voidSTAR game concept

spoilers

In “voidSTAR,” you play as Nova Sterling, the pilot of the spacecraft Endeavour, on a routine cargo mission from Earth to a distant planet near the star 61 Cygni. However, after an unexpected encounter with a wormhole created by the mysterious v…

Here is an exercise to find your passion in life. Imagine you have an infinite amount of money; what would you do? Personally, I would travel and build a Metaverse from hotel rooms.

Is ‘fart’ short for ‘fine art’? Asking for a friend.

Why do good ideas come in the shower, and as soon as you leave the shower, they all disappear?

There is a Russian saying: ‘7 times Ctrl-C, one time Ctrl-V’

TIL; the father of Moore’s Law, Gordon Moore, is the co-founder and emeritus chairman of Intel Corporation. 🤯

Good read. I am fully in agreement that the code review culture has a huge problem, and we need to address it somehow. I don’t think pair programming and TDD are going to be the sole solution to the problem; I think we need some hea…

It is almost 2024. Patiently waiting for:

import std;
auto main() -> int { std::println("Hello, World!"); }

[c++23]

Do you remember doing auto i = 0U to be nice to the C++ compiler? Now you can do auto i = 0Z to be even nicer. [C++23].

Every time I need to Google; why not the old familiar M_PI?

#include <numbers>

std::numbers::pi

I am thinking about what game to implement next as a practice using RICS-V VM. I was thinking of Space Invaders in 3D, but it currently does not feel appealing; maybe zombies? A lot of zombies instead of aliens?


🌸 Sun, Dec 24, 2023 🌸

I learned the hard way that exceptions are expensive. I was doing a bunch of tests with the RISC-V VM and gave it a budget of 60K instructions/sec. Then I started testing exceptions, and nothing was happening. It looked like it is taking a lot of time to unwind the stack.

One thing that has bothered me lately: what happened with DEC computers? The common story is that the IBM PC had an open architecture. But things don’t match. DEC computers were not as closed as it was claimed, and IBM PC computers were not as open as it was claimed. Maybe price?…

I want to find an empty box from PS5 and troll all couples in the mall. Not that I have a PS5, but let the boys think about what they’re losing being in relationships.

Cookie Law feels like a mistake. Can we reiterate on it or potentially cancel it? Also, Proposition 65 and Daylight Saving Time, please.

I prefer gradients and shadows on buttons - fake 3D; but I am okay if you are a flat designer 😜

I am going to say, ‘I really like Honeymoon Avenue by Ariana Grande.’ So good.

Do I understand the situation correctly? Someone discovered that if you spam-click the like button, Twitter will sometimes double-count likes; so everyone started trying to test it and crashed Twitter?

Did Twitter just crash?

Do you remember thinking why I needed to learn that mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell? And you thought it was a waste of tax money; I think we didn’t learn enough because now we have all these anti-vaxxers and flat earthers. You would think it’s harmless, but it’s causin…

I switched from llama 2 to vicuna for my offline LLM task. I did not run any objective benchmarks, but subjectively it feels better.

I really like that ChatGPT suggests ‘Seek Professional Support.’ I am the professional support.

Oh, my goodness! It takes forever to install the Christmas Tesla update 2023.44.30.2. I am only at 60%.
