CHAPTER 8: FOUR
SECTIONS vii, viii.
The game concludes.
In space, things can only go from bad to worse.
A year ago Google Music shut down. I'd used it exclusively as a free cloud locker for the same ~/music/ dir I've been keeping since the late 90s, because its player let me access my music from any device with an internet connection. So when it shut down I had to find a new way to do that. I ended up running a https://jellyfin.org server on my home desktop. It hasn't been without its hassles but it gets me just about the same UX as Google Music did, in a brave new self-hosted world.
I'm so glad the Archive exists - it's so encouraging that there's a modern, well-stocked, public archive of digital media.
I know I talk about the Wayback Machine a lot but the VHS Vault is also fantastic as a source of digitized analog video!

Hey y'all I hate to have to do this again. I'm $350 short of making rent for next month, probably another $50 on top of that for other expenses but just making rent is priority #1 for now.
Been trying real hard to get more shit together but sadly I still gotta ask for some help ;; thank you if you donate anything or even just boost this

macOS users, i have a new build of Playscii that i want to make sure runs on someone's system besides my own:
i bit the bullet and upgraded my 2010 macbook to High Sierra (the last supported OS for that hardware) and did a 64-bit build with Python 3.9.9. i'm curious as it if it runs on any of the 64-bit-only macOS versions, and if it gives you any guff for it being non-notarized. bonus points if it runs on one of the new M1 macs i guess?
Today is my first day of production on a full game based on my minesweeper-but-digging-up-fossils prototype from earlier this year. I'm planning to stream throughout development (starting right now \o/), so if that sounds fun, drop by and say hi! #gamedev #indiedev #godotengine
If you'd like to check out the prototype, you can download it here https://cheeseness.itch.io/bonesweeper
BURNING HEARTS FOREVER is a open setting tabletop RPG about those who wield Hearts: fate-bending emotion-powered extensions of their wielders - from giant mechs, to electric guitars, to legendary swords.
hey so it's new and barebones atm but i decided to set up a ko-fi for anyone who wants to financially support me. right now it's just a place for donations but i will be using it for writing commissions at some point in the future once i set everything up.
mutual aid request, pls boost
im making huge progress towards getting work again but I'm down to 2 bucks and a single packet of ramen so if anyone can help me pay for food it would go a long way in the coming weeks, ty all so much anything helps
one thing about the "are video games art" question that's funny to me is that people often assume that it means that to be art, video games have to be high-end, beautiful things with deep meaning or some shit
when art can absolutely be meaningless, vapid, silly, easy to grasp, and/or just plain bad
what i'm trying to say is that big rigs over the road racing is art
begpost, please boost and share, CW house arrest, unjust conviction and sentencing, i fucking hate the courts
Please please PLEASE boost and share and donate this fundraiser for my friend's partner, who is currently serving a house arrest sentence for bullshit trumped up charges. He needs all the support he can get at this time. Fuck the courts, fuck the cops
