Looking for more in my everyday !

Still have a and account...

Birdsite I never even really use nowadays, and I never even post on Facebook. I don't know what's holding me back from deleting these accounts... well, I have family on Facebook, but nothing like that on twitter.

I kinda want to delete my facebook tho even if family is on there because family keeps posting stuff about causing . I only shake my head whenever I hear that.

Tips anyone?

I'm still working on replacing all my proprietary online services with open source/self-hosted solutions. It's harder than I thought, but I'm still halfway there. I've realized that I don't necessarily need my own cloud, but more of a single file hosting solution. takes care of most of my needs. The only problem is that the Freedombox image for raspberry pi 3, last time I tried it, crashed on me when I installed the server for a instance. To be fair, I was using the unstable.

Also we're starting a new one shot in this Sunday! Can't wait to get my elf sorceress casting all kinds of crazy spells on all the baddies! It's gonna be great!

So, there were a number of retro games I missed out on even when I had my Genesis. One of those was . I keep hearing good things about this series, mainly PSO. To be honest, the only Phantasy Star I've played was the original Phantasy Star Online for the . Also what about and ? I know Warsong is part of some other series... any other awesome Genesis/Master System RPGs I'm missing out on?

Hypercard was easy to use. Everyone who used it loved it. It was integral to many businesses daily operations.

Jobs killed it because he couldn't control it.

Microsoft doesn't ship any tools for building programs with their OS anymore, either.

They used to. There was a time when you could sit down at any windows or DOS machine and code up a program that would run on any other Windows or DOS machine.

But we can't have that anymore.

My nephew has an ipad.

He asked his dad how to write games. His dad didn't know. His dad asked me how to write games on an iPad. I told him not to bother.

My nephew asked me how to learn to write games.

I gave him a raspberry pi and a copy of pico 8.

Now he writes computer games.

He couldn't do that on his iPad.

The last 10 years of development in computers were a mistake. Maybe longer.

Instead of making computers Do More, or making them Feel Faster, we've chased benchmarks, made them more reliant on remote servers, and made them less generally useful. We brought back the digital serfdom of the mainframe.

#introduction #introductions

Hi, folks. I'm a deafblind hobbyist programmer with an interest in psychology, science, and the law. I am the secretary of the T-town chapter of the National Federation of the Blind and, as of this past weekend, the secretary/treasurer of the Oklahoma Division of Blind Students.

I'm presently working toward an associate's (I hope to obtain that this May) in psychology, with the intent of transferring to OSU-Tulsa this autumn or next spring. (I may get sucked into pursuing a compsci degree, not sure yet.)

I mostly play 4X games (Civ5-6, Stellaris) and some RPGs (Diablo III), but my primary focus for entertainment right now is literary in nature. Presently finishing up the Firekeeper Saga, by Jane Lindskold, but I'm always on the lookout for more work by Lois McMaster Bujold. I quite enjoyed Ann Leckie's Imperial Radch trilogy, as well. I do take recommendations; please don't suggest Heinlein or other scifi/fantasy authors with authoritarian leanings, though.

Other things: I am a strong believer in childhood literacy and in ensuring that blind children, especially, receive quality instruction in literacy. (A lot of schools, lately, think it's acceptable to give blind kids audiobooks and text-to-speech-enabled computers in lieu of Braille material. Unfortunately, you don't learn about punctuation, homonyms, or spelling when you consume audio-only information, and this creates a huge barrier to employment later on.)

Hypercard would be a perfect fit for the iPad and iPhone.

Imagine it!

Imagine the things you could build.

But we aren't allowed to have computers that are fun to use, that are easy to build for, that are human centric, or human literate.

PSA: there's a federated, well-known and well-implemented federated chat protocol out there with many working server and client implementations. It's called XMPP.ย 

Use it or be prepared to remake the same billion mistakes that has already been made.

Watching: twitch.tv/arcus87 Arcus play Dragon Warrior 2 for Gameboy! Come join us!

Playing through (Shin Megami Tensei) 4 right now. I'm about 3/5 of the way through. Love the SMT series, but the series, and school settings in general I kinda find boring. It's probably because I already lived through school once, I don't want to do it again haha. I'll still play through them so I can beat them though.

So our session was hilarious. Our party was completely wiped out by a .

Long story, but we had been turned into goblins by a for a test of a "museum" which featured attractions. One of those was re-enacting a scene from history. Of course, the let use make level 10 characters, and the sorcerer turned us back into our regular selves when fighting the Beholder.

Needless to say, even when we our regular selves, still couldn't beat him...

Reminder that there's nothing inherently wrong with liking anonymity and having anon accounts not tied to your RL identity in any way on masto or anywhere else on the internet

I hope we can not bring that shit mentality where anonymity = bad to mastodon, thankyouverymuch.

Good evening and the wider ! Played some today with friends and kicked butt with Kazuya, although shortly later I got my butt kicked by a Asuka player! Man I love games, always great fun to have tournaments with your buds. Anyways, today I saw an instance of setup and I thought that was awesome, eventually I'd like to setup my own instance of it. Lets keep fighting the good fight and not hand over our digital lives to and !

Good afternoon , the too! So I need to eventually make a one-shot for , and I heard there were several free one-shots available for free on the net? I dunno if I'd be any good at DMing, but I want to try it at least once! Hope everyone is doing well, and be sure to take care of yourself emotionally, physically and if you're religious, spiritually. I feel like I want to transform my SDF website, but I don't know what direction to take it in... anyways, later folks!

Also also, today I played more and it was great! I got some figures to paint last time and we're sure to paint them soon! The only thing was that we had a newbie again so while we were doing the game, we need to create a character for them. We got most of his character created except for the spells. Anyways, we defeated a land shark type monster and it's calves!
