"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"
"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"
"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"
"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"
What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".
Question for non US people
Did you know we give all adults a number that determines what cars you can buy, where you can live and at many companies if you can be hired. This number was secret until we sued for the right to see it. In response companies made a secret second number they dont have to share that they can use for the same things.
The things that make the number bad include not having credit cards, not taking loans. To have a good number you have to have and use credit but not more than about 25% of the credit you have.
Most Americans think this is normal.
day 12: "moebius" (suggested by @cidney)
Interesting fact about the möbius strıp ıs that it actually only has a single surface. That wasn't the issue through. The execution issues mostly stemmed from the fact that flat paper as thin as it is, is NOT a 2-D surface. :D
Forgot to say last time but still accepting prompts on mastodon. :)
Does anyone have suggestions "problematic" SFF books or authors? Stuff that, if you walked into someone's house and saw their books on their bookshelf, would be a red flag that this person might be unsafe, but still have plausible deniability.
(for something I #amwriting)
Day 8. "Fiery Sun" and Day 9 "Tiger" (both suggested by @cidney)
the latter managed to involve reference images, if you can believe it.
I am still accepting prompts via mastodon. :)
Made a quick 16-color point-and-click adventure game for #LDJAM called "Dryad's Quest"!
I'm still pretty disgusted with what Google clearly thinks games "should" be about, when in theory, mobile should be a good platform for narrative games.
Oh, wow. Google Play blocked a game about surviving World War II for Nazi references. That's kind of missing the point.
#AGS ran in Wine at one point, right? Or had a workable GNU/Linux port? (Trying to compare how various adventure game engines handles cursor cycling, and managed to waste an hour getting nowhere.)
