My favorite thing to do on Twitter now is to respond to every "promoted" tweet sarcastically.

After finally figuring out some direct video access, I've posted my modifications to Lua (based on 5.3.5) for the 100 computer.

Most interesting is probably the Rainbow-specific library that is compiled in by default:

git.rainbow-100.com/cgit.cgi/r

Episode 81 of the Jeff Reads His Book is out now! There's a sandwich in this episode! I feel like that was a major theme in Bringing Balance. There were a lot of magic sandwiches in that book...

My 8088-powered running MS-DOS feels orders of magnitude faster than the i5-powered Mac running Catalina sitting next to it...

I love having to add these kind of comments to my code for later...

I inquired about a used, first-run, caseless clone on a forum that was for sale. USD 550 seems a bit steep, basically their price new, but the forum wouldn't allow me to reply anyway, so I couldn't tell him/her "no."

I have to keep reminding myself to stay away from the stuff. I'm not a fan of a large portion of the "community."

VTE, an essential library that basically provides terminals in most GTK+ applications that have them (including GNOME Terminal), is a poorly documented heap of shit.

Just wanted to share...

If anyone has an alternative library, let me know.

Political surveys asking for which candidate I would vote that only include democrat, republican, or not sure are stupid.

There's a near 100% chance I won't vote for either, but that's not an option.

Episode 79 of the Jeff Reads His Book was released yesterday, which is freakin' late! There's a new character in the book, and the name isn't awful!

Spent the last hour or two trying to get this Mastodon instance back. Something went horribly wrong with an automatic update that killed the Raspberry Pi server.

Disabled unattended-upgrades, so we should be good now.

What the hell is this? Ugh, creepy GNU post... I’m embarrassed to follow them on the bird site.

In 1993 Infogrames rushed the release of Alone in the Dark 2, and as a result it came out in a near unplayable state. And then instead of rebalancing it they included a teleport that skipped the entire first part of the game in the CD-ROM version, and threw in this "SECRET DOORS" disk with later floppy releases.
So what was on that floppy? Well, it turns out that it's nothing but a six sets of saved games. It's not even noted which parts of the game they lead to! Remember: $9.95 value!

Got my replacement ear pads from Koss for my wired portaPros today! They sound glorious!

My NeXT Cube makes me angry. They were terribly overpriced and under-powered computers. Please stop treating them as if the were a miraculous machine. If you own a modern Mac with all its limitations, you're living the NeXT nightmare endgame: locked-down machines with excessively proprietary APIs.

Episode 76 of the Jeff Reads His Book is now available! Wondering how I can possibly equate an ancient, magical, underground fortress with the mall? Listen in to find out!
