Yay, won my first game of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup! Minotaur Berserkers are pretty great. Thanks for the recommendation @Jephjacques -- especially for recommending the Ultraviolent4 videos, they realllllyyyy helped out

I would personally like to apologize for the antispam movement of the late 90s and early 00s. We did more harm than good. Nothing we did reduced the amount of spam significantly, and we created the centralization of email, where not only does your personal email belong to a monopolist, but to have an email newsletter, you must hire another monopolist to send it.

I'm sorry.

Writing a little thing in Racket (bot for interacting with Braid (new chat project I've been working on (github.com/braidchat/braid))), I've been very pleasantly surprised by how unsurprising & easy everything has been.

Yay, hit 112 WPM on my Keyboardio Model 01 yesterday (using 10fastfingers.com). Finally past my old best-ever on my normal keyboard (108 wpm). It is amazing how much the Model 01 helps typing...feels like it’s guiding your fingers to the right places & molds to your hands.

Our twins are four months old today, and holidays are approaching, and I thought it would be a good idea to give a little something to someone who could use it. This coming Sunday, I'll buy the "Be a Coder" bundle (humblebundle.com/books/be-a-co) to someone who needs, and wants it.

If you'd like to have it, or know someone who would, and you (or them) can't buy it, contact me. Either via DM, or e-mail at be-a-coder@gergo.csillger.hu.

Boosting this toot for better coverage is most appreciated!

I ran in to a very annoying problem with passing Transit data from Clojure to things written in other languages -- turns out Transit has a caching feature that is kind of a pain to disable occasionallycogent.com/2017/12

After demonstrated they can't be trusted, disables their studies on new profiles.

Woof, that stupid promo extension was a bad decision from Mozilla...I disabled Studies and opted out of analytics. They are going to have to do a *lot* to earn the trust they had back.

I think the challenge is taking people used to centralized models, used to dystopia, used to outrage and revolt and irony, and placing them in something almost revoltingly sincere. It’s so difficult. They get used to the only fleeting release from despair being attention.

Hi everyone, I'm happy to announce that I have founded a VR game studio, in collaboration with luminous beings who appear above my bed at night. For the forseeable future I'm going to be working on making ~~something incredible~~ for VR fulltime.

The studio is named Mermaid Heavy Industries, and you can find the website at mermaid.industries . I'll be posting preview media at this account: @mermaidindustries and RTing it here.

I hope that I am able to show you something incredible.

Patreon is starting to look like that thing where a startup 'fires' customers they don't consider profitable enough but end up setting their business on fire because it is run by privileged rich kids with barely enough theory of mind to consider other people human.

K&R is now free! #C #programming


This really is a great book, anyone who does any sort of programming should read it. It's not very long but really gives you an understanding of the fundamentals of C.

Let me introduce you to the hack of the century

I just realized that CIDER lets you set function breakpoints, single-step, and see locals. This is so cool! endlessparentheses.com/cider-d
