I think SUPERHOT is the only game I'm interested in playing in VR so I can do slow Matrix style movements and feel extremely cool

I'm really lovin' this newly discovered filter "Blur > Video" 😅💦 just updated my homepage banner with an image file using this filter 👍👍 looks kind of ish tbh 😅💦 LOL Ive been overusing that term recently 🔥 (snowdusk's homepage is here 👉 snowdusk.sdf.org)

i'm fed up with @SDF VoIP service blocking outbound calls for appropriately-registered and up-to-dues subscribed members.

as much as i hate complaining as an end-user, i've suspicion that being cool and accepting no response of any kind with a "well they must be soooo busy" grain of salt is not healthy for anyone involved, especially after about two years of gently bumping the issue and not once hearing back even so much as a "we're not going to fix that."

so what can we do to get this fixed!?

watching a new derren brown film entitled which seems similar to his except where in the latter a subject is aggressively persuaded to push a living breathing person to their death, and in the former a subject is aggressively persuaded to take a bullet for a complete stranger belonging to a group against which they began with intense bias.

this is such a treat to me. i couldn’t be derren brown on account of ethics &or low confidence. so to watch what he’ll do is enthralling.

"you’ve gotta stat romanticizing your life. you gotta start believing that your morning commute is cute and fun, that every cup of coffee is the best you’ve ever had, that even the smallest and most mundane things are exciting and new. you have to, because that’s when you start truly living. that’s when you look forward to every day."

This is my favorite thing today: faxtoy.net/

"Random Stuff Sent From Your Fax Machine"

while putting together my new sdf web index, i stumbled on this gorgeous-to-me map of my project which is a multi-user commonlisp repl. one could imagine an irc channel in which each user a) has their own repl b) can issue forms for evaluation in a shared repl, moderated by the owners of the channel ... so it's a social and real-time programming environment of the most lofty and idealistic variety i have yet been capable of to imagine.

something that messes with my head: dr. hawking says there is no god. check. dr. hawking says there are definitely aliens and we shouldn’t contact them. check. dr. hawking says man-made artificial intelligence is a huge threat to humanity. ch... nah man.. ever use google translate? so: there’s a god but no aliens? or there’s a god and aliens but they’re aliens we should talk to? hey alexa add dr. hawking’s new book to my shopping li — oh you already debited it and pushed it to my ipad? cheers!

I'm doing a lot of experimental writing, and here is a mini-essay-thread, a part one to an ongoing series titled, "Making a website". Um, , I guess.

Anyhow, here's the thing: talkgroup.xyz/t/making-a-websi

And you know, interact with me, folks. If you are on the forums, ask questions or offer corrections. Same on Mastodon, I will incorporate it all together, because that's my gift to you. ^_^
