My hobby: finding words that fit to arbitrary rules for no reason. Examples: words that contain all five major vowels (evacuation), long words that have only one vowel multiple times (stronghold), words in which the singular form ends in S (species). I like to do that in Portuguese and English... I don't know, it's just fun.
Sounds like you might enjoy Oulipo word/writing games. They are also called constraints. languageisavirus.c...
Text alone can convey the message its all you need. I like this place everyone seems nice and chill
Try yucata.de for web implementations of board games. I've been playing a lot of Oracle of Delphi there.
Very nice. Thank you. I will try to get on a game here soon.
Founder effect?
It's an idea from genetics where you lose variation in a gene pool when a small population establishes something new. Based on presentation alone and the very different features Subreply offers, a certain kind of crowd seems to be attracted to this platform. That is perhaps why I am seeing multiple calls for open sourcing where I don't see in other corners of my web experience.
by open sourcing a pet project like this, the developer can share more than just the presentation of the product (which we are using) but also the full extent of engineering that powers it... you already grasp that part, so the question of incentive or who owes what - obviously owes nobody anything - but if he did [and now i ironically hit the limit so cannot expand much more; but if his code was open we could take a look at how to do such things as extending limits!]
I see. Thank you for responding and for clarifying. You were not the only one that is calling for this, but it did make me curious. I believe we have an interesting founder effect situation happening with who is being drawn to such a minimal social network. I am genuinely intrigued by the calls to improve experiences here. Thank you again!
Subreply should open source itself
Hello. I only loosely understand the history of open source so I am asking this completely from a place of curiosity. Why should? What would this do? Do developers owe extra work to others? Is it just generally the appropriate thing to do with a creation like Subreply? Thank you.
I know rss is dying, but does anyone know which news agencies and whatnot still support it? Don't suppose there's an 'awesome rss collection' floating around
alltop.com was an interesting site that gathered a bunch of them. It seems they are still updating this.
haha, that's great to hear! For sure, please send it over :)
That's a good question. This idea formed when thinking about communities living around a regular Krakatoa event but much milder. The sign language being baked into the language would be a way to hedge your bets. So in my world "aural culture" would be kids enjoying the little things like the birds, rain, wind rustling leaves. The hearing loss event would be like a coming of age thing, with those living farther away seen as weak for not 'sacrificing' hearing for fertile land.
In love with this Dan. What game is this for?
Anybody like tofu? My mother recently asked me what I enjoyed about it, and I kind of struggled with the answer. I think the taste is quite cardboardy, and yet I eat it with pleasure (when prepared well). Maybe it's just a unobtrusive vessel for fats and flavours.
Love it. It is really popular here in Hawai'i because of Japanese and Chinese influence. To me it is delicious and versatile in all textures from silken to extra firm.
Which are your favorite personal blogs?
I like manuelmoreale.com and patrickrhone.net.
what's a quote you discovered 5+ years ago that you still go back to
Anyone here involved with education? Specifically game-based learning.
I teach elementary students with board games a lot. Looking to teach with TTRPGs soon too.
This is a question that a colleague asked me a couple years ago, and it just keeps coming back to me. If one becomes informed about the damage that our meat consumption is causing on the planet, does it become immoral for one to consume meat? Say, if you watch a couple documentaries on Netflix and continue consuming meat, does that make you a bad person? I don't really have an answer. I think about it every time I eat a burger.
It all comes down to consent for me and that there is no humane way to kill a sentient being that does not want to die. The animal's life is their own and who am I to be the oppressor and mandate my wants over their needs?
Who's your favorite visual ?
Does Andy Goldsworthy count?
A question for the swarm of cool people: As my favorite hobby to do-while-doing-other-things is listening to podcasts (mostly in german, though) -- Which podcasts to you find interesting or useful? To me, The Anthropocene Reviewed was mildly interesting.
The Unmade Podcast and The Adventure Zone keep me very happy.
