Hello. I am the kind of nerd that is able to juggle pixels and vector graphics with ease, emulate sidechain compression using envelopes and use an unsigned int as a bit mask.

If you are a similar kind of nerd I'd like to talk to you. If you are a different kind of nerd I'd like to talk to you as well.

I sometimes pretend to be cool but I don't know why. Let's much rather be the dorks that we really are. Who's in?

If a goose wore socks would it wear them like this or like this

Due to a prolonged fight in our D&D session I'm sad to report that today I will not solve the Advent of Code puzzle on time. Hard nerd life decisions

I'm committing crimes against Italian cuisine. 99% certain that something similar to what I'm doing was the reason the Mafia was invented

I'm finishing up a job in which I'm encouraged to include a silly joke in a thing that will get published near the end of the year (a dialog with a progress bar labeled "Downloading 2020 … Restarting …")

It's _______. I'm getting some coffee.

Today's AoC took me way longer than I had hoped. Still on track though solving both parts on the day they release \o/

Took the opportunity and used Advent of Code day 5 to rework the intcode interpreter I cobbled together for day 2. I have a proper opcode/instruction definition object now and a lean compute function.

I hope we get to use intcode again on a future day

So far I've set aside time every day to solve both Advent of Code parts the day they unlock. I hope I can keep that up

It's only FPGA if it comes from the PGA region of France. Otherwise it's just a sparkling gate array.

You know what's worse than a website that asks you to subscribe to their newsletter in an overlay seconds after you visit the site?

Websites that do this when you visited the site through a link in a newsletter and the URL has a parameter to signal this.

It's almost 2020 and I've just visited a bakery that offers contactless payment for the first time. Finally! I thought bakeries were a lost cause

In case you think I’m joking: I’m not. To be fair, a bit more than half of that was autoplaying video, but that still leaves nearly 50 MB that wasn’t, including 30 MB of JavaScript. This is obscene.

Here’s a fun multiplayer game:

– Each player opens the front page of a news site of their choice, with content blockers turned off and the Dev Tools open on the Network tab
– Players may only interact with the page by scrolling
– First to reach 100 MB transferred wins

This is a very entertaining talk by the creator of Advent of Code about creating Advent of Code

Video game music from the late 80s and 90s shaped my taste in music in a big way.

This goes so far that I regularly fall asleep and wake up with game soundtracks stuck in my head.

Today I woke up to the introduction (Tina's/Terra's Theme) from Final Fantasy VI
