What's your main communication channel at work?

Giving @StartpageSearch a go only to realise I'm adding g! suffix to almost every query out of habit, ugh

Sooooo have dropped a pretty big bollock over there (context below). You were supposed to be the good guys, DDG!

There’s always @StartpageSearch, but are they any better? Plus, that purple colour 🤮

Brave is owned by an utter dickhead. Plus, cryptononsense…

Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

If you have a macro lens lying around and wanna give #astrophotography a try, it's totally doable! I took the image below of the Milky Way with a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens & a Canon 6D. I don't have a tracking mount, so this is a stack of 20 x 5 seconds untracked images.

Macro lenses have great image quality and large apertures that let through a lot of light. The main drawback for astrophotography is that focusing at infinity can be finicky.

I have 500 svg files, each with doodle paths like pictured below. Total size is around 13 megabytes. I'd like to merge them into one, but stacking vectors on top of each other, removing redundant points where they overlap, so the output is hopefully smaller. Is there a tool that would do it for me?

It's remarkable how far we've come. Sure there are warts and issues abounding but just take a moment to appreciate where we're at and how far we've come.

EGA self portrait for Pixel Joint a while back. Was really fun working with stark colors of the EGA palette! #pixelart #ega #pixel

A week left and I'm going to start my sabbatical. The plans involve sleeping, running, having coffee in the sun, swimming in cold water and making some primitive garden furniture. Also fiddling with godot or something else, but with screen time limit set at 2h/day. Very excited.

The notion that food dropped on the floor is safe to eat only as long as it's picked up within five seconds.

Another Mockup from a Game Boy Advance project I worked on in the early 2000s. The half burried bell was never used. You can download the prototype demo of this game, to use with a GBA emulator or Flashcart here: gbadev.org/demos.php?showinfo= #PixelArt #MastoArt #art
