nevermind its not gonna map followers automatically (dunno why i thought it did). find me at merveilles.town/@abundance and thank you again

hello! i just moved over here from friend.camp and wanted to briefly introduce myself. i'm everest- i'm an artist working in software and games, and on paper making drawings. you can find my work at everest-pipkin.com

i'm non-binary and use they/them pronouns.

right now i'm traveling for opportunities full-time and not based anywhere, but i'm originally from rural texas (and i usually i remember to update my profile with where currently i am).

looking forward to being here--

hiya-- i'm gonna migrate this account over to merveilles.town to focus more on projects and creative work, and rejoin friend.camp on locked for friends/life stuff. if you wanna keep up w me for studio things you don't have to do anything! but if we're close and you wanna hear about my cat, and feelings, look for me again

catch me at the club on saturday night crying at the youtube compilation of all the breath of the wild cutscenes i never found

i'm redoing my website design and i'm using <frames> in 2018 like a monster

catch me at the club on friday night carefully picking the lichen off the logs before i put them on the fire

my nanogenmo poetry book is done- terse poems embedded in dense fields of unicode characters- i'm happy with how it turned out.

the pdf is available here --> ifyoulived.org/never.pdf
or
github.com/NaNoGenMo/2018/issu

it was some broken error handling that didn't trigger enough to be obvious and didn't throw an actual error, just generated poems about pixies, monsters, demons, apollo, devil lore, etc at atypical rates and i could not figure out why for a good 15 minutes

i had a slightly unparseable nanogenmo bug where i kept going down a concept-net rabbit hole about pixie dust, turns out pixie dust is a related concept to 'undefined'

a gallery offered to buy a custom keyboard to show one of my games and this has kicked me off into another 4 hour research spiral about what mechanical key switch is best, aaaaa i can't afford this hobbyyyy, i mostly use a laptop, why do i love them so muchh

some unmanipulated text from the corpus i'm scraping for my nanogenmo ideas. i'm just in love with the vibe of it. if you guess where its from without googling phrases i'll be so impressed!!

here's a church nearby in the process of being totally rebuilt. i love maps a lot and i enjoy exploring places in this way. it's just a shame that this massive beautiful 3D dataset is owned by a corporation. openstreetmap.org is great for 2D maps though and you should use it!

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp)
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @emma

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
