“101 story points?!” 😱

I stopped calling my website my "blog" about a year ago. And currently working on a redesign that's less bloggy and more old school website. Because that's what it is: some articles, some demos, some media — it's just not a blog.

Anybody here hinted their fonts to snap nicely to a 7x7 grid?

Been doing simple demo effects for the as warming up for some proper coding. I 💖 the close-to-the-metal feeling of coding 6502 (well, 6510 technically) machine language!

6502 coding woes: optimising your code, then finding out the compression routine made a smaller file of the unoptimised code 😢

Anybody here got a Venn Diagram of

Typography project // Drawing on a C64 \\ Working with Roel

hanging above their bed? No?

Been looking at some Bees And Bombs style animations to implement in 6510 machine language. Fooled myself a couple of times. "Okay, just rotate this 180 degrees" is a oneliner in modern computerings, but on 8 bit microcomputers you'd have to calculate the pixels of each frame, the draw the frame, calculate the next one, etc.

MADNESS!

Is "doing some real proper cool stuff on an old 8 bit microcomputer" on your bucket list?

Where to find job openings for web (font) related work in the type industry? Asking for a friend.

It's like a purple dungaree wearing housewife with orange hair and a 90s synthesiser vomits incense into your ears. It's relaxing.

In my search for non-offensive, generic background muzak that isn't of the nervous-making electronic type, I came across gems I would never admit on Twitter

Love ya, wolfies! 💖

Fun fact! 🎉This opinion is much more unpopular on Twitter!

Everyone seems to agree open offices can be a chaotic mess. But what's the alternative, when having 30 peeps om the work floor, all in rotating teams?

Cubicles?
Every single person an office?

Just finished setting up a little build system assembling 6502 machine language to a C64 executable, and opening in it in a C64 emulator. Went even easier than expected. Feels nerdy, feels _good._

Unpopular CSS fonts opinion:

I think `font-feature-settings` is a lot easier to understand and work with than `font-variant-*`

But please do @ me!
