Hello #Mastodon! ๐Ÿ

You and your friends need to know about this amazing #libre game engine ๐ŸŽฎ, so watch, boost and spread the word! ๐Ÿ—ฃ


#GodotEngine #FOSS #gamedev

flesk boosted

๐ŸŽจ maybe you create art, photography, design, using software like #krita #gimp #ardour #blender, #darktable, #mypaint #inkscape

๐ŸŽผ ...and music using #ardour #lmms #kxstudio #hydrogen #puredata or distros like #ubuntustudio

๐Ÿ“ ...or when writing stories your tools to go are #plume #libreoffice or #zim

๐Ÿ“ฝ Maybe you make films and animation with #kdenlive #pitivi #synfig

๐ŸŽฎ ...or make games with #godot or #twine

๐Ÿ›  You might be using tools like #robocut #openCAD #processing or #arduino to create your art or design of any form

๐ŸŽช or simply creating art using traditional mediums, doing work in performance art, circus arts or theatre, using any of the above or others to create or document your work.

are you an artist or creative in the most generic sense of the word, and use #FOSS / #FLOSS / #OpenSource software as part of your workflow?

consider tagging your works with
๐Ÿง #artWithOpenSource tag and check out the tag for works by your fellow mastodon artists who also prefer Open Sourced alternatives.

(sibling tags of interest: #linuxartists #flossart #libreMonday and #creativeCommons )

If you want Mastodon to be less toxic (the Internet in general is toxic in my experience and every space eventually becomes just like the rest of the Internet)

It starts with you.

Don't start shit.

Don't go on witch hunts. Don't feed into witch hunts even if you agree with the reason. One person's witch hunt is another person's victimisation.

If you see bullshit, don't feed into it.

If you have something to add, CW it.

If it bothers you, don't click through a discourse CW.

A lot of the software used by public institutions is proprietary. This means that the public - including you - is financing software that cannot be modified, studied, shared, or improved.

How can we put our trust in public bodies if they don't have full control over the software they are using?

Shouldn't your money be used to develop software that benefits you and other citizens?

If you think it should, join the #publiccode campaign.

software became very common. Meanwhile patents are still used to gain more control over our basic needs such as .

There's an initative in wanting to change that:

- Fight market concentration in the seed sector
- Promote food security through diversity
- Restore crop seeds as
- Seed must be utilised freely
- Use open-source licensing against patents and variety protection

Kids and Linux/Opensource , all my kids use Arch Linux ( 8yrs, 12yrs and 16yrs)

my 8 yr old likes using GIMP , my 12 yr old daughter uses Krita - was interviewed earlier in teh year krita.org/en/item/interview-wi

My eldest has a youtube channel and uses kdenlive to edit his videos.

they all prefer their home PC's Operating System and software over using the Windows PC's they use at school

I hope they continue to use and enjoy.

Almost forgot my #LibreMonday :)

#CuteMarkEd is a lightweight, cross-platform #Markdown editor with HTML preview.

I use it every now and then when #nano is not enough for a quick edit of a .md file :)

I use Wallabag every day, but I don't think I posted about it yet. (I'm a bookmark hoarder.)

Wallabag makes it convenient to bookmark and tag web content on multiple devices and browsers, can be used to keep track of reading and integrates nicely with RSS readers. The backend can be set up on your own server, but there's also an affordable paid hosting option for those who prefer that.

Last Wednesday I thought of a project I wanted to highlight for this week's . Can't for the life of me remember what it was now though. :/

Fortunately, it's possible to do very gentle anti-racist interventions that won't cause a scene (or make your racist relative defensive, which is also not helpful). The SPLC has a guide: splcenter.org/20150126/speak-r

You can be very subtle and still be effective. This is a way to address bigotry in a quiet, non-confrontational, but effective manner. Now is the time to start on this.

#imageMagick [imagemagick.org/] is the other CLI tool I use regularly. It has many image modification features: resizing, converting between file types, color management, creating gifs and even drawing.

I use imageMagick for averaging already aligned images and occasionally scaling them when creating the super-resolution images. (Another advantage to imageMagick is that you can turn an operation with exact settings into a script - or at least a copy-pastable command that is somewhere in your notes). :)

Carrying on with FLOSS games I enjoy for #LibreMonday. I can't believe no one talked about this one yet on #mastodon becuase it really diserves it and get better and better with each release. I'm talking about #SuperTuxKart (GPL3), of course!

If you're looking for a lightweight, good looking and powerful calculator, I highly recommend #SpeedCrunch!

It's cross-platform, portable and you can type easily any kind of simple or advanced formula and see the results in real time. Ah, and #libre of course! :)

SimpleScreenRecorder is a GPL-3.0 licensed application for recording and streaming games on . It's not as feature rich as OBS, but, as the name suggests, it's very simple to use.

I've used it for almost all of my videos on YouTube, and found it more than adequate for my needs, in most cases.

"We're having a problem sending email out of the department."

"What's the problem?" I asked.

"We can't send mail more than 500 miles," the chairman explained.

I choked on my latte. "Come again?"

"We can't send mail farther than 500 miles from here," he repeated. "A little bit more, actually. Call it 520 miles. But no farther."
