@apalmer27516

we have irc (2x), gitter, discord, it really fractures everyone. gitter at least sends me email notifications

Don't forget the Wiki too which saves some of this useful Q&A into a findable form. Maybe it needs a couple of new features to handle the volume, but I think we could dogfood it all there.

@timor
@apalmer27516 Which wiki do you mean?
Alexander Ilin
@alex-ilin
Probably concatenative.org.
apalmer27516
@apalmer27516
Yes, that's it.
timor
@timor
Is that considered to be the "official" Factor Wiki?

@erg: I am slowly working through the Matrix client specification to see if we could add it to Factor, and tl;dr I think I'd rather listen to an audiobook of the Unicode spec.
I really, really miss IRC sometimes.

erg_gitlab (Doug): We can unite the channels if you want. It’ll need to be run by someone. I’m happy to be someone. But that doesn’t handle the Factor protocol bit.
...
@erg_gitlab: ^^ that thing I just sent the mobile client failed to notify you about
Benjamin Pollack
@benjamin:bitquabit.com

Oh, you're saying use the Matrix IRC bridge to handle the Factor bot?
Doug
@erg_gitlab
it's just a chat server i wrote way back when
Doug
@erg_gitlab
if you want, file an issue with some checkboxes and we can work through it
irc server, matrix client/server, discord bridge/bots, slack bridge/bots, gitter bridge/bots

Don't forget Keybase!
Doug
@erg_gitlab
they were acquired by zoom. i havent logged in or heard a thing about it since. what are they up to lately?
apalmer27516
@apalmer27516
I use Keybase still and they have kept things running but orherwise not a peep.
Benjamin Pollack
@benjamin:bitquabit.com

I assume Keybase was an acquihire
Alexander Ilin
@alex-ilin
I still have the Stellar coins they have airdropped back in 2019. Now worth over 4 times their initial value.

oh same. but it looks like it isn't prominent on their site now, i dont see it anymore

Hey @benjamin:bitquabit.com I see you're in Raleigh, NC from your website. The Triangle User's Group is now much larger than I expected! I can host wood-fired pizza night at my home bakery in Carrboro :)

Heh. I’d be up for doing TFUG. At two people, if we meet in person, we’d be the largest UG meetup in like a year.
Are you in the Triangle Dev Slack?
Benjamin Pollack
@benjamin:bitquabit.com
[m]
Maybe I should see how much mine are worth
Not even sure how to do that though if I’m honest.
Oh. $135 isn’t bad.
I should just cash that in.

No I'm not in Triangle Dev Slack, but could join. I've been doing the bread baking full-time for over 10 years now so haven't kept up with the local tech scene.

Is it possible to use game-world in combination with Factor's UI Framework? Like either (a), having a background widget which renders the game world, allowing to put UI widgets above ist, or (b), Calling a regular ui-world's widget render functions from a game-world based render-loop?

Hi everybody! I am a Factor newbie and want to ask for pointers on running Factor on Ubuntu 20.04 - I am running into the error below with v0.98

My bad. I followed the See link ^^ and installed missing dependencies, and it's working for me now.

Well I just got k-lined from Freenode, so in retrospect I’m really glad we’re mostly on Matrix and Discord now.
timor
@timor
@benjamin:bitquabit.com Out of curiosity, was that prompted in some way? Or a kind of general clean sweep..., I've read/heard about a number of people being k-lined...
Benjamin Pollack
@benjamin:bitquabit.com
[m]
Freenode has been k-lining anyone who disagrees with them. They banned all of IRCCloud, I asked why, and then I got banned. Good times.
timor
@timor
Unfreenode

And that is sincerely the whole story.

@timor
It looks like they are just searching for excuses to get rid of as many possibly dissenting people as quickly as possible...

Welcome. We should probably either bridge these two rooms or standardize one, honestly, but that’s not been anyone’s priority.
