@cassidyjames It sounds like something you'd see on a high-end VCR in the 80s!
This 💯 And I’d even say you’re going to be a *better* engineer if you’re kind. Why? Because others will want to learn from you, so your knowledge and skill will spread, and other will be eager to help you when you find an area to grow.
Good morning 🌞 You can be a great engineer and be kind. The two are not mutually exclusive.
i was wondering how "pico racer" does engine noises, given there are no built-in functions to modify sound effects... turns out it literally modifies the memory containing sound effects #pico8

Incredibly thorough history. I love stuff like this.
I just picked up "Sayonara Wild Hearts," and it's as incredible as everyone says it is.
Between that game and the comic "Goddess Mode," I'm starting to notice a distinct "hopeful cyberpunk witch" aesthetic. Tarot cards made of lasers. Mythical beasts that are also computer viruses and also metaphors for overcoming adversity.
Is there a name for this genre? Any recommendations for more stuff like this?

@monorail Would it be cool if GitHub (or Codeberg or GitLab, etc.) had federation?
As you mentioned, git itself is decentralized. From the command line you could fork or merge from one service into another. Why not provide a UI and common conventions for doing that?
@z That's totally fair. Thanks for explaining that!!
I love concise language, elegant design, strong coffee, and jazz.
