Hi #BSD and general #Unix people. I have a poll for you.

If CDBUG returned as a monthly online thing until we can return to a pre-COVID normalcy, would you attend? No need to be in the NY Capital District to attend!

Would you also be interested in giving a talk?

Please boost to your other BSD/Unix/#Linux friends.

This is a neat D6 based Afrocentric fantasy RPG and it's on sale. I've played once. If you want the feel of rolling big fistfuls of dice and counting hits whilst exploring strange new worlds, this game provides.

We found an open source license that Google is against so we're changing to it: Hello AGPL!

It helps prevent corporations from taking our code and selling it as a proprietary competitor.

No change to you as a Plausible subscriber or self-hoster.

I just discovered I'm apparently the owner of a "rare" metal album. It's rare because it's an indie band and they've for whatever reason left off the 3rd track of the album on their bandcamp page. Not sure why.

Anyway, it's Creative Commons so I uploaded it here in case somebody wants to check out one of my personal favourite CC metal EPs:

Hey did you know there was a bunch of Creative Commons metal linked from openmetalcast.com/

There's some great stuff there. Mentat is one of my favourites, both for the Dune reference and the music itself.

@magni Big shoutout to @klaatu and @lioh I followed the instructions in gnuworldorder.info/audiophile/ , episode of GNU World Order and this, mirror.math.princeton.edu/pub/ , mirror of the Slackware-current ISO. Together I got it booted up into KDE and, after a bit of hacking on it and referencing the documentation, I got it running with my XFCE configuration. I got dropped into xsm for a while, which was really nostalgic, but so far I AM LOVING IT.

Came in last in the peer rankings for the game jam: 27th of 27 [overall].

Luckily, my audio score did beat the 3 games without audio, and hey -- I didn't come in 28th.

@shellowl @amolith I've started a Sunday game. Our goal is to go through a bunch of different systems - about one a month (give or take). Starting with Shadowrun 5e. Rules not required. I have pregen characters and anything we don't know, we're just learning as we go.

Pretty loose structure, too, so regular attendance isn't required or expected.

I just released #Tootle 1.0 (Alpha 1), which aims to be a lightweight Mastodon client for Linux desktops and phones :toot:

You can read the change log and download the sources here: github.com/bleakgrey/tootle/re

A Flatpak version will be prepared soon, so stay tuned :3

I've been meaning to participate in a game jam for 3 or 4 years. This weekend, I happened to have a spare day, and so I've written a game for openjam.io/

Sadly I wrote it in Python rather than Lua (doing it in Python means I can use it as a teaching resource) but so far I'm pretty happy with it.

@herag just listened to episode 1. Loved it. Emma goldman was my intro into anarchism, and I consider myself an anarcho syndacalist as a dirext result.

To confirm, yes Emma Goldman was athiest. She wrote an essay about it.
