Wrote another blog post about the cool DIY thermostat I built a while back.

@neauoire the main image on the orca-c repo readme is broken somehow

@somnius have you seen this happen before? (i'm glad i noticed!)

@somnius there seems to be some kind of mastodon/tootsuite bug with editing your own profile. i was tweaking some minor things. then i came back a few hours later and was browsing, i noticed my account had 'lock' enabled, where i have to review new followers. i never enabled that option myself.

Booting VMs of OSs from 15-20 years ago is a bad idea.

You realize how awful and incomprehensible personal computing is today.

Ready-to-Go pre-made ORCA-C bundle for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) preview release. Just download, unzip, and run.

@neauoire the orca-c readme doesn't have any screenshots... do you think we should add some?

gcc8, clang7, and tcc comparisons for a simple benchmark of the orca-c VM.

how many seconds to build.
how many bytes is the compiled program.
how many seconds to run 1,000,000 screens of the benchmark.

Deleted the 'classic' branch on the hundredrabbits orca-c repo. Current is the new classic.

@neauoire orca-c needs working examples. i have no idea what to do. the example files in there are all old and many don't work, i think.

The deed is done. orca-c now supports MIDI beat clock output. (And MIDI start/stop to go with it.)

Spent half the day on orca-c code housekeeping. (Several hundred of these lines are just indentation changes due to loop restructuring.)

Moved OSC settings to the menus in orca-c, added being able to change it while the program is running, and made it save those settings to the conf file.

Fixed MIDI timing issue in orca-c that was affecting @neauoire by giving useless timestamps to PortMidi
┐(‘~` )┌

Changed in the last few days:

MIDI CC operator "!" added.
MIDI pitchbend operator "?" added.
MIDI "mono" note operator "%" added.
MIDI notes above G are now accepted.
MIDI velocity behavior updated.

The starting octave for orca-c might be different (I can't test the JS version.)

Also note that you have to type '/' to input a '?' character in orca-c. Typing '?' brings up the help.
