Contacting me Show more
If you want to ask me something specific, it's best to DM me so I don't miss it.
If you want to message me elsewhere, check out https://noct.zone/contact/.
If you wanna talk about my other projects, mention those specific project accounts and not both them and me.
If it takes me a long while to respond, that's normal, it's not your fault.
the perils of font metrics, continued
(what this means is that the coordinate systems for horizontal and vertical writing orientation are completely offset from each other)
(going to have to figure out what extra magic CJK fonts pull to get this to work, holy shit)
Mermaids, TERFs, and a handy way to donate to the former Show more
In light of glinner and associated dipshits putting Mermaids' Lottery funding under threat, you might be interested to know that they're one of the charities you can pick to support in any Humble Bundle dealings that let you pick the charity.
Just in case you want to support a charity dedicated to helping trans kids AND get yourself some videogames in the process.
I know many people here probably couldn't afford it, but Frontier Dev (Elite, Jurassic World, Planet Coaster etc) are about 19 hours into a 24 hour stream in aid of the charity "Special Effect", who build custom accessibility game devices for physically handicapped folk, and those who've had accidents that means they can no longer play.
But if you can:

Forza Horizon 4 is a game that is cheerful in such a way that I bounce off of it really badly.
aaaand the current development font isn't valid in Windows!
and in Windows fashion, I get no feedback as to why~
(macOS actually tells you what tables it thinks are fucked up/invalid)

Does anyone know of a free macOS app that lets you type in vertical orientation (ie. like CJK characters can be)?

overpopulation Show more
is a myth. Period. It's a lie popularized by capitalists who don't want to have to change their ways.
The problem is not that we have too many people; we as a species produce enough food in a year to feed the entire population several times over. The problem is that corporations would rather throw food away than give it to someone who hasn't paid for it. Food waste (corporate, not personal) is an enormous problem, and "overpopulation" is the myth they use to deflect from it.
losing my mind saw a japanese shitpost that was like "well tumblr died i guess i'll do vero now"
