I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool https://gath.io
The attached video is a work-in-progress preview and shows compatibility with Mastodon. My hope is to get it working with lots of software, including stuff like Friendica that supports events and calendars.

Introducing #Botober, a set of AI-generated drawing prompts for each day in October!
I generated these using GPT-3, a neural net trained on a huge amount of internet text, but not on drawing prompts specifically. (This explains a lot)
roguelike devs be like...
Small brain: waste time on assets
Big brain: stick with lofi/pixel/minimal art to give more time to the actual gameplay
Galaxy brain: we don't need no assets, we just put symbols on screen
Cosmic brain: spend time on crafting proper-looking fonts to put symbols on screen

#Minecraft modding is super confusing. Here's a mini-FAQ on all the different modding tools, mostly for my own reference:
Bukkit (aka CraftBukkit): One of the first Minecraft modding tools. Server-side only. Some weird DMCA junk means it's complicated to download.
Spigot: a souped-up Bukkit.
Sponge: Similar in goals to Bukkit, but different and newer. No DMCA junk.
Forge: A different approach to modding than Bukkit. Much more invasive. Optionally includes client-side modding capabilities.
