A random thing fell out of one of the books when I was sorting them.
The world seems to slowly get rid of X (because it does not work on their macbooks) but the tty is still there. Such progress.
Something I've learned is that when a guy finds out I have a partner who happens to be a woman, he assumes I'm gay and monogamous.
A point in usability in Unix™ vs Plan 9: I can never remember which program to use on BSD or Linux to take a screenshot. Grimshot? Maim? Import? What is all this nonsense.
When I want to do the same in Plan 9 it's just
/dev/screen. I can get its size by reading it. I can save it to an image by reading it (it is an image). This goes with all the other things - they are files with the names one expects, instead of some weird-ass programs with strange names that may or may not work because of environment differences.
Nostalgia hits with Satyricon - The Scorn Torrent on repeat. Haven't been listening that band for a very long time.
Baby's first peephole optimizations. Adding a few simple ones to arm64 compiler on
91 hits on Quake 1 port, but it could be many more if the compiler wouldn't do stupid shit rearranging loads in the wrong places.
But it works! (Quake 1 did not crash)
(yes, I am proud of myself)
Fixed 9front's C compiler & linker to manage packed structs and finally got https://git.sr.ht/~ft/ft2-clone to run on my MNT Reform.
Someday I want to become as elegant and smart as a property test.

Trying to imagine how this would sound as a reggae remix.
