I had switched it on in accessibility settings because my left ear got blocked 😆
I feel I should clarify that this is a joke
Wow, cannot believe this guy just straight up plagiarised my song 😤
Who even is this "Simon Clark" person???
Pssst... btw you can buy the song on Bandcamp: https://mirrorbox.bandcamp.com/album/what-a-nice-and-reasonable-young-man
There's a studio version coming "soon" as well 😁
oh hey, it is Cardinal in the browser!
Still very fragile, very early steps.
But the whole thing is there, and amazing that it renders just like the desktop version. 😱
This is VERY promising!
Hey, remember that Bionic Reading thing that was going around a bit ago, supposed to be easier for dyslexic/neurodivergent people to read, bolds the first few characters of each word, locked behind a $500/mo API?
Here's a free version that does the same thing: https://not-br.neocities.org/

After great progress on my programming language Gamma and and my EZER emulator, I have opened IRC channels #gamma and #EZER on Libera to open them to participation. I will be online from 9:00-23:00 UTC-3. You will need to be registered with NickServ to join.
Looking forward to meeting you!
VCV Rack Fundamental modules are coming to Cardinal!
New panels contributed by a user on GitHub.
The bulk of the work for the implementation is done, now it is just a few missing custom widgets needed and then some polish (making sure everything is consistent in terms of position, size, style, etc)
The next 22.05 is going to be a very fine release. ✨
I thoroughly enjoyed this text by @entreprecariat on coding as a neoliberal imperative versus coding as a practice of learning, craft and belonging.
“The craftsperson enters their own physical or digital workshop—a local hackerspace, a custom i3 setup, a DIY CMS—and feels at home. This is where they code and learn, learn and code. This is where they can forget, for a while at least, if they are lucky, the pressures and economic necessities of daily life.”
I got to know the feel of craft through my mother’s practice. She was a trained ceramist and had her workshop in the same place I grew up. Her ceramics and the raw materials, her work processes and the passages of time, hanging around in the workshop - all of these things formed my understanding of going about my practice… and I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.
To think of coercing people to code for capitalism makes sad.
