I should have played the melody to "Dynamite" - Gong over this.. I can hear it!

„Das Rad der Zeit“ gehört zu den Fantasyzyklen die ich nicht gelesen habe. Die Serie ist bisher jedoch ziemlich durchwachsen…
Die Bücher sind auch nur so durchwachsen. Hab das als teenie gelesen. Bis mir irgendwann klar wurde dass der Autor die story nur unnötig hinzieht um Geld für noch ein Buch und noch ein Buch zu melken. Und dann starb er unverschämterweise auch noch ohne es fertigzuschreiben.

Paar gute Ideen warn aber schon drin.

"Sorry, I was speaking on mute"

We've been doing rolling partial remote for a long time, but I don't think a single week goes by without most team members saying this at least once, including our manager and me. 🤣

Are you using Zoom? Their ui is especially bad wrt knowing if you're muted. Citrix until 2-3 years ago was great here, we never had that problem.

Teams is bad compared to Skype, as I can no longer use the mute control on the headset cable, need to be in the Teams window and click or use hotkey

I don't agree with every aspect of this blog post. But the main points are correct. Container packages, such as #, # and # are the wrong way. They are a waste of resources (technical, ecological and economical) and dramatically increase complexity. Don't use them.

another huge, successful evening of gluumy work in the books. I love masto - some nights it's just a place to scream into the void about nothing profound, and other nights I get introduced into ideas that radically alter a project I'm working on for the better. thanks, @technomancy!

Isnt it because we all want to be accepted within our communities ?
Therefore if we think or do things that others find objectionable we think we shall be ostracised or even assaulted.

Advice for people new to Mastodon:

If you are going to post a link to an article - please take the time to remove the tracking from the link before posting it.

(In other words, find the ? in the link and delete it and everything after it. THEN post the link.)

It only takes a second or to to do, and it prevents websites from tracking people across the internet.

Neat way to see all the big, popular data centers (hello, Hetzner Helzinki)

Or to explore smaller, less popular hosting providers.

maybe gluumy is a good excuse to finally try something that is not git. I mean, I'll forever be using git at work because it's won the industry, but pijul has always intrigued me, and now has the docs to actually be discoverable and experimentable!!

Ugh. Elevator music and generic synth voice. Hard pass. I stopped watching after a minute.

Seriously, no matter how bad you think your voice or your accent sounds, I guarantee that it is heaps better than that monotone generic synth voice crap. 🤮

I know, it's work to record voice (I've done it a few times), but it's worth it.

Wife is watching "the good place" which is kind of a rip off of that one season of lexx, but at least there's no murder and torture all the time.
@chillderburg it's one of the best sci-fi shows ever, extremely unique. But it's a German/Canadian production, so I guess it's understandable.

@alderwick I can't come on irc right now, but I've been toying with an idea and I'd like to have your opinion.

I was wondering if it would be a good idea to make it so the assembler merges sequences of byte literals into literal shorts. I've made a VERY POOR implementation of that in uxnasm to test, and in left there's more than a 100 bytes saved, and it makes the rom considerably faster.

I haven't been able to implement this in a way that doesn't make an absolute mess in the source yet-
yeah it has to be done on both pass, it makes quite a large mess.

Ideally it would handle all the literal byte runes `#`, `.` and `,`. I think I have just found a clever way to do one of the passes, but I'll keep you posted. If we can figure this one out, it would be a pretty good improvement.
#
Andy Alderwick mastodon (AP)
The way asma deals with the two passes is a different approach than uxnasm, it'll be good to let you know how.

The approach is to treat the two passes as similarly as possible, so instead of just counting bytes in pass 1 à la uxnasm, it “writes” them out to the ROM: the only differences are that in pass 1 the writes don't actually go to a file and if it doesn't know the value of a label, it makes up a junk value. With this approach, a hack to pushbyte() affects both passes equally…

@alderwick Do you remember what the literal with a length of 1 is about? https://git.sr.ht/~rabbits/uxn/tree/main/item/src/uxnasm.c#L285
Andy Alderwick mastodon (AP)
No, I haven't noticed that mode! From looking at the code, “#” is _not_ equivalent to “#” but “LIT 'a” instead. I certainly haven't coded that in asma.

I’ve finally cracked it after several years.

I’m off for the 5 days before the night shift so I stay up later and later over those 5 days so that I’m straight into the rhythm.

In the seventies, before desktop computers, both SF media and contemporary commentary portrayed data centralization as a huge threat. Both the surveillance issue and the labor capital issue. Then in the micro era, that earlier view of the computer as a scary spider was recontextualized as a joke, as an unfounded boomer fear. Who needs to be afraid when there is Windows 95 on every desk?

And now here we are.

People don't remember how much Usenet sucked.

1. The architecture sucked and was super fragile and expensive. Redundant in the bad, fragile way instead of the resilient, robust way. More like mirrors than instances. And posts would go missing or be read out of order.
2. The mental model was frustrating with the tree group hierarchy. I heard you liked subreddits so we put a subreddit in your subreddit so your group could be a group of groups.
3. The metamoderation, as in, creating and propagating groups was messed up.
4. While the actual group-level moderation sometimes was absent. Spam city.
5. And the culture was, uh, a mixed bag. At worst a mix of reddit, mumsnet and 4chan.

And at best, pure gold, and so much of that gold is now lost because Google bought Deja News and borked it.

Naw, mailing lists were where it was at. Hundreds of cool people all from the cozy comforts of your mailing app.

Finally a OK cyberpunk documentary divided in 3 pieces! (lot of explain and tell about the culture) And this documentaries explain everything very well (so far) starts by the origins on books/movies/games but it does not sit there like other corporate documentaries do, it moves into ideology, anti corporate, anti dystopian sentiment among comparing our current days with what was told and hackers are been denouncing for years https://yewtu.be/watch?v=sttm8Q9rOdQ # # #

Perfect timing just watched the 2nd part, 1st one watched some time ago, and downloaded the 3rd, I like it at least the 1st 2 parts. Like you like they analyse different media but also goes deeper and how it was represented or how some just take the looks of it.
