Hi, I'm a homeschooling parent with an eclectic background who's done a few things with play by email games in my time, and more recently I've gotten really passionate about economic justice. I'm asexual novoromantic, 50 yo, and my gender feels like multiple open tabs in vim when you've just pressed ctrl-shift-v without checking that you're in the tab where you had insert mode on

request for income help and such, boosts welcome, etc 

hi all!

so, we're finally fucking moving by the end of this month (aaaaaaa)

we get some income from doing freelance contract projects for software dev and accessibility work, and we have some savings, but, like. extra income is always welcomed, especially when steadier through things like patreon, because we're disabled and the inability to work consistently is always looming over us, plus just, moving costs, medical costs, groceries, all of the things.

so like, short version, we'll be scraping by okay but like if you want to help out or spread this around, we'd appreciate it

weld.eerie.garden/support.html has all the ways you can support us, like patreon and paypal, with a wishlist. enter offer code 69!

we do digital glitch art, with commission info at weld.eerie.garden/art/commissi

we release music rarely and you can download it for free at red-onyx-music.xyz/the_weld_sy and consider tipping above if you like

Congrats on the new family member

I just heard from one of my prospective collab partners for the first time in awhile. Is there a way to get set up for game authoring without much infrastructure investment that won't be disruptive of your family time?

Iceberg cold take on Nietzsche 

What people think Nietzsche said: God is dead

What Nietzsche actually said: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?

What really happened: Nietzsche tried to talk God to death, but God escaped by hiding in Nietzsche's moustache

I was trying to find a visual artist to collab with for 3D ports of some open source games that were once played by email (or to design games), but I'm 0 for 3 so far...

🐢Homage to Seymour Paper and @mres@twitter.com for the amazing work on pedagogy done @MIT@twitter.com.

I took my first step programming, or rather discovering how to think with a computer, decades ago.

Now I hope to help others to have just as much fun with it as I do! Done in #VR with @MozillaHubs@twitter.com.

DM me if you would join a local Mastodon instance centered around kink in your community! I'm trying to gauge interest outside of London.

@50htz ahh I figured it out! My delivery queue was clogged up with redelivery attempts to a now-defunct test Immer and the default timeout settings meant it was pausing the whole delivery process for 2 minutes waiting for a response from the dead server each time. I lowered the timeout and it caught up. Now you should be able to see that we're friends if you go to immers.space/u/acenovo (from the same browser where you were logged in)

Where do I look for tooling to build for Immers Space? Mozilla Hubs? Are there any options suitable for self hosting (on my own hardware)? Asking for a friend (actually my 17 yo daughter)
