anyone done any foley/synch work on Linux? I'm interested in possibilities of establishing session workflow with editing facilities - so import export of formats that are compatible with video/film/picture editors (whatever they are using).

would anyone share their experience and links to possible floss software tools?

Sometimes I wonder how different the U.S. would be as a democracy if our media spent as much time on day-to-day international news as they currently spend on celebrity gossip.

20-year-long war: media silence

U.S. withdrawal from 20-year-long war: takes over full news cycle

(Also, good morning, fedi! I exist, I'm just overwhelmed.)

Trying to get back to novel-writing (has been seriously disrupted due to illness/new game).


(I get that the last draft was mostly big-picture structural and character edits, and I need to go back and redo the prose, but... aaaagh I don't know what I'm doing, why did I decide to write a book, aaaagh? this reads less like a real book than the first draft did, aaaagh.)

I basically want gender to work IRL the way it does in Dwarf Fortress.

I think a lot about how rural rage makes a lot of sense and how leftists are really fucking up by giving up on rural areas.
But then the leftists I know living and working in rural red areas have been called 'far right sympathizers' because they're in it for the long haul changing people's minds and doing solidarity work rather than...just argue with people. Be their neighbor. Work with em. Live with em. Be in community.

I need to know:

If you consider yourself neurotypical (like you don't suspect you have asd, adhd, bpd or anything in the spectrum), do you enjoy small talk?

Playing around with exporting for VR with Godot tonight; just for fun, nothing serious. Surprised and impressed by how well-documented and straightforward this was. <3

Note: pretty sure my injury was more DeSantis's rollout policy than the vaccine itself. (I had to go to a drive-up clinic and wait 2 hours outdoors in 100 degree weather. And I'm in a high-risk group due to EDS.)

Trying to fill out my follow-up for the vaccine injury report. Has anyone else in the US filed one or had any results come of it? (Still not sure what happened, only that I lost a month of my life from it. >_< )

Being bipolar means routines are one of the main focus for stability.

I've tried, abandoned, and tried over again many routines but nothing sticks with me. Either I get triggered and go in a new phase and let go of my prior stability, or it's a routine a bit too strong for the strength I have while living with CPTSD and OSDD.

So, I'm just asking this here because this instance has a huge amount of character per toot :

Do you have any app helping you managing your routine? Not something like habitica, but something with simple good simple visuals which helps you seeing what your week is going to be and easy to manage?

Thanks ~
If it works on both a /e/ phone and a computer that's definitely a plus.

Gets work erased by software issues on Linux.

Me: This is no good I’ll have to use Windows

Boots into Windows

Also me: How much of an issue is it really if all my work gets erased… 🤔

Why does it cost so much to build things in America?

Researchers have ruled out some of the more obvious potential explanations for why these projects cost more in the US.

As transit researcher Alon Levy writes in a report for the Niskanen Center, “This is not about our wealth: there is no correlation between a country’s GDP per capita and its subway construction costs. Nor is it about geological factors: the biggest factor behind a project’s cost is what country it is in, and costs are fairly consistent even across different geologies ... This is purely institutional.”

And when it comes to roads and the bulk of the high costs — “the new construction bit” — Turner says even though he has “no idea why those prices are increasing,” he can “eliminate a lot of things.” Turner explains that common theories like unions or the way we’re building roads or where we’re building them (for example, in more urban areas) are not supported by statistical evidence.

Time is money, money is power, power is delaying transportation projects
