Now that that's official, I should do a re-#introductions:
Hi, I'm Spencer! I do a bunch of things; often with programming, sometimes with games, and almost always on a computer. Check my website for some of that. On Mastodon, I'm known for my bots @doctormccoy and @domainhacker, an emoji importer script, the little 🗨️ in the corner of Glitchsoc statuses, for being a geometric shape, and for the dont_at_me emoji.
Hi. I made a game (finally). Play it if you'd like:
It should only take a minute or two, and should run in your browser or on your phone.
Here are some of my political beliefs, in no particular order:
• De-fund the military
• End war
• De-militarize the police force
• Make the top tax bracket 100%
• Fund public schools
• Ban all guns
• Ban bump stocks
• Ban extended mags
• Ban semiauto
• Ban rifles
• Eliminate the death penalty
• Stop making games with guns in them
there are lots of others but these are the non-obvious ones
I figured the rearranged palette would need to have perceptually similar colors close together, so that errors introduced in compression wouldn't change the color much. And the former part worked well: just look at those smooth gradients in the palette. The theory didn't turn out though: that remapped *introduced* a lot of sharp gradients into the image.
Here's the thing... and I say this as a recovering sexist and homophobe.
Just because you're a bigot today doens't mean you have to be one tomorrow. You *can* be better. No one is perfect, but you can learn and grow. It's one the best things about being a human being.
The problem with whiteness isn't racism in and of itself. It's that white people *refuse* to learn and change. They still carry the same attitudes from 4 centuries ago.
We see that at play on the fedi everyday.
Seriously, though -- hashtag your stuff a lot. It's not like Twitter where they're barely functional -- since Mastodon doesn't do arbitrary string search, it functions much more like Tumblr/Pixiv/NND tags where they give you *exactly* everything tagged with it, which makes it SUPER easy to look for art and other creative stuff tagged with it once the federated network is big enough
