this was originally part of our ko_op general meeting but uh, has anyone figured out how to date slackbot yet?

just to point out that this GDC talk from one of my office-mates on fashion and expression in games is super approachable and inspiring

i've been reliably informed that this has been done already on birdsite but i'll leave it up here as a testament to something.

We put a blanket in a box and now it's the most contested zone in the house


for a mere, decrepit walrus is about to discover that she is in fact a murderer... in the Twilight Zone.

@nicknicknicknick i saw one that took one cycle and did it without the ship taking off 😄

not having finished it yet, i wonder if speedruns for The Outer Wilds are going to take less than one cycle to finish...

i love the dark souls because the bosses are like these increasingly imposing gothic grotesques, these lumbering horrors, and the strategy to beat them is always "run between their legs until the camera loses you and wail on their nuts like a punching bag," comedy genius

as a corollary to this i'd motion that we rename "the best of e3" awards to "the most of e3" to acknowledge the neonliberal impulse towards quantifying intangibles, subsuming them within the market, worshipping larger numbers, and calling that artistic progress.


awake for two hours now processing my shame and i gave up to try to catch a tarantula but didn't see a single thing.

i might start practising some portrait photography.

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 and then as another user on
  • 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 @deerful

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 users, and only ever @ mention other 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!
