I've been interested in writing a Ren'Py game for some time, and wanted to work on something goofy that could make people laugh.

RMS Dating Simulator (Github)

This is a fun way to motivate myself to do something with the engine, and I get to write an interactive story and make the art for it, too. I honestly think this could be a really fun collaborative project - it'd be fun to brainstorm with people about ways to make the story better, or funny things that could happen here.

A visual novel involving Richard Stallman (also known as RMS) of the Free Software Foundation as well as the GNU project. This is inspired by numerous dating simulator games found in the Newgrounds.com community


Licensed under the GPLv3, with CC-BY-SA 4.0 for any content that comes from it. Currently, there are no art assets developed yet, and the interaction is little more than a few conversation loops. However, I hope to take this much farther, and seek to tell a real story of some kind with it.

Enabled #ActivityPub on my Hubzilla server today. Curious as to what I can currently do with it.

Sometime early this morning / late last night, I became an uncle. Congrats to Beau Tilley on his evolution into fatherhood!

I'm so proud of everything you've accomplished and everything you've become, little brother.

Facebook and Instagram DOWN: Social media users despair as two major networks knocked offline

Facebook and Instagram, two of the largest social networks in the world, have both been knocked offline, in what appears to be a major outage.

Both services started experiencing issues at around 16:00 BST, according to independent website DownDetector, which tracks major network outages.

Do you have an example of such a co-op? I'd like to learn more about the idea.

Personally, I'm a very big fan of Enspiral. Great people, great organization.

Newest version of Clarity theme now includes support for the experimental new notification system in the dev branch of #Hubzilla. Took a little poking around the latest commits to understand why it was set up that way, but overall it works great.

My next goal will be to consider updating my widget layout, as I believe some proper housekeeping is in order. Also, it looks like my uploader is broken, so I'll have to look into that. :P

It's finally here! A million thanks to @Mike Macgirvin for sharing his many words of wisdom.

Got Zot — Mike Macgirvin – We Distribute – Medium

Mike Macgirvin is a personal friend, and a force to be reckoned with. Living on a farm in the hills of Australia, he has quietly spent his days carving out an elaborate system from scratch, doing the bulk of the work himself.

Over the past decade in particular, he has pushed the boundaries of a next-generation communication platform, restlessly experimenting and taking notes, often inventing his own solutions to complex problems.

This interview is the first part of our interview series, Faces of the Federation.

So out of all the religious books I ordered, the Qur'an arrived first.

I guess that has to be my religion now. That's how that works, right?

Not per se. In religion it all seems to depend on (your) interpretation of events and what lines in the book to link it to...

Just bought a copy of the Bible, the Torah, the Qur-an, The Satanic Bible, Tao Te Ching, and Confucius' Analects.

I also went all-in on The Federalist Papers, The Communist Manifesto, Das Kapital, The Wealth of Nations, and The Road to Serfdom.

The government is going to have a hard time deciding which watch list I should go on.

Just to be safe, they will put you on them all. Obviously, you also inhabit the "dark web", so they will put you on that list, too!

I've got the Anarchist's Cookbook around here somewhere. That probably qualifies me, if my years of Libertarian activism wasn't enough.

This song pierces my heart. I cried my eyes out when I initially listened to the first 30 seconds or so. I was honestly speechless at the purity of the guitar's whine. For some reason, it makes me think of beauty in spite of all-encompassing sadness.

Props to my friend Michael Kent for getting me into this guy.

We live in a world where you can run an open source Command and Conquer clone (OpenRA) on top of an open source Windows clone (ReactOS).

I have a survival manual that teaches you how to build shelters, gather food, hunt animals, perform first aid, build a fire, and stay alive at sea.

But no survival manual can teach you how to get a girlfriend.

If those skills become truly necessary, having them might go a long way towards getting one!

Was in the car with a friend today; saw a guy wearing a "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra" shirt. I wanted to shout "Shaka, when the walls fell!"

@platano.  Diaspora uses a pubsubhubbub service provided by Google to allow folks to subscribe to your Diaspora public feed. GNU-Social uses this mechanism to follow your public content. As you've noted media handling is buggered. Most OStatus projects separate media from content. Diaspora feeds do not separate media from content but instead merges them together.

@mike Oh, so one of the several protocols used by OStatus just happens to fit the job of subscribing to Diasporans... Thanks a lot Mike!! Yes, it's kinda cool, although not perfect. It's a pity it doesn't work the other way round (followig GS people from D*), though. They don't even see my comments to their posts, etc.

BTW, I didn't receive any notification for your comment, I just saw it on my timeline cause I'm following you. It shows my blue username link (withouth the preceding "@"), though. More protocol mess, I presume!

@platano

More protocol mess, I presume!


Notifications and how this relates to mentions isn't spelled out in the specs and every project does them a bit different. I'll compare yours (I have an example in front of me from your last comment) and try to match it after I choke down some more coffee. I think I see something that changed from the way Status.Net used to do this.

I really want to write a book on the history of computing. Not just a short snippet, but the entire evolutionary arc, from the Difference Engine up to cutting-edge development happening now.

@dsh you could be the first!

@dsh you may be interested in the group (known as Plan 28) devoted to building Babbage's Analytical Engine

It's always fun to see where my connections are coming from. I keep all of my contacts in collections based on what federated networks they use, which makes for tidy accounting. Also, I'd like to think that it adds a little bit of extra variety to my stream - people from GNU Social instances, for example, may act quite differently than people on Mastodon ones.

I connect to over 7 platforms now, through the Diaspora protocol or through OStatus. Everything else gets cross-posted to either Twitter, Pump.io, or Libertree.


  • Diaspora - 91
  • Friendica - 9
  • Hubzilla - 42
  • GNU Social - 47
  • Mastodon - 52
  • SocialHome - 2
  • postActiv - 9



Keep in mind, this number is constantly growing! I actively add people from platforms I had previously been active on, and occasionally will add random contacts from various different networks who appear to be active. This allows me to discover new nodes in the network organically over time.

Just added a bunch of accounts from #GNUsocial and #postActiv, with a few #Friendica and #Mastodon people for good measure.

Gotta bridge all of these networks and fill my stream with interesting content somehow!

@mike @dirb GNU social will auto mention people in classic interface, which are already in the conversation, but the qvitter UI doesnt preserve this, so the behaviour isnt even consistent within GnU social (or by extension postActiv)
