The #BBC Computer Literacy archive is available at https://computer-literacy-project.pilots.bbcconnectedstudio.co.uk/
That's my TV viewing covered for some time :D
"A slice of computing history has been made public, giving people the opportunity to delve into an archive that inspired a generation of coders."
267 TV programs and source code made available to the public. Awesome :)
I spent last night refining my understanding of the Electron's (BBC's little brother) ULA cassette logic.
With only a few more features to add, perhaps the BBC should be my next core?
⏩ Starting to win the battle that is implementing an optional turbo mode for loading from tape with the AcornElectron fpga core. Show more
First two methods were a partial success but too unstable on some games. As the saying goes though, 3rd times a charm.
#Elite now loads from a virtual cassette in 50s vs 5m:6s in normal mode.
Hacky in places due to working around timing dependencies. The original hardware wasn't designed to operate with a variable load rate.
Anyone know of any #fdroid forks or patches for an alternative list view for the latest apps/categories?
Tried over the last months to get used to the new layout and it's just terrible.
To feature an app, that layout might work for the top two but alternating it for the entire list makes it unreadable to me. My eye is constantly drawn to the large cells and skips the small but equally important cells/apps.
So many other improvements let down by this layout 😭
Is HCI not taught any more?
Linux 4.18 gets Valve's Steam Controller kernel driver.
Developed via reverse-engineering. Allowing the controller to be used with any Linux application.
It will not conflict with the official Steam driver: this one detects if anyone (e.g. Steam) is using the hidraw device and disable itself if so.
This driver brings tinkering around with 3rd party utilities to an end.
So much looking forward to for Linux gamers!
My AT-RT was yet again amongst the first units to bite the dust. I guess it just stands out too much as the only finished figure I've painted! 😭
Ordered a second core set from Amazon https://amzn.to/2HuuDHs and looking forward to an 800 point game :)
There's some kind of drama about forking going on, I can't bring up the energy to really look into it, but I'll just say that in a federated universe forking is neither a threat nor a crime, it's just fine because everybody still talks to each other.
So let's all remember we have users to serve and pages to render, and keep on keeping on.
Isn't the whole point of Mastodon being both free software and distributed, to help avoid drama over software feature/option choices?
Don't like what @Gargron is implementing, or how the instance you're on is being run, you have the freedom to move to a new one or start your own.
This freedom is such a powerful feature of Mastodon that forks are imo a good thing, more choice for all and a reason to avoid hostility.
Appreciate the freedom baked into the core of !
France confirms that Matrix (and Riot) is the basis for their upcoming secure communication app for official government use, and will be 100% FOSS! Exciting times :D
I'm finally starting to get back into flying Falcon4 BMS http://benchmarksims.org/ now it's working in wine (v3.5)
including MFD extraction!
I was surprised to find TrackIR working too. Mainly thanks to the efforts of the LinuxTrack project https://github.com/uglyDwarf/linuxtrack/wiki
With #Rocksmith 2014 also working nicely in wine, I'm one happy gamer!
Version 0.2 of Cougar Utility for Linux now available.
Allows flashing new firmware, upload of tcm profiles and pre-compiled TMJ binaries as well as configuring the Cougar's user/default axis, button emulation and manual/automatic calibration.
Generation of manual calibration data still requires Windows for a one time setup.
Is it just nostalgia? I'm not sure, but with 700cr in my wallet and my eye on an ECM system, I know what I'm doing this evening.
That's right! Selling food to the Yellow Fat Felines of Qutiri http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Qutiri_%28Rough_Guide%29
Vulkan can now run on Mac as MoltenVK is now open source https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/vulkan-can-now-run-on-mac-as-moltenvk-is-now-open-source.11297 #Vulkan #Valve
Totally unacceptable behaviour from #fslabs https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/02/flight-sim-devs-say-hidden-password-dump-tool-was-used-to-fight-pirates/
Legality aside, this is the kind of "feature" as a developer we have imo an #ethical and professional obligation to refuse to implement.
Game dev and developer of the Acorn Electron FGPA Replay Core.
