I have finally resolved to get a plotter—leaning towards the larger AxiDraw—and I am real excited about dipping back into algorithmic art, which I sadly haven't been doing for a while now.

I was watching something long on YouTube last night and stopped it to sleep. I resumed the video at the airport this morning, and it started playing mid-sentence with someone saying, "…the only way is to juice a space-weasel."

I should write a Unix utility that runs in the background and plays Neil Cicierega music. I would of course call it lemond.

(To be clear, I do very much enjoy Overwatch-the-game as it exists! But I would also love to somehow explore or experience the world in other ways.)

My brother's birthday gift for me was the Overwatch art book, which is lovely (and has some amazing concept art), but also it throws into sharp relief for me how disappointing it is that people put effort into a beautiful world and colorful characters and then build a game around those things where the only verbs are "jump" and "gun".

I'm trying to suggest naming the conference rooms at our new office after categories from the "Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge", mostly because I want to have all my meetings in 'Those That, At A Distance, Resemble Flies'.

Proposal: a Harvest Moon-like game with a calendar that, like the French Republican Calendar, features a unique plant, animal, or tool for each day of the calendar year, c.f. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_R

✏️ a blog post about Rust, special cases in language design, and why I don't like the `try fn` proposals: blog.infinitenegativeutility.c

There are a lot of ridiculous bits of Overwatch lore, but my favorite is that, in canon, the substance that Roadhog huffs to restore his health is called… Hogdrogen.

@enkiv2 @jamey @natecull @alanz After this conversation yesterday, I decided to write up a blog post that has some concrete code examples and a slightly longer but still introductory explanation of what row types are specifically: blog.infinitenegativeutility.c

My favorite part of @keweddji's newest blog post about programming (blog.infinitenegativeutility.c) is the sample program which is valid Ruby source with duck-typing but can also be statically type-checked by the Crystal compiler.

My second-favorite thing is it's a post about duck typing that uses animals in examples but doesn't mention ducks anywhere.

(Quack! 🦆)

It's easier than you might think to get this working (although right now I've got the framebuffer size hard-coded, and I need to fix that to make it more robust): git.gdritter.com/fb-clock/blob

Yesterday I started to set up Plymouth, got bored, and instead wrote my own boot animation by using Rust+Cairo to write directly to the framebuffer until my login manager has started. This is a pretty good example of my problem-solving approach.
