Glory To Ukraine! Fuck (Vladimir) Putin! Stop the War! Punk Special Edition - How-To Send A Stop The War Message To The World With Your Profile Picture

Hello,

  For a change a public service "stop the war!" announcement in the
ongoing pixel programming - yes, with ruby - series:

The world has changed forever (and it's not the blockchain, it's war
in Europe!).
Send a fuck (vladimir) putin! stop the war! glory to ukraine! message
to the world with your profile picture (such as your pixel punks, apes, etc.)
with the flag of ukraine in the background.

Yes, you can. See the glorytoukraine script [1]
to get started with your own punks showing solidarity with the people
of Ukraine. Example:

     require 'pixelart'

     # make ukraine flag (background image 24x24)

     UKRAINE_BLUE = '#0057b7' # rgb( 0, 87, 183 )
     UKRAINE_YELLOW = '#ffdd00' # rgb( 255, 221, 0)

     flag = Image.new( 24, 24 )
     flag.compose!( Image.new( 24, 12, UKRAINE_BLUE ) )
     flag.compose!( Image.new( 24, 12, UKRAINE_YELLOW ), 0, 12 )

     punks = ImageComposite.read( "../awesome-24px/collection/punks.png" )

     # let's do a 10x10 grid with a 100 punks preview
     ukraine_punks = ImageComposite.new( 10, 10 )

     punks.each_with_index do |base,i|
        punk = Image.new( 24, 24 )
        punk.compose!( flag )
        punk.compose!( base )

        # note: mirror, that is, flip image vertically (right-facing
to left-facing)
        ukraine_punks << punk.mirror

        break if i >= 99
     end

     ukraine_punks.save( "glorytoukrainepunks.png" )

Questions and comments welcome.

Hello,

Хули ты мне пишешь?
Сам иди туда, мразь.

   I only speak a few word russian. With the help of a online
translation service:

   Hey why the fuck are you messaging me?
   Go there yourself, you bastard.

   May I answer - I am Austrian (and a humanist believing in universal
human rights etc.):

   Yes, my grandfather was there as a soldier and you know the
greatest of all Austrian
      was about to destroy Russia forever. Not sure if you have any
learned anything from
    history.

      I stand in solidarity with the people of ukraine and, yes, for
your "cancel culture" friends it should
now be time to ban you from this mailing list for supporting the
aggressive war and invasion started by Vladmir Putin in Europe
  after all that happened in World Word I and II with the "grandeur to
restore the Russian Empire" or whatever.

Go there yourself, you bastard.

    Note, I am in Europe and Austria is almost next to Ukraine (and
Russia). If you think European will just stand by
on the sideline and watch a lunatic dictator gone beserk you will be mistaken...

     Cheers. Prost.

Hello,

THIRD TIME SO HOW

ABOUT YOU GIVE THE TRUCK DRIVER POSTINGS A REST AND LET OTHERS FEEL GOOD
ABOUT THIS “RUBY” POST AGAIN!

   For some context if you are American (living in a bubble) - this is
9/11 - the "European" version and will change the world forever -
this is not about some fringe anti-corona COVID freak protest or such.

  Try to have a looksie at the New York Times, see nytimes.com

   Today's headline reads:

     RUSSIAN FORCES MOVE TO ENCIRCLE KEY UKRAINIAN CITIES

   Anyways, the hope is that a show of solidarity for the people in
Ukraine and sanctions inclusive - yes, personal right here - kick out
Vladimir Putin supporters of the war right away from the mailing list
(they are welcome back if the war stops) - will put on pressure
    to stop the war.

   Anyways, to make it easy on you here's another ruby pixel art script [1] -
this time it turns punks into two-colored silhouettes in the blue and
yellow colors of Ukraine.

     require 'pixelart'

     ## ukraine flag colors

     UKRAINE_BLUE = '#0057b7' # rgb( 0, 87, 183 )
     UKRAINE_YELLOW = '#ffdd00' # rgb( 255, 221, 0)

     ## read in right-facing punk composite
     print "==> loading right-facing image..."
     punks = ImageComposite.read( "../../awesome-24px/collection/punks.png" )
     print "OK\n"

     ## lets do a 3x2 grid with a 6 silhouette punks
     ukraine_punks = ImageComposite.new( 3, 2 )

     punks.each_with_index do |base,i|
        background,
        foreground = (i % 2 == 0) ? [UKRAINE_BLUE, UKRAINE_YELLOW]
: [UKRAINE_YELLOW, UKRAINE_BLUE]

        punk = Image.new( 24, 24, background )
        punk.compose!( base.silhouette( foreground ) )

        ukraine_punks << punk.mirror # mirror, that is, flip image
vertically (right-facing to left-facing)

        break if i >= 5
     end

    print "==> saving left-facing image..."
    ukraine_punks.save( "./tmp/glorytoukrainepunks-silhouette.png" )
    puts "bye"

  Cheers. Prost.

