Be ready for the latent craziness in some of the links for this Lazy Reading episode.
- Unix Meets Prime Numbers.
- The Itanium processor, part 1: Warming up.
- Google INTERCAL Style Guide. (via)
- Before Spelunky and FTL, There Was Only ASCII. “Procedural Death Labyrinths” sounds fun. (via)
- How Pinterest simplified, compartmentalised and scattered the web.
- “actually a hat“.
- GMO biology transformed by “Inventor of Email”. There’s a reason that last part is in quotes.
- What’s Wrong With the Internet and How We Can Fix It: Interview With Internet Pioneer John Day. A 6-month interview. (via)
- Running TSS/8 on the DEC PiDP-8/i and SIMH. It’s not just a software simulation; it’s a Raspberry Pi inside a PDP-8 shell. The front panel actually works. (thanks, Remy van Elst!)
Your off-topic movie link of the week: The Fabulous World of Jules Verne. (via an internet cult.) Originally titled Invention For Destruction and released by a Czech director, then subtitled to English. Looks like a strange mix of steampunk content and Monty Python-style animation. That may seem only mildly interesting until you notice it was filmed in 1958.
