OSX dev help 

Can someone help out a grumpy Makefile programmer?

I have this GLFW program I built on the command line using Makefiles, and I want to wrap it into one of those fancy .app launchers so that people don't have to go into the command line to launch it.

Is there a way to create one without porting the project to XCode or something like CMake?

It's just a prototype for internal use, so it doesn't have to be robust or anything.

Folks! I'm looking to expand my musical vocabulary before my brain finishes developing because I read (and probably put too much stock in) a couple studies about how we learn to enjoy music!

So, what are your favorite albums/artists who are good exemplars of a given genre?

@neauoire computers give you just enough to keep you coming back for more.

I've been meaning to check these out at some point. I'm sure I could find ways to integrate them into my software ecosystem.

I sometimes feel like the least helpful Linux Audio user because I write all my software. "Oh? You need a plugin that does X? Well, here's some C code that does X. If you happen to find some LV2 sample code you could probably hack it into a plugin."

Film idea: a character study about Orpheus post-Eurydice in a contemporary setting.

All of the cold. None of the snow. Blech.

A super-talented artist by the name of Stéphane Richard (known previously as Wootha) dropped a bunch of their work into the public domain.

How much?

I'm happy to announce that #Retro #Forth 2021.1 is now complete. It's available at forthworks.com/retro

A full changelog is included in the source, but a summary:

- conditionals now treat non-zero as true
- the full image is smaller
- several obscure bugs were fixed
- code and test block delimiters in Unu now user definable
- refactored the assembler
- refactored & expanded python implementation of Nga
- added a full python implementation of the build tools
- added a nim implementation of Nga

@mrufrufin ah yes, the circular dependency of needing glasses to find glasses. I've always called this the "Velma Dilemma".

@grainloom you could almost say you were... disenchanted by the writers?

No, don't worry, I can show myself out.

@jonbro @hecanjog it seems every commercial DAW is virtually identical these days. Thinking out of the box keeps getting easier.

@jonbro @hecanjog Great way to put it. It absolutely is a problem centered around interface, and letting go of our collective preconceived notions of what musical input is supposed to be on a computer.

@nff just finished! really good ep. I read ahead for this season, and am really enjoying seeing how things unfold onscreen.

Multiple ways to say "Inaros" this season apparently.

The FOSS community should gather together all the different public domain universes(Lovecraft, Robin Hood, Dracula, all the pulp/noir characters, etc) and build some sort of dope expanded franchise/universe of free & open source games/movies/books/TV/other cool stuff.

Come on, you know you want this to happen :D

@yaxu thanks. And no problem. Happy I didn't offend at the end.

@yaxu In this context, I was specifically thinking of renaissance sacred choral music, and the way Palestrina could just take 4 independent voices, weave them together, and fill up a big space. I think there's elegance and beauty to that. I'd love to be able to make computer music in a similar way someday.

@yaxu was meant to be a stab at implicit keyboard (as in piano) biases I see in electronic music, and a suggestion for an alternative framework of thinking (the human voice).
