The newest game I've been working on, ODGŁOS, is finally available to play! A cute owl, the history of electronic music, shapeshifting snakes and intergalactic journeys inside the Polish Radio Experimental Studio - all in a stop-motion interactive story :) You'll need a browser, headphones and 30 minutes to spare. Have fun!

time!
My name is dos; some call me Sebastian. I made dozens of small silly video and some slightly less small ones too. I'm one half of @holypangolin studio. Sometimes I pretend to be a musician, but don't get fooled. I'm also a living encyclopedia on a Polish rock band "Perfect". Trams are cooler than trains. The more caramel, the better. I've been using GNU/#Linux on phones for ages, which led me to work with @purism on the Librem 5. btw I use Arch, but I ❤️ Debian!

Last week an update arrived in PureOS with improvements for call audio. You should be more legible to your interlocutors during calls; also, the phone now automatically switches to external wired microphone once connected. The whole audio path went through a big overhaul, allowing for hardware volume control with zero-cross and reducing unnecessary amplification that could cause distortions.

Haven't seen people complaining about the changes so far - that's a good sign :)

Dyzio waited 8 years to have his portrait, until yesterday, when I decided to let go of the expectations of it being a perfect black and white ink drawing/me proving that I still ‚got it’. Instead I attempted to paint him with a set of really bad quality acrylic paints I had (can’t afford better ones atm). Hope he'd be satisfied with the outcome;)

Well, this solves the mystery of several unsolicited "hi" messages I've been receiving from @movim's XMPP server lately (that I've been simply ignoring so far). Have a wonderful day folks!

Many programming languages have have cute mascots. On the other hand, "the official mascot for C++ is an obese, diseased rat named Keith, whose hind leg is missing because it was blown off." [1] I sent en.uncyclopedia.co/wiki/File:C to someone on Etsy and they turned it into a plushie for me.

That said, I think that given good curation tools, an optional timeline consisting not of your follows', but your followers' posts could nicely augment already existing local and federated timelines. I've got more than twice as many followers than follows here on the fediverse and I'm sure there are some people I'd like to follow in there - it just isn't easy to browse through 100s of accounts 😞

I'm usually a bit confused when people say that following someone on social media means endorsing them in some way, or worse, when they act upon discovering that someone follows someone. Case in point: I accidentally imported Fedifinder's list of not just my birdsite's follows, but also my followers - and my timeline sure needs some curation now 😫

It did made me follow some great accounts I probably wouldn't find otherwise, so it's not all bad!

I think my favourite part from the thimble sequence in this mini-game from ODGŁOS was the angry flower hair clips;) I had fun making this animation. And lots of back pain. Do you like it?

The thimbles are from all over the world and come from my mom's collection.

is neat! From now on @dos@dosowisko.net points to this account, without having to run and move to my own instance :)

Wanna set it up too? All you have to do is to download https://{YOUR_INSTANCE}/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:{YOUR_FULL_HANDLE} and make it available at https://{YOUR_DOMAIN}/.well-known/webfinger

Imagine you could install any software on any device. The devices you own that don't receive updates anymore, or where you found out that the software is full of ads/tracking. You could replace it, maybe with a Linux distro like postmarketOS running mainline. These devices wouldn't need to be electronic waste. We signed @fsfe's #openletter to the EU to make this happen.

You can sign it, too!

I was interviewed about supply chain security (around 15 min mark) in a longer CNBC feature about manufacturing phones in the USA. In short, it's less about trust concerns with any particular country/govt., and more about reducing the links in the supply chain to reduce the opportunities to tamper with hardware.

Our Made-in-USA-electronics Librem 5 USA phone also got a number of shout-outs. Pretty neat!

Owls are fully cozied up for winter ❤️ I made this little room for my animation a while ago and now I have a difficult time going back to this project. I hope the procrastination will end soon. Wish me luck please!

My latest game, McPixel 3 was written entirely in C from scratch, thanks to that it's very easy to port it to everything!

Plus it's enviromentally friendly! Doesn't use much battery and won't make your fans spin up!

Here's a video of the game running on a lot of different things.

Now that I have a phone that can run a recent Android version (none other than the Librem 5 🤪), I have spent some time on cleaning up our F-Droid repo with silly games of @holypangolin and mine for you to use ➡️ dosowisko.net/fdroid/repo/
