"Instead of making furniture or constructing buildings, why not grow them? It sounds like a radical idea, but it’s entirely possible thanks to mycelium. Mycelium are the roots of mushrooms, and create beautiful networks underground. They can also be ‘trained’ to grow into moulds, offering the possibility of mycelium being used as an eco-friendly material for construction. Floriade’s Mycelium Parc offers a glimpse of what’s possible."

Ok, three todos:

[ ] make appointment (by phone) for checkup cv
[ ] make online appointment for car service
[ ] create and send invoice

Actually the social network that i have the fondest memories of, is Livejournal.

But that was 20 years ago.

We're now running #Doom via `cpu` over USB gadget ethernet on the MangoPi MQ-Pro (D1 RISC-V SoC).

It took a few steps to get there.

And finally, we're now drafting a nice setup menu - henceforth named teaboot. :)

I just published my 1h22min video
"Tutorial: an Illustration from A to Z with Krita"
It's a real full lenght course suited to beginners, but also advanced digital painters. It starts from scratch with default brushes, pref' and breakdown all the process:

▶ Peertube: check @shichimi (soon, still transcoding)
▶ Youtube: youtu.be/uYdEkOyFUn8

#Mastoart #Krita #tutorial

random idea: transforming a mastodon thread into an easier readable long-read.

Is this what a midlife crisis feels like? Just a big feeling of stagnation.

(i am ignoring the panic attacks and the depression, we are working on those).

This month we still need €213 to cover all costs for mstdn.social, misskey.ai, mastodon.coffee, pixey.org, catgram.co and more, more more! :cat_hug_triangle:

Ofc I'm gonna do my best to pay it all but since everything is soo expensive already I could use every bit of help.. ❤️


Please think about supporting, if not me perhaps your own server admin :cat_hug_triangle::fediverse:

Starting as a front-end developer and trying to grow out of that label is a lot harder than growing from a back-end developer to a managing position. I have "lead" in my title, but it really feels like every other "real" developer has more to say in terms of technical direction.

I just misread "nighttime mode in your devices" as "nightmare mode…" and I think it's now stuck.

I think my device has quite a well-defined nightmare mode where notifications come thick and fast, sometimes through multiple channels redundantly and are intermingled with people chasing me for things and occasional news alerts.

Oof, sitting at 15 years in my career i feel that. Although i am at a good company, but i am stretching a bit thin and not enjoying it so much anymore.


Everybody hates ads and wants to block ads - only as long as it's someone else, not you, the one who is making profit from them.

I hate my industry and I hate the way it is funded, with no exceptions. Many decades down the line, and the answer to "how do we increase revenue?" is still "just shovel more ads down the customers' throat", or "just collect more user data so you can shovel more targeted ads down the users' throat".

Companies like #Apple may make some extra revenue from their sales of overpriced gadgets, and therefore they could afford to build a narrative like "we're not Google and Facebook - we care about your privacy and we care about an experience with technology that is not overwhelmed by ads".

But, as their sales of iPhones and iPads decline amid supply shortages and market saturation, even Apple has to fall back on aggressive advertisement policies, and pretend that they never said anything they said about ads in the past 5 years.

How did we let the IT industry become so subjugate to the ads industry that nobody seem to even bother considering other business models?


I can see them just fine. It's just I don't think they should exist. Ⓐ

I have written a few Cypress tests. So i'll be updating my Linkedin with me being a testing craft master.
