I think it's beautiful how imperfections make art. Software developers work really hard to add imperfections to art programs and CGI, because humans can sense when something is too perfect; we're made uncomfortable by it.

We love the grit and grain of the page and the graphite. The rough and irregular edges of ink and chalk. The imprecision of the human hand.

Don't be perfect. Be you. That's what people want. That's art.

I don’t agree with everything here, but in broad strokes, this author gets it! Programmers need to do better.

I love that the default Emacs scratch buffer text got into Mario Golf (GBC) somehow. I wonder if this was a mis-copy-and-paste from a developer, or if it was another case of a compiler taking random memory contents and using them for padding in the ROM...

The greatest lesson I’ve learned in my life is that when I’ve said something to offend or hurt someone, even if it’s unintentional, to just apologize, the same way that if I accidentally stepped on your toe I would automatically say, “Oh, I’m sorry! Are you ok?”

(Rather than, “That wasn’t my intention and I didn’t do it on purpose, so you can’t be hurt. Your foot is feeling things that aren’t there! The pain isn’t real because I’m not a foot stepper! *That* person’s foot doesn’t hurt!”)

I got tired of being asxed the question, so I've finally done it:
I've created a merge request of my Tango Arrow brush into mainstream #GIMP.

It's a brush. In the shape of an arrow. It will solve literally 65% of all GIMP questions I get.

I doubt GIMP commits are merged based on popular vote, but if you agree that this is a sorely needed addition, go give this merge request a boost.

Still have no houseplants here yet. Unless onions count. Do onions count?

Also random advice – any shop-bought veggies which are literally entire plants, like green onions, lemongrass, or broccoli, can be kept in some water and they'll last much longer.
