For the holidays, you could say thank you to some of the people who write free software you use, especially software that isn't hugely popular.
Those of us who write little-known software may go for months without hearing from a user, and it can be a little de-motivating.
Hearing from someone who actually uses one's software gives an energising jolt that can carry one through several weeks of darkness and cold and wet.
discord and accessibility Show more
so, discord appears to have remade their feedback page, in the process erasing all the old issues and their upvotes.
so we're gonna make the call for people to please, if you have a discord account, upvote this issue https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360032435152-Discord-Accessibility-for-blind-users so that maybe discord's asshole devs will finally make it actually accessible for screen readers
also @ developers, make your shit accessible from the ground up
in the spirit of December and also the fact that I was dirt poor this time last year and remembering how much it sucked i couldn't do much to enjoy myself, I wanna get somebody a copy of Smash Ultimate.
You don't need to boost or any of that shit unless you want people to see it and a get chance. Just fave this status and I'll pick at random on like...I dunno, Sunday. The only caveat is that you'd get the code/copy on the 10th (Since! that's when I get paid, lmao).
It's about cellular automata!
It has links where you can run the code right in your browser and experiment with it!
I hope you'll like it. Please tell me what you think
A reminder that this Black Friday, rather than putting on an enormous sale, @itchio will be donating their entire revenue share from all sales on the site to a pair of LGBTQ+ and climate change charities
@Gargron actuall, all embedded toots are too tall, not all the same height, though. It could have something to do with my browser's zoom level being at 150% by default?
anyway i can't reproduce it any more, so ... bleh.
@Gargron i just saw the "how to become a successful artist on mastodon" and the first toot that's inlined is for some reason 14k pixels tall, so there's an awful lot of scrolling needed to get past it …
Here's actually a second blog post about my #perl6 #moarvm grant: a comparison of the deliverables/inchstones I had in the original proposal vs the current state. It's a little less exciting than my usual report style, but it does have screenshots :)
watch out, though. one of them is like 16 megs big …
I don't quite know what #thunderbird is thinking when it renders these huge green blobs …
Rakudo.js update - it has been merged into master (plus 6pad unveiling) #Perl6
Only works on latest Chrome/Chromium ATM
Today's random fun #perl6 project: bind a tiny library to control this tiny LCD "picture frame", just blit random squares on the screen.
Perl 6 dude from Karlsruhe, Germany. he/him
