Wow. I clicked on this video just because of the look of this vintage WWII Ludwig drum kit. Because it was war time, it has very little metal on it, and lots of wood. How cool is this kit?
so apparently froggyme was talking to Leonard Tramiel, Jack Tramiel's son. His father Jack founded Commodore Intl and later Atari Corp! He was trying to get Leonard to get an SDF account! 😝 froggyme is SDF's representative at the Vintage Computer Festival West happening right now at the Computer History Museum, Mountain View, CA
The Starship Troopers 'Would You Like To Know More' pattern represents an interesting & common failure mode in hypertext: semantically-meaningless totally linear link trails that only serve to increase 'engagement'/'interactivity'/ad impressions. Very commonly made by people who don't understand hypertext enough to know what the point of it is.
Maybe some of you younger people can chime-in on this. E-mail, to me, seems legitimate, customary, professional, etc., but when people contact me about work via DeviantArt, Instagram, Tumblr, or some other proprietary messaging platform, my first impression is that that is a tacky, amateurish, informal way to reach me about anything you want me to take seriously. It's not like I make it hard to find my email address! Am I old fashioned in thinking this way?
Man, I am having to do a lot of research and tweaking to get decent response out of a Wacom Bamboo active stylus and this little ASUS notebook I picked-up a month ago. I know that I should not expect the same responsiveness from this setup as I've become accustomed-to over ~18 years of of Wacom Intuos/Pro gear, but the out-of-the-box performance of this pen/digitizer on Debian is nowhere near acceptable for my variety of illustration work.
"You can't change GIMP's name, it's got 20 years of branding behind it!"
...I know. 20 years of TERRIBLE branding. I love free software and I love #GIMP, but I have always hated telling people outside of the profession that the software I use for illustration is called GIMP. I'm sure Kimball and Mattis thought it was funny when they were in college, but the fact that the name hasn't changed since then astounds me.
