With all the new people coming to Mastodon, I'll do another quick #introduction Show more

…I hate to be an Open Source Grouch, but I have never once had a Linux computer break in a literally unrecoverable way, while my first MacBook apparently needed a full disk wipe within six months.

I spent this morning at an Apple Store waiting for them to diagnose what was wrong with my work MacBook, which had somehow ended up on a loading screen that alternated between saying "200% complete" and "2 of 1" with no further explanation. (We ended up just doing a fresh OS install.)

a good way to announce that you got a sweet new car is, "just call me Gloria Mundi, 'cause I got some sick transit."

The colors right now are mostly for me, to help me remember which things I've converted to use the semantic markup. I'll probably keep some colors, but use a more conservative color scheme in the final product, and with the intention that the pages should still look fine in black-and-white.

I've been doing a frankly unnecessary amount of prep for a Dungeon World game I'm planning to run, which has involved reworking parts of the core rules and playbooks. So—naturally!—I'm also rewriting the core playbooks in LaTeX with an unnecessary amount of semantic markup to indicate move names, move conditions, tags, spell names, &c.

If you create a webcomic, podcast, fanfiction, or other web-published creative work, could you fill out this short survey for me? Thanks! (boosts appreciated!)

The metallic-gel-pen-on-black-paper plotter experiments continue. I love how these are turning out.

Today's plotter experiments involved metallic gel pen on black paper, and I'm really loving the effect of this (although I clearly need to experiment more with line pressure.)

Here's a big map plot I did today. I'm not super happy with some of the style features, but it's definitely a start.

I've started plotting simple random geometric images from a little crap library I've thrown together. It's really satisfying to watch code like this turn into physical drawings.

My AxiDraw showed up today! So far, I've just tried little things, but over the weekend, I plan to do larger plotter-ey experiments.

I have finally resolved to get a plotter—leaning towards the larger AxiDraw—and I am real excited about dipping back into algorithmic art, which I sadly haven't been doing for a while now.

I was watching something long on YouTube last night and stopped it to sleep. I resumed the video at the airport this morning, and it started playing mid-sentence with someone saying, "…the only way is to juice a space-weasel."

I should write a Unix utility that runs in the background and plays Neil Cicierega music. I would of course call it lemond.

(To be clear, I do very much enjoy Overwatch-the-game as it exists! But I would also love to somehow explore or experience the world in other ways.)
