I’m learning more about low level programming through reading The Art of Webassembly, but I don’t think you can beat an explainer with 🐈‍⬛🐈


Why passing small objects by value instead of reference is often faster, explained with my cats 🐈🐈‍⬛


I love it when people just do the right thing.

People should just drop Kickstarter like a bad habit.

I hope everyone enjoys something the way I enjoy writing regex scripts ☺️

I’m now watching a Tram driving competition 🚋. This is happening. It’s fun, interesting, and much calmer than pro-sports ad driven media.

The year is not even halfway over yet, and we've already reached 100 pretalx events <3

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a picture of Lachs. Here she is enjoying her new Catio 😊

I would not recommend using Intel CPUs for compiling Rust. The binary that comes out technically correct, but lacks the warmth and POPCNT that the AMD CPUs can generate. The binary code layering that you can achieve on a 32-core AMD 6969 Ryzen has a completely different level of opcode detail resolution, especially the branching is noticeably smooth (your average amateur might not notice subtle differences when a processor executes 4 billion instructions per second anyway, but true codeophiles will).

Important: make sure you use high-quality shielded gold-plated USB cables to connect your keyboard when typing the code -- no matter how sophisticated the CPU you use to compile, the result will be bad if the input was distorted.

Solarpunk Game Idea 

Wouldn't it be neat if there were a game in the same veins as City Skylines or SimCity that focused on transitioning a community towards a solarpunk mode of being?

Additionally, what if each in-game initiative and technology option had links to resources on both theory and praxis? Right down to diy plans for certain technologies. Not only could it be a fun game, it could act as a educational tool for introducing both the content but also the context.


Time for day 2 of the conference. Thread below. "Beyond Fear and Silence: Universities against Violence" organized by University of Sarajevo and the TPO Foundation starts now!

Great. The IFSC (international federation for sport climbing) decided to stream their climbing world cups on youtube only outside of europe and latin america. If you live in these continents, you have to use paid services. Way to ruin the fun of the sport.

a stop along the road is live!!! a wee little solo journaling game about a character who's chosen to settle down despite all the adventure in the world, offering their hospitality to adventurers coming through. i'm real grateful to this community for finally giving me the kick in the pants i've needed to finish this! please enjoy it—community copies are available if needed and refreshed in exchange for comments and ratings!!! 💖
