The No Video Jam 2 starts in 3 days and I'm actually kinda nervous

Or maybe it is and we just don't have the right ones. Still!

Show thread

I hate the sound of vacuum cleaners. Why isn't this a solved problem?

I feel like adding more features to this. A bot that communicates primarily through voice. Even better if I could do speech recognition but I don't want to use "the cloud" for this. I would want to run it locally on a server under my control.

Not sure why Discord hasn't added a feature where tts announces who joins and leaves the channel and made me write a bot for it. Ah well. This is much better already.

Since Yahoo! Answers is going away, maybe we should remember some of the great times we've had on the platform. Moments like... youtube.com/watch?v=EShUeudtaF

Happy birthday @Mayana !! I hope a significant amount of your wishes find their way into reality! You're an incredible person, and I don't just say that because you help me run this instance! :dragon_heart: :dragon_happy:

Apparently some of Mark's data was included in the FB data leak. Mwahahaha... uh I mean oh no how terrible!

Maybe a Hetzner server with Wasabi storage? Not sure. Hmm.

We need to move servers again sometime soon. Ugh. Don't want tooooo!

Is there a way to filter your timeline for audio posts? If not, there absolutely should be!

This is the sound of one cat enjoying herself very much.

And the battery lasts forever. I haven't charged it for 2 days. Granted, fairly light usage, but still!

Say what you will about the new M1 macs, but they sure are fast.

Hey! We're running a game jam on Itch that focuses on making an audio game. Audio games are games that are played completely by ear and don't have eyes as a minimum requirement! I'd absolutely love for you to join and give it a try!
And if you know someone that might find this interesting, maybe tell them? <3
We start on April 9th, and submissions close on April 26th.

There's just so much stuff that comes bundled with Logic... It's totally possible to have fun with only the 70 GB of content it comes with. It's a lot. Coming from Reaper where you get pretty much nothing.

Show thread

As much as I prefer Reaper over Logic, I do have to say that I kinda missed it. It's just such a different flow, such a different way of working... it's super easy to lose yourself in all the samples and synths that just come bundled with it and then you end up with something that could maybe fit right in the Cyberpunk soundtrack if it was, you know, a full song and not just a loop.

Just witnessed my first instance of someone making a webpage with a user interface drawn only on the canvas. Completely inaccessible. Please, whatever you do, don't do it. I know Flutter does it, but don't. Please, please, don't. I was super happy not to have to deal with inaccessible Flash UI's anymore... even a bad website is better than this. :(
