Pinned toot

recent indie game video boosts 

I've been playing some truly awesome small indie games in the last few months. I archive my streams over at irrsinn.video/video-channels/m, and I work to get closed captioning on them within a week of uploading.

If you're looking for some game recs, I'd suggest checking them out. Just about all of them take between 10 min and 3 hours, so these are quite small games by conventional standards. You can subscribe to a Peertube channel w/ a Mastodon account, too.

I write. I . I play way too much Fallen London. I collect tattoos. I will not call posts "toots".

I like learning to be more imaginative in devising solutions to difficult problems. ๐ŸŽŠ

git repo architecture 

I've got a doozy of a git repo architecture question to get resolved before my current setup is inflicted on my teammates: softwareengineering.stackexcha

It struck me just a bit after posting that that maybe the best solution is a single large repo where I can move items around freely and version the whole set instead of each function app. ๐Ÿค”

looking for freely licensed black and white manga drawings. anyone know a source?

Are there any communist reading/discussion groups here on the fedi?

I'd love to read some theory and feel a bit more equipped to have theoretical discussions but I don't know where to start and I don't want to do it alone.

Boosts welcome! And if it doesn't exist maybe I can look at starting one.

Using a heart rate monitor (HRM) to better manage #MECFS

New post talking about how using a HRM is changing my behaviour & will hopefully bring some improvement to my ME symptoms.

Yes, this was the reason for all my questions about Heart Rate Monitors a couple of months ago :)

mental health, sleep, games 

My therapist suggested reducing my caffeine intake in an experiment in anxiety management. I'm on my second day of half-caf, and I am SO SLEEPY. I'm almost definitely going to push tonight's stream to another night. Nodding off during Celeste won't go nearly as well as it did during Her Story a few weeks ago. ๐Ÿ˜…

In other news, I finished Unavowed and it was so good I immediately wrote a review on Steam. :QueerCatHeart: wadjeteyegames.com/games/unavo steamcommunity.com/id/averymd/

bilingual pride facts 

the Arabic names for the different components of LGBT all start with the letter ู… meem, the M sound.

lesbian = ู…ุซู„ูŠุงุช mithlayat
gay = ู…ุซู„ูŠูˆู† mithlyeen
bisexual = ู…ุฒุฏูˆุฌูŠ ุงู„ู…ูŠูˆู„ muzdawjay al-muyul
transgender = ู…ุชุญูˆู„ูˆู†/ ู…ุชุญูˆู„ุงุช ุงู„ุฌู†ุณ mutahawaleen / mutahawilat al-jins

so the acronym would actually just be ู…ู…ู…ู… MMMM lol. instead, it's the meme society, which is, I think, extremely very good.

The world could have been close to full vaccination by now, if we had agreed on royalty free licensing for all approved vaccines. Instead we sacrifice life in the name of intellectual property and patents. Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the toot.
