My last 100 twtxt entries, HTMLized.
To see all of it, go to my raw feed.
2021-02-22 18:28:52: an initial recipe for making fresh (pasta). pictures to come.
2021-02-19 21:20:49: making great progress getting interactive sound and video working on android. it's a setup I wish I had 5 years ago.
2021-02-16 09:36:07: feels good to be using tmux again more regularly. ansi-term in emacs is well, special.
2021-02-15 12:13:57: new monolith wiki page on FM: FM.
2021-02-10 22:01:18: added biramp to sndkit: biramp.
2021-02-09 14:07:24: a decentralized community (zet). individual zet feeds could be managed using something like git/git submodules, then built locally into self-contained SQLite files. zet items would be referenced by their zet nickname and UUID. #halfbakedideas
2021-02-09 10:35:57: put text in a box and center it: (boxit).
2021-02-09 10:02:52: links -g is an underappreciated jewel.
2021-02-09 10:02:33: trying to get myself to reach for (links) browser instead of firefox for locally testing my wiki. For the most part, it really doesn't need the heft of firefox. When links -g is used, it really really doesn't need firefox.
2021-02-08 20:09:01: to date, 138 pages in my wiki. wowee :)
2021-02-01 17:07:53: with (zet) and (zetdo), I find myself constantly needing to type out UUIDs. thing is, they aren't the easiest thing to type. might invent an intermediate typer-friendly intermediate UUID format that can then convert to the regular UUID format. #halfbaked
2021-01-28 18:06:05: don't get me wrong, I love the power of emacs. but it's a very complex piece of software, which is inherrently brittle. not a problem in the short term, but for some of my more long term tools it's a consideration.
2021-01-28 18:03:14: if I don't need org-agenda, that's one less dependency on emacs, which I have a love/hate relationship.
2021-01-28 18:02:31: if I could figure out a way to integrate scheduling tasks in (zetdo), and maybe clock in/out, I think I wouldn't really need org-agenda anymore.
2021-01-28 18:01:19: a supplementary component to (zetdo) called something like "due", which schedules items in the TODO and dynamically creates schedules similar to org-agenda. #halfbaked
2021-01-27 20:07:28: I really need to feel less guilty about not doing bullshit. I decided not to do bullshit work, and it ended up being a nice day.
2021-01-27 19:56:26: it really feels like I spend a few hours every day trying to will myself into doing what other people want. I suppose everyone has that to an extent. It's just really hard to do things that I know are stupid, when there are other more important things to do. Really winds me up.
2021-01-27 19:48:42: today was one of those "do what you want to do, not what you're supposed to do" kinds of days for me
2021-01-27 19:47:19: SQL(ite) and zettelkastens as a medium for non-linear story telling. #halfbaked
2021-01-27 10:57:06: a dynamically generated page for food recipes: (food)
2021-01-26 09:23:34: added recipe I use for brown sugar cinammon poptarts: (poptarts) #food #breakfast #baking
2021-01-24 11:06:02: Writing a "tweet" is low-friction, and the medium forces you to chunk out ideas into (mostly) self-contained thoughts.
2021-01-24 11:04:27: I'm finding the microblogging format to be really useful for working out ideas.
2021-01-19 17:01:42: the stern-brocot tree https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stern%E2%80%93Brocot_tree.
2021-01-19 17:00:53: user-defined order in SQL https://begriffs.com/posts/2018-03-20-user-defined-order.html #sql #links maybe something that can be adapted to (sqlite)?
2021-01-19 16:56:35: cistercian numerals https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cistercian_numerals #links #notation
2021-01-12 14:58:04: rounded rectangle recipe in #cairo https://www.cairographics.org/samples/rounded_rectangle/ #links #vector #graphics
2021-01-09 13:17:40: Just copied over more samples today from my sample collection from one drive to another. Things are in more than one place for the first time in a long time, maybe ever in some cases? Feels nice.
