SAFEpress has moved, if you still want to follow me please follow mastodon.technology/@happybein and unfollow me here so I don't keep pestering you!

Sorry this is a manual process, but the move process isn't working between these accounts.

I'll be repeating this toot, so if you see it please unfollow here, and follow the new account if you want.

I've settled on 'peek' for recording my app demo to GIF. The result will be posted!

Thanks for all suggestions, I tried a few, but peek wins on doing the job I wanted and no messing.

byzanz plus several user created scripts also seems good, but messing!

There's a good list of options here: askubuntu.com/questions/107726

I've just stumbled across #LowLevelAcademy and #lowlvl.org.😍
They provide free courses for low-level programming in #Rust, which you can do entirely in the browser. How cool is that!?
It is mainly focused on #networking. Their first #course is already available and they seem to plan a lot more.🎉

Check it out here:

Low-Level Academy has been founded by Nikita and Andrey Baksalyar:

Is there a recommended way to get support from mastodon.

I'm trying to move accounts from mastodon.cloud, have set up an alias on the destination mastodon.technology, but when I activate the transfer, mastodon.cloud says that the destination account "is not back-referencing this account". But it is!

I tried PM to both admins but understandably no response yet.

Any suggestions for creating an animated terminal demo of my app, an an animated dashboard like htop (I'm using tui-rs)? I want to create a which shows the in action.

I'm starting with , but haven't done this before so any suggestions which I can use on would be helpful.

Gargron@mastodon.social
ashfurrow@mastodon.technology

Apologies is this is not the way to get support, in which case feel free to re-direct me.

I'm trying to migrate SAFEpress@mastodon.cloud to happybeing@mastodon.technology and have set up an alias in the latter, but when I try to redirect from SAFEpress@mastodon.cloud it says that happybeing@mastodon.technology "is not back-referencing this account".

Thanks

@raucao in a week? If you really think that, go do it. This guy made £77,000 in a week, and it's because this was seen as exceptional that it was news.

Remember ring tones. People paid lots of money for those because they were locked in, and as soon as that became open (with smart phones) the price dropped and they became free.

@raucao @SAFEpress the example which comes to mind is Linux distros. There's a while world of creativity, not necessarily what *you* value. That isn't my thing so I'd but likely be aware of it if it's there, or on Google play, but if all kinds of stuff which different people with different interests do value.

@raucao ok, that's valid and I've no strong views on that, which is why my comments were not about the designer or people wishing to customise their home screen.

It was Apple's habit of controlling and preventing such creativity that I was commenting on.

I believe that this is what created the opportunity and the demand once someone found a way to do this, in spite of Apple. You don't find this on open platforms for example.

@raucao you are expressing opinions. If you deny that, ok. Another agree to disagree. I can't be bothered to explain my logic because of the way you do this, not for the first time.

I understand that #BorisJohnson's cunning Cummings plan today is to shout "give us all the fish" several times - very loudly - and then go hide in a fridge. #Brexit #ukpol

@raucao you may think that, I think otherwise but I'm tired of the way you engage with me so let's agree to disagree, and go use our talents more productively.

Many ways to learn :
- read a users.rust-lang.org/ discussion in a coffee break, and...
- try the playground: play.rust-lang.org/
- work through the book
- examine the code of apps that interest you
- add a feature to one
- make something simple and then add to it
etc

I recommend all of these.

If we're not clever enough to recognise the problems which the rules for big business create, and to devise rules which correct this, then we're not clever enough to survive as a yet either.

At least not one which delivers the values innate in most humans, but one which creates pain and destruction for ourselves and life in general.

An early picture of me as a teenager in the shed at the bottom of our small garden. Not satisfied with making gunpowder... lateralscience.blogspot.com/20

@raucao BTW I had read the article, and was aware that someone find a workaround which then allowed this designer to offer his product.
