Pinned post

My old instance was down too often so I have moved. I am trying to get the account migrated but I am not sure it is working - I will start rebuilding from here and I will update the website and owncast etc.

Dear @minecraft community,

today I started my Wii U and played a round.
First time I encountered a green voxel with eyes jumping my way.

What is that?!
Will it hurt me?

They weren't around before I went to bed in #minecraft

Send halp!

Some period tracking apps will share your data. Stay safe, use one from @fdroidorg without Internet permission.

Possible options are:
drip (safest!)
Periodical
log28

All of these apps don't ask for internet permission and thus can't share your data. Drip goes the extra mile and explicitly opts out of Android's backup framework so your data won't be backed up on Google servers.

Please boost for those who need it!

Taking a short break from streaming due to Real Life™ but I will be back on Monday with the schedule as published on the website.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

Are you a emoji/emote artist who is up for paid commissions and want to see your work shipped with #Owncast?

It's time for Owncast to clean up what custom emoji/emotes we ship with and add some that would resonate with streamers and their viewers.

This could be a fun paid project for an artist with experience in these tiny icon-sized works of art! Feel free to DM or chime in on the below issue:

One of the most requested features on Mastodon is a built-in language translation system, where you can click on a post and it automatically translates it into your language.

If this is important to you, and if you are comfortable using Github, please give this issue a thumbs up to let the developers know that this feature is wanted:

github.com/mastodon/mastodon/i

(I thought this was already being worked on, but I cannot find any official announcements saying this.)

Some bonus streaming for a wee while (and also to solicit help from smarter people than me!)

Bonus stream with programming

Anybody got any recommendations for sci-fi or fantasy ebooks where I can just buy direct from the author or publisher DRM free? (preferably as an epub) #ebooks #scifi #fantasy

Finally got around to reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I liked it, especially how it's written from the perspective of children. They see how screwed up society is and how ridiculous the adults are behaving when in the kids' eyes those are the people that are supposed to be responsible and know what they're doing.

I think I'll blow the dust off my Gemini capsule and write something about the book.

Due to RL circumstances I won't be on stream tonight, sorry. I will be back tomorrow night as usual.

Just about to start streaming, Classic arcade gaming and a little bit of web page coding to make a hi-score gallery.
