we need resizable columns in mastodon, exactly like in this UI!

and ofc not using live resizing, but with the gray dotted/shaded line while resizing for performance!

Release blog post:

kind of considering to go to FOSDEM because it conveniently fits in my schedule and I could easily take the car or (possibly not-so-easily) take the train, but I don't really know of a lot of talks to go to there and traveling is so expensive

(maybe anyone on fedi want to share some hotel/hostel/bnb/room/whatever to cut costs? xd)

Any #dlang people going to be at FOSDEM this weekend?

Has anyone suggested a casual meetup yet?

if you implement 3D audio, please make sure there is always at least a minimum volume ratio for both left and right channels. I hate not hearing anything when facing away and only having one earphone in!

watched this let's play and they defined the sex as only 0 or 1 so I found this pretty funny probably just generating the UI from code making you choose between the known sex "0" and "1"

struct Character {
string name;
bool sex;
} this looks pretty weird, electrostatic forces are really neat though

Guide to transform from color to color in monotonously colored images, in this example make a wood texture the same color as another one in GIMP: [1]

- First open both of your images as files
- Use the color picker tool (O) with "Sample average" enabled and set to something reasonably high to get the average color of your image
- Open your image you want to transform
- Add a layer with the average source color first
- Then add another layer with the replacement color next
- Set the replacement color layer blend mode to "Divide" [2]
- Click on your replacement layer and "Merge Down"
- Set the blend mode of the new merged layer to "Divide"
- done, you have now transformed your image from one color to another [3]

TIP: you can make your source image grayscale first to avoid hue issues and have a more uniform result if desired [4]
