2020-10-21 19:12:44: the fe language by rxi would make for a great frontend for generating txtvm code maybe #halfbakedideas

2020-10-16 14:22:04: been adopting a document-as-you go approach to the (monolith) wiki. as I dogfood my software to make pieces an etudes like (breathing_cards), I write about it in a wiki stub. #workflow #documentation

2020-10-09 17:27:55: a 1-bit delay line? basically could be used to store audio-rate impulses, clocks, and triggers. the buffer would be a bitbuffer, so it would be a very memory-efficient. the notion of feedback some kind of feedback could be compelling too... #halfbakedideas #1bit

2020-10-09 16:04:55: es is an extensible shell derived from Plan9's rc. It's also placed in the #publicdomain https://github.com/wryun/es-shell #links #plan9 #github

2020-10-09 14:20:57: saw this great writeup once on how somebody visualized data by drawing faces with them, and letting our brain's natural face feature-extraction algorithms interpret the data. Kinda want to try to do that with some of these samples and waveforms I'm curating. #halfbakedideas

2020-10-09 13:30:32: This morning I had this really weird notion of building a generative podcast complete with musical interludes and asemic speech using a speech synthesizer. It'd be interesting to have "interviews" with two distinct vocal characters. #halfbakedideas

2020-10-09 13:24:21: added bezier to (sndkit) today. coupled with oscf, it is capable of making some really weird wet FM-y sounds. Me like! #updates #sndkit

2020-10-08 11:09:59: @<eli_oat https://txt.eli.li/twtxt/twtxt.txt> happy to be an enabler :) I keep finding new uses for Janet as well! It has proven to be a remarkable extension language for (weewiki).

2020-10-08 11:04:33: Hey @<prologic https://twtxt.net/user/prologic/twtxt.txt>! still figuring out how to reply to people. I'm based in the New England in the US. What about you?

2020-10-01 14:47:07: suddenly I have an urge to build a concatenative macro language to go along with this (txtvm) project of mine. Together, they maybe could build a more thoughtful (runt)? #halfbakedideas

2020-10-01 14:41:59: just made a (links) page for myself to keep track of interesting things I find. Anything with the hashtag #links gets placed there automatically.

2020-09-28 17:03:55: the c64 method would be an even cheaper video storage mechanism, but you wouldn't get constant 2-bit color.

2020-09-28 16:05:57: so, having the etudes be ~20mb/minute for sound AND video ain't too bad, and that's before doing any sort of compression. My etudes are almost always 80-120 seconds long, so the total size of a lossless uncompressed etude would be ~40mb, consistently. #halfbakedideas

2020-09-28 16:03:05: sound for #breathingcard etudes in 44.1 kHz mono 32-bit floating point sound. that's about ~10mb a minute raw uncompressed audio. #halfbakedideas

2020-09-28 16:01:03: my #breathingcard etudes are 128x64 resolution videos with 4x zoom, that normally use no more than 4 colors (2-bits) using a 2-bit color storage format, that's ~7mb a minute for raw uncompressed 60 fps video. not bad. #halfbakedideas

2020-09-28 15:45:01: I've been thinking about storing the output of some of my audio-visual etudes in a more portable lossless 4-bit indexed color format, rather than rely on x264 directly. #halfbakedideas #etudes #breathingcards #longterm

2020-09-27 13:12:37: well, I missed my one-year #twtxt anniversary by a few days. yay?

2020-09-23 11:06:03: also hoping to bring bits of #sndkit into #9front and #neindaw. maybe build a whole professional-quality music production platform around plan9 concepts instead of the tired cliche of emulating analog workflows? #halfbakedideas

2020-09-23 11:02:22: this morning I planned lots of #halfbakedideas for #sndkit in the near-distant future: a ROMpler with crossfading capabilities and optional input, and vowel formant filter, paired with a physical model of the glottis.

2020-09-23 10:58:02: (caisaichoh)

2020-09-16 10:14:53: huh. it seems that dumping + gzipping a SQLite database can sometimes have better compression than gzipping the SQLite database directly. cool. #sqlite

2020-08-30 14:46:13: all files (monolith) written using (worgle) have now been automatically HTMLized via (weewiki). the top-level browser can be found here.

2020-08-24 11:15:23: well, it seems like I managed to automatically weave all the (literate_programming) parts into a (weewiki)! It's not all that helpful yet though, due to the fact that pages have autogenerated names like 'wm0002'. A table of contents comes next...
