Hi, I'm the admin here at stream.void.garden

I'm trying to build a small, friendly community for people who make things and want a chill place to hang out

I'm modelling this community based on advice from runyourown.social

I'm someone who makes mostly digital things, generative art, interactive media, and I'm also learning about electronics and modular synthesisers

Yes, I realise the irony of my two pinned posts being "Hi I'm an instance admin" and "I oopsied an entire instance because I'm a doofus"

Free Clothes To A Good Home (UK/Ireland) - Intro Post

I started a couple games of Neptune's Pride if anyone wants to hop in

Neptune's Pride is a long-play game (apparently weeks to months for longer games) about space conquest and diplomacy

The two games I'm in are a short 8-player beginner-friendly one: np.ironhelmet.com/game/4922203

And a longer 32-player game: np.ironhelmet.com/game/5475941

Both are waiting for players to fill the remaining slots to get going

An easy way to make you not spend energy on understand an idea is by spreading the misconception that it will be harmful to you.

"Anarchism means no one protects you" for example. That kept me from exploring anarchism for years because as a trans person I needed safety from a violent world.

"Land back for indigenous people means displacement of everyone else" is another such bullshit claim that kept me from seriously exploring land back politics.

I barely haven't posted anything here yet, so here is something I've been doing lately.

I recently started to bought cameras on flea market.

Recently I bought my first digital one, a Mavica MVC-FD7; a late 90' camera using floppies as a storage medium.
And with the charm of this low resolution, I made a photoshop template file to transform them with my usual aesthetic.
I'm still experimenting with it, but I love it so much.

Mastodon 3.1 released
The main new feature is instance-wide announcements

Me sitting here running a human-sized instance: "Wait, that's a group SMS, we already have those"

Does anyone have suggestions for compressed file formats that deal well with fixed-length files?
ie: I know in advance exactly what size, in bytes, the uncompressed files are
