ma_rodda Ok, that's it, I'm starting a thread with all the bits of advice I have to keep in mind to combat related . It'll be a mixed bag, & I'll be adding to it occasionally; note that this advice is tailored to my situation, but feel free to borrow/RT/add.

Chaosfux Wenn man Grillkäse isst, hört es sich so an, als ob im Mund ein Rudel Meerschweinchen über Außenpolitik diskutiert. Ich mag Grillkäse.

@wayfu Wirkt auf mich nicht wie Shaming-Versuch, eher wie eine besonders ungeschickte Instanz der Angewohnheit von Presseabteilungen, jeden Scheiß als eine Gelegenheit zu sehen, die eigenen Produkte zu platzieren.

Herr_Rau Es ist Segen und Fluch zugleich: Ich brauche nur 6 Minuten für ein Elterngespräch im vorgesehenen 7-Minuten-Slot am Elternabend, aber dafür plaudern Verkäufer und Verkäuferinnen auch nie mit mir.

pixlpa 13. There comes a point in every digital artist's life when they find themselves at the edges of that agreement. Image compression gets everyone. Do you:
A. Back away from the edge
B. Explore the edge
C. Brute force your way past that edge
D. Write your own software

pixlpa 12. The unspoken agreement of software developers and users is that they will try to meet in the middle. The developer works in good faith to address the "use case" and the user does their best to avoid "user errors" and "RTFM"

pixlpa 9. As an artist, you can choose any layer in that stack to operate. You determine what level of abstraction (conceptually and visually) you want to operate within. The further down you go, the more likely you will called a Glitch Artist.

pixlpa 7. If you work backwards from the naturalistic render, you will find several layers (a stack!) of technical intervention that had to operate as designed. The tools should have been operated by someone sympathetic to the intended function, with some craft.

pixlpa 6. The opposite of the glitch is the perfectly rendered naturalistic CG image, complete with raytracing, caustics, etc, perfectly shown full screen with absolute fidelity. This is the ultimate drive of the technology developed for images

pixlpa 2. Most of what we think of as “glitch” artistically is the exploitation of an edge case in technology, not a failure mode

Just tried Microsoft Edge. As per my German locale, it helpfully capitalizes English (!) nouns for me while typing. 🤷‍♂️
