animascii (2018-03-16 06:22:00)

I finally published animascii, a textfile-based ascii animator.

Writing it was a nice experience, making me acquainted with some lesser-known parts of cabal workflow.

Enjoy, feedback and bug reports welcome!

Can I read, Daddy? (2018-01-07 08:42:00)

The resolution for 2018 is to read more good books. But why start with War and Peace, when you can have a gentler foray into becoming a bibliophile?

Short good books.

Minor mode (2017-12-06 07:10:00)

From linux-audio-users, a reinterpretation (and orchestration) of the German Christmax carol “Oh Tannenbaum” in minor, by Jeanette C.

+: Stonetelling, Why I hate LaTeX, New old thing.

Inconsistent net is no fun, have a link dump:

Busy Bumblebee reloaded (2017-07-26 20:21:00)

FVP, with a very inky ink and on quite slick pages.

Bigger version of the mess.

A Young Man Goes to a Dance / Are these giant preistoric trees? / A Braille & ASCII map renderer.

Robot 1 in the Ship of Doom (2017-07-10 08:42:00)

Robot 1 in the Ship of Doom, a short and sweet ZX Spectrum game by Mat Recardo (with by Sergey Tosov).

Play it with your favourite Speccy emulator. Controls: ZXP. You have 5 minutes to save Robot 1!

Earthenware that looks like Jar-Jar Binks.

Party like it's 1890 (2017-07-01 08:21:00)

Still a thing, apparently.

Easter egg puzzle (so simple, so deceptive, I failed).

Moving by Night, by Misja van Laatum.

10$ revolution.

Why do all records sound the same / Studio tour (with braille display) / The traveler.

Aeolus (2017-05-19 07:35:00)

Last weak I discovered a terrific Linux/OSX organ emulator, Aeolus. In the words of the author, Fons Adriaensen, the aim is “to arrive at a synthesised (i.e. not sampled) pipe organ sound that should be good enough to make an organist enjoy playing it.”

I can vouch for both the “good enough” and “enjoy playing it” parts. I tested the synthesis playing a small choralprelude by Walther on a single midi keyboard (errors mine):

Vivaldi (2017-05-04 20:51:00)

The Four Seasons, recomposed by Max Richter (Max Richter has disassembled them and fashioned a new composition from the deconstructed pieces. Using post-minimalist procedures to extract fertile fragments and reshape the materials into new music.).

Super Kaiju Dunk City, if you love guitar-hero-likes.

The history of esculent fish.

Bigger version.

Pity I didn’t note down the words from the ephigraph on the right, but it is a funerary inscription of someone named Car…: apparently very famous in his time, apparently dead in 536 A.D..

Always nice to visit something fascinating nearby you were not aware of.

Haskell Day Again (2017-02-25 20:00:01)

Haskell day, exhausted & happy as only an Haskell day could get me. Thanks to Mikamai and LinkMe for hosting this!

Bonus, I snatched some dark green ink.
