I'm about to go back to my day job from my lunch break, but before I do I want to announce a little tool called .

It's a lightweight partial replacement for implemented in POSIX that uses by Ted Unangst to control your display's color temperature based on the time.

It's available on at <> under a 2-clause license.

You can run it in ~/.xsession, as a cron job, or in /etc/apm/resume.

Make no mistake. I'm proud to have written WITHOUT BLOODSHED and equally proud to have published it back in 2013, but it's rough and there's a lot I would have done differently if I were writing it today.

If you want to see what I mean, please read and bookmark this post. It's a WIP, but there's already a fair amount of stuff there.

If you're thinking of writing your first novel, please learn from my mistakes.

Trying to post using bitlbee-mastodon. Let's see if it works.

Is anybody else on @SDF accessing this instance via bitlbee-mastodon? I've followed the HowtoMastodon instructions as shown, but am stuck waiting for mastodon_oauth.

Is OAauth down because of the migration to v3?

This was one of the first websites I ever visited way back in the 1990s. Still going strong! \m/

This is a set of I put together back in 2013 when I dropped my first novel, it hit #1 on a few Amazon genre lists, and I thought I had a snowball's chance in hell at making it big.

@starbreaker @spelk I need to look at that, I loved Phantasy Star on the SMS



@starbreaker Cool. I have a book I started in Sphinx.. It seems pretty capable, but I don't have anything to compare it to :D

#CosmicStarHeroine is currently on sale 70% on US/EU #NintendoSwitch

It's a retro pixel art turn based #JRPG with #SciFi & #Cyberpunk leanings.

Unique characters, party builds, pixel art cut scenes & a cracking #soundtrack by #HyperduckSoundworks

Well worth investigating if you like 90's style #RPG #game

Software development isn't science or engineering. It's more akin to a skilled trade, like carpentry, plumbing, electrical work, or HVAC.

Here's a screenshot of my outline for /Never the Heroes/ open in Emacs in two panes showing two different parts of the file.

javascript is bad

i installed a javascript blocker a long time ago

if a website won't load at all without javascript, i don't use it!!

If you're running on , can you please tell me how, and possibly share a config? I've been RTFM'ing, but TFM seems Linux-specific. :)

But I'll deal with that tomorrow. It's late and I need my beauty sleep.

I've put together a half-assed port for bitlbee-mastodon. Now I just need to get bitlbee running so I can test the damn thing. :)

Can't be on #SDF com tonight because I have to pick up my son, but I'm not missing out on the #iwm on! 🎧🎶 #anonradio
