@anna @GIMP last time my school it admin suggested the art teacher gimp instead of using Adobe's suite, his first reaction was "wtf is that, I'm not into weird racist porn stuff". Because if you don't know what gimp is, it's pretty off putting when someone even mentions it.

@anna @GIMP For years the most popular modular synth forum on the internet was named Muffwiggler. It took a decade of begging and the dude who named the site had to…*checks notes*…die before anything happened, but they did end up changing the name about a year ago and while I’m still embarrassed to talk about modular synths in public, at least it’s not because of an off-color name any longer!

So uh, maybe there’s hope here.

@anna @GIMP if that’s the case, then I agree

Krita is way better for art than GIMP

libresprite and Pixelorama are better for sprite art

RawTherapee and Darktable are great alternatives for image processing, but unfortunately GIMP/PhotoGIMP is still the main tool relevant in the field of image editing

That said, if you wanna try a web app, Photopea is pretty decent too:

"so my options are to pay $500 a month, or use something called "The @GIMP​" well its just money"

its really cool that everyone hates adobe and is tired of being absolutely fucked over and screwed by them but @GIMP still refuses to change their name to something that's not completely fucking embarrassing to say in just about every company

BREAKING: Free Software Foundation announces that the GIMP ("GNU Image Manipulation Program") will finally shed its controversial name, becoming LIGMA ("Libre Image and Graphics Manipulation Application") early next year.

This is an old project, but by some miracle it's still working and I woke up this morning wanting to celebrate the things I love more.

This Inkplate e-ink screen shows Conway's Game of Life, seeded from tarpits I have on the Internet. The tarpits are programs on my computer that superficially look like insecure Telnet and Remote Desktop services, but actually exist to respond super slowly and make bots scanning the Internet 'get stuck'.

When a bot connects to the tarpit, the data it sends gets squished into a 5x5 grid and 'stamped' onto a Game of Life board. Data from a bot at the IP address 1.1.x.x will get stamped on the top left corner, data from a bot at 254.254.x.x will get stamped on the bottom right corner.

Conway's Game of Life, a set of simple rules that govern whether cells should turn on or off, updates the display once per second. The result is that bot attacks end up appearing as distinct 'creatures', that get bigger and more angry looking over time (as their centre is updated with new data). After the attack finishes, the 'creature' eventually burns itself out.

Despite that description, it's a really chill piece of art that doesn't draw too much attention but I can happily watch for a long time.

Credit for the idea goes to @_mattata, I had been wanting to make a real-life version of XKCD #350 for years before seeing his Botnet Fishbowl project.

banned from dot social for calling German food "mid"

the original addams family newspaper strip was a subversion of the saccharine humor of the daily funnies, the tv show a subversion of the leave it to beaver/all in the family tv shows, the movies a subversion of the family blockbuster, and #Wednesday keeps up in that tradition as a subversion of the YA tv/movies like harry potter, hunger games, and riverdale

its slop but hot dang is it tasty slop

also i like wednesday addam's roommate enid, wednesday is rad but rainbow color vomit werewolf/furry goths are valid too


ok watched the first episode of #Wednesday it's cute and i like it

@ancient_catbus im so sorry there was a great catbus moment but i pressed button too fast and didn't get the screenie :(

Just briefly logged into mastodon and my mentions are mostly people debating my experiences here and whether I was entitled to tweet about them, and I just want to say, I was called slurs for days by people on *other instances* and received a death threat saying that they would do to me what was done to Emmett Till.

Anyone discussing any of this like *I* did something wrong, including by talking about it, is a fucking dipshit.

Have a fabulous fucking day.
