@cancel wow this looks like a great video. Thanks for sharing

Huh, my coworker just told me that this is a BeOS/Haiku thing! Love that this type of window management is built-in for that OS. youtube.com/watch?v=EO1Obko6mw

@ice Yeah I love the minimalist design. Are you doing all this by hand or do you have a tool that you're using?

Currently trying out a window manager called TidyTabs (Windows-only), and I'm really enjoying it. I love how related apps visually stick together and follow each other around. I'm finding that using this makes more sense in my head than using virtual desktops--I feel like grouping windows together is a more natural workflow for me.

The best feature, though? I can right click and close all the apps in a group at once when I'm done with them. 😌

The tiny generative art template is now using Browsersync instead of Python as the local server. Having to refresh the browser every time I change anything gets old pretty quick!

@annika I met a Marauder the other week and ... I'm not sure I'll ever beat this one either. I got lucky the last time because I had a BFG, but I'll probably have to lower the difficulty next time I play 😅

@tendigits Hey thanks! I'm pretty new to it (started around November 2020) so I'm kinda just starting out 😅

I tried out Ripcord (cancel.fm/ripcord/) yesterday, and I'm loving it.

It's amazing to see all my Discord and Slack communities in one place, and I like that I'm able to organize and bookmark the channels that I care most about. I think it makes catching up less overwhelming and stimulating.

Tabs are also great—I can have my recent conversations in tabs instead of trying to find them in the sidebar.

Thanks for the wonderful work, @cancel!

I wrote a sorta-minimalist template for my generative art needs. It's not exactly dependency free, but at least it doesn't pull in a ton of NPM packages!

I think it's just right for my needs, and I hope other people will find it useful, too.


I got my copy of Code as Creative Medium! It's a bit intimidating since it doesn't have any code or how-tos, but it gives me some prompts and ideas on what to create/try out next. I'm excited!

I wrote a short blog post on the algorithm for the night sky poster that I recently made: jagtalon.com/2021/02/05/long-e

It reminds me of how simple rules could generate something that _looks_ complex. It’s honestly one of my favorite things about generative art!

I got packing materials and copies of two of my prints ready at home. I have the links up on jagtalon.com/generative-art/ as well so I think I’m ready to start shipping! Kind of terrified though I’ve never done anything like this.

I’m excited to share some art though so I hope things go well!
