If when watching this any of you have questions, even incredibly basic ones, like whats a truth table, or whats a gate, I'd be happy, to try and provide context.

@neauoire I enjoyed your future coding interview, I definitely have a better context of where you are coming from now.

Pretty wild I hadn’t listened to mcr since highschool. They had some bangers in hindsight.

Ask for recommendations on twitter, get several spammy posts. Ask for recommendations on mastodon, get actual good responses.

Taking book recommendations, fiction, non fiction, literally no restrictions. Whats the last book you read that won't leave your thoughts alone?

Book One: The Lesson goodreads.com/book/show/414590

Good book ultimately about humanity and colonialism. First contact is made on a virgin island and the alien/human race predictably collide.

Steps so far:

1. Generate tree in 3d
2. Generate 2d polygons for each segment
3. Generate polygon outlines
4. Convert polygons to pseudo-3d (same z for all vertices)
5. Convert polygons to triangles / lines
6. Raytrace lines in small steps to remove overlaps

Thinking about switching off of imessage for the group chats. Whats everyone's favorite non-google non-facebook non-apple chat app these days?
