@k_purpose I'll probably be following your lead. The next ten days are supposed to be sweltering!
Considering buying a window air conditioner. Not for me. I'll sweat all day to save a couple bucks. But my poor computer is struggling. It's sputtering like an over-leaned plane engine.
Finally closed the dozens of tabs I had open in Firefox. You know the ones. Read-this-later tabs. For-future-reference tabs. Closed them all. I'm free.
The capitalist desire to buy a new mechanical keyboard even though my current one works perfectly fine. Get behind me, Satan.
@jalefkowit @rik I agree with the sentiment of this post, but--god--to I want that station wagon.
The nearly debilitating anxiety of signing a one year lease for an apartment. You mean to tell me I have to live in this one place for a whole year? Crazy. Anyway, I signed it. Hello, Virginia.
Well. I guess I don't use a search engine anymore.
@maya overwhelmed by price and choice, I bought a giant ball to sit (bounce) on.
On today's edition of beating games from a decade ago using a modern graphics card I absolutely do not need, Metro 2033 Redux was pretty good.
@brisling that's what I've always loved about science fiction. I feel like it has the ability to show those trend most apparently.
@tonytrandesign how did I not know about didder? I've been manually dithering GIMP. Thank you!
@brood never actually worked in tech, but I feel the same. For the first time since the mid 00's, I have my own static website. And Fediverse instances feel more like the forums of the earlier web than they do today's social networks. It's a wonderful time.
Dear fedi, first of all apologies as we're going to potentially spam this timeline a bit. We're introducing the #fediverse to an audience of art and design practitioners, as part of an event dedicated to alternative tools and platforms: https://thehmm.nl/event/the-hmm-on-alternative-platforms
It is a presentation that will take place entirely within the fediverse and best followed through the #fediverse hashtag or here: http://post.lurk.org/tags/fediverse
We are going to divide this presentation in two: a description of the fediverse in general terms, and what it can mean for the field of art and cultural production.
In total, there will be 10 toots spread over 10 minutes. During this presentation members and friends of the LURK instance will join us, as it is also a mini #LURKbirthday party for celebrating our 3 year anniversary on the fedi!
