Following up the last toot, in addition to the new desktop wallpapers for the latest comic (https://dementiaofmagic.net/beans/gallery.html), I tried a vertically-oriented, 9:20 mobile version of the wallpaper (for the laughing variant). I dunno, I think it works out well.
One of these days I'll consider making more vertically-oriented DoM wallpapers for phones and such.
Except, at least on the phone I use, wider wallpapers are parallax-scrolled as you swipe around the home screen, which is pretty nifty, which is why I don't really think about it much.
(well, okay, and I use other wallpapers on my phone anyway)
So in theory Mastodon v3.5.x now supports editing toots (I think?), with edit histories viewable, or at least stashed away in the db somewhere. I'll need to figure out how I should represent this in Mastowidget.
The upshot of this is you'll likely see a few pointless, edited posts here once I start futzing about with that (and I think once the UI actually exists?). I should really make a decoy testing account at some point. That point is not now.
I know some cultures REALLY get into cherry blossoms, but I don't think it's for the *flavor*...
Huh, that wasn't that hard after all. Apart from whatever critical mistake I most likely made along the way that will destroy everything.
Fresh from the Prize Mines, here's A Thing I won from #DB2021 this year. First thing I've ever won from a Desert Bus. Yay!
Your attention please: Round-trip Desert Bus service from Tucson, AZ to Las Vegas, NV begins this Friday, November 12, at 6pm PST.
Everybody on the bus!
The DoM logo's always been a bit troubling, mostly because it depends on a flame I generated once with an ancient plugin I don't remember at all, meaning it's a raster image that doesn't at all scale and I can't remake it exactly the same.
I know some people take issue with the trend towards more simplified logos with flat colors and gradients, but the advantage is that lends itself to vectorization well, which means it scales.
Given all of that, I feel this is an acceptable improvement.
Next time you see a comic whose character poses are all similar (i.e. a conversation) and scoff at the artist for taking so long to draw what looks to you like cut-and-pasted art, remember that chances are what took so long was the artist trying to figure out some way to make the poses NOT be similar and deemed them all to be absurd before falling back to what you see just so they could get the story moving again.
Mario's new voice actor is... you. When you see the movie, Mario's voice is yours. You don't remember recording any lines. Nobody does. They all hear their own voice as Mario's.
When the movie ends and they walk out of the theater, everybody in the audience now has the voice of Charles Martinet. A surprise cameo indeed.
"Introducing the new AMD 6969 XTXTXTX-C! It has a gajillion rendering cores and eleventy bazillion TB of RAM! It's so powerful, your entire life up to this point has been retroactively rendered by one! Wheeeeeeeeeee!"
"Sure, nice, when will consumers be able to buy one, or anything else AMD's made in recent years? Will supplies be improving so that-"
"I SAID WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE."
