A little 2018 personal technology retrospective:

I randomly decided to self-host a #BBS! This has spiraled into running www, gopher and gitea. It's only going to get worse.

I stopped denying my true identity as :amicheck: Amigan :amiga: and returned to my roots with a classic #Amiga A1200 and a next-gen #AmigaOne X5000. I have the bare bones of a Mastodon client running on #AROS. I returned to C #programming for kicks.

I learned more about port and host scanning than I ever expected (thanks $daygig)! I captured a few flags, had my mind blown at DEFCON, and buy locks from the hardware store for fun.

I bought music on CD and mp3 again. I killed my twitter account; I ghosted gmail and switched email provider. I killed my google+ account. I dumped WhatsApp and convinced most everyone to follow (just 2 more to go). My music and documents from are slowly migrating from Google Play, Docs and Drive.

I learned to love systemd and so can you.

Fight the power! :hacker: :heart_cyber:

How many general purpose #programming languages do we really need? Starting with #basic and #pascal there must be a dozen I have learned (and forgot) so far. Wikipedia has a list of over fifty. When looking at some recent entrants, say #golang, #dart, #rust I am not totally convinced they were all needed.

The result of this medieval circus of little programming fiefdoms is a huge cognitive cost (wasted brain cycles). Introducing something like the metric system could do wonders to productivity

Hi, I’m Thomas! 👋

I toot about #retrocomputing (including occasional fun quizzes!), #cats and #programming, open source and human-computer interaction (I’m the author of the script.aculo.us JavaScript library that was very popular a decade or so ago).

I’ve been using social networks since they were called “BBS” and “Newsgroup” and if you don’t know what that is I invite you to camp out on my lawn and we can cheerily banter about it. :)

so, my dad is a mechanical engineer and i've been thinking about doing some kind of formal conversation with him to see what software engineers and mechanical engineers have in common. best practices, approaches to technology, tackling new projects, that kind of thing. i'm gathering questions and pinging my networks for some ideas.

if you could sit down with an engineer, what would you ask?

retoots encouraged!

My son showed me a game on his iPad called Cargo-Bot. It's a game where you give instructions to a robot arm to move/sort colored blocks. The really cool thing is, it gives you four separate "program" tracks (functions), allows each instruction to be attached to a conditional based on what color block is in the arm's grabber (conditionals) and lets you call programs recursively (loops). It's basically programming 101, but with a simple, visual interface.

Initially, he was trying to brute-force solutions by sending long sequences of instructions, but I told him the trick was to find repeating patterns of instructions and to isolate those into their own "program" tracks. He picked up the concepts remarkably fast.

In any case, other than being proud that my boy is wicked smaht, I think this game could be really useful for adults wanting to learn to code. It gives practical puzzles to solve using a small toolkit of basic concepts that cover a huge chunk of the core logic in real world programming. If you want to learn, but are intimidated by code, give it a shot.

I made background generation from perlin noise!
It doesn't look as good as expected though, stars look stretched out, i want them round.
Got any advice?
