the weekend is sorted

Expect an episode every Thursday, for the next few weeks, while I go through the 1.x cycle of the project

The History of GNOME is meant to be a way for newcomers to the project to get a better overview of how we got where we are now; it may also be interesting for old timers, to remember how far we've come

Since I like history, I care about the @gnome project, and I love making people cringe with my voice, I started a podcast about the History of GNOME:

heyyy uh

quick reminder

ESR took a cool counterculture and got his shitty right-wing UNIX ideology all over it—he's not just a bad person, he's a exceptionally bad historian and you shouldn't take his word for anything, the jargon file that he "curates" reflects nothing like an actual 70s/80s programming culture.

here's a pre-ESR jargon file for reference:

RG Mk II A.E.U.G.: experiments with detailing the frame before armour assembly. The “build frame first, bolt armour on top later” approach has its upsides (detailing) and downsides (panel lining and decal only after the final assembly instead of per-block)

I got myself a cheapo photo box off and phone tripod of Amazon, so this is also the first time I managed to get some decent pictures of the end result

@ebassi this is also the first time a part snapped in two and had to glue the pieces together; luckily, it was the shield arm, so no major loss of poseability

New build for the weekend: RG Aile Strike Gundam. I’m getting too old for 1/144 scale models, especially RG with their tiny tiny pieces...
