queer anarchism and poltards

In say 1950’s in some dark alley of some major city, there was a homeless drunk, an abused teenager who ran away from home, a drag queen on their way to a gay bar, a socially acceptable but closeted socialite like say turing or wilde. All with their own shit, but nonetheless some how found their way to the same dark alley. These lives will ask many questions you wont; so where will be the answers?

new tools

So I’ve recently been working on a autotiler https://github.com/crazymonkyyy/lazyautotile In order to document the controls I wanted a way to make such things… so I made that too. https://github.com/crazymonkyyy/lazyinfographic (be sure you read that code before use so you don’t get started expecting features that aren’t there, like saving) So todo list for autotiler: handling probabilistic tiles finalising list of keys autotiler and rule editor use(to make infographics) scrolling different update modes?

myth of unimportant syntax

Syntax matters. “If a language is turing complete MATH says you can do anything in it; your DISAGREEING WITH MATH”. Yes. Yes I am, I will proudly disagree with math when I god damn please. I a mere mortal am not up in the clouds of platonic mathematical ideals, I can write code in c that I cant in brainfuck. I’m also lazy, if something is annoying it also won’t be done.

twitter buyout: future uncertain

Today(well yesterday its 3 am) the news was twitter been bought, the right believes there’s a savior, leftists are crying, trump isn’t joining for an unknown reason, and the naysayers are saying “well technically there’s still some paper work to sign”. BUT… the share price is 49$ when the buyout is 55$; which gives me pause, and the more I think about it the less coherent the story is. This isn’t my market, I don’t know the politics around hostile takeovers, their success rates, or have a frame work for estimating how they will go.

tools wanted function parameters as types

There is a cute but ultimately fragile pattern void F(int i=1,float f=4.20){} Parameters!F Fpara=ParameterDefaults!F; F(Fpara); Your probably thinking “oh sweet I could make nice api’s with this”. But… no. If you make the types ref, you cant supply defaults. you’ll get a compile error. void F(ref int i=1,float f=4.20){} // Error: cannot modify constant 1 If you try to use an voldemort type as a parameter, the type stops the std function from compiling

egg drop omelette

In a medium fry pan, add a splash of water, soy sauce, and vinegar, to mostly coat the bottom of the pan; season with pepper and cayenne. Add a pat of butter. When the broth is a rolling boil, crack in 4 eggs. Consider seasoning the egg yellows. Lower heat to mid-high and occasionally poke holes thru the inner egg whites; to help them cook. When egg whites are 90% set, add cheese and attempt(but fail) to fold.

bodgetastic macros

I wanted macros. So like many times before I started mushing tools together lazily with the fuzziest idea of a big picture, and this time was so… easy comparably, and I can imagine several easy modifications. So here’s a sign post, if you want macros of some sort consider these tools and the syntax: xte and xautomation yay xautomation xte 'str hello' xte is from the collection of tools called xautomation, with this syntax with type out “hello”

what Im doing

My todo list is a mess, but whatever. I’m hoping to get my shooter game done, which like every project I grew much larger than originally planned and progress is painfully slow. I’ve been applying for jobs for months using the fanciest resume I am capable of, but yet it seems to be “disagreeable people need not apply”; if you are unwilling to make medical decisions to appease a political situation HALF of the programming jobs just declare they won’t accept you, the number was probably was 90% at some point and who knows how many still ask at the end of an interview and will treat it as a red flag.

Mechanisms of Darkness

What defines a dark age; what would a dark age look like post-industrialization? When I say the future doesn’t seem bright and label that a dark age, am I meaning a collapse of technology into medieval living standards, or maybe I’m just complaining about technology making me unhappy? This is to try to be specific about the types of problems I see in dark futures, that I feel I realistic, and suggest something has gone terribly wrong.

Mutable Templates

So a while ago I went ahead a did the impossible, irresponsible, and full initialization of my incorrigible insanity and made an appendable alias sequence in d. This is not supposed to be possible. While templates are Turing complete, it is via the church lambda calculous or function style of patterns and not Turing mutability; mutability just doesn’t exist, yet I made a data structure. This blog is to document the hacks I used and to stroke my ego.
