This is the reason why: the keyboard is on the center, and the little pad thingy below the monitor is on the left now
Updated my desk, moved my desktop case to below the table, feeling that I have more space and can sit properly now
Tonight I ported @firstname.lastname@example.org 's Uxn VM to the MegaGRRL hardware (my ESP32-powered VGM player). Seemed like it would be fun, and it was :)
Here is a little demo...
Had to lower the screen resolution (not enough RAM for full screen framebuffers!), but it has sound, output through the YM2612's DAC register. D-pad emulates a mouse. Also had to do a bodge to the drum-rack example to get it working on the lower resolution.
Work from home fucking sucks
Man pages are excellent documentation because (among other reasons) they let me view docs without breaking my flow. I can look up a command from the same terminal I'm using to type the command.
(For some reason, info doesn't have the same flow. I don't know why; maybe because it needs a second navigation mechanism (click on a link vs type 'man <cmd>') and that's too much friction for me.)
So once I had a job interview where a large part of it was, "here's a computer, write a program that does X." They warned me of this in advance and asked which toolset I'd prefer to use.
I said C and Linux running Emacs (I got a Mac, which was close enough). I chose C instead of one of the scripting languages because I knew the core libs would have man pages while the scripting languages didn't guarantee offline docs, something I wasn't allowed to have.
I got the job, BTW.
Latin american. I write code to pay my bills.
Occasionally I write a text for my blog.
