๐Ÿ“Ž ๐Ÿ“Ž ๐Ÿ“Ž What happens when you cross an artificial intelligence with abhuman value-systems designed to maximize profit with no safety-checks in it's self-improvement process with a clicker game? You get paperclip maximizer, that's what:

Woke up feeling awwwww-some ๐Ÿฎ. Now I have two classes of philosophy! ๐Ÿ“š - what an awesome way to start a friday โค

Good afternoon! Just a quick #introduction to set me up around these parts.

I'm an illustrator, animator, writer from the UK, currently working on some games of my own. Supporting #FOSS where I can, and a big fan of #krita.

Excited to see what you guys have to share!

I'm fairly new to Mastodon. I thought I'd list a few of my interests as an #introduction, hoping that this will help me find like-minded people. Here goes:


Alright everyone, it's real late. Goodnight! ๐ŸŒƒ See you all tomorrow. โค

In case any server admins want to run this awesome lookin' theme. I named it hongkong-garden ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฐ ๐Ÿ€

@Azurolu Finally. The legendary ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธzurolu is now following me. ๐Ÿ’ฅ

@Gargron I would be very grateful if you can provide me with an minimum example that compiles all the .scss files in /mastodon/tree/master/app/javascript/styles into common.css and default.css. This way I can replicate the tooling serverside.

@Gargron Can you tell me a bit about 's CSS buildchain, and how it works? I've never used webpack before, and I'm a bit confused by it. I realized I wrote myself into a corner this morning, and I actually would have to do server-side sass compilations of some sort, since I cannot cleanly replicate the lighten() and darken() functions in javascript.

Hello, mastodon :) I'm a historian specialising in the #history of the Caucasus & in digital humanities! I'm also a #writer, game developer (#gamedev), radical left-liberal, painfully British, living in #Vienna, #Tolkien + #DoctorWho fan, folk storyteller, and lover of obscure unusual animals, especially pangolins. Do say hello, or don't, or whatever you please!

I wish there was like a tab with the newest users that signed up on the instance, so I could welcome them too

Goodnight everyone! Let's hope tomorrow would be a better day! ๐ŸŒƒ ๐Ÿ˜ด ๐Ÿ’ค

@Gargron Did you know in the average mastodon tootdeck there are more than 105 unique non-machine-generated selectors? All the way from .app-body to -spoiler-input! ๐Ÿ˜† - that's a lot of selectors!

๐Ÿ™ Just finished the UI boilerplate for , the online maker for ! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Now I just have to reverse-engineer @Gargron 's ten thousand lines of sass source files ๐Ÿ˜ญ.

P.S: @Pasty your in the world's cutest little iframe โค now ๐Ÿ˜‰

#introduction / #introductions

I haven't done one of these with the new account...well, my name is Kara Dreamer, I'm 42 years old on paper but also a very new and naรฏve Seattle transwoman, and I talk about #magick, #chemistry, #Undertale, #chess, the occasional other game, and assorted other things.

I'm also a #pluralityโ€”that is, my personality has multiple foci, that don't remain entirely constant. @kel is my draconic familiar in this, and @chara is Chara.

@shen that sounds awesome but more importantly, why does your text editor have a combo meter?

Just started building my online customizer! I think I'll call it ๐Ÿ˜‰.
