Hey friendos! Ottawa Processing Day 2019 is over, which means my talk is done, which means I can experience joy again instead of just anxiety about giving my talk.
Please find attached this image of the Tilde Town Time Service that ran back in November 2017.
It's really more of an artists rendition - as it was created post-facto - but I actually built a working speaker amplifier on breadboard for authenticity reasons.
Running Motif WM on my workbench Raspberry Pi while I write an image for a _different_ Pi. #motifgang
That image is https://www.flickr.com/photos/insomnike/28656418624/in/photostream/ but reduced to an 8 colour (3 bit) palette with one 64x64 blue noise reference file to use as a threshold map. I add 3px and 7px of offset for green and blue channels, respectively.
TTW friends: We are on 3.3.0, with the new audio/video player (which pops out so audio doesn't stop when you scroll), gemini scheme links, and more! https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.3.0 #admin
I'm pretty excited for the new Masto version and will get TTW updated in the next few days. Along with native support for new URL schemes (like Gemini!), it has follower synchronization, which might help fix the fact that some instances think they follow people on TTW but TTW doesn't think that they still exist.
(Also some improvements around inline video, which might also improve the inline audio player? Looks like a banger of a release).
Is posting on Mastodon when you've updated your Gemini the new posting on Twitter when you've updated your Moveable Type blog?
Anyway, wrote up the rationale for my next project to build a luggable cyberdeck -- I'll probably need to reference a bunch of things on the big web and include images, so this will probably go to my actual blog or ~insom once I have my act together https://proxy.vulpes.one/gemini/soviet.circumlunar.space/insom/2020-12-29-Now.gmi
Also posted to a new Gemini capsule -- gemini://soviet.circumlunar.space/insom/2020-12-24-SSR.gmi -- and earlier in the day to `feels` and I also archived most of my ~town space, moving it off the server and starting with a fresh and clear home directory (except for the brutal Python scripts that update `modified.html` -- banged out in a single lunch break but working unmodified for 5 years 😤)
Gave the tildeverse* recently updated list its first new coat of paint since October 2015 over at https://tilde.town/~insom/modified.html

need to 'edit toot' to add "my wife" 🇰🇿
#looptober number 6: doesn't loop and it's nearly December edition. Third upload, because even basic mastering is beyond me and clipping. Played live on Circuit over a programmed Volca Beat ... beat.
And we're done again. Let's all agree to leave things alone for a little bit

ttw is the unofficial Mastodon instance of tilde.town. We're only smol, but we're friendly. Please don't be a dick.
