I am standing outside, in Seattle, in the pitch dark, and I’m sweating from the heat and humidity. It isn’t even June yet!

Someone’s gonna pay for this

re: covid19 apps, other bt apps 

@feonixrift Interesting! I like the idea of crowd sourced environmental awareness. Id be interested in being involved in such a project if help is ever required (to whatever degree I can provide, of course)

@cosine Coincidentally, that is also what happens when I see an attractive man in a tuxedo

@feonixrift What do you mean by localized map data?

@m455b@tiny.tilde.website All string formatting is screaming into the void, lisp just makes it explicit

Okay but also, some birds rub ants on themselves, it's called "anting" and we're not like, *totally* sure why they do it, maybe it helps them stay clean, maybe it deters parasites, maybe, honestly, it's just something to do, why does anyone do anything, rub some ants on yourself

Who's that just sitting there?

Oh, it's me, putting the cute in executive dysfunction

Neat find in the parking lot today. Looks like a Porsche 356, ‘57 maybe?

Selfie, ec 

On the other hand, I look damn cute in apocalypse chic

(Just ignore the shoddy seam work and messy hair, yeah?)

Finally finished sewing my mask. I chose microfiber for the outer layer because it’s nonwoven and hence less porous, and t shirt fabric for the inner liner because I could be sure it was 100% cotton.

Boy let me tell you, those are fucking *awful* fabrics to work with. They’re both so stretchy and since the microfiber doesn’t have weave to separate it just tears constantly instead.

Learn from my mistakes kids

@fribbledom I built a whole dang OS from source a few days ago, generating over 150 gigabytes (!) of artifacts in the process, and it took less than 2 hours. On my laptop, no less.

How times have changed!

Quick poll: anyone not on Mac or Windows (which I imagine is a fair number of people here) what OS so you use? I.e if you’re on Linux or a Linux-like system what distro are you running, etc.

@cosine Some artists who draw realistic portraiture can work it out from scratch based on perspective and human anatomy, but I think it’s a little different for cartoons. A lot of cartoons have a finite number of fixed angles from which characters are drawn, so in that case I imagine they work out the different angles as part of the character creation process, kind of like with sprites in an old video game. Idk if they’re all done like that though
