So, I've made a little proof-of-concept GNU Social webpage widget. It's kinda shaky, but it works. In theory, it should also work with Mastodon feeds.
But, it works on GNU Social installs, so at least that's progress!
(I'm working on making a functional test on my comic's site)
Upon glancing at the Wikipedia page for the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, I got as far as "The logo of the vulnerability" before I started wondering how the vulnerability's marketing team came to that logo and whether I should contact the vulnerability's PR department to learn more.
That's when I realized tech reporting was dead.
At first I was quite annoyed that Konsole began crashing on me out of the blue (though others have filed bugs with KDE for the same crash message). Then I remembered there's literally like hundreds of X-based terminal emulators for POSIX-ish systems, almost all of which fit the category of "good enough".
So, I'll just shuffle the deck and draw... ROXTerm. Yeah, a gnome-terminal-alike without GNOME dependencies should do.
I mentioned this on my other instance (still not sure how I'll manage these in the end), but the ten pages of the cold-open part of the Chapter Eight intro are done. The more traditional intro (wherein I detail some concept in the universe that will be explored in this chapter) is next, and then the chapter TRULY begins.
The bus rolls on! Everybody get on the bus!
Also, Proof 3 arrived. THIS time I think I've got it. The walls have the stronger darkening going on but the characters don't, which makes the whole thing pop a bit more. That oughta work. https://octodon.social/media/GVMWV7kvUHCtjGsJQP4
I didn't attend the University of Chicago. I've never even been TO the University of Chicago. I don't think I could name any pertinent information about the University of Chicago. But still, probably because it's a very very insane list, I've at least kept track of the University of Chicago Scavenger Hunt lists for years now. 2017's is up.
Hm... it might be simpler than I thought to make an embeddable widget for OStatus-like thingamajigs. Here I was looking around for a server API, when suddenly I remembered: Atom feeds. Right. Those exist for a reason.
There! Proof 2 has arrived. Much better colors, much better margins. Only, there's some weird scaling artifacts on the cover that I need to deal with. CreateSpace's oddball automated system strikes again, I guess... https://octodon.social/media/CpVCH4X2mDKzFlL5PLY
Thanks, latest version of Chromium, for letting me know there are printers on this network that can be added to Cloud Print. I work at a printer company, doing firmware work. Half the printers you found are probably fakes running on emulators that will cease to exist next time the dev needs to rebuild.
I code things and I also draw other things.
