Ran a live test of my Acrophobia clone on Twitch tonight with 8 contestants! It totally ate shit because something is wrong with my acronym submission validator. It works when I test by myself or with two users but not in a live setting. But... it was fun anyway! Bodes well. twitch.tv/videos/216499988

On Friday my creative tech studio released Shortcut, our podcast clipping and sharing software, as an open source project! Podcast creators, please take a look, you might be pleasantly surprised. We're trying to build for podcasts what animated gifs are for YouTube.

Twitter's tagline "more of what's happening" sounds so funny. Like any of that which is happening is so good that we'd want more of it

My #1 and #2 Mastodon dreams:
1) Ability to transfer your account from one instance to another painlessly as part of the main feature set.
2) Edit button.

A couple days ago this wasn't here, which means in the last 48 hours or so, someone waded out into Lake Merritt to construct this Lordly Bird Perch.

At some point I lost the SCSI hard drive for my childhood Apple IIgs and whenever I remember this fact it is a source of sadness. After that sad thought, here is a video of the Photonix disc copying program by the French IIgs software group and demo scenesters FTA to lighten the mood. youtube.com/watch?v=6-pTW_GlbX

Adding some obligatory bubbling water FMV elements to this Acrophobia clone, which seem essential for any 90s-hacker-meets-game-show aesthetic. mastodon.social/media/9mSbzXCA

Oops actually annoying Mastodon question: do I have to unfollow and refollow everyone I added months ago for them to show up in my timeline? Only seeing people I added today.

Was going to write a stupid "trying Mastodon again" post but instead I'll share this test of a Twitch-based Acrophobia clone I started trying to make this weekend twitch.tv/videos/184407698

I came back after a couple months away and my timeline was empty until I unfollowed and refollowed people :( Sorry about that anyone.
