Hi! We're excited to announce Banchan Art, a new platform for art commissions!

It's a co-operative owned by workers and artists that raises the bar on how art commissions are done. Today, we're opening signups for the closed beta.

Sign up here: banchan.art/beta

It's a very interesting and touching piece of video game journalism and history. Even if you haven't played the game it is quite enjoyable to see how it came together as well as what it meant to those 2 (also it does not spoil anything past the general structure)

Two friends. A deserted island beyond space and time. Technical limitations. A unique vision for player freedom. And a last-minute crisis that nearly brought two years of work to collapse.

It also helps this studio bring bigger and more ambitious projects to the table that you can get a taste of by checking Doc's tweets about "Waifu Death Squad" (not the actual final title but it slaps nonetheless)

Not me getting into another bad dysphoria spiral because I saw another person 1 year on HRT looking 100 times better than me who's on 2 and not even out to more than 5 people --'

unix history & women 

It makes me sad that the women who are mostly responsible for making Unix on personal computers possible aren't talked about much, because of figures like RMS & Torvalds (and whoever he argued with on usenet - Andy comes to mind) coming to dominate history.

I know shockingly little about Lynne Jolitz, despite her being pivotal to affordable Unix on the i386 being possible.

I know that there were women involved with the development of Coherent but I'd have difficulty even naming them. (seems connected that most of the early 386 Unixes were developed by family business?)

The old Bell Labs documentaries always make it seem like most of the earliest Unix users were women as well.

Damn this hits in the feelings hard

Techniquement chaque puzzle peut se bruteforce en allant tester toutes les options avec tout le monde mais avec le nombre d'options (pas de conséquences à fail une remise en question) et même dans le 1er level plus simple c'est peu probable que ça arrive par accident

et vérifier/affiner les timeline/témoignages et aussi découvrir des traits de caractères des personnes quand tu les déstabilise pour te permettre de construire un peu plus ce qui a pu se passer
Y'a aussi des trucs 100% useless dans le tas ce qui est cool pour faire réfléchir.

Lucifer Within Us semble assez fun, j'ai fait qu'une mission mais bon feeling. C'est un jeu d'enquête avec une présentation et des système assez fun avec une timeline de ce que raconte chaque témoin, des indices utilisables pour faire avancer le scénario qu'on se construit

Like I know I should be used to it by now but I'm so fucking tired of having to learn a complete new field of medecine just to have an idea of what I would want/need because trans healthcare likes keeping people in the dark for fun...

Il y a une pétition pour inciter ou au moins faire examiner le sujet de l'implémentation d'un revenu basic universel à l'échelle de l'UE sur une plateforme de l'UE un peu comme pour l'AN et le Sénat.

Juste ça finit dans 1 semaine et on dirait qu'il faut aussi un quota par pays.

Quedan solo 9 días más para apoyar la iniciativa europea de implantar una renta básica universal y me parece tristisimo que se esté movilizando tan poco.

Que es una iniciativa europea, gente, no un simple change.org 🙏

"Intrinsic and inexplicable" encapsulates both my feelings and those of people resonating strongly with "born this way" in a still powerful, politically potent and understandable formula (albeit slightly less self explanatory).

I think it's kinda of what I had trouble putting words on at the time by saying "I don't know if I'm born this way but I don't care, I just am".
