It's always odd to see something from Microsoft be open source. I had an idea years ago to make common symbols in programming languages be ligatures, but I never took the time to alter a free font I liked with them. Nice.

The font is too narrow, though. The m and w glyphs are incredibly cramped.

Alpaca painted in casein on paper. When practicing on my last one I painted a few other sheets of paper. I decided to paint this on one of them. Kind of looks like it's photobombing haha.

I know there are quite some #mastoadmin struggling with the disk space usage of the mastodon instance they maintain. The issue is not acknowledged enough and there are very few ways you can mitigate this using the official mastodon tools etc. Even better, often the proposed 'solution' is to 'get more disk space lol'.

Here's a compilation of recipes on how we try to deal with this for post.lurk.org as we learn by doing.

In general we document many parts of lurk.org on that wiki so that other collectives can use that information:

Casein sketch of a clownfish in my new tiny sketchbook. Practicing layering with casein as it seals like acrylic when it dries.

Hey #Fediverse. When you post pictures, please please please with puppies on top fill in that description box for the visually impaired. You will be helping us out tremendously. We want to enjoy your pictures as much as others do. You don't have to write a novel, but just fill in some details.

Thanks with much love:

Platformer mock-up with that magical fox critter.

I imagine it'd involve petrifying enemies and using them to solve puzzles mostly.

#Glimpse is a fork of GIMP with a moderized user interface - and a less offensive name to encourage usage also in professional environments. It is also somewhat related to the original project (developed also by some GNOME devs) and promises to work together with upstream developers.

"Here’s my hot take on this: fuck the algorithm, fuck the impressions, and fuck the king. I would rather trade those benefits and burn my website to the ground than be under the boot and heel and of some giant, uncaring corporation."

Fun fact: each book scanned for the Internet Archive has a unique identifier, usually the title of the item, or its first 16 characters; the volume number, or 00 if there isn't one; and the first 4 characters of the author. So:

Like how I must use these esoteric-looking generics to make it happy using mixins. At that point it becomes more a hinderance than a useful tool. It also has the effect of making the code more difficult to read which kind of defeats the purpose of wanting to use TypeScript in the first place.

Don't get me started on the time spent trying to guess what type names it expects from some built-in JavaScript things such as the DOM..

The thing I hate the most when writing complex things in JavaScript is the lack of typing and the... structure found in many languages. It simply becomes difficult to manage on things like web applications. I want strict types, private and protected properties/methods, traits/mixins, etc. TypeScript provides much of that, but when using it I find myself spending more time trying to work around its idiosyncrasies rather than actually coding.
