I don't think I ever did one of these and there's 🍍 all these new people 🍍 so: #introductions Show more
I'm mostly a software engineer and #videogamer, with tangents to #cycling, failing to learn #Norwegian, and otherwise wasting a perfectly good B.Mus in #violin performance. I was a #moonkin (SERVER FIRST ALGALON 10), and now I'm a #Guardian.
Reminder for all the #AnthemGame alpha players giving feedback: Don't armchair-game-design. Talk about your expectations and how stuff made you feel:
🚫 "Guns should hit 27.3% harder"
✔ "Enemies feel tankier than I expected"
✔ "Guns feel like pea shooters"
I believe in fact-based news with a long term focus that is completely ad-free.
Some good people seem to be backing this effort that I trust so I pledged some euros for this:
Or here is my ref-including link if you prefer to use that one.
We desperately need news with a sustained focus, not the "oh this was a topic for two days and it's gone" of even the NYT variety.
@ellotheth I'm the king of janky code at work. Yesterday I had to look over some old scripts, with the whole team, sitting on our domain controller that I wrote two years ago...there's always something broken and sketchy... wonder how my new code looks. LOL😅

Still no documentation and not anywhere close to done, but my #ActivityPub #PHP library is open source at https://github.com/pterotype-project/activitypub-php.
My goal is to provide a well-tested, flexible library that handles the complicated parts of ActivityPub (JSON-LD, persistence, addressing, etc.) in a way that can be plugged into an existing PHP codebase with no hassle. That'll help me refactor #Pterotype, and will also make it easy for other developers to make developers to make plugins for Joomla, Drupal, etc.
