hello friends!

my work mainly involves programs and music, but also write and make visual art.

my interests are wide but include math, divination, bikes, types, procedural generation, harshness, and solidarity.

you will likely see me talking about uxn as well as various other projects i'm working on.

I've been thinking about moving away from GMail for _years_ but never a real need to do so. But it looks like now it basically won't be compatible with arbitrary email clients anymore??

I documented some of my recent experiments in reverse-engineering the Print Gocco, a Japanese DIY printmaking tool from the 1970s. You can read about it here: nobadmemories.com/blog/2022/05

really need to rehearse some guitar parts tonight but struggling to focus

i think i'm going to create a multiplayer idle RPG that runs over telnet

@d6 Oh sure, that's what they tell you, but then you're the one stuck with 1M open JIRA tasks, all marked show-stopper and all somehow assigned to the obelisks that haven't worked here in a millennia.

bike repair 🚲 

so the sequence of events ended up being:

1. need to patch tube to repair a flat
2. realizing valve was broken, need to replace tube
3. realizing tires were punctured and worn, need new tires
4. go buy new tires, bike shop points out rear wheel is out of true
5. while fixing, bike shop notices rear wheel is actually cracked
5. buy new rear wheel

i'm glad to get this all fixed but it's remarkable where it started and ended 😅

@wicche i think you can define the doom metal space prety well with one of these pyramid charts where the 3 edges are: "stoned", "depressed", and "way into fantasy novels"

tabletop gaming aid opinions 

awhile ago I prototyped a gaming aid that uses a thermal printer to generate stuff (hirelings, NPCs, weather, foods/drinks/potions, monsters, events, maps, mazes, puzzles, etc). The output can be filed away for later reference.

I built it because I don’t like using computers/screens at the table. during COVID this device wasn’t useful but I’m thinking of picking it back up, refining it, and posting a build guide.

if you play tabletop RPGs does this appeal to you?

I found this transcript of an Infocom Implementors reunion chat (Feb 1992). It doesn't seem to exist anywhere else on the Internet, so I uploaded it:

http://ifarchive.org/if-archive/infocom/info/infocom-reunion-conference-feb-1992.txt

I think it took place on the CompuServe Gamers forum.

Funny looking back on a time that thought that Infocom was ancient history, because everybody had left two or three years ago.
