So, for the lovers/nostalgists out there that also happen to be running , here is what I hope to be straightforward installation instructions for Homeworld SDL:

github.com/ThibaultLemaire/Hom

To the extent of my testing the game is fully playable, save a few graphical glitches that I'd like to fix, so if you know someone good at C and x86_64 Assembly...

Feedback and boosts highly appreciated 🙂

There's this 'low-tech website' that's been going around Reddit / HN for a while, and that's great and all. solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2018

I want to nitpick exactly one thing, which is that they dither all their images. My argument is that the dithering is less effective than normal JPEG compression, and they should admit that it's just an aesthetic thing that looks cool but wastes bytes.

My whole comment with numbers is here:

Home-made drone:

Laser-cut wood as a frame, Arduino as a flight controller, gyroscope from a Wii controller.

The rest is off-the-shelf: motors, ESC controllers, RC equipment.

Saying "I'm not going to read the code so it's okay if it's not free/open-source" is like saying "I don't vote so it's okay if not everyone is allowed to"

PSA for schools: Google is not your friend. Google does not want to help you learn. Google collects data on your students and they have no option to opt-out. You sign contracts on their behalf that sign their data away to massive companies who have no accountability. Attending public school is not a choice, and you should not force students to use spyware without their explicit consent. You should not base entire classes on proprietary spyware.

"Why so late?" you say

But of course because "world war III" happened in the meantime.

Don't they teach you that at school?

Here for example :

last_resort("First man on mars").isoformat()

Not sure if most Mastodon :mastodon: website users know this but you can create custom columns in Mastodon with just a selection of the people you follow. The feature is called Lists. To access click on the three horizontal bars with tooltip text 'Getting Started'. Then click on Lists and add just the people you want. You can create multiple lists if needed. I know some people read the manual but others don't. You can also see all your favourited items in one place
