This just made my wkend! I'm isolating with Covid but with these cheapo adapters I can do a long-anticipated laptop to laptop lofi recording/resampling project! Gonna feed drum sounds out of a tracker, through some guitar pedals and back into Reaper

My sibling graciously accepted my assertion that the solar bin, accepting gifts from passersby at the threshold of the supermarket carpark, was effectively a guardian deity

My first purchase from Marrowbone Books second hand bookshop: *Bluebeard's Egg* - Margaret Atwood. Lovely shop, I'll be back.

Trying to get a hello world in some more dialects. I couldn't link up SDL2 to GNU Guile after about an hour of trying. Fennel + Love2d + Lua, however, worked out of the box.

Mushrooms! I spotted seven species while rambling in Wicklow yesterday.

Unbelievably summery conditions near Knockree, Wicklow this morning. At least the wildlife was enjoying it, I saw a stag, many butterflies, and so many mushrooms (which I'll post tomorrow).[photo of a track through ferns and gorse]

Here's some confusing in CentOS 7 . In a panel of power-saving options, we see "Wi-Fi: turn off Wi-Fi to save power". I interpreted this as a feature that drops connectivity when the computer is inactive, and clicked to turn it off.

We really go for health-and-safety in Ireland, compared to what I've seen of the UK and France anyway. Usually it's millions of traffic cones but tonight I spotted this traffic light guarding a totally silent and almost completely unobstructed cul de sac

I've always liked moirê and related phenomena. Here's a repeating pattern that popped out of some experiments with scaling an 8x8 1-bit tile

Saturday plans!

Playing with C and Win32... this is not what I was trying to do but it's pretty

An actual sand sculptor (in Dublin Castle)... this reminded me of the fraudulent sand sculptor who has plied his trade for many years on Grafton Street in Dublin, getting coins off tourists as he polishes up his sculpture of a dog... which he makes every morning from a plastic mould!

I gotta share this bit of promoting Dublin's hippest nightspot The Sugar Club, simply because they absolutely nailed the choice of that the record-collector-ghost figure is holding: that's Herbie Hancock's Headhunters (1973), the album that got me into
jazz as a teenager
