My Bio

likes: elves (obviously), nature, science, RPG/LARP, fantasy literature, computers & Tux penguin and some computer games, J.S. Bach L.v. Beethoven and Black Metal, cooking and eating interesting food, most thing that contain chocolate chocolate, spring, sports like wandering and swimming but I also like bow shooting and Tae Kwon Do, (looking at) artwork and photography (looking and making), spirituality, psychology, cats, the air after a rain and much more...

dislikes: AI "art", Eclipse, corrupt politicians, winter without snow, stupid people (that might mean a lot of different things), too much maths, Mircosoft/intel's business behaviour, (negative) stress, music that doesn't really touch me but that is often played everywhere you go in town, bad RPG techniques, setbacks in life (who doesn't?), getting awake too early in the morning and much more...

Current Residence: here in front of my box

Favourite genre of music: Metal, NRW, classic (Beethoven, Bach), some medieval

Favourite style of art: Nature photography, realistic style paintings (but of fantasy/scifi content), some pixel arts

Operating System: Gentoo Linux mostly

MP3 player of choice: a few (e.g. audacious in Unix/Linux, winamp2 for W32), portable: Cowon (plays OGG-Vorbis and FLAC!)

Shell of choice: bash (as most penguins I guess), popping flower (that's a pyrotech)

Wallpaper of choice: varying

Skin of choice: my own? (computer related: default skins most of the time for media players as well as games)

Favourite cartoon character: I don't read so many comics, but ElfQuest is good. The walking dead is great, too!

Personal Quote: I'm an elf. I'm allowed to do that.

The world is in a mess - can we please fix it? Environment, the war against Ukraine, starvation, blights that still haunt the world (not just Covid-19), and here, there still is this this pesky Eclipse interface and now we got AI "art" pressed upon us. One doesn't have to do everything that's technically possible. There is no need to empty a bucket full of shit over mankind. Because, maybe, it simply is a bucket full of shit. No matter if this might be technically fascinating, but nobody thought about the consequences in the long term. It is not "just" that nobody was asked if we want our work cannibalized, not "just" that this is a license violation, since hardly anyone offered art as a playground for "AI"s; in general it is soulless and it will crash arts, artists and artistry as we know it. People do not really understand computers. The computer just spits out a random pixel agglomeration but is hardly aware of it being an image. Yes, it is fast, yes, it is advanced, but it

Canceled Core

-- Canceling Core -- So I cancelled my Core membership that I once had bought to support my green arts paradise. Okay, back in the days they also claimed "Core" would be ad-free then and some other benefits, but the only feature I might ever have used was mass upload to if you happen to have a larger posting session, well, and being free of most ads/tracking crap. *sigh* But I didn't see a point in supporting a radical change like Eclipse any further. Eclipse was uncalled for, it's absolutely unfinished and it means change for the sake of change, not for actually improving things. Workflow is down the drain, and it is slow (JavaScript as usual) and buggy. It scared away a good lot of people. And it scared the cat. :p So I asked and was given what they labelled a "courtesy refund". I'd rather have my "good old green" back, but so be it. -- Downfall of Art Platforms -- I did notice the slow dwindling of these kind of platforms, indeed. Elfwood vanished completely, which was
