I am looking for a digital #artist to commision for three assets for the mastodon client @Tusky: A generic "elephant friend", an image for the error view (maybe a sad elephant?) and an image for the empty view (maybe a sleeping elephant?). Must look good on dark and light background and fit well with material design. Artist must be ok with the assets being published under an open source license. Vector assets preferred. Commission will of course be payed.
Commercial, but a steal:
#OpenBSD-curious? You can get ebook of The Book of PF and Absolute OpenBSD for $15 as part of No Starch's Linux Humble Bundle.
Yes, yes, it says Linux. But lots of stuff in the bundle is cross-Unix, like Python and gdb and gimp and so on.
Alt-Right White Wolf Article: Update Show more
You may have seen the article going around from "Dog With Dice" about how the latest version of White Wolf's "Vampire: The Masquerade" was specifically written for and marketed to the alt-right.
The article author's whole site is now dead and their Twitter account has been deleted without explanation.
I suspect foul play and severe harassment from alt-right 4channers.
The article is still cached here. Spread it far and wide.
"Over 89 per cent of apps in the Google Play store make use of an API that requests screen capture or recording – and the user is oblivious as it evades the Android permission framework"
Another important take-away from my meetings already: calling MEPs is way more effective than e-mailing them.
E-mailing MEPs with a standard e-mail from a template can actually be counter-productive.
If you can, please *call* your MEPs. You can find your MEP here:
If you'd rather e-mail, please write two-three paragraphs in your own words, from your e-mail address. Even if it's not as slick as the template, it will work way better!
just witnessed a 22-year-old not knowing how to close an envelope. they didn't believe the person that told them to lick it. to be fair, it *does* sound ridiculous.
Second day with my new keyboard.io. Big struggle to type at a decent speed, and shortcuts are a pain because there's no muscle memory... but it feels great to type on *and* I really like that my constant mistakes are mostly because I insist on moving my fingers *too much*. It feels that keyboard.io keys are closer and easier to reach than in a regular keyboard.
I meant the colours of the backlight BTW! It can simply change over time, or react to the software currently being run (I think), or whatever.
One of the default patterns is a rainbow that slowly moves to the left. It's just 😍
Today I received my keyboard.io. It looks amazing, but still very awkward to type on.
I'm looking forward to getting used to it, it feels like it will be great! And OMG how it looks! 😍
I'm also looking forward to playing a bit with customising colours and such...
