"fuck around and find out" is really just kind of a good description of the only way i ever find anything out

Today I am "Unexpectedly makes the QuakeII jump sound getting out of my chair" years old

Calling all @matrix evangelists! An app project I've been lurking around has decided to move their chat room to Slack, for the usual reasons (network effect yada yada). I've already suggested having a matrix room as the central watercooler, and bridging to allow folks to join from their accounts on the proprietary silos. One of the tech folks has set up a MatterBridge (ironically to bridge Discord <> Telegram), but we can't figure out how to use it for matrix.

Please help!

Alright one more. These guys are kindof revered now - OGs of the Auckland punk scene in the late '70s.

AK79 was Re-released by Flying Nun for Record Store Day a while back, but they were mostly forgotten before that.

Story goes they wrote some of these songs on my mums piano in her flat circa 76/77




A bit of from ~10years back. Frontman used to work at the guitar store on Spring St. These guys went hard

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

oops if people are going to use something I'd better update rules to something more appropriate... 🤔

give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you'll still be giving him fish every day because "it's confusing" or "it's too hard" or "they were never supposed to be fishing" or "they really need this fish today" or "they were told they could contact you any time they need fish".

Hello, all. I'm #NewHere so here is my #introduction.

I’m a mild-mannered engineering type by day, and I dabble in drone ambient #music and #fieldrecording when spare time and motivation allow.

My music endeavors have been an on-again/off-again hobby of playing with #tracker programs since the early '90s with an Amiga 500. My current DAW of choice is #Renoise.

Lately, I have been working on #quadraphonic music and #ambisonic field recordings.

Started writing a client in the weekend.
No UI - just runs like a regular unix command with stdin/out, but has a bunch of context saved between runs so you can browse by giving it short arguments and/or relative paths.
Has simple input/output format conversion so it could work as like a proxy for delivering gemini to an http server. + i have some plans for caching in a way that'll keep versioned history of pages for archival stuff, and also a feature that'll inline supported links
