When you realize there is no self or selves compassion becomes easier.

Suffering of others is your suffering

The dying forest is you dying

Nourishing the world is nourishing yourself

finished playing "In Other Waters", i found it very calm and meditative and i really like UI based stuff ( expecially when the color theme switch to adapt the mood )

If you want to know more about why we bought a ruin in Puglia, southern Italy, and what we hope to make out of it (a retreat, or stopping place, for creative waifs, strays and outsiders), you can read what a friend of ours has written on her GoFundMe appeal for us.

"I find the vision of freely trading ideas, techniques, and code appealing—I am passionate myself about sharing information and ideas ... I want a world in which there is a strong population of craftsmen developers, who deeply care about the quality of their software, and who mentor each other to further pursue the limits of computing.

Unfortunately, throwing our code [at and to] large corporations—will not get us there... "

one of the few phone videos i took while in the woods over the past few days. this cute little moth kept landing on me and licking me.

experimenting with some more new things in 8fl. first is the volume column. assigning a random stream of values to volume makes for interesting variation! the other is midi cc control functionality. i connected my akai mpk mini to renoise and used the new cc form to extract values from its knobs in my live expression. towards the end of the video i put in two cc forms to control the range of volume values and then im just playing with the knobs!

It's raining today, wasn't sure what to do so I went ahead and finished the implementation of minesweeper.rom(3.2kb). Then I thought maybe adding theme support might be fun, and yes, I should have had it from the beginning.

A summary of a counterfactual history scenario I've been working on every now and then:
A non-fossil alternate history for civilization and computing

the second track ( Transfixed ) from the new caterina barbieri album sound a bit dungeon-synthy and it's very cute

you can try it at ravel.neocities.org/ !

I don't know why anyone, other than me, would ever possibly need this, but in the case you're that person looking for a cli tool to generate spritesheets from TGA files, well, it's your lucky day.

Every week, I figure out more of the missing blocks to have Hiversaires running on .

I'm not there yet, but I found a scheme to create a single oversized rom containing all the assets of game and unpack them on load to make them usable.

For games like Oquonie or Hiversaires, which have large assets, I'd like to still distribute a single .rom file, I'm not interested in having like 10 "disks" in a zip file sort of deal.

i have the house to myself for a few days -- living with 3 other people, it was an exciting moment. but i find that the opportunity for alone time isn't as seductive as it was before i lived alone for 3 years (some of which was during quarantine).
still, it's a nice time to work on projects.
a friend long-term-loaned me a video synthesis eurorack module, the story of why they got it was a bit sad, but i'll put it to good use.
