@klaatu I've realized what I love the most about open tools.
You and I are about as close to total disagreement about "optimal toolset" as its possible to be on a Linux System. Yet, you having yours and me having mine don't conflict at all.
I can have vim on arch with a package manager and updates and spotify, and you can have emacs on slack with slackbuilds
Hey Mastodon, here is a quote that I needed and maybe you did too:
"WRITE IT BADLY. Write it badly, write it badly, write it badly, write it badly. Stop what you’re doing, open a Word document, put a pencil on some paper, just get the idea out of your head. Let it be good later. Write it down now. Otherwise it will die in there."

@lostnbronx I had a thought about something you said recently WRT audio vs reading.
I think your style is an odd case where you're writing it. But you're doing so specifically for it to be heard. So, if I later read, say, Street Candles, and hear you I wouldn't consider that a failure. You breathe life into your stories by recording them. Give them an extra special texture.

Ok fediverse, I'm playing with an ... odd little project. I have a movie ripped to mp4, I also have this movie in black and white. I'd like to take part of one seen from the color version and overlay it in the black and white. Suggestions for good Linux tools for this?

The gunboat "Dame Minnie" is falling apart at the seams. Bad pay, an idiot captain, and rapidly-failing equipment. Things can't get worse. Right?
Audio quality is due to the Masto file size limit. Listen/download to a better version (still free) on my site:

@klaatu I'm real sad to say I won't be joining your dungeon crawl tonight. I'd planned on it and been excited for it, but I'm not feeling the best. I need to crawl into a hole and pull it in after me for a while.
Still, THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS. So many of us have said "We need more gaming groups in our community" and you're DOING it.
