Play Kerfuffle by KKairos!

To play it you need DosBox and the ZZT engine. Move the .zzt into the engine folder, select a world with W and pick KRFFFL-C). The game is worth the setup pain, I promise!

Other: Dokmelody, (eo) Mazi en Gondolando.

read-list (2019-01-01 08:42:00)

Last year I decided to get back into reading more (I even compiled a handy list to help me in the selection process).

I read 60+ books in 2018: 53 from the public library, a handful of ebooks (I sold my ebook reader after realising paper is more comfortable to my eyes – and gets me in the mood to read more) and a few paperbacks bought in shopping sprees.

So here is a selection of the ones I liked most, if you want to start your 2019 with a similar goal:

Can you paint better than Hockney? (2018-12-14 20:51:00)

"I did it on an iPad."

A fascinating introuction to a lesser known instrument, the European reed organ and its sounds.

“When I was a child, I used to ask for stories to eat”: Nothing.

Goodbye Mnemosyne (2018-12-07 07:44:00)

After almost ten years, the time has finally come to say “goodbye” to Mnemosyne. Mnemosyne is an amazing spaced-repetition software (with simply the best user experience of them all), but I simply find myself more and more weary of screen-time the older I get.

I will replace it with a pen and paper method: one of A Simple Vocabulary Memorization Method and the Gold Book method.

Transferring ~9500 cards will be quite a task, but I am sure it will be worth it.

org-mode mode (2018-10-30 20:21:00)

Happy to announce that lentil now supports Emacs org-mode (.org) syntax. Many thanks to Damien Couroussé for the patch!

Just played: Winter Storm Draco.

Bel fiore dança (2018-10-28 07:35:00)

Here is a small thing I transcribed and tried to play today (synth: aeolus).

If you want to play it yourself, grab the score (abc/pdf).

Jean Giraud's illustrations for the Divine Comedy.

cpp (2018-08-11 07:35:00)

I wrote some haskell hack.

Van Gogh pen & watercolor sketches.

Fun with FRP (2018-07-24 08:38:00)

I wrote this using reflex-dom, to check the capabilities of Haskell for the web. Some of it is still painful (long build times, no way to use repl/ghicd, bloated exes, extremely scant documentation), while writing FRP is alluring.

Joachim Breitner wrote on the matter and provides some relief.

Music keyboard (2018-07-06 08:18:00)

I wrote an article on travel friendly music keyboards.

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!
