Let's talk about the ' rune
Thinking about prefixing the ' rune character with a LIT opcode, as suggested by @tebicat.
I've been playing Conway's Phutball a lot these past few days, I transcribed the rules on my wiki if anyone is looking for a fun 2-players boardgame.
@neauoire this reminds me of when i was using plan9, it would make nightly backups and it never came close to filling the drive, even after like, a year.
(copy-on-write backups, but still)
I think the best thing about webrings is seeing the sheer variety and creaitivity of website styles.
So many people put a ton of care and effort into their designs and it's really awesome to see.
(But also, it's totally okay if you use a pre-fab theme, not everyone is good at/has time for web design).
@neauoire A few week ago I discovered combinatorial game theory and found the book “On numbers and games”, guess who wrote it
Unrelated fun tidbit.
Assembling the OS, with a Drifblim, an assembler written in the language it is assembling, takes 1.6 seconds.
Working on an operating system is making me realize some of the shortcomings of the text-editor I use. The OS source is like 50k tokens, and I waste most of my time scrolling up and down trying to locate routines in the massive source file.
This morning I added a simple list of nearby routines to help navigating the project file, it also really ties up the interface together nicely.
Smalltalk syntax may "fit on a postcard", but, it's a postcard that hurts me. I do not like this syntax. It just offends my sense of aesthetics. Worse, I don't think this is syntax I could ever explain to *myself* let alone to kids.
And I survived 8-bit BASIC! But Smalltalk is still just alien to me.
Next time I stop by the Hunted Bookstore in Sidney, I'm leaving with everything they've got by Martin Gardner.
Reminds me of the manual for the soma cube puzzle, also from 1969.
The arbutus trees loose their dark red bark over time, they seem to love growing precariously over cliffs.
It’s always night under the ultraviolet sun.
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.