2021-01-03 13:10:40: lagrange is a gui desktop space for browsing geminispace. it builds and runs on alpine linux! https://gmi.skyjake.fi/lagrange/ #links
2020-12-31 11:30:34: new breathing card today! bc12.tizhaimy. check it out at (breathing_cards).
2020-12-30 16:28:37: lots of links added to overview page on monolith wiki: overview.
2020-12-26 09:40:02: monolith now has 38 unique literate programs. their woven representations can be found at my website /proj/monolith/program. #monolith
2020-12-26 09:35:15: the (zet) I have written for my wiki is probably going to end up replacing what I've been using twtxt for these past few months. this means less spam here. you're welcome.
2020-12-20 16:37:49: I tried removing a flag from curl, and now tweets are downloading to the cache folder now. I think. will have to wait for folks to say stuff.
2020-12-20 16:32:56: that's it. I'm sticking to this txtnish client.
2020-12-20 15:56:45: that's it. I'm finding another twtxt client.
2020-12-20 15:47:44: Atelophobia by @<hecanjog https://hecanjog.com/twtxt.txt> https://hecanjog.bandcamp.com/album/atelophobia #links #bandcamp
2020-12-20 13:52:49: code drunk. refactor sober.
2020-12-18 11:07:51: slowly amassing a collection of (metapages) on this wiki.
2020-12-17 17:57:17: I've already implemented like 4 new features today just out of necessity with my (sample_curation) project.
2020-12-17 15:12:31: to start my sample (zettelkasten), I imported some waveform collections I had nearby: AKWF, Architecture Waveforms 2010, and WaveEdit #samples #curation #zet
2020-12-17 08:28:24: I still can't get over how I can download megabytes of information instantly these days. I am a child of dial-up.
2020-12-17 08:13:46: uh-oh, my masto instance is hanging.
2020-12-12 20:23:16: okay. txtnish is now officially sketchy. sometimes feeds don't update, even if I run txtnish update, and this means missing replies. I gotta find something else if I'm going to make this more than a write-only experience.
2020-12-12 20:18:52: there's a zet growing in my wiki now. #updates
2020-12-11 21:15:19: with the addition of crate in weewiki, I finally found an opportunity to add some words to the (sqlar) page #updates
2020-12-09 17:28:44: my chai recipe I made in 2018: (chai) #tea #food #recipe
2020-12-07 19:57:23: with some scripting, I could probably use my upcoming (weewiki) (zettelkasten) as a drop-in replacement for (twtxt), and then generate the twtxt file. however, I think I am going to keep them separate for the time being. let them both grow to serve different purposes.
2020-12-07 19:54:16: initial crate words imported in to weewiki source repo. no code yet, but it's pretty clear to me what needs to happen next in order to make an MVP. #updates
2020-12-05 13:32:49: @<hecanjog https://hecanjog.com/twtxt.txt> has a twtxt feed yay
2020-12-05 13:28:17: import functionality now works in the (weewiki) zet #updates
2020-12-05 11:53:26: some good initial progress with the (weewiki) zettelkasten. messages can be made and tied to previous messages by providing partial UUIDs (that then get automatically expanded). basic export also works. #updates
2020-12-04 20:18:45: I'm really sad to have (temporarily) taken my monome grid + arc off my desk, but the empty space on my table makes me think better. Hopefully, I'll be able to appreciate them more when they come back. #updates
2020-12-04 10:39:35: created an initial wiki page about my (loom). #updates
2020-12-02 10:47:46: smoothstep is a stateless smoother function commonly used in computer graphics. could be interesting in the audio domain as well (parameter smoothing, phase warping/distortion synthesis, etc): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoothstep #links #halfbaked
2020-12-02 10:15:55: notation as a tool of thought https://www.jsoftware.com/papers/tot.htm #links
2020-12-02 10:14:05: I had this notion yesterday of ignoring whitespace completely in (txtvm). this could allow for some ascii-art patterns in the output (similar to what some IOCC entries do). #halfbaked
2020-12-02 10:11:45: my room is now a bit cleaner, much more empty. more space to think and concentrate hopefully. #updates
