videos are up for three of the four #fennel conf talks: conf.fennel-lang.org/2019

due to an operator error (I neglected to hit record) the first talk did not make it; sorry!

First there was kung-fu in last week's Star Trek episode and now there's talk of "SQL injections"!

Shocking.

Sometimes, just sometimes read your own ~/.emacs/init.el to find out what sort of things lurk in there

It's my pet theory that the availability of the Twitter-to-Mastodon cross-poster has harmed Mastodon's adoption by giving people an easy way to change nothing about their social media habits, and pretend like they have checked out Mastodon without ever being here.

Every time I bring this up I get responses à la "not all cross-posters!" and well, if you don't think it's about you, don't make it about you

It seems that after I unleashed that CHIP-8 emulator for #emacs someone else felt pressured to unveil their Gameboy emulator: github.com/vreeze/eboy

After some tweaking to get the code to byte-compile, I've made it run at 1.6 FPS (author claims 1 FPS interpreted). Thanks to frameskip you can actually see things move. Here's a recording of Tetris in demo mode:

true programmer efficiency is already hating your code before you write it

comment-or-uncomment-sexp.el

is now on MELPA.

See the blog post about what it does:

I've been using it a lot with .

I remember when OpenBSD got a donation from Adobe for OpenSSH, years ago... A not much from any other commercial vendor.

So that only now using devs are waking up and starting to donate... It took a while, but at least it's happening.

so now that #fennel conf is less than a month away I got a schedule set up: conf.fennel-lang.org/2019

exciting to see this actually happening! now to get my own talk figured out.

I just found out that folks in the Freenode channel #fennel were interested in #yaaps. This probably means that I'll have to stop screwing around with #minetest and kibbitzing in IRC and the fedi so that I can cut code

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

thinking of creating a blu-ray player for hipsters that makes loud mechanical noises when you insert a disc, doesn't load menus and immediately plays the movie (no special features for you), takes five seconds to start and stop fast forwarding or rewinding, outputs composite 4:3 video with hardcoded letterboxes (or pan & scan!), simulates colour bleed and magnetic lines of static rolling down the screen, has a segmented LCD display that always flashes 12:00 unless you can figure out the unintuitive controls, and produces a half-static image with broken colours when you press pause. also sometimes it just destroys the disc
