So now that brexit has sort of happened I've been seeing a lot of people on twitter calling for "nexit" where they want the netherlands to leave as well and I just can't get my head around how people in my country look at the clusterfuck that is brexit and go "yeah that's something I want"

Not a bad thing per se, they do look quite scenic sometimes. I just hadn't really thought about it that much until I started coming there regularly

I'd not been to amsterdam much before my internship but in the last few weeks it's surprised me how many tourists come there

Though i've been making long days and traveling a lot for my internship, i notice it's really good for my mental health and it's really nice

"Capitalism's growth imperative stands radically at odds with ecology's imperative of interdependence and limit. These two imperatives can no longer co-exist with each other. Either we establish an ecological society, or society will go under for everyone."

-Ursula le Guin

As much as I hate the Qt licensing and the way they require you to preprocess your C++ files, It seems a lot better than building an electron App imo. Startup times and file sizes are significantly lower

Got back from the UK yesterday and spent some time working on converting some framework stuff from visual studio to cmake. I hate how cluttered and messy a lot of C++ projects feel so writing some cmake files to make all my future projects cleaner is really worth it and surprisingly painless thus far

i've not nearly been as productive as I'd want to be recently, going to try my hardest to improve on that and hopefully get some stuff with screenshots soon

It took some time but i've finally managed to build a site with webpack + emscripten with support for std::thread

It's thanks to this mastodon instance i learned about scrollbar-color and scrollbar-width css properties that change the scrollbar in firefox. My life has been changed 😍

I keep coming back to this song this week. youtube.com/watch?v=U5VTEFSRp5 . I really want to make something like this but more electronic at some point, guess we'll see a WIP at some point.

I've been doing ear training for music for a bit now and it's encouraging to listen to songs and recognize more progressions/melodies.

I'm aware audio and video are desynced, couldn't find a way to sync it up properly unfortunately. It runs in a webpage though, which is sync.

It's just a little idea I had, taking cryptocurrency or stock transactions and using them as a basis for generative music.
