It has been bought to my attention that everyone I know who eats them prepares a grapefruit slightly differently.
I for instance cut the skin off and pop the segments out with a knife.
My parents just slice it into wedges and bite the flesh off the skin.
A guy at work uses a special grapefruit spoon, and his mother a grapefruit knife.
How do you prepare yours?
I spent quite a bit of time this afternoon sitting in this ancient oak with the 3yo.
We identified a moss, saw 3 types of butterflies, saw a deer and I told stories about trees are magical and have secret names that they will only tell to people they trust the most; so you must never give a tree a name, because it’s rude to the tree.
We gathered some cornflowers on the way home for mummy, but they ended up in a puddle.
So here is the idea now.
lizzard - A little cli tool that parses files in my own lizard syntax into html.
tiffey - Takes an output file name and a contents string as input and created the static page in the output file.
A shell script to tie the two together.
I am questioning if the tiffey part really need to exist or if I should just do that in shell script.
I find myself drawn to projects that provide very little real practical purpose.
The amount of times I have created something, or started to, and the main thing people have asked is “whats the point?”.
The truth is, there usually isn’t a point. I am mostly creating for my own amusement or interest.
I have touched on this before I think. My usual response is to shrug and say “why not”.
Because a project isn’t ‘useful’ or can’t be monetised it’s considered pointless. But to me it’s still fun and worthwhile.
Is this my inner absurdist coming out in my works?
A few years ago my wife asked me what I thought the point in life was and I said something along the lines of “there’s not one, the universe is cold and doesn’t care, but looking for non existent meaning is a fine way to pass your time”.
And only now I find out about absurdism and apparently I’m an absurdist. 🤷🏻♂️
I am still not sure providing a full kernel that provides a metaphor such as everything being a file has a huge amount of relevance on uxn though.
As an extra thought:
The memory manager is also going to have to be in charge of swapping what the vectors point at between applications.
It’s not much use swapping from a text editor to something else and back if the memory manager doesn’t also swap the vectors in and out for each application lifecycle.
Maybe it does have to act a bit more like a traditional kernel than original intended.
In return the host system gives not a hoot about how the uxn processor deals with it’s useable memory locations.
Anyhow, you see where about I am right now.
This is all very rough. I really don’t see the need for the traditional bootloader/ kernel implementation here though.
There is an argument to be made that the memory manager is a kernel, but really it’s only half a kernel living in user space. It cares nothing for peripherals at all, leaving all of that up to the host system.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
