Once-in-a-long-while reminder that I made an open source ASCII art, animation, and game creation tool called Playscii: vectorpoem.com/playscii
People have made some pretty cool stuff with it! playscii.tumblr.com
It's a dynamic, hackable thing written in Python so you can do all sorts of oddness with it.

Patreon is rad but it reveals the limits which capitalism puts on our lens of human value: the most successful patreons all provide a service or a product: something market-centric.

Friendly reminder: this isn't Twitter.

If you're mad about something? Use a content warning.

If you want to write a long post? Use a content warning.

Don't share screenshots of toots that make you mad, and don't follow people that make you mad.

You've left the swirling fire vortex of rage birdsite created to keep investors and advertisers happy. Live free! Live well πŸ‘

CrossSkitch is out now on itch.io!
vivaizix.itch.io/CrossSkitch

It's a drawing tool styled after embroidery, inspired by my late great-grandma and my karelian heritage.

Mouse only, play in your browser!

When the old jokes hurt too much that's your heart telling you to make new ones.

TIL there was a Philips CD-i version of Tetris (because of course there was) and its presentation and soundtrack are off the charts

I'd like to make leaving Twitter more convenient for anyone inclined to jump, and I've noticed one of the things that keeps me there is it's where a bunch of media outlets post and they don't run accounts here.

So I'm starting up a GamesIndustry.biz account that will toot out stories for people who want to keep up with industry news:

As The Film Ends is almost certainly my best bot. By pure luck I found an incredibly rich data set and found the right place to poke a straw in.

@jplebreton that exact thing has already happened to tamagotchis, so it's feasible!

there are a bunch of emulated tamagotchis that exist in a shared "tamagotchi matrix."

the virtual tamagotchis are even connected to the internet, and can be watched live: tamahive.spritesserver.nl/

Dump of the original Furby's assembly source code, dated June 1998: seanriddle.com/furbysource.pdf
Coolest thing I can think of to do with this would be to get it running in a virtual machine in some existing virtual space, eg an MMO, VR chat room, No Man's Sky etc. I love the idea of this thing's freaky digital soul living on in unrecognizably alien worlds.

Modern TV is so planning intensive and self aware, I think it's good to have a few things, even tiny ones, in your first few episodes that you just refuse to explain.
