L'après grève de la faim des personnes - une lettre à leur voisins.
"8 bonnes raisons
de soutenir
la régularisation
1. Régulariser, c’est lutter contre le travail au noir et la fraude sociale.
2. Régulariser les travailleurs et travailleuses répondrait au problème de pénurie de main-d’œuvre.
3. Cela rapporterait par ailleurs jusqu’à 65 millions d’euros nets par mois dans les caisses de la sécurité sociale.
4. Les expulsions et la détention
en centre fermé coûtent très cher à l’État.
5. Régulariser est la condition sine qua non au respect des droits fondamentaux de toutes les personnes vivant en Belgique.
6. Régulariser, c’est lutter contre l’exclusion sociale, le racisme et la montée de l’extrême droite.
7. La Belgique a déjà mené des campagnes de régularisation sans que cela n’engendre d’«appel d’air». Cette crainte est donc injustifiée.
8. Régulariser, c’est rendre leur dignité aux femmes, hommes et enfants qui ont déjà tout perdu."

I set up my A500+ again, using ATI TV Wonder video capture card in a Pentium 4 desktop, connected to a VGA monitor.

I found the floppy disk with my utils (written in Blitz Basic 2) for sending/receiving files via MIDI SysEx. recompiled the receiver with a larger buffer size so I could send LhA.run downloaded from aminet (buffer needs to be at least 2N+3 bytes for an N byte file). made a backup as the disk had some read/write errors.

I needed to write 2 small utils in C on the Linux side to do the what the attachched did on the Amiga side, but I made them work as stdio filters - the actual transfer is done with the amidi tool.

Then connecting MIDI: the Amiga external ProMIDI interface out/in to my Linux external UA-25 interface in/out (got them plugged correctly on first try).

Transferred lha.run to Amiga, ran it to decompress it, archived my source code to a new lha archive, transferred them to Linux.

Set up FS-UAE on my laptop, installed Workbench2.0_GB.adf onto a virtual hard drive, rebooted, installed Blitz Basic 2 from CD ISO (downloaded from archive.org), installed lha.run amigae33a.lha and ec33a.lha from aminet, so that I can do some develoment emulated, with a keyboard that works properly (A500+'s E key is broken, and 2 and S are a bit dodgy).

@suroh not echo yet, but gonna post some samples soon!

@rra it did! I had very little faith.. but seems like it's a good technique after all.

Session 8 progress

Paint lettering thingie 6/3 (took more layers than planned, still no idea if this is going to work) + added a second SID chip :nes_fire:

PhD thesis, PhD life, facing your demons 

Took me 5 years to properly publish my PhD thesis and come to terms with what this document symbolizes to me: an interminable period of stress, loneliness and resentment. Anywho, the PDF is now on ResearchGate, with DOI and all: researchgate.net/publication/3

Even though it is nicer to access it from p-dpa.net/extending-horizons/ :unwanted_ok:

Just came across this really cool art residency:

2022 Experimental Weaving Residency Call for Entries ($10k!)

https://unstable.design/experimental-weaving-residency/

Pretty proud of Other Worlds's new issue. Here, French designer Anaëlle Beignon tackles the notion of obsolescence, showing how it is not an "essential" feature of a device, but a relational quality involving societal and technical expectations. buttondown.email/otherworlds/a

@amatecha @theruran Aaaah I see. Indeed that helps a lot :) I think I'll just bite the bullet to get a second one for the Sammich to be complete, and will stick with that for now. Was already quite impressed with only one chip while going through the default presets.

@amatecha @theruran Oh yes the MB-6582 looks fanstastic! Sourcing 8 SID chips seems quite tricky though (or expensive).

session 6 progress

All the ICs in place, flashed the latest MIDIbox SID Synth V2 firmware and some standard presets. I only have one SID chip to test for now, but everything seems to work.

@automatist
There is indeed a mode/engine that gives you an XOX style sequencer. But I think the LEDs are mostly used as vue-meter bling for the 6 oscillators (3 per SID chip). We shall see soon enough :)

It's this time of the year...
