Have been a musician for most of my life and a computer tinkerer for all of it. I'm currently rediscovering my long-neglected love of all kinds of technology alongside my desire to live with less.

Great to be here, and super excited to see all the inspiration here in town 🙏

Out of curiosity, What's your favorite linux distro/setup and why do you like it? Try to say it in 140 characters.

For context, also add in a short description what you mostly use your computer for. For example,I use mine mostly for game development.

Making tests for software is one of those things that when you start is just painful, but shows almost IMMEDIATE payoffs once you get going. One of the rare things that feels as good as it is useful.

@flame Also totally open to any other input if other people feel so inclined. Going to be attempting it with the Minicube64

@flame I'm thinking of trying out some easy advent of code questions (like this one adventofcode.com/2015/day/1) using 6502 to do the work, but am stuck on how to load data in. Have no real idea how one would start, but my first thought is just hardcoding the data in the code but that feels I'm not really learning the good stuff.

Is there a way you would approach a problem like this with 6502 (assuming you would hahaha) to handle string data coming in?

Just picked a bunch of Peruvian peppercorn from my tree out front. Crazy that this is just...out there. And nobody else has taken them. And that the lawn service for my apartment just bags them up for compost. It's free food!

cool fact: the original luddites didn’t oppose technology but rather the bosses using new tech to disenfranchise workers! the bosses then had the luddites murdered in the streets and their arguments were replaced with “tech bad 🤢” to prevent others from carrying on their challenge to industrial authorities

I got my 6502 rainbow scroller on to do 16 colors instead of all 64 and it is MUCH smoother 👌 Still not perfect, but I still haven't tried the double buffering that @flame mentioned

I'm starting to see some people coming to learn 6502 and checking out minicube64—which is just wonderful !

Warms my heart to see workers strike for better wages and better treatment.

In american mythology a comcast branded pair of beats by dre headphones is a very libidinally powerful object, and feeling that level and resonance of brand synergy vibrate from the molded plastic into my fingertips awakened feelings within me that I may grapple with for the rest of my life

#looptober day 10

Thinking about: revisiting sounds from day 6 , and non-linear tempos from day 4. 7/8 grooves.

it's one of those funny things where if I was able to go back and talk to myself, my past self would have done nothing different. It sucks, but was necessary for me to take that long and get to the point I got to before I finally pulled the plug

And in actuality, that was just taking the place of dealing with my own inner work

looking back at me when I was trying to quit social media, it's telling how flimsy my reasoning was, realizing it was just a wild addiction to perceived validation

Here is hoping having one day without facebook opens enough people's eyes to world we *could* have without facebook. The calm and relaxed world without constant assault via algorithm.
