The new Chrono Romancer EP, Krieger, is available for download on bandcamp and streaming on all major streaming platforms!
(Just search for "Chrono Romancer" 😃 )

My wife, our friends, and I worked hard to make this happen. Give it a listen!

I'm still looking for a good instance to post it up on...

I have a sudden odd inspiration to write songs inspired by peeps I follow here on Mastodon; just name each track by their username and see what happens...

OwnCast is a free open source self-hostable streaming platform, basically a libre alternative to Twitch, and also currently testing Fediverse support too! :blobcool:

There's more info about it on its website at

The project is looking for help running an OwnCast dedicated Fediverse account. (There is currently a bot at @owncast but this just provides automated posts about streamers.)

If you think you can help with this, or want to be involved with the project in any other way, get in touch with OwnCast here:

The project lead is on the Fediverse at @gabek

As #Signal has had severe problems recently due to its centralised nature, here are some decentralised libre alternatives with Fediverse accounts:

➡️ @snikket_im - Initiative to give XMPP a consistent look and feel on instances and apps, to make it more attractive to new users

➡️ @xmpp - XMPP standards foundation

➡️ @delta - Decentralised messaging through email

➡️ @matrix - Best known for the Element client

➡️ @briar - Peer-to-peer encrypted messaging

➡️ @Jami - Peer-to-peer Skype alternative

#Hacktoberfest is coming up! If you want to contribute to a fun open source project, but don't want to be limited in participating in a technical way, #Owncast might be a good fit!

One thing that we could use some help with right now is community management type things. Social accounts, chatting with people, you know the drill.

If you're into streaming, and into open source, but not necessarily just the code, say hi!

I don't understand why using the Manjaro GUI package manager runs out of space when trying to upgrade, but `sudo pacman -Syu` in the terminal doesn't...

Here is my article about what just happened:

In my Emacs bar at work today:

`Query replace in region gender with: sex`

I'm thinking, "Come on, SCIENTISTS 🙄"

But as I type this I realize... we probably grouped self-reported gender from some studies together with biological sex in other studies 😵

Now the question is: what do I label this grouping of self-reported gender and biological sex? Is there a single accurate term to represent both...

note: while we collected this metadata, we don't really even use it so it's not a critical field

you might catch:

Blizzard the cat
places in Oslo
lo-fi + talk radio
streaming experiments

streams with Blizzard may be very short since you can’t tell cats what to do

Also trying out which is really easy to get started with! Setup took no time with their install scripts and I was doing a test stream from OBS within a few min of getting the software running.

Weird, but pipewire seems to rely on pulseaudio management apps (pamixer, pavucontrol, etc.) to manage it. But it's pipewire running behind it all..

I was wondering the same, after a thread of praise surfaced this week on hackernews :D

My question: Can pipewire remember my output device? Or at least not reset the output to the mic (which is a poor output device)? :D

I dumped Pulse/Jack and installed Pipewire (via manjaro-pipewire package). Now, how do I do anything? Pipewire tools is a blank page

I'm the kind of dude who bites his lip eating soup.
