demosceners on twitch/online socializing

category: general [glöplog]
So, there was a demosceners on Twitch thread, but I can't find it again and wonder if it is up to date. In these days of socially-mandated being a shut-in, and remembering that most IRC channels I used to hang out in are pretty dead, where's some places including Twitch shows to hang out with other sceners? And schedules?

I imagine I'm not the only one feeling the lack of social, so this is intended as a public service, not complaining.

I stream Thursdays starting 19:00 CE(S)T, usually lasting a couple hours. Lately it's been hardware-focused (working on an FPGA late-90's era game console) but sometimes I work on demoscene stuff (tooling, some effects) or emulators (Virtual Boy).

#revision (and #scenelounge I guess too) on IRCnet?

I could also set up a Mumble server if people would be interested, or maybe people could use sth like https://meet.jit.si/

Demoscene Discord is still a thing: https://discord.gg/MCDXrrB

I stream most Wednesdays 21:00 GMT/BST, usually for an hour or two. I used to primarily do live shader coding (think shader showdown without the time limit), and more lately I've been dabbling in doing analysis of graphics techniques in commercial games, as well as doing tech breakdowns for all my recent prods :)

This is great so far! Awesome. And keep it with the self plugs as well folks. I wonder if ps' Twitch is still going . . .
Also glad to hear of the Discord, as IRC has been pretty dead when I've tried it except during an actual event.

Don't forget to mention in your next post that IRC is pretty dead...

I'm doing my DJ streams on Tuesday at https://twitch.tv/lug00ber

I'm considering taking up my Friday streams again after not doing them for a while, since I won't be going out much in the foreseeable future.

Not sure about twitch as a "place to hang out" tbh.
Sure its got a chat and buddy system and everything but its still a video streaming platform and mainly about one person (or group) streaming stuff to a couple of others - its more event centered than lets say discord or (the obviously dead) irc.

Twitch, Discord, whatever keeps people who want to interact with people from getting too lonely, doing risky stuff that can get themsleves or someone else infected.

Funny, how we had more than a hundred years to prepare and yet fucked this one up so badly. Humans. Always expecting calamity, and now it arrives.

I need to stop thinking about death toll and economic damage numbers.

So yes, where were we, socializing online.

anyway, thank you folks, sorry for going all negative there.
I rather appreciated the humor from Garg, as that works better on this confused mentality than many things . . .

See you on Discord. To start with.
