PSA: The "verified" symbol you see on Twitter etc means absolutely nothing on Mastodon or the Fediverse. On here, symbols like :verified: are just custom emoji that anyone can use and put after their name. Don't be fooled! 😁

There are ways to verify your identity on here, but the :verified: symbol is not one of them.

The easiest way to verify your identity is if you have a website that people already know is yours. You can paste a special code into your website which will verify your address and it will turn green on your Mastodon profile (see here for instructions: mstdn.social/@feditips/1062741).

Alternatively, you can set up a server as a subdomain of your known website address. For example, the European union set up their own Mastodon server at social.network.europa.eu, and we know it really is the EU because the server address is part of the EU's well-known europa.eu domain.

watching hundred rabbits, a whole two people, speedrun an alternate-history timeline re-implementation of everything that was close to good about my first 10 years of computers really puts into perspective how wasteful and inefficient the industry is

they've accomplished 90% of the utility in 1% of the time and lines of code

there's something significant being demonstrated in the uxn space and it's way way bigger than two kids on a boat making weird retro styled software

Whether it's Go, C#, or Swift, I don't think it's a great idea to write code in a programming language dominated by a single megacorporation.

I created a dedicated page on my website for all my bot projects, past and current: vectorpoem.com/bots
Includes links to each bot's source code depot!

In case anyone cares, here are two open source fonts I use on any desktop computer that lets me customize fonts:
Inter, a variable width sans serif: rsms.me/inter
Iosevka, which has several flavors including a nice monospace I use anytime I'm reading or writing code: typeof.net/Iosevka

Next week I'll have been doing WAD Wednesday for 4 years. I'm proud of that run, and I think it's time for a hiatus. Next week's stream will be the last for a while.
Tonight though, starting same as ever, at 7pm PDT: twitch.tv/jplebreton

Uusin tupsahti postilaatikkoon. Hyvältä näyttää!

Olen tässä joulusta lähtien rakennellut pikkuhiljaa korttipelimoottoria (MtG/Hearthstone-tyylinen).

Noin viikko sitten sain kortteja ja pakkoja generoivan järjestelmän toimimaan ja löysin moottorista pari bugia kun botit pelasi satunnaisesti generoiduilla pakoilla noin 100 matsia.

Seuraavaksi olisi tarkoitus alkaa kiinnittää moottoria moninpelialustaan ja miettiä peliclientit rakentamista.

Tampereen Radioamatöörit ry järjestää perusluokan radioamatöörikurssin etänä keväällä. Labilla on jo aika paljon amatöörejä mutta mukaan mahtuu. Labin asemakin saadaan käyttökuntoon toivottavasti joku päivä. #oh3ne #ham.fi oh3ne.fi/ajankohtaista/peruslu
