Pinned post


While preparing another game I ended up neglecting my finances.
My fault.

Yet, if you would like to see more projects, hopefully helpful posts and clumsy from me, so i can afford them.

ok, so tomorrow i am getting evicted.
New page in life.


danmaku poll showed next to no support or even interest in having danmaku feature in peertube.
It also failed to be anywhere near representative.
Counting this as a fail.

In my the recent quite successfull poll
mastodon.technology/@houkimena

out of 94 respondents 62% would NOT federate with if it allowed it.
Reasons stated:
* unfeasible for current fedi servers (traffic load)
* unhealthy twitter userbase
* fedi needs to grow on its own terms
+ a voice to federate but in silent mode.

Conclusion:
Despite broad anti-twitter sentiment, it would be significantly integrated unless tech forbids.
Possible fediverse split over community standards
Thx for participating!

If I can place only one link, what is the best introduction to out there for people completely new?

Symmetrically dividing bacteria do not die of old age.
Some yeasts and simple multicellular organisms too can live forever.

Humanity is now connected and interdependent in complex ways.
And we fall ill as a single organism, too.

On this hyper-connected way, the humanity-organism will become able to age and die, taking most of us with it.

And rising authoritarian tide does feel like aging or illness.

-living and/or ships could keep distance healthy and communities - small.

Aand that's it for today.
Allowed myself just a small window to post the stuff i consider most important.
(Like doing things I have said I will do)
Maybe it is for the better.


Second of my favs is Fossa Systems.

They make picosatellites.
Their page - glossy and commercial-feeling.
fossa.systems

Yet, their sats are semi- .
No pcb layouts or mechanics, but software and schematics.
github.com/FOSSASystems/FOSSAS

Last sat blew up Sept 3 with Firefly Alpha ^_^

Picosats are one of the cheapest entries into space market. FOSSA _sell_ sat+launch+training for 100-120k€

Wiki says a launch of a picosat can be 12-18k$
Crowdfundable start?

Ok, I have promised to cover some tech developments.
Old favourites first.

Applied Ion Systems.
I believe it is one, but incredible, person.
They make ion s.

The site appliedionsystems.com
has some design files, but it hasn't updated for a while.

But their is very alive with news on testing new versions of EHT1 - little adamantine hall effect thruster:
nitter.fdn.fr/Applied_Ion

Follow them from fedi like @applied_ion

Have just discovered a surprise ending in my own .

2 big lines in the plot, intuitively antagonistic, interacted with some thoughtlets from my recent posts about and suddenly went kaboom in the nova of synthesis.

And now i think it should be a canon ending.
Answers some of my life questons too.

That's why you do .

@houkimenator Let's do that! :blobcatgiggle:

I feel an idea for a new space company coming... :bloblaugh::blobcatspace:

Do you want to go to #space? :blobcatspace:


Next, on , people are participants, not customers.
This is a key difference from and others.

This means, people can take roles and make them matter.
@humanetech and @feditips
have them.
Different project maintainers have them.

What could be yours? However whimsical it could be, consider taking it up. Maybe just follow your dream?
Can be fun.

And there is an open question: how can fediverse as a whole help and reward people who choose to take up responsibilities?

Have thought about building stronger and stuff.

First, a reminder that tag exists: people _do_ ask for help.
Please consider pinning it and do not hesitate to use. One can set it to local-only and also include extra tags to see only things one could help with.
I am pinning it today.

🟢 [New Report] Italy blocks Gutenberg book publishing website
ooni.org/post/2021-italy-block

In collaboration w/ Davide Brunello, we published a new report which examines the blocking of the Gutenberg book publishing website across networks in #Italy based on OONI data.

@humanetech
The most frightening exerpt from the EU commision report on opensource is 'This information is essential to develop policy actions in the field.'

Please, , do NOT develop policy actions in the field of .

Don't buy and stuff for public schools, this would be more than enough.

Why danmaku?
Because that is one way to motivate people to make more comments and engage.

If you look at videos now, they barely even have comments.
Yet the ability to interact with the video from anywhere in the federation is one of the hallmark peertube features.

With danmaku on peertube, you could leave your mark on someone's video without even leaving .

Also I do not know of any english-speaking video platform having it, so a chance to make your server very distinct.

Would you use danmaku in if supported?
(will consider making it)

Note: Danmaku are rolling comments superimposed on video at the user-defined time, looks like this (DPlayer): camo.githubusercontent.com/882


While wiring together a for my robot characters, had an idea of a real-life .

I knew about (now defunct) MegaBots .inc giant mecha colosseum, and various smaller robot fighting competitions.

But as it turns out, robot theaters are also a thing!
Didn't find any on Peertube sadly, but here is some via Invidious.
