Greetings cybre.space denizens! I ran my own instance for a while until it ate itself :) In that time I saw that some of the most interesting denizens of the Fediverse originated from this community! I love chatting about just about anything but especially , retro-computing, games, and science fiction, or Freemasonry. I build clouds by day and chase bright shiny things by night :) I look forward to engaging with you all!

"Years ago some journalist described the Icelandic banking crisis this way: imagine you have a dog and I have a dog and I agree your dog is worth a billion dollars and you agree my dog is worth a billion dollars, so we trade dogs and then announce that our combined worth is now two billion dollars. Bitcoin is like that, only the dogs don't exist."

@feoh Michael's a badass, and don't let him tell you any different.

My favorite new command: zoxide is like a faster z / autojump / fasd.

Summary: it learns your "cd" commands, then lets you jump to one based on pattern matching. In the event of a tie, it picks the one you've used most frequently and recently. For instance, if I type "z do" it executes "cd ~/Library/Application Support/MultiDoge" for me because that's the best match for "do" in recent history.

I didn't even know I'd been missing a tool like this.

@selfsame I have such a nice rig these days I really wanted to start learning some Blender, but I also just learned I probably need to take a course on algorithms, so, not today :)

@feoh @profoundlynerdy @lanodan @popolon I have an acquaintance who believes plaintext is the root of all configuration evil; All configuration files should have binary formats and come with editing tools that enforce validity.

I see where they are coming from, but I disagree. I think the idea of having a linter for every file is a good one.

Actually, looking through Factorio's About -> Licenses tab is pretty fascinating. It really paints a picture of how this game is implemented.

Allegro + SDL + a bunch of other libs + Lua + a METRIC TON of very clever unit interactions and AI make for one super compelling game.

Just goes to show you don't need the latest swank frameworks to create amazing games!

Major brain fog today. I was thinking to give myself a 2 week break from caffeine but 9 days may have to do. Can't afford to not be razor sharp at the moment. My current project at work is really testing my mettle.

Oh this could be very, very bad. Turns out my new favorite game Factorio is moddable right down to the rivets in , which I find super delightful to code in.

Backs away from the API docs page slowly.......

Back to coding on HexoSynth today. I finished the basics of the data structure for the hex matrix. The NodeConfigurator allows placing Cells with a Module/Node type and given inputs/outputs (3 + 3 = 6 side). The NodeExecutor then receives (via a ring buffer) the changes when `sync()` is called in a readily allocated data structure. You see a test case in the picture of this.

re: "hacker" "news" 

@feoh @trickster Any Reddit-wide monoculture, if there ever was one, was already long dead in 2014. Probably broke up before 2011, but that's before I made my first account there.
