because i switched instances:
i'm earthnuker, i'm from germany, i enjoy programming, computer-security, reverse-engineering, watching cartoons and anime, and listening to music (~90% heavy metal/melodic death metal), i'm also good at screwing up my sleep schedule, i'm also not very good at talking to people unless they talk to me first :|, uh yeah, that's basically it

i got bored so i hacked up a script to download every release ever from their website (apparently you need "Monstercat Gold" to properly download them, but the stream links all point to to 320kbps MP3s :D) and now i have a folder with ~5000 files, half of them MP3s names something like "<sha1>.mp3" and the other half JSONs containing the metadata for the file, a script for combining both is WIP, also is amazing, causally downloading with 16 connections :D

Our friend Chris finally did a write-up of his 16 core Z80 alternate future cyberdeck, and it is absolutely beyond bonkers:

Code: cleaned up
Console hook: made awesome-er
now i have a proper command interpreter (with help functionality!) hooked into the game's console, i guess i can throw out the "press key to do $thing" logic now (or maybe add some code to allow binding keys to console commands)

i tried to clean up the code, move function prototypes into headers, etc and now it doesn't compile anymore :| more stuff to fix, yay

"SystemError: _PyImport_FixupExtension: module ScrapHack not loaded" :blobsad: welp, guess i'll continue poking this tomorrow

i should hook into the game's python scripting system and wrap my code into a proper python module

Earthnuker relayed

oh heck i almost forgot about ... almost! 4 hours until the first puzzle drops :eyes: adventofcode.com/

look mom, no DLL-Injector! (i modified my DLL so that it can be loaded as a python module (at load time it hooks two functions to prevent an error message from showing up, then it initializes itself and spawns a thread to run its main loop and unhooks the functions), also i managed to hook into IDirect3DDevice8->DrawIndexedPrimitive and fuck with the lighting so everything is flashing random colors now :D... and i can turn off Z-Buffering which makes every an incomprehensible mess :D

i built a quite compact binary counter in , and a 7-segment display, ... now i need to build a converter to connect both :| (the contraption near the top of the image is the "unfolded" version with a larger display, driven by a piston tape that just controls the display segments directly)
