👨‍💻 Matthieu V. Just came along it make me want to structure my notes/ideas but I don't really know where and how to start... Maybe it would be a great software to start doing some daily journaling
🎲 Jamie I got started on this sort of note taking by picking a specific complex topic I wanted to learn more about. Making it a tool for a clearly defined "project" greatly narrowed the scope of learning to use it! (YMMV)

Diva Oh wow! How are you coping with the curfew? I hope you are safe and well.
🎲 Jamie Personally, doing fine -- playing more video games than ever! The main inconvenience I theoretically see would be buying food after 8pm, or forgetting something during my one allowed daily shop. I do have friends who I'm worried about though, who have had their workplaces or positions shut down due to the restrictions. And good luck to you as well, sounds like things are getting a little scary over there.

Miso What are you current projects?
🎲 Jamie Thinking about reproducing my local mountain range (in a stylised way) in a game similar to Pokemon Snap.

🤔 David 37-42 degrees Celsius and sometimes higher is usual for summers in Bakersfield, California USA.
🎲 Jamie Similar to our summers here in Melbourne! Though we just had a 17 degree day and it felt like spring had arrived -- hard to imagine how much warmer it'll get by the end of summer.

🧿 Andrea Why did you decide to learn Esperanto and not Spanish? They seem very similar
🎲 Jamie Pretty different set of (linguistic) considerations between learning a natural and constructed language IMO. And cultural too, I imagine!

🎲 Jamie Anybody like tofu? My mother recently asked me what I enjoyed about it, and I kind of struggled with the answer. I think the taste is quite cardboardy, and yet I eat it with pleasure (when prepared well). Maybe it's just a unobtrusive vessel for fats and flavours.

😕 Fine That was fantastic! I'm partial to the Mel Torme version, but she was swinging it as hard as Mel. I'm definitely looking up more Andrea Motis. Thank you!
🎲 Jamie And thanks to you for the Mel Torme recommendation-- what a voice!

😕 Fine Do you like jazz? You might like Shubh Saran. I don't know, there's a lot of different kinds of jazz. It sounds a little like an instrumental Dave Matthews Band (real fans call him "Dave").
🎲 Jamie I do like jazz! I recently heard this wonderful version of "Lullaby of Birdland" ( and immediately decided that it's time to work on my jazz guitar skills.

🎲 Jamie Hacked together a Conway's Game of Life with configurable survival parameters. Few thoughts: 1. I suspect the usual parameters are the most (visually?) interesting. 2. Might prove that point wrong if I bothered to add customisable starting state. 3. Either oCanvas or the HTML canvas takes way too long to create all the rectangles -- even for this 20*20 grid. Have a lookie:

😏 Yt L. I've done a bit of experimenting with this myself. I reasoned that there are a finite number of "games" of life - you have 3 actions (grow, stay, die) and 9 possible neighbor counts, so there are 3^9 potential rules. I tried computationally searching this space for the most "interesting". Didn't have great results.

🎲 Jamie When you say "forum", I think that's not far off what I'm feeling here.

🏒 Lucian Marin 57 folders in the projects folder between 2012 and 2019. You know the one that's finished.
🎲 Jamie Finished! Should we infer that there won't be many new developments on Subreply?

Miso Do you play any games?
🎲 Jamie (Re)playing Dark Souls 3 at the moment. Enjoying it far more than I did the first time. It's a wonderfully-built game in many ways, I think I was just a bit tired of the series the first time around.
