I've been working on "lyric by lyric" videos of songs, where the lyrics are shown one at a time on screen. This is Paid My Dues, by NF: v0lttech.com/files/videos/lyri

You can watch it in full, 1440p@120FPS quality, and several other songs at v0lttech.com/lyricbylyric.php

Despite the fact that Unity embeds trackers in all programs compiled with it's software, there's been a lot of interest in seeing the source code in retired, legacy V0LT Unity games. I've begun the process of upload the source code to these programs on the V0LT site. While it doesn't make much of a difference in terms of privacy, Unity users still might be interested in seeing how they work!

So far, Ball Run and iPhysics Sandbox have been open sourced, but expect more coming soon!

Introducing Moment, a simple, FOSS, cloud based sobriety tracker that protects your privacy! Check out the official instance at v0lttech.com/moment/ after signing into your V0LT account. You can also self host it yourself!

Using self hosted Plausible Analytics has made it infinitely easier to promote V0LT in a privacy respecting way. If you're looking for a way to track the success of your FOSS project, I can highly recommend them @plausible

I'm considering remaking iPhysics Sandbox in Godot, so it can be released as free and open source software. What are some features from the original iPhysics Sandbox game that you'd like to see in the new one? What about some features you'd like to see in general for a 3D physics sandbox game?

The V0LT analytics system has been completely overhauled! The V0LT now runs V0LT Analytics alongside Plausible Analytics in order to create the most accurate information possible. While Plausible Analytics is developed by a third party, it's completely open source and hosted entirely on the V0LT server, which means theres no cross-site requests or cookies of any kind!

After 6 months, I’ve finally finished the process of building a new V0LT workstation. I plan to release a specs sheet at some point in the near future on v0lttech.com

Version 1.0 of SGen Libre has been released! It contains all of the base features, including string analysis tools and, of course, the ability to generate customizable passwords.

Check it out at v0lttech.com/sgenlibre.php

I've re branded SGen Desktop Linux to SGen Libre to clear up confusion. I've also added the first of the built in analysis tools! If you want to check it out, you can run it without even having to save it to your machine by running this command on a GNU/Linux computer:

curl raw.githubusercontent.com/conn | python3

I broke down how much V0LT costs to run, and how much is earned from donations. It’s all just estimates, but you can view the chart here if you’d like to see what goes into keeping V0LT alive!

I also listed some of the projects V0LT depends on for people who want to support V0LT indirectly.


I've started working on a version of SGen Desktop for Linux. It's a simple tool to generate massive random strings extremely quickly: github.com/connervieira/SGenDe

I finished making a simple project sign up sheet I call ProjectForm. It's for use in a class I'm taking, but I released it as open source so it can be adapted for use by anyone. You can learn more at github.com/connervieira/projec

In my tech class, students can sign up for voluntary projects, but the sign up sheet is either through Google Docs or Microsoft Word. I’m working on my own sign up sheet webpage, and I plan to release it as open source on V0LT so it can be adapted by others for their needs!

I've made a lot of progress towards a new system to work on V0LT content. After months of being mostly dormant, I hope to return to producing content within the next few weeks!

I've finished moving V0LT's pledging from Patreon to LiberaPay. I wasn't a fan of Patreon's extensive use of Google and Facebook services, and I feel a lot more comfortable using LiberaPay instead.
