AFAICT, the wonky behavior is being impacted by the specs of the SD-card that's used.
It might be that micro-brownouts are still happening, and the power capacitors need to be 100uF instead of 10uF.
Also going to increase the RSET resistor's resistance, since I think the Kingbright LEDs might be drawing too much current, even when I set the MAX7219 to "medium brightness" (I suspect it's using really fast PWM, so maybe current draw is still a factor?)
Hardware dev is a nightmare. Going to bed.
Good: the new lag problem gets fixed when you use an industrial-grade SD-card.
Bad: file-integrity-checking is much slower on startup for an industrial-grade SD-card.
Solution: integrity-checking isn't really necessary, because regular users won't be manually editing savefiles.
And because I'm paranoid: I've decided to start using a slightly larger RSET resistor, and higher-spec power capacitors. Just in case it's these Kingbright LEDs causing more invisible brownouts or something.
@body in a way, it's good that it's only one angry wife guy and not like 500 nazis
MY MIND: If I burn my self-hatred to power my mental code generator, then I will be left with no self-hatred and a lot of code...
ME: OK, sounds good. And I will do that by, consciously analyzing the context of my bad emotions, and using that to stoke a righteous and energetic self-confidence--
MY MIND: No no no. Wrong. You've gotta write code while hating yourself. You gotta be an edgy Chuck Palahniuk character
And like, there is definitely pressure to follow a Queer Archetype, and the pressure comes from the interaction between the queer community itself and the normative systems of validation in broader society! But I feel like this has been translated, via 20 rounds of a game of telephone, into the cishet idea of “queer people should be treated as mentally-compromised meme vectors who are being made to self-harm against their will”
As literally every American radical, I love treating Marxism-Leninism as another flavor of fascism, especially when it’s really obvious that I’ve made this decision based on believing regime-change propaganda against one or more countries that Marxist-Leninists refuse to throw under the bus
I’m comfy in bed now. Tomorrow I’ll only be doing some light reading. Monday I’ll be doing QA on Tine’s special-command systems, and then also learning some algebra concepts for a separate project. My new approach is to try to follow a schedule with blocks of specifically-planned “work time” and “relaxation time”, rather than destroying myself by stewing in guilt all day every day
Imagine that your significant other is finally moving into your apartment. You're helping them unpack their boxes, one by one. It's some tough work - they're a bit of a packrat - but you don't mind at all. You sigh with relief as you finally work your way through to the last box. You open the lid and it's a box of old fandom memorabilia. You hand off a stack of old comics to your lover, who rounds the corner with them. Your gaze drifts downward again and in the bottom of the box is a yaoi paddle
I came up with a cool simulist cosmology idea in 2012 (not the basilisk, a different one)
I also write "code" though I would characterize it more as "a swamp"
