oh hell yeah unicode 13 about time
ht to @muffinista for posting about this
The InternetArchive blog post about history, mythology, games and other educational offerings for the kids unable to go to school due to the ongoing issues.
@sparr If there was a simple template I could do some initial data entry. Basically copying over (with some editing) the data I have in my list already. :)
I mean, it is a "fantasy computer" but it has a much clearer "game" element as it has different template puzzles (how to code the image) and leaderboards for people that play (via reddit).
@Dee so far I have converted one family member and one neighbor to Linux. granted it is Lubuntu but....
and yes - it feels like waving a dead chicken around trying to excise the seasons every time anyone asks me to fix a win10 issue.
@sparr hm... yes, it isn't strictly a "game" any more than NES game development is a game.
happy we had a chat about it though, helps with a clear frame for what belongs and not.
just say when I can start adding entries. still don't have much time and moving house this month. 🙃
"Read" by Mayan Mashraki is such a simple and enjoyable RSS reader for my phone! Loving rediscovering the simple joy of a well pruned list of RSS feeds to all things (RSS bridge ftw).
only thing missing is an export/import feed list feature... may have sent him an email about it hoping it will be added.
@sparr so team good job so far. :)
I think fantasy consoles kinda belong?
they usually have some limitations that can make for a puzzle... what do you think?
@sparr sounds good.
Can't think of anything that needs to be added to that as a general template.
@sparr : also, the costs might need a date stamp so folks know when the price was checked. Have seen prices fluctuate a fair bit.
Any thoughts on wording/categories/tags/genres for distinguishing hard/software simulations, coding vs visual coding, and puzzle vs PvP?
@sparr looks good. I'm by no means experienced, but it seems simple and clear -- not so over-burdened that it becomes a hassle to read through the zillion subsections. Love the links to the community sites.
Just a thought, the "inspiration"... not sure if we will be able to fill that out for most of these. I did have a look when I wrote that post and couldn't find it for the majority of the games.
@sparr absolutely. got next to no spare time lately but I would be happy to help what little I can. :)
2019 was one hell of a year... 2020 is going a bit slower so got time to read again - thought I would catch up on APEX magazine... except it went into indefinite hibernation April 2019. 😥
I get why, but still makes me sad. Anyone know any other good APEX-esq scifi magazines?
podcast: 99% Invisible. episode 389. proof that creativity and cultural products are built on other creative things. no one creates in a vacuum
Some additional free design fiction also available from: https://shop.nearfuturelaboratory.com/
For the #speculativefiction #scifi folks, have a look at the TBD CATALOG (available for free). A skymall-esq catalog of design fiction. Products that don't exist, but absolutely could at any moment become real.
@mattbk how long have you had the Kindle if I can ask? they do look nice... even if the idea of "if you are poor we can give you a discounted unit with a metric ton of ads" / "we can just recall your ebook from your device" makes me worried...
another issue (entirely my own) is that I only get DRM free books. yes I'm one of them nuts.
