Hi friends, I've been working on a Basis Universal texture format decoder in Rust, in order to learn more about compresison, optimization and textures. I'm writing a simple log in the readme so you can follow my progress if you'd like.

Time to power through some shit code. Bliss Signal is exactly the fuel I need

I'm working on my first Rust crate - it's a radix sort. The benchmarks look really good, it's quite a beast tbh. I'm pretty excited!

@jakub daniel benneworth-gray's design newsletter 'Meanwhile' has been solid: danielgray.com/newsletter — would love to hear more recommendations as well, i love the format

I subscribed to a few newsletters recently. I was a bit sceptical at first, but it's growing on me. What are your favourite newsletters I should be reading?
