Hi! I'm Sigrid, long-time software engineer with passion for low level programming, vegan cooking/baking, analog photography, music, and a bit of electronics.
Most of my development happens on (and for) 9front in C.
Most recently I decided to spend more time on combining two of my long-time hobbies, programming and music, and take it a bit further than just "forever WIP" (https://soundcloud.com/lo-fukk/tracks and https://soundcloud.com/spaekona/tracks).
Thanks, Boris! Same Zoom Meeting ID tomorrow?
relationships in the time of staying home
seems a lot of folk are running into home stress because they're not used to spending so much of their time with their partner.
reminds me of the time a teenaged me asked my recently-married uncle how things were going being a married person.
"It's great," he said, "but every now and then I catch myself thinking, 'why doesn't she ever go home?'"
spending almost all your waking hours with a very small group of people can be hard, even if you love them.
please try to cut yourself and your co-habitants some slack during this time.
With my nephew stuck at home, my brother asked me if I could tutor him before he starts his Comp Sci program at college this Fall. We'll be doing 90 minute lessons, twice per week.
The first day was today and it was fantastic. He is very, very eager to learn and has great instincts. I missed teaching a lot and I really appreciate this opportunity to "start from scratch." I will teach him what helped me the most, and what I wished I had been taught early.
He will, of course, learn C first.
if your #GUI needs to handle login, it should handle any number of simultaneous logins.
putting it in as an afterthought always results in a worse experience.
Enough for today, I can generate stuff but I'll have to do a lot of cleanup, maybe use sprites in a procedural way instead of just generating circles to prevent overlapping

Apparently drawing waveforms by setting bits in 64-bit integers (1=white, 0=black) and then rotating the entire image 90 degrees is faster than doing simple drawing using bytes (255=white, 0=black). Who would have thought.

Just read 'Art History, Science And The Formation Of Blackness Within The White Gaze' by Artist Marcia X. It's brief and amazingly informative, highly recommend.
Our studio has been operating off-the-grid for 4 years and we have documented our experiments here. These notes might come in handy in these uncertain times.
