I heard @starbreaker refer to the federated timeline as "drinking from the firehose" and this is exactly what came to mind:

Running Hypercard in MinivMac, and it's a lot smoother than it was in Basilisk II, while less smooth than it was in Sheepshaver.

I still haven't decided which one I like most, although minivmac seems to be the easiest to work with.

And, of course, Archive.Org has some good hypercard resources: archive.org/details/HyperCardV

Gather around children and let me regale you with one of the finest #anime series to come around these parts

Yuru Camp (ゆるキャン) or Laid-Back Camp is an anime about camping and much more. There's an irresistible allure of nature, solitude, contentment, and many other feelings that come along with spending the night outdoors. I know this because camping is one of my favorite things to do

This will be a #LiveToot

So... Hospitality Antwerp.

Liked: Keeno, Etherwood, London Elektricity, Danny Byrd, Metrik, Logistics.

Disliked: the security staff confiscating my weed fifteen minutes in.

Metrik - Fatso VIP // youtube.com/watch?v=ILAzIY89pu // drum'n'bass // UK // 2017 // I absolutely love the original version but this one has such a different feel to it with that almost Sub Focus bassline and the deadmau5 -esque synths that it qualifies as an another track altogether in my book. Also: I'll be at Hospitality Antwerp tomorrow where Metrik will be spinning, can't wait!

Meanwhile, in Cities Skylines...
(bear with me, I'm a clueless newbie)

When it comes to communicating communist ideas I feel like it'd be more effective if instead of saying "private property" we said "remote ownership" or "ownership on paper" or "economic property" or "corporate property" or "for-profit property"

Cuz like what we mean is "you can't own a house you don't live in" "you can't own a business others work in" "You can't own land others live or work on"

And I think in the 21st century "private property" just doesn't evoke that meaning

Silicon Valley is dominated by guys like Zuckerburg who lack this historical perspective and it is sad and a bit dangerous. The only world they know is post-9/11 where valuing privacy is often viewed with suspicion and are taught by those in power that surveillance keeps us safe and secure.

Add to that the only Internet they've ever known is one being monetized almost completely by targeted advertising?

Seems society has failed a whole generation.

This is amazing, we evolved the alphabet from pictograms to highly stylized characters to letters and now we're going full circle by incorporating emojis such as 🐂 that thousands of years earlier became "a" and 🐟 that became "d"

Had missed that Monolord released a new album.

That cover artwork is pretty neat. Music's good too.

Holy lol

I played the crap out of Escape Velocity and enjoyed it more than I ever did Elite but I didn't realise it was literally made by someone who had never played Elite and based on what he'd read about it mastodon.social/media/beRzFo_B

It's my pleasure to announce htop 2.2.0! hisham.hm/htop/

Includes Solaris support, bugfixes and features for many platforms (Linux improvements, macOS High Sierra OS bug detection, OpenBSD battery reading, --tree option)

Many thanks to the awesome community!

And it's finished! Or, as finished as it's gonna get, at any rate, I'm sure I could find a dozen or fifty little spots I've missed or things to tweak.

Anyway, after sitting on my freakin' hard drive at 90% finished for months and months, I finally got my butt in gear and got my big ol' octopus buddy done.

Feels good, man.

"A lawless and mistrustful world where self-interest is the only principle and paranoia is the only source of safety is a not a paradise but a crypto-medieval hellhole."

The problem is not the blockchain per se, but rather the assumption that countless self-interested parties can eventually create a working system (spoiler: they can't). Trusting the transactions is not enough, you need to trust the people. And what better way to build trust than a #cooperative?

i wanna do a short film where i interview tech bro pc gamer youtubers about the, like, metaphysical implications of their work and how computers are this fundamentally abstract mathematical idea but by showing me how to upgrade my graphics card they're both lending the ethereal a corporeal dignity but also fomenting it in a culture & system of judgments entirely unrelated to the metal & fiberglass & plastic itself

Skyrim Exploration Suite // youtube.com/watch?v=xWtfo9kuRT // More than an hour of ambient music from Skyrim, complete with the ambient sounds of its wilderness.

I've been here a whole year, those who said this social network wouldn't last more than a couple weeks were right after all.
