I know it's very VERY impressive, but I figured out how to mirror sprites in 6502 asm.
I wrote collision detection in 6502 ASM for the first time 🔥

Pentalobe screws used in an iPhone 6S. Critics have argued that Apple's use of pentalobe screws in their newer devices is an attempt to prevent the consumer from repairing the device themselves.
you can get replacement screws from iFixIt which aren't pentalobe

@nikivi Nowadays I browse in reader view 90% of the time. I download SO MUCH garbage that I'll just never see.
@neauoire there's a huge drive too to "push the boundaries" of an application through more expressive design or thorough engineering. But those are simply symptoms of viewing design as something that has to have a "wow factor" or engineering that "has to scale".
@toon When I saw "dark mode" coming about, I started to think that maybe in the future, we'll have more control on how we decide to see things, and the content itself will not be themed at all. Just semmantic API design.

@blobyoumu Ah! I took some pictures of 's famicon keyboard the other day.
yes, sorry i don't know if this information will be useful for you, just i am aware that not a lot of people know NES or famicom can be used that way...
@joshavanier I think I'll move the css outside of the static pages. I was thinking, lynx doesn't even try to load the .css file if it's included in the header(which makes sense), so the leanest way would be for it not to be in the body at all if it doesn't impact the site anyways.
I was thinking, if the css is in the head, does it make an extra draw call tho? Like, draw once without CSS, then draw again once it's loaded?

@neauoire What changed, do you think? I've been trying to recover from programming-seems-to-suck-now burn out.
@tty I think it's multiple things, but one is definitely reading books from that era(1980s) when people were so optimistic about computer science, when you could go to radio shack and get standard parts for your computers.
And, I guess, using tech from that era. I stopped using JS, and replaced it with C. And I stopped using things like processing and replaced it with ASM.
Everyday I wake up and I'm actually excited to explore this field. Everything is to be done, lots of unexplored spaces

"And an increase in compostables in the waste stream could, in fact, bungle up the composting process, create more trash, and continue consumers’ addiction to single-use items, detracting from the most environmentally beneficial practices: reducing and reusing."
Back in 1988, one year before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Tilda Swinton took her bike and cycled around the Berlin Wall, together with the filmmaker Cynthia Beatt. What they created came to be known as Cycling the Frame, and it’s a beautiful and surreal document that shows a city scarred by a wall that cut it in half.
The yak is actually made of tiny little yaks, all sitting on top of other tiny yaks, they are all unshaved.

@neauoire ah yes, good old fractal yak

@neauoire naaah i think you're alright ;)
@neauoire I think I know what I'm doing but I don't think I'm doing it right :D
This is so very FOSS.
Wrote some thoughts on electronics, software, longtermism. Trying to make sense of all this in my head.
@neauoire this is a good musing post! low tech magazine has a good post about compressed air energy storage

Mini USB ports are rated by specification for 5,000 plug/unplug cycles.
The micro-USB-B connector that's now the standard for smartphones is rated for 10,000 plug/unplug cycles.
The new USB-C type connector is also rated for 10,000 cycles.

700 bytes of CSS.
My days are spent knee deep in C and ASM, I wonder what my past self would think if it could see me now..
Rebuilt my wiki in C99, simplified a bunch of things, started implementing some of the modules. Still lots and lots of work to do still..
@neauoire 865 bytes of CSS! I’m feeling challenged lol https://cssstats.com/stats?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwiki.xxiivv.com%2Fsite%2Fdotgrid.html

I got to hold my sister's iPhone XS over the holidays and it looked and felt absolutely awful.
I went home thinking that maybe my tastes have changed? I have a vivid recollection thinking that the iphone was well built and designed.
But no, I think the iPhone 4/5 did indeed look and feel good, but the latest devices just lost it.

@xj9 when you say US radio, what do you mean? like AM/FM?
no, radios the can communicate with the US cellular networks
I was twisting and turning last night, I couldn't make up my mind about the new wiki layout.
I'm going to try something tho, I wanna try making it without css at all. I'm not certain but I think I could make something that still looks and feel like my usual things.
Anyways, I'll give it a shot.
That's it, I have begun migrating my wiki to a static site.
In 2017, the body responsible for standardizing web browser technologies, W3C, introduced Encrypted Media Extensions (EME)—thus bringing with it the end of competitive indie web browsers.
Uh… I don't think EME is much relevant for doing an indie web browser, specially one which cares about privacy (you can't really audit EME).
>I created https://hacktivis.me/projects/badwolf about a year ago and so far no one asked me about adding EME (And my answer would be to get the shows by other meanings, piracy included).

idk i don't really want to have a hundred million lines of code involved in this. its really a simple static site my dude.
