Just in case it's of interest to anyone: my installation guide for the #ixilang #livecoding language has been updated, both with a link to my working standalone build, and step-by-step instructions for getting ixi working with SuperCollider on both OS X and Windows. https://emmawinston.me/2018/07/18/installing-ixi-lang/
@deerful "it seems to work for most people, but it probably shouldn’t!" resonates deeply with me.
@makingarecord I AM SO CONFUSED BY IT
@deerful that sounds like a good plan!
@deerful well then. new weekend plan
@bcj please please let me know how you get on if you try it! I feel like my documentation is still really unclear and am kind of relying on seeing where people get stuck to clarify it, lol
@deerful Sierra problems, ~2016, dragging elsewhere to fix it... sounds like this “App Translocation” situation I was just dealing with days ago
Two fixes seem to be: drag app to another folder, or:
xattr -dr com.apple.quarantine Whatever.app
@ryantouk the signed production release doesn't work from any folder I've tested, including Applications - but to confuse matters, it works fine for some people, including the original dev.
My old version doesn't install anything/need signing, but is no longer linked on the dev's website. I've given up hoping he will rehost it, but it works basically fine for now, so I'm just distributing it myself. More user friendly than making beginners run terminal commands too.
@deerful Maybe I’ll try both versions (introduced by the podcast!)
@ryantouk (at some point I really want to take over maintenance of the software but I currently don't have the skills or time to. hopefully one day this will all be moot though!)
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
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!