2020-11-24 10:54:44: on small games: https://lorenzo.itch.io/on-small-games #links
2020-11-24 10:52:56: thinking of computer interfaces as being hypertypewriters #halfbakedideas
2020-11-20 10:26:02: tool-mind vs toy-mind #halfbakedideas
2020-11-17 16:11:05: phsclk is an algorithm that divides an incoming phasor signal into an arbitrary number of ticks that are equally spaced. phsclk #sndkit #updates
2020-11-17 15:33:22: tools encourage creation. toys encourage discovery. sometimes these overlap. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-17 09:23:12: gyo is an imaginary 4-bit computer https://git.sr.ht/~rabbits/gyo #links
2020-11-16 19:41:25: plans for weewiki: a zettelkasten-like interface, a microblogging platform inspired by (twtxt), and some utilities for managing collections of SQLar archives. #updates #halfbakedideas
2020-11-16 10:26:23: finally finished all the initial ugen documentation. everything now has a sentence or two. the generated page can be accessed from the ugen wiki page /proj/monolith/wiki/ugens #updates #monolith
2020-11-13 09:38:00: new sndkit algorithm: expmap creates an exponential curve from a linear ramp. #sndkit #updates
2020-11-07 19:07:00: code for the codex https://git.sr.ht/~pbatch/codex #codex #updates
2020-11-07 19:05:38: IA IA PAFATHUDAYYUGO! THE TRANSMISSION HAS BEGUN. #updates #codex
2020-11-04 15:07:42: I gotta put hatching patterns in (btprnt). I just gotta. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-04 15:07:02: hatching is a monochrome system traditionally used in woodcuts and engravings to denote tinctures (colors) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatching_(heraldry) #1bit #links
2020-11-04 11:05:47: the concept of literally typed languages. as in, languages designed to be satisfying to type. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-03 17:23:30: a crossfade loop delay line. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-02 10:46:59: added an initial (bitwrite) page #updates
2020-11-02 10:15:51: I've recently been reading up on zettelkastens again, since it is very closely related to the ethos of a personal wiki system like (weewiki). The thing that interests me is the emergent patterns that come from linking things to things. Which is exactly the sort of solution I'm looking for (sample_curation). #halfbakedideas
2020-11-02 10:09:43: not to mention there's lots of interesting transformations one can apply to the linear ramp of a phasor signal. movable midpoint as seen in phase distortion synthesis and (phasewarp). exponential and bezier mappings. Not to mention all the trig functions and waveshaping synthesis techniques. All these things would warp tempo in interesting periodic ways. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-02 10:04:37: it's also easy to use scaling and wrap operations to transform a phasor signal into smaller/larger phasor signals, allowing for interesting rhythmic microcosms that stay in sync #halfbakedideas
2020-11-02 10:02:05: I'm hoping to build a phasor-to-clock signal generator, which divides up a phasor into an arbitrary number of ticks. Using a global phasor as a global clock would allow for interesting polyrhythms, as well more flexible precision in sequencers. It's also closer to how human-based conducting works. #halfbakedideas
2020-10-31 12:01:42: lil (little interpretted language) is a tiny scripting language with implementations in C and Pascal. Apparently, the author maintains it in a private (fossil) repo, which is pretty neat: http://runtimeterror.com/tech/lil/?ref=hvper.com #links
2020-10-25 17:55:14: sitelen sitelen is a style of non-linear writing that appears as hieroglyphic blocks, and can be used with toki pona https://jonathangabel.com/toki-pona/ #links #tokipona
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
2020-10-15 17:42:59: sitelen telo v1.01, a japanese logographic script for toki pona. might want to try to make a #1bit version of this for (btprnt) https://www.reddit.com/r/tokipona/comments/jax1x2/sitelen_telo_v101_a_japaneseinspired_logographic/ #links #tokipona
2020-10-14 17:36:54: added a few notes on woven program output on the (monolith) wiki page #updates
