anybody knows why scifi.fyi has been giving an error page for the last couple of weeks?

might be a good idea to put the account name in here, too, even though it's in my profile already: @tmo

I've just made an account on the scifi.fyi mastodon instance (actually glitch-soc). I'll soon export my follows from here over to the other instance, if you're wondering what's up with that: that's up with that.

randomly googled for live and found this: beesbuzz.biz/blog/636-Federate

It suggests discovery/announcement of streams via ActivityPub, hosting HLS playlists via a regular HTTP server, putting segments onto IPFS for VOD as well as DVR and mentions ActivityPub or IRC for the chat.

I haven't played with IPFS at all yet, though. I wonder how the $1/streamer/hour figure might have changed since then, and if maybe being "avant garde" with video/audio codecs could help things …

SDL2_TTF uses structs passed by-value in the API and that makes me kind of sad. well, bumped up the priority of implementing that for moarvm just a little …

is there nothing on the 'net that'll just let me plop a png in my browser and try upscaling it with all the different pixel art scaling filters that are commonly found in emulators and such? :\

Finally caught up on all the questions in our tumblr inbox and ask.krita.org...

Adobe did a price change and that naturally doubles the amount of #krita related questions people have.

(If you wanna help out, make an account at identity.kde.org and use that to answer questions at ask.krita.org or on the krita subforum at forum.kde.org. I am not kidding, this helps a ton!)

Who would you rather fight:

- One Hundred Little Endian Chickens
or
- One Really Big Endian Chicken?

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.

hi all!

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).

I've written and just published today's post!

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 :blobcat:

soooo... can't you backup your whole tumblr most effectively by asking them to give you "all data they have about/from you" via GDPR-inspired request?

not really a way to put image descriptions "on" images you just link to …

though of course the image at that url might change at any moment, so *shrug*?

PSA: if you use a screen reader and someone doesn't caption their images, it's :valid:​ to ask what the image is.

PSA: if someone asks what an image is, it's :valid: to tell them even if you didn't post the image.

ooh i could play rainy mood on my phone while under the shower for an extra relaxing experience!

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
