The Exiv2 team has just pushed a long awaited 0.26 release! Congratulations to the team and thank you so much for all the great work!
If you're not familiar with it, Exiv2 is the metadata manipulation library under many photo projects...
Indie game idea: Sandbox game with a literal sandbox and typical sandbox toys (a plastic shovel, a generic Tonka truck, and a bucket).
Make it cost a fiver and people will buy it as a joke.
If it's made with a VR mode, it'll probably sell well and people will somehow have fun.
It could have a social mode, but everyone should look like a toddler to everyone else. Randomly assign gender and race of course (or make everyone an alien child).

Since I'm moving from mastodon.social to this new instance, I made a bot that I'm running on my old account. It responds to any new followers once, telling them where I've moved. Code is here, feel free to use/modify:
Note: it only works as well as the instance you're migrating from. So in my case, when mastodon.social is janky, the bot doesn't autoreply at all. No guarantees here.
Friendly reminder that there’s an artist/maker/writer/designer instance waiting for you at creativity.cafe!
