It is such a relief, you know, when the rest of the world is reeling from major social upheaval and general distrust, to come here and watch people share their excitement about making their own text editors 😊

Redesigned the scrollbar so it shows both where the cursor is, and what the viewport is looking at.

Also added copy/paste.

starting integration of #gui > controls over behavior of "anchors" (the dots you click to activate a point) + display of data on the right, with connector (unusefull but i liked it)
#design #typo #gui #vector #graphic #godot #polymophcool

a personal project that i've come to appreciate is my screenshot garden, a small curated mirror of my desktop screenshots folder.

it is really just an online directory tree with a few automated processes on top, but even so i've liked having it- a little folder of time spent browsing, working, and collecting which bundles itself up for you

i've written out some instructions and template code for the workflow, so you can build your own;

I open hackernews once a year when someone I know ends up on the front page, but today, first post goes like "Chemistry of Cast Iron Seasoning: A Science-Based How-To"

Maybe I should check more often.

*Rendering text atop baremetal*

Mu can now render text atop baremetal x86.

Try clicking around from akkartik.github.io/mu/html/bar

The boot-up machine code reads a few sectors from disk, configures a keyboard handler, and loads a bitmap font (2KB for ASCII, with the option for more).

I use GNU Unifont. I believe that means Mu is now GPL v2. So stated. IANAL and I try not to think about software IP. But a font? Copyright seems reasonable there.

Next up: a text editor!

Edited my website with my own text editor for the first time today.

@neauoire this is heartbreaking.

Every time I saw @pla's cycling-related toots, my day got a bit brighter. A few times they actually got me to move my arse and get out on a bike.

I followed him for years. The #fediverse (and the universe) are a bit less sanguine without him.

#FuckCars

Oh shit, @pla got hit by a car..
He was one of the first person I've ever followed on the fedi. His unique mixture of of tech and bicyles will be missed 😭

He died doing what he loved.
Fuck cars.

We are on Mastodon and down for some autonomous social network shenanigans!
