Finished my 2020 project.

Let me call it #6502portable.

It closes the loop between my starting point in 1986 and now. Like a Terminator time line, just backwards.

It's an Atari 800XL on a USB powerbank, video output captured into a Raspi on a 2nd powerbank.

Visuals inspired by Alien movie where computers look like they should. Released in 1979, the year of Atari 800.

I have rarely felt more satisfied.

Boosts welcome.

Anyone interested in hiring a software engineer who is comfortable with low level programming, including embedded work? Now that 2021 is here, it's high time I start considering re-entering the work force.

I'm comfortable working in assembly language for several different processors, C, Python, Ruby, and C++ (in order of most recent to least recent experience).

My professional resume isn't terribly impressive in this area (who does low-level work anymore?), but I like to think that my Kestrel-3 and Kestrel-2 work shows my skills.

Let me know if you think I might be a good fit for your organization. Thank you.

Since timeblock planning doesn’t seem to work for me, I at least create a bunch of tasks for my daily to-do lists, which I want to integrate more deeply in my daily "routine". Stuff I won’t do otherwise, like "Practice French" or even stuff like "Go for a walk".

Does anyone else here have the problem of not being able to follow a fixed-time schedule? What are your work-arounds?

hi Merveilles buddies! It was my birthday recently & this is my gift-idea for ya:

Don't do your own new year's resolutions. Ask your loved one(s) what new years resolutions you should do.

Ask them why. Don't judge their answer. HF!

Happy new year! May the western governments get their shit together this year so we can meet people in person again.

This is the day I get the most use out of my noise cancelling headphones 🎧

It’s that time of the year for me to take a personality test again to see if it checked. I am still ISFP, but my tendencies towards Feeling and Perceiving have increased a bit from last year’s result.

May I present to you this absolute majestic spider plant at my parent’s place? 💚

My mother cuts the offset occasionally so it doesn’t touch the floor.

Alright, new monitor is connected and confirmed to work in the setup that I want to use it in. It’s the first time I bought a new monitor in...8 years? Was it 9?

I am on a holiday Twitter and internet sabbatical...but.

This year, the Chaos Communications Congress is all online, and that means that it's possible to speak at the storied event without sacrificing family Christmas.

Tomorrow at 10AM Pacific/7PM CET, I'm doing two hours for #R3C: a speech ("What the cyberoptimists got wrong - and what to do about it") and a "Fireside Chat" (a reading from my novel Attack Surface with a Q&A).


The schedule is very..extensive, despite the conditions it has to take place in.

"analog Not analog" is now in a public repository.

aNa is a live coding system for visuals, based on #Clojure and #openFrameworks. Mixing generative code fragments with inputs channels in real-time.

It’s open source. You can test it on a virtual or physical PC.
I am developing aNa for my graphical live coding experiments. What i published yet is a reduced but more stable subset of aNa. Documentation and code samples are included.

Please boost.

#livecoding #generative

I really miss this keyboard quality on modern laptops ...

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
