Alright, something about me for #introductions:
I'm a raccoon, willing to fight for better lives of workers and queer people.
I'm around game dev for 10 years. Web dev, marketing, production, biz dev. I'm also making the Czech & Slovak Games Week sale.
Fun fact: I once got banned on Steam for disclosing a security flaw they didn't fix.
Raccoon pics in mentions are always appreciated! 🦝
no but seriously the danger of the continued 9€-Ticket is that it is a slippery slope:
- people would buy less cars
- if we can make it 9€, we could also make it free, getting rid of the ticketing infrastructure and ticket inspection, which would save cost
- if it turns out that can provide public transportation for free, people might think what else could be done that benefits everyone and financed by everyone
- next up people will want a UBI??
- people will be harder to exploit
- less profit
If you didn't know me on my old acc, you have to know this:
I began programming (putting all my energy on learning Python atm) because I'm tired of inaccessibility and lack of disability representation in videogames.
So I decided I would make mine, with a lot of customization and all sorts of mobility aids and other aids, such as noise cancelling headphones for example.
My game will be called "Disabled Revolution"
It's a really important project for me.
More info coming soon!
Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!
How do people have the energy to like, work a whole bunch of hours every day (I usually assume 8 cause that's what most people work I guess) and also do side projects and *also* manage to like, read books and play video games and stuff.
If I work like, one to three hours in a day I just feel completely drained for the rest of the day, and if I manage to work multiple days in a row and have responsibilities and stuff I just kinda... shut down.
Serious question. I want to know how people do this because I have no energy for anything but so many things I want to do.
The worst issue is obviously the threatening owl
Some Duolingo issues I absolutely despise:
- Different currency on web (lingots) and in the app (gems) which aren't synced
- Mobile only features: Special quests, speaking mode
- Desktop only features: Keyboard input (some people say it's on mobile too), practice mode
- Alphabet learning (e.g. for Ukrainian) barely adds new characters
- Limited hearts (lives) - either pay or add yourself to a classroom to have unlimited lives (but that means no global leaderboard anymore)
Duolingo is bad.
I already feel some improvements when I care more about what I eat (it helps not having money so I can't do takeout 🥲), I feel like I have a little more energy and I sleep better.
The goal for now is being able to run 5 km around September, I'm using Garmin Coach for this as I need at least some nudges to do it.
I failed once already because I just never felt like running after the first benchmark run so now I'm going to talk about it more to not keep it just for myself and to feel like I have to do this
trash panda 🦝 eternally tired 😴 they/them let's be friends!
