Disturbing art installation concept 

"Illium" was another name for the city of Troy

"-ad" is a suffix that can be used to mean "the story of"

Therefore "The Illiad" is properly translated as; drumroll please...

Troy Story

In spoken English, the phrase "I never said you drank my tea" can have seven different implied meanings, depending on which word you place emphasis on. 🍵

Bonding with my new minirig mini. After many many months of studio headphones, it is refreshing to hear a sound in space.

Ep 1 started pretty strong. Lots of interesting fringe theories with some evidence, with the ET narrative kind of smashed in there.

Pretty sure ep 2 called king tut an alien, so there was that.

Ep 3 was total trash. So many uneducated people starting sentences with things like "I feel" or "I personally believe". Mind boggling to think multiple people had to sign off on this.

Starting Ep 4. More crazy old white people I am sure.

Oh my goodness. Ancient Aliens. This show. Gets more unhinged with each episode. Wow. Aliens did everything. Or... did they?

Original Amiga deluxe paint source code was on github for less that 24 hours before it got deleted. Didn't have time to clone it. Anyone got any mirrors?

All my friends text me in emoticons now. Makes me feel old and behind the times.

Has anybody here used twtxt before? Looks interesting.

yo syncthing is pretty dope. got it up and running with orgzly in minutes.

My wallet thanks me for not getting into eurorack.

The sound that homer simpson makes when he drools is known as a "voiced epiglottal trill" in the international phonetic alphabet. Pretty sure.

Well, my comandline Android dev-setup was a fight to get up and running on Alpine linux. Mainly this is due to the sdk-tools being incompatible with musl libc.

I ended up building a chroot jail around Arch linux. I'm disappointed in wasting 15 gigs of space on this. On the other hand, this means I can bring my 1.1 pound linux laptop around instead of my 5.5 pound mac laptop.

me: accidentally types a website wrong into the search bar

google chrome, for the rest of my life: you want to go to netfliz? you like netfliz you dipshit? you really sure you don't want to go to netfliz.com today?

Just got me an Odroidgo yesterday. Made me realize that there has never been a better time for playing + developing 8-bit games:

- A massive catalogue of ROMs to play + nintendo looking the other way
- Several competing retro gaming handhelds (Bittboy, Odroid-go, LDK gamer, etc)
- Even more ROM emulators to choose from
- Well documented specs on gameboy hardware + software
- An active homebrew community for these older platforms
- New open-source hackable consoles like the Arduboy
- Dev tools like GBDK that can actually run on modern hardware

Hell of a hole to fall into these past few days. Hope I didn't hit my head too hard ;)
