I will plug us in

We are a small, great, flexible place to work, there's no "management", plenty of freedom, transparent salary system, we are doing actually important and useful work.

We could really use some people and some people could really use relocation.

(boosts welcome)

@djsundog @thegibson Im starting a new one. Its called Cynergize! Its great because the teams can operate collectively while I have daily 4 hr meetings with all the managers. Its basically that wrench throwing scene from dodgeball but I scream "Synergize!" Between wrenches.

My current electric wheelchair is worn out and actively dangerous, and so unreliable I don’t trust it to even work. I’ve started a gofundme to buy a new lightweight modern one. I’ll be grateful for any donations, or just a share if that’s what you can do.

Hey, fedi.

I've got a talk lined up for #SummerSchool2022.

On Sunday, 31 July 2022 at 0200 hours UTC (7:00pm Pacific), I'll be doing a talk on using #Python to parse user input.

The Summer School talk format is 15 minutes presenting/45 for questions, so this'll be a #speedrun.

More details to come as @SummerSchool posts details.

Please boost?

Studio dates booked for the first Doctor Deathray and her Implements of Destruction album!!!

I have an important announcement regarding

I will be shutting down this instance by the end of this year. The following thread will share some context.

This absolutely fascinating. A "lost" and possibly accidental method of making a solar panel 40 years earlier than previously believed and significantly more sustainable to build as well as totally recyclable.

I'm getting ready to build the set for the office that Jack and Fat Jimbo share in Expedition Sasquatch (The Television Show).

We're going to do a conspiracy board, and lots of non-descript tracking equipment, as well as Jack's Tandy 1000 and a couple of Sony Mavicas.

For the conspiracy board, and for general set dressing, I want to do up a lot of photos and illustrations related to bigfoot and other cryptids.

I'll be using the full Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwood spread, and a blown up version of the faked 8mm footage of bigfoot with some extraneous red circles scattered around.

I'm also adding a meditating bigfoot, and some walking bigfoots, and some acoustic panels (he is a podcast host after all) and some copies of his book "We Can and Must Find and Kill Bigfoot"

What other things might I need in this bigfoot hunter's office?

Does anyone know the name of this song, and who made it? I found this 06:51 instrumental on an old MiniDisc, the track is named "?/?" because the owner probably didn’t know. Shazam returns no results, nor does an AcoustID check find it

Our #makerspace is getting ready to give workshops. The "clean room" can be used for #arduino and #raspberrypi, presentations or just hanging out. Soon there will be #3dprinting in here, too.

Saw this weird thing at a vintage market today. It's a film slide viewer and turntable combo.

East German clone of a Siemens teletype has a four row keyboard and a third Cyrlic striking positions on the typebars.

Ohhh holy shit it’s alive IT’S ALIVE and hasn’t let out any magic smoke yet! For context, this is a Commodore Amiga 1080 monitor that fell off a shelf and had a corner of the case bashed and the PCB cracked

The #prohibitionOrcs campaign is, somehow, at $8893?

Only $1106 to go to achieve MAXIMUM TAUNTING OF author Ron Collins, who really wants the $10k orc baseball story. Me, I really want to get to $9999... and stop right there.

I just backed Restoring The 'Mutt & Jeff' Cartoons on Kickstarter

This is very much my shit, and I want to see it happen.

Info on minetest online is poisoned by age. I can't find anything about current mob mods, for example, because everything I find is from 2012.

So anything you know about running a public minetest server would be welcome.

Minetest Question:

Is there a good way for me to generate voxel images outside of minetest and import them?

Or pre-generated villages that I can import?
