Setting for this morning’s practice. I sat down with the stillness before the day, and played.

Concert in a month. It will be streamed (free) I’ll share a link when it happens. #music #cello

These last few days I started replaying an old game from my childhood, Dark Chronicles on PS2. I have very fond memory of this, and I still find it pretty cool today!
The one thing I didn’t remember is that there are a few quite… sexy… monsters! 😮

Ces bébés ont 2 semaines, et d’ici 2 à 4 semaines, ils seront prêts à mettre en vitrine.

J’ai dit vitrine ? Ah, oui. Vous pourrez les acheter. À la pièce ou au poids, sur Nantes. Vous seriez prêt·es à en acheter ?

Lovely.

Ok, dear fellow #retroists...

I have a wonderful latex template for writing letters.

I'd like to replicate this with troff in the hopes of getting rid of the gigabyte toolchain behind texlive-full (which is excellent in itself, no bashing here).

Any experiences in that?

Please spread this.

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

Today’s mental health learning: depression destroys memory. plain-flavoured-english.tumblr

Related: I couldn’t post this without thinking “oh is this another one of those things you saw on the Internet and reworked your memories (or lack thereof, in this case 😆) to fit? more mental health cyberchrondia?” Glad I talked to my therapist about this recently; she set me straight on this front.

My brain is exploding after playing with github.com/nakst/flip. I've been looking for years for a simple pedagogical OS that boils things down to their essence and is yet easy to get running on any computer.

I've always had a question in my mind about how to bootstrap the OS. I knew about BIOS but vaguely considered it "cheating" when compared to the "purer" way of working within the processor's ISA. But I'm starting to realize that BIOS is _part of the ISA_.

Mu will soon drop Linux. Watch.

The (by @Hiro @Reptifur and I) is finished… and it works! I’m using it right now to type this message. :D
I’m very very happy with it. This is the perfect replacement for my old Typematrix that has nonfunctional rows and keys…

Today I worked a little on our (with @Hiro and @Reptifur) keyboard.
First time soldering an SMD component. Not the best job of course, but it wasn’t that hard! I just had to use a lot of flux!

The little socket is an 8-bit bus (or 5 lines + SPI bus) for external devices as well as initial programming. I tried programming it through that and it worked first try! :D

Next session will be soldering 70 diodes and 70 switches… x)

I wanted to know how the keyboard feels so I assembled it and put all the switches and keycaps (no electronics yet). I’m very happy with the result! It’s cute, the sound is good and it doesn’t bend *at all*.

I just received the PCBs for the low-profile mechanical keyboard project I’m doing with @Hiro and @Reptifur.
I’m super excited, everything went well! (this is my first PCB design and order)

The other keyboard on the photos is my Typematrix that I’m trying to replace with this project.