Not saying Russia is wrong or right but perhaps you Euros can stop
pretending to be holier than thou and think that The current Ukrainian
government that came to exist in its current form by a violent deadly
UNdemocratic COUP in 2014 is acceptable. How can you special EUROS pretend
that AZOV Fascist thugs aren’t actually maiming killing and terrorizing
eastern Ukrainians for 8yrs simply because they speak Russian.
I mean for goodness sake Austrians should be experts on spotting Fascists
wouldn’t you say?

Hi, Gerald. First thanks for your tutorial code on drawing a picture in Ruby.

However, it will be wiser and much more acceptable if you remove all the political background and the f-words from your contents and the subject.

If you are sending this only to mix your emotion into Ruby codes, acting as a rights fighter and then to pollute this list, go outside and tell them to your best friends and your neighbours instead of shouting out here.

Hope I could receive pure Ruby codes and discussions from your address next time.

Hello,

I mean for goodness sake Austrians should be experts on spotting Fascists wouldn’t you say?

  Not sure if that is a rhetorical question:

  If you invade a (smaller / weaker) neighbouring (and yes, democratic) country
  in Europe (after all that happened in the 20th century - World War I and II)
and threaten the world if they help the people of Ukraine with a
nuclear strike - if any protest in your own country gets violently
suppressed and so on. You don't have to be Austrian to see that the
mask of the dictator has fallen off and the world has changed forever.
  How can you stop the brutal aggression of Vladimir Putin (and its
supporters)?

  Trying economic and yes, personal sanctions is a first try before
the unimaginable escalation happens.

  Cheers. Prost.

PS: To make it easier to show your solidarity with the people of
Ukraine I added a first README [1] with examples
to the glorytoukraine scripts - yes, in ruby - and you are welcome to
post questions, comments, critique and more
to the dedicated pixel (punk) art programming forum [2].

In your entire paragraph you don’t even acknowledge the fact for 8 years
Ukrainian troops or paramilitary troops o government orders have been
ACTUALLY killing Eastern Ukrainians. You never bothered to ask if life is
so wonderful why do Eastern Ukrainians want to leave so badly? Turning a
blind eye to atrocities is how the NATZIs marched across Europe.
Europeans are the ones in their little special EU zone so trained from
their central government they don’t dare question their masters.

JY JY:

I think you’re referring to the small minority of eastern Ukrainians who are funded and supplied by Russia to foment rebellion against the democratic Ukrainian government. They initiated the killing in Eastern Ukraine on behalf of their masters. The truth about this situation lies in Putin’s own words: he thinks that Russia deserves to rebuild empire that crumbled when the government of USSR ran out of money and could no longer control their territories.

There will always be minorities in every country that want to separate and form their own government. That is a completely different issue than the naked power grab that Putin and his thugs are currently attempting. Even if the Ukrainian government is in the wrong in reference to eastern Ukraine (which I don’t believe they are), that does not give Russia the right to step in and conquer the territory.

I think you’re referring to the small minority of eastern Ukrainians who are funded and supplied by Russia to foment rebellion against the democratic Ukrainian government. They initiated the killing in Eastern Ukraine on behalf of their masters. The truth about this situation lies in Putin’s own words: he thinks that Russia deserves to rebuild empire that crumbled when the government of USSR ran out of money and could no longer control their territories.

There will always be minorities in every country that want to separate and form their own government. That is a completely different issue than the naked power grab that Putin and his thugs are currently attempting. Even if the Ukrainian government is in the wrong in reference to eastern Ukraine (which I don’t believe they are), that does not give Russia the right to step in and conquer the territory.

In your entire paragraph you don’t even acknowledge the fact for 8 years Ukrainian troops or paramilitary troops o government orders have been ACTUALLY killing Eastern Ukrainians. You never bothered to ask if life is so wonderful why do Eastern Ukrainians want to leave so badly? Turning a blind eye to atrocities is how the NATZIs marched across Europe.
Europeans are the ones in their little special EU zone so trained from their central government they don’t dare question their masters.

I understand the need to keep a global mailing list non-partisan and
apolitical, but as an American, when the world stepped up against the
senseless murder of George Floyd, it meant everything to me, a resident of
Minneapolis, where it happened.

Likewise, what is happening in Europe is eerily similar to hitler invading
Poland. This is not hyperbole, pay attention.

it doesn't matter what's legally considered good or popular, we have to

Putin’s Russia has been fomenting terrorism throughout the world for decades. SWIFT needs to isolate Russian financial transactions completely. The Russian people need to feel real pain for supporting a terrorist.
And yes, Russian apologists should be banned from this list.
