Someone worked out how to divide by 10 with the clever use of bitshifts and additions and I’m a bit in awe.
Today’s reminder from Ursula K. Le Guin’s “The Dispossessed” that art is an act of resistance.
@chotrin @nihilazo i have some notes for nicer interop. not entirely trivial, but not that hard to set up.
River City Ransom is so GOOD, wow. Playing it while developing on the NES really makes me appreciate the artistry put into the game. The artwork has a real style to it and the game mechanics are an absolute treat.
Tangentially, I’d really like to focus on making games that are this fun without the beat-em-up violence!

My neighbor asked me to look at his 10 year old computer that’s running slow. Ordinarily I’d be happy to oblige, but I’m booked up until this science fair project is done.
Proud to say that I actually told him that. It’s hard for me to do that, but sometimes you’ve gotta hold space for yourself. :)
Started mocking up the scoreboard in our NES game. Learned a few things about #9front in the process. Namely, there's a programmer's calculator, `pc`! Beats using Perl to evaluate hexadecimal conversions.
Next up is actually populating the data and running down the timer! :D
Today’s been really good! Got a thing working at work, which is always a good way to close out a Friday.
C’s cousin is coming for hangs tonight which should be fun. Last night I got to hang with my friend J for walkin’ and talkin’ at the park. It’s really nice catching up with folks!
Tomorrow I’m hoping to get crackin’ on NESdev in earnest since I won’t have work kicking around the ol’ noggin. I LOVE Saturdays like that. 😊
love pretending like intellectual property law has intellectually sound foundations and is reasonable/sane just to absolutely freak out whenever it actually gets applied and it becomes readily apparent how absurd it us
one of my most formative recent political experiences was researching some property law for a presentation on subjective ontology of land use and finding that it's an incomprehensible mess of edge cases/exceptions
ah yes, the natural state of human society
graeber please come back
I had to leave the house of conformity
In order to make art
I had to be more or less true
To learn to tell the two apart
I had to leave the house of self-importance
To doodle my first tattoo
Realize a tattoo is no more permanent
Than I am
And who ever said that life is suffering
I think they had their finger on the pulse of joy
Ain't the power of transcendence
The greatest one we can employ?
