My favorite RPG character I ever made was a skeleton paladin who was formerly a thrall to an evil necromancer. He was forgotten by the necromancer in a small town somewhere, and had no memories. After working on developing his skills, he becomes chosen by the gods to become a paladin. After that, he runs for mayor and wins. So he's the mayor of a small town and his gavel grows into a giant warhammer when trouble is afoot.
Interesting to see the extent to which Firefox must go to maintain compatibility with Google: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/mozilla.dev.platform/q5cj38hGTEA
Even when you manage to keep up with the latest standards you have to bend over backwards to avoid taking the blame for not implementing what Google implements (the de facto standard).
Of course it wasn't announced, but a free @Dropbox@twitter.com account can now only sync between three devices. No surprise that a company still losing money has to increase pressure a bit, but not fun for the users.
#selfhost to avoid such unpleasant surprises!
Worked a bit more on my sketch tonight, focusing on adding clothing to a figure. Don’t quite have it right yet. Still need to work on compression wrinkles from the arms and hands resting on the fabric, but getting there... #sketch #sketching #doodle #doodlesketch #digitalart #digital #illustration #art #figure #clothing #wrinkles #mastoArt #creativeToots

I live in Louisiana, so it rains a lot. You would think that people around here knew how to drive in the rain, but you would be mistaken. Most of these assholes drive over sized SUVs taking usually just one child to school. It is inevitable that a wreck happens frequently.

I don’t know if I’ve stated it here, but I really, really hate people here who drive their kids to school every morning. It’s literally text me longer to get out of my neighborhood then it takes for the entire rest of the commute to work. It gets really bad when the school buses are in the line with us, and traffic is filled up with assholes who should have their kids on those buses. For fucks sake we pay taxes to have those buses take the kids to school.
Please #StopUsingMedium. It’s really annoying and makes me not read your content, no matter how good it is. Not specific for this author. This a general statement.
Announcing the release of sway 1.0
In (1999), the Presto and KHTML web engines were being worked on in Waldemar Thranes gate 98, Oslo Norway. Presto had a big influence on web standards. KHTML was the forerunner to Webkit/Blink, on which most web browsers are now based, including @firstname.lastname@example.org. #Web30 #ForTheWeb

First art post in a long while as I haven’t worked on anything I can show. This is a sketch of a painting I’m starting. Very early in the process. Still trying to get composition working. Changing things up on what I’ve done lately. While this will be painted in a realistic style as usual, certain parts of it will be a bit more caricatured. #mastoArt #creativeToots #sketch #digitalArt
A friend of mine just just tried debugging why he couldn't compile various pieces of software (for example cmake) and stumbled upon something rather hilarious:
As it turns out the compiler checks during the configure stage fail because they do a string match on the word "warning". If it finds that word in the output it rejects the compiler, as it assumes it to be not working correctly.
My friend's username? Oh, nothing special, it's simply "m_warning".
New free reference pictures from Puerto Rico! Yay!

Stay awesome, y'all.
This is an excellent testimonial to FOSS systems. Regardless of your thoughts on the quality of the product, people bought these things for $900 American. Now, the company is gone and the servers are being shut down. This formerly $900 device is useless for anything other than parts.

Wacom’s Cintiq pen displays are excellent and have build quality akin to what they’d put into their Intuos products years ago. I don’t want nor need a pen display. I’ve used a tablet since 1999 and can draw on it as well as I can on paper. I already have 3 displays and don’t need another that I can only use when painting.
