It's just writing a bunch of data into a memory area that a "VGA device" DMAs into the video buffer. There's nothing fancy going on and the visual effect was a side effect of the emulator clock rate and the data I was putting in the buffer.

Been writing a little emulator for a fantasy CPU inspired by a uni course into the workings of a computer. After numerous branch and math test programs, I finally got it to do a bit of graphics!

Had some fun sabering people to death last night on @gamingonlinux Friday Livestream. This is pure skill and no luck whatsoever. clips.twitch.tv/SnappyBlueCake

Well, damn, I guess it's time to bring out the abacus with all these CPU security failures. Although my desktop has a Ryzen even it is affected to an extent, not to mention even my phone is vulnerable to . What a way to start 2018.

Regarding Pyre, Sir Gilman remains the best.

Rukey Greentail is also the best.

They are the co-best.

Had a creepy moment in The Long Dark. Was inside a house when lights started flickering and there was a green glow in the windows. Walked out the house to find this waiting for me. mastodon.social/media/w6_Zow9C

Goodbye 2017, hello 2018. Please be better than your predecessor!

Twice I've had Audacity eat all my RAM during a recording session (took about 40-50 minutes for my system to start swapping) so I feel I need to re-examine my recording process a bit. Maybe record everything purely with OBS and do audio editing separately?

BTW, I participated in a thing. You might want to check out the thing. If you haven't passed out from all the eating and gift opening already. youtube.com/watch?v=AmU_pAGLJC

Whew, only took me a couple of forevers but I finally managed to move my subscriptions and also trim the list slightly. Was a bit of a trip down the memory lane going through all the channels I had subscribed to at some point which had become inactive over time.

Bleh, moving YouTube subscriptions from one channel to another is a nice pain. Apparently they had a feature to automate it but naturally that got cut out along the way. And clicking "Subscribe" a good couple dozen times tripped the bot detector. Sigh.

Pyre on True Nightwing difficulty is a very intense experience indeed. It really feels bad when you fail and feels absolutely amazing when you pull off a last-minute miracle and manage to turn the tables. I can highly recommend it.

Did my Assembly programming exam and now I am stuck at the campus for the next 3-ish hours. Should I attempt being productive or just browse the nets and play video games?

Bah, phone derped from 100% battery to 0% again. Having to constantly keep it plugged into a battery bank really emphasizes how much this thing is on life support. I guess I know what to ask for from Santa.

Happy 100th birthday, Finland! While sometimes a cold and a dark place, there's nowhere else I'd rather be!

Phew, almost done with university studies for today. Soon I can go back home and actually celebrate my birthday. Woo!
