No default theme this week.
One of these is a pure nostalgia link for me.
This came together in about a day.
Some link cleanout going on here.
I managed to avoid a dominant theme this week. On purpose! I think it means a better summary.
Some cranky links, some fun links.
Unrelated game of the week: Hexagonal Pipes.
No mini-theme this week, just a mix.
I think I cover all the popular Lazy Reading topics: old computers, RPGs, graphs…
Your unrelated music link of the week: Better Living Through Synthesizers.
The “Weird Coding Experiment…” link is a good one.
- Mesopotamia, a nice online version of a museum exhibit. (via)
- 50 Years of Text Games bonus article: Amnesia.
- MNT Pocket Reform, the smaller version of something I’ve linked before.
- The least friendly keyboard ever, but certainly interesting.
- The Internet as a Public Good.
- GitHub Copilot and open source laundering. This applies to AI art too.
- A mystery with Fedora 36, fontconfig, and xterm (and urxvt). Linked cause I wondered out loud “why that change, in version 36?”
- Dangit, Git!? (via)
- A strategy to defeat AI chessbots.
- The Dwarf Fortress Development Plan. Some of this sounds more like writing an epic novel than a game, which is good! They have a dirt-simple Patreon, too, and graphics are on the way? All news to me.
- Plan 9 was almost a music disk, too. (via)
Your unrelated cartoon of the week: Mega.
This is a week of fun links.
Mini-theme of hardware this week.
This was done very early; I have been rigorous at cleaning up open tabs.
Your unrelated music for the week: KUTMAH – Original Production Beat Mix.
No mini-theme emerged this week.
Oddball multimedia is the mini-theme.
Still working on cleaning up RSS backlogs, so this was done early.
Your unrelated noise music of the week: GROAR by Juanjosé Rivas. (via)
I have a nice weird mix going on today.
Your unrelated video of the week: Frank & Beans – Hugo [official video]. I’ve linked to other shardcore stuff before, and thought I had previously linked to this video’s predecessor, but I can’t find it. It’s very good though also very Uncanny Valley. (also via)
