@benjojo surely it requires more than just you for it to be a group?

For @emf, I’m making Mastodot, which in theory prints toots that are hashtagged for the event!

You wouldn't believe how long I was sending escape commands at the printer before i thought to look for a library...

mattgrayyes OP ,
@mattgrayyes@chaos.social avatar

Great, Mastodot seems to be working all by itself now!
Let’s see if I get some time/energy over the next few days to get it to do some formatting and image printing!

(It’s turned off now, don’t spam the emf hashtags to make it print plz)

I did manage to successfully print images yesterday, I just need to write a more complicated print spooler to deal with it.

Yes. This is the second time I’ve written a print spooler in JavaScript.

Noisy dot matrix printer prints a small picture of Brian Blessed, a larger version of the same photo, then feeds through so you can see both of them and the text “!I’m Brian Blessed”

The hard bit here is that, like all ESC/POS libraries, they can’t speak in my LX-350’s reduced subset of ESC/P commands, it’s expecting to control a receipt printer.
It’s mostly fine. But with things like image printing, I’ve had to bodge the library to get some line spacing.
And I haven’t got the text size options working yet, but I think it’s sending slightly more advanced commands for it so I’ll bodge around it.

So @jamesbridle granted my wish and made a fediverse bot that posts the latest images from the Mars Curiosity Rover.

It is very appropriately hosted on botsin.space: https://botsin.space/@marslandscapes

Social hive mind assemble!

I want to get a cover/case for my iPad - are there any brands that you particularly recommend that are reliable?

There's so many cheap and/or terrible knock-offs that I don't know what to look at.

What would be the funniest animal to have in a game as a dynamite-wielding demolition expert? I'm thinking raccoons & geese are already taken

I have no need for a ute
I have nowhere to store a ute
I would not use a ute if I got one.

But every time this car is relisted and I get a notification, I look at it and go ooooo. Beacause it's blue and derpy: my two favourite types of car.
