What project are you all working on these days?
I should do more work on my multilingual raytracing project. Also, for the last 6 months I've been playing with the idea of trying a bit of game development. Through that I can do programming, and art, and music, which are all individually things that I want to practice.
I'm grading my students for their Word/Excel/HTML exam. Neat :D Otherwise, I should figure out what occupation to seek for next year.
I created a two column layout for unfeeder.com to use all available white space. Next I will try to fetch data faster.
I'm doing a lot of gamedev. Right now I'm coding a map editor from scratch. It's such a fun thing to code. (MonoGame C#)
This past week I worked on two books and made excellent progress.
I started working on a URL shortener service for the inclined individuals that want to host it themselves. Any must haves in a self-hosted, simple URL shortener service?
I'm working on V2 of socii.network, I hope to be done in Q1 of this year.
I am trying to make an interactive version of Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata
I'm transcribing "The Scoops" in Renoise, which I made with Charlie Brooker in 1996 on an Atari ST. 2 months in and 80% done. Pointlessness taken to a whole new level.
1984 should be mandatory reading for everyone.
I thought it was. / So who should require it, Big Brother?
Philip K Dick seems to be mandatory too and a little bit more relevant than Orwell
what is 1984?
Agreed. Ditto Brave New World, Siddhartha and Slaughterhouse Five.
how do i force dark mode on subreply?
Opera has a dark mode switcher. OS switcher should work too.
The failure of this election (no firm consenus) entirely rests on the supreme court. Whether or not there is or was legal merit a look at the case and a ruling from the supreme court would have brought better clarity to the matter. Texas vs Pennsylvania should have happend and it is a failure of duty on the supreme court.
Indeed. I wonder and it's a bit off topic. Why not couple the electronic vote with a paper copy? You go to your voting place. ID check of course. Go to your booth. Select your e-candidate AND the electronic machine print out a copy of your vote (with some additional mark for traceability). And you give that copy like a traditional bulletin. If the electronic votes match the paper count, you're good. Wouldn't that render any fraud much more complicated? Or is it a stupid idea?
Damned ! Don't use a SD card for a Raspberry Pi especially to build a server, mine break up after 1 year and a half. I'm probably the only one to ignore that :-) Shame on me.
my Raspberry Pi 2 is running my RSS reader (miniflux) from 2019-09-18 without any problem (and some other apps before that) dooes I have good luck or did you have bad luck ?
Where did the version of myself that was excited to program and advance my career go? They disappeared sometime after I got my first development job.
I hear you... :-/
Do you have new passions now or you're just feeling down in general?
@lucian Sorry for the blunt feedback, but that 2-column layout on artificial feed is terrible. It was super simple and clean, now it's a mess. Barely usable on mobile too. The leads under the headlines, which were essential to provide additional context, are gone too. Still hoping this is just a big mistake. Any chance you will roll back the changes?
Oh, sorry. I didn't know you read it. Can you give it some time? I can bring the old layout back, but you can see the latest news without an extra click.
Regaurdless of opinion I will always feel a government should be afraid of the power of the people. Our government should be a reflection of its people and far too long there has been a disconnect between our elected individuals and those who they are meant to represent.
I may be wrong but I think the disconnect is proportional to the amount of corcporate lobbying feeding politicians wallets...
:thumbs_up: Damn, missed it. Gamer-style setup, I see.
A bit late but happy new year to everyone!
Best wishes to you too (:
[Troll warning} C++ is a decent Lisp nowadays.
Janet is a decent Lisp. I like how close it resembles Python.
Oh right, thanks! It is now actually codearti.st :D I needed to clean up a bit. Too many domains.
You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
This suddenly motivated me to take some actions I postponed for a long time.
Damn, the trick I used to get around YouTube's requirement to sign in for age-restricted videos no longer works. And it's a lecture about art at a public museum, why is it even restricted?
I guess it's a good way for them to try to get your ID information. I'm not doing it of course... Maybe try to find that lecture elsewhere. Rumble, lbry, bitchute, etc. Looking at the actual situation, I would not be surprise if they extend that to the whole content... That would be extreme.
Anyone have recommended reading on Front-End App Architecture? Preferably not React-specific, but that's fine. I'd like the knowledge to transfer to other frameworks like Mithril, Hyperapp, Svelte, etc.
Vuejs has excellent documentation and Svelte's documentation is getting better and better each time I'm checking. I'd recommend you to check Svelte first because it's the most different from a technical view.
I really can't stress enough how much valuable information this article contains! fasterthanli.me/ar...
I can't recommend enough to read all of his articles and to follow him on Twitter, he explains very well all the things he do/tinker/debug !
