LB: I have a couple of things in that show, and would love to be able to go to the talk. Mattie Brice is really sharp and you should check out her writing if you haven't

And Jeremy Penner has a great DIY spirit, and started my favorite website Glorious Trainwrecks. Does good work around preserving and documenting little-known game stuffs.

This Saturday at 8:30PM there's a talk between @SpindleyQ and Mattie Brice as part of the currently-running Glorious Trainwrecks X Babycastles exhibition.

If you're near New York City and into amateur game making it's probably very worth checking out.

hot take, former w.t users Show more

Really craving a big pretty book of dense, tabley, Japanese web design.

Not having any luck finding something to add to my wishlist, anyone know of one?

Damn the add pseudo account thing in Subway Tooter is so handy, especially as an instance admin.

Gives you an easy way to see local timelines of different places.

It's four in the morning, Show more

Oh shit, git!

Git is hard: screwing up is easy, and figuring out how to fix your mistakes is fucking impossible. Git documentation has this chicken and egg problem where you can't search for how to get yourself out of a mess, unless you already know the name of the thing you need to know about in order to fix your problem.

So here are some bad situations I've gotten myself into, and how I eventually got myself out of them in plain english*.

Today's lesson: Medium is bad. They've suspended our account and blocked access to all our published stories for bogus reasons and with only 12 hours notice.

Hihi Masto! Curious to see if there are any #retro #gamedev folks on here. Even if you haven't done any real dev work and are just interested in old hardware, let's be friends! Maybe form a small community too?

Please boost!

Pictured: Some of the engine stuff I've been working on.

Uggggggh. Got mugged last night.

Phone's the only thing I lost. Have a cut on my jaw, but otherwise I'm fine.

Making me glad I don't keep too much important stuff on my phone, but if anyone's got a Linux TOTP program recommendation that'd be super handy today.
