@karroffel oh thanks for the link. I posted a screenshot of my woes. :D

@SciFiGameDev the problem with Godot is that you just can't see anything not the color per se.

Has there been a larger discussion about this? If I submitted a PR with a default grey that's useful would it just be "lolno"?

Any Godot users know why the default in 3d is to have a useless blue material?

It's currently not possible to just hop into Godot and greybox an idea. :(

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program

For one brief shining moment in the 1980s-1990s, it seemed like we the people would own and control our own computing infrastructure.

That we wouldn't ever after need permission from opaque central authorities to process data, send messages, create devices, teach machines ideas. No corporations or governments could put themselves between us and the data bits in our machines. We would be free to think.

That moment is rapidly slipping into a history that feels ridiculously over-optimistic.

Kinda feeling like I post on Mastodon only occasionally, and my posts here are almost like condensed versions of things I've been posting about for a week on Twitter. Whatever the one most dominant thing I have to say is.

Anyway, just signing on here today to say: Wow, I do not like Android Studio. Like, I just dislike it very much.

@mcc @_discovery and of course, the converse is that cargo doesn't even support the entire spectrum of what rustc can do. So less common linker situations are both impossible to build with cargo *and* monumentally challenging and frustrating to build without cargo.

@mcc @_discovery and after that, try it using a cross target such as aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu :D

@mcc @_discovery the explosion of dependencies is... Terrible. And do try building any common crate that uses compiler plugins using something other than cargo.

@mcc @_discovery any thoughts on bintray/Conan ? Personally I think we shouldn't go too deep into packages and dependencies until that horror of "a common build system is taken care of". You could argue it's Cmake (which I use) but that isn't uncontroversial.
On the other hand, Cargo is cool and all, but the mono culture around it troubles me a bit. Functionality of rustc and how to leverage it all gets folded into cargo rather than considered as part of a broader ecosystem.

Youtube is the world's most horrifyingly effective engine for luring naive men into reactionary politics but it can't tell after years of me telling it otherwise that I want to watch cute animal videos but never ever ever want to see a video of an animal being hurt or hurting someone.

We took the kids to the King Tut exhibit at the LA Science Center the other day; it felt like walking through the design doc for a bestselling roguelike based on the Ancient Egyptian afterlife.

@technomancy Yeah man, Deepness in the Sky was a *radical* opening. So many thoughts and so much action. Then it kinda teetered around. By the end I just sorta felt *helpless*. But honestly in a good way.
I never read the other story but I'd love to read more stories with some of these core concepts.
