Pinned toot

Hey fellow tooters, do you know any people around here interested in these topics? I’d love to chat about them, I don’t know who to follow!

- music composition
- electronic music, chiptune
- VJing, live digital performances
- indie video games
- demoscene
- hardware hack (softcore cpus, gpus…)
- programming language design
- operating system design
- drawing, painting
- crafts (woodworking, sewing…)

I probably forgot some of my interests there, but it’s a start!

Boost is appreciated. :3

Do you consume oat drink, soy yoghurt, or other #vegan dairy alternatives?
EU parliament is attempting to ban any terms, marketing, or even appearance of vegan products that are associated to milk or dairy. This includes the terms "yoghurt" style, similar packaging in cartons or yoghurt cups, or even the comparison with milk's climate impact.

While this dairy-lobby-driven amendment is already through parliament, there's a petition to stop it in council. stopam171.com/

Rappel sur la pétition concernant l'AAH 

La pétition pour permettre aux personnes handi de pas être dépendantes des revenus de leur conjoints en est à 84k signatures sur 100k.

Sound recorded with my ZOOM H1! I'm not yet used to it but here is my rendition of April's Fool Jig :þ

My first PVC low D whistle is done! It's not perfect though but pretty nice for a first try. I'll definitely make more with slight adjustments.

This one sounds nice in my opinion and is quite in tune except for the highest notes which require lots of breath to be in tune. I think it's just a little louder than what I expected which is great, I know low D whistles tend to be quieter.

I wish more everyday electronic things could be bought as kits. It really feels nice to actually assemble the thing you're gonna use.

It’s done, I soldered and assembled my instance of the keyboard we designed and produced with @Kooda and @Reptifur :) Just a little thicker than a Typematrix but with low profile tactile clicky yummy kailh switches !

More autistic representation where we aren't jerks please

and also more neurodivergent people who aren't serial killers while we're at it

Trying to write some little programs with Comfy-RV now that it works well enough. Here, a program that just displays all its arguments, including its own name.
#theWorkshop #riscv #lisp #assembly

Fixed a bunch of problems in the generation of jump instructions in Comfy-RV this morning, phiew…
I also have a call, tail-call and return macros that work now. 😁
#theWorkshop #riscv #lisp #assembly

Big ball of #scheme.

This visualizes dependencies between sample implementations in SRFIs obtained by grepping the Git repositories for `(srfi [0-9]+)` and cleaning up false positives. Some not so serious insights (the data is most certainly biased and incorrect):

- Only SRFIs above 100 have sample implementations relying on other SRFIs
- SRFI-146, SRFI-165 and SRFI-207 have the most dependencies (still less than npm packages though)
- SRFI-1, SRFI-145 and SRFI-151 are most depended on
- Some SRFIs are dependency islands, suggesting that they form libraries on top of each other

This leads to a contempt for the past. Too much of what was created in the last fifty years is gone because no one took care to preserve it.

Today I implemented the alt (similar to || in C), while and if operators in Comfy-RV #riscv #lisp #assembly #theWorkshop

I really love how everything is so simple to write with explicit continuations (the last two arguments of the `compile` procedure: win and lose). And De Morgan’s law to implement alt as a composition of the existing seq (&&) and not. As a bonus, the code generated by this is the most optimal one.

for the programming tutorial we've been working on a scheme/SDL playground called interscheme (based on chibi scheme)

vegan food picture, cheese 

Toujours sur les fromages, j’ai testé quelque chose récemment. Sur les premières tentatives de camemberts, ceux qui n’avaient pas de croûte, j’en ai fait fumer. Ça donne ça, en coupe. Malheureusement, j’avais laissé affiner trop longtemps, et ce n’était pas aussi bon que ce que j’aurais voulu. Mais je pense qu’il y a quelque chose à développer par là.

Spent about 18 hours this week working on my COMFY-RV project, an assembly-like language for RISC-V embedded in Lisp inspired by Henry Baker’s design.
I haven’t done much with it yet, but doing low-level programming really is relaxing for me.

(example code in the screenshot is just a program that writes back what it reads on standard input)

Feeling productive today! Have sorted out the basic layout of the switches of my #keyboard in #kicad. How lovely that KiCad saves the files as plain text and by writing some code I have all the switches and their angles exactly how I want them!

Huge thanks to @Kooda for the inspiration to try something like this and for sharing the KiCad files so I could get started so easily.

Next step is to start connecting the switches and LEDs. Will putting an LED under each switch prove to be a nightmare?
