Wife brought me a sandwich.
"Self - portrait?" - I joked.
I'm sleeping on the sofa tonight.

"50 Years of #text
A 2021 Journey from Oregon Trail to A.I. Dungeon


Every week in 2021, I'll be posting an in-depth look at one text-based computer game from each year between 1971 and 2021, starting next week with The Oregon Trail. For each game, we’ll take a meaty deep dive into what it was like to play in the context of its original release (on a chattering #teletype, over a dial-up modem in a prototype web #browser, on a brand-new iPad) and how its ideas influenced players and the next generation of makers. When warranted, we’ll dig into old #archives or source code to tease out how each game worked, why it was built the way it was, and what it did that was new, interesting, or successful."

A friend who appeared outside the door last night.
Me and Kråkan actually met her and her brother when they were kittens.
Now they are big.

Enormous Cantonese rap playlist 

Ohh the SCMP is talking about this new generation of #CantoPop musicians! (Serrini is in #GTB)

“For Generation Z, musicians such as Keung represent a new breed –­ eminently relatable and worlds apart from their predecessors and even contemporaries who are viewed as pre-packaged, and in the case of some, overly beholden to mainland China.” 🤔

(I’m working on a pronunciation/dictionary adder for #Cantonese lyrics

Help me do more indigenous education and make anti-capitalist anti-imperialist games at the Silver Spook hui (cooperative/commune) where we're trying to house and feed as is our kuleana (responsibility): (direct support)

@peregrine Have you ever read the Lisp Curse? Forth is equally subject to this same curse I think.

"Lisp is so powerful that problems which are technical issues in other programming languages are social issues in Lisp."

Lot of fun tonight! #ham short wave listening after I moved to a elevated and isolated place for a better signal reception.

The #trike (3 wheels #recumbent bike) is awesome for this because I was able to use my laptop while sitting comfortably in my seat, water at hand.

I did meet NOBODY while staying at this place for 2 hours :D

I have been able to record radios in the 15, 12 and 10 meters bands and also in the 70cm band using a #sdr on #linux Skywave distro (work out of the box)

*Stops toddler from taking trash out of can, because he recently discovered he can*
Thought crosses my mind.

Leftist critical thought at its best:
Why do we make so much waste as a society?
What if we composted more and wasted less?
A zero waste society would be a wonderful goal.

Leftist critical thought at its worst:
Why do we put so much trash in the can?
What if we take the trash out of the can?
A society with zero trash in the can would be a wonderful goal.
