I will be in the programming language from 6pm BST (1.5 hours from now), with Q&A afterwards (assuming mic works).

Managed to get a lightly modified working with my interpreter for of .

It's implemented as a bit of hack modifying the core template pad.html at present, but it should be possible to port it to a standalone Etherpad plugin - I was just fighting with npm and node and require() and things I don't understand at all so took an easier way out.

Firefox's "strict" content blocking mode breaks it. Not sure why.

Artist and programmer Ralf Baecker explores the potential of technology and its fundamental mechanisms. “I think technology is a multi dimensional-complex and through its ubiquity, it is deeply interwoven into our human existence and ecology.” He said in an interview with Laura Netz for CLOT Magazine.

Added EXR import to my calculator. Hacked an option into command line renderer to output raw histogram data to EXR. Ran a batch process to render and analyze some of the examples that come with Fractorium (in its Data/Bench directory).

Ported my renderer to . Even on the is way too slow to be useful, it's quicker to get the same visual quality by plotting a zillion points.

The attached has around 8k samples per pixel, taking around 1min/frame (1 hour total). 256k subframes for motion blur, each being a single path of 16k iterations. Only plain simple stuff without xaos control..

Short unimpressive demo of with in editor using as sound engine. It does whole program compilation when I hit Ctrl-S to save the file.

(16bit 48kHz audio so not really one for bytebeat purists perhaps)

I implemented Slow Mating for quadratic polynomials using the equations and hints in Chapter 5 of Wolf Jung's 2017 paper "The Thurston Algorithm for quadratic matings"

My code is 145 lines of quite-straightforward C, vs 2249 lines of C++ with various state hidden in mutating objects for the code accompanying the paper (which admittedly does a lot more, working from angles to compute the complex points and (pre)periods that are the input to my code). I'll do a blog post next week once I've tested more cases to make sure I haven't done any big mistakes.

There were a couple of subtleties, 1. needing to use cproj() to normalize infinity's representation and avoid NaNs; and 2. in one place, converting (a - b) / (a - c) to (1 - b/a) / (1 - c/a) so that it still works when a is infinite.

Attached images are the north period 4 island mated with the west period 4 island (blue background), and 2/5 bulb mated with 1/2 bulb (turquoise background).
