On the opposite, when i come here i always discover wonderful stuff.

Opens twitter. Our french dumbass is officially presidential candidate. A former (dumbass) minister thinks "omicron" is hidden propaganda for "Macron"... closes twitter.

What is there on TV tonight 😂 ? I think this :youtube.com/watch?v=FYTZkE5BZ- looks very interesting (and thanks to the one who mentioned Tsoding on (I don't remember who it was.) very instructional to see other people coding.

"And if you talk with them off the record and ask "what do you really think? How bad is it really?", what they will virtually always tell you is that it's almost certainly worse than what we publish, because we only publish what we can prove. "

@neauoire the other day you talked about BQN characters on IRC. Is it still in your plans to use APL-style characters for uxn ?

Omg ! I did almost nothing and the ppu works ! (need to handle the palette, but it shouldn't be difficult). It is a perfect fit with Arduino's TFT_eSPI library :)

"a source of joy" i love the expression ! thanks @sejo for the workshop, it gave me some inspiration :) (i had to make a little something before going to bed)

A Plea for Lean Software - Niklaus Wirth (1995)

So many pearls of wisdom in this paper; wish I had read it four years ago when I started programming.

"Reducing complexity and size must be the goal in every step—in system specification, design, and in detailed programming."

"Truly good solutions emerge after iterative improvements or after redesigns that exploit new insights, and the most rewarding iterations are those that result in program simplifications."

@alderwick is there a place to report a bug ? (I think i have found a little something in uxn-fast)

%MIN2 { LTH2k JMP SWP2 POP2 } 😂
you can find the code of my little   brute-forcing tool here : github.com/max22-/uxnbruteforc
it is a little bit messy now, if you have some ideas to make it better, don't hesitate !

Pretty excited... %IN-RANGE { INCk SWP SUB2 GTH } ( a b x -- x >= a && x<= b ) it looks like it works, but not sure how yet ^^ brute-forcing

French government just entitled the right-holders to tax refurbished phones for their own profit, in the middle of #COP26.

Why can't all these open source DAWs have a bit more fun with it? It all seems so homogeneous and boring. And you end up with homogeneous and stale music.

Make up some new conventions. Add a gaming aspect. Give it a face. Maybe you make so it's like being a gardener, but for sound? Add in a physics engine! The possibilities are endless.
