Isn't the world a lovely place but in a fine old state though?

It's nice to know that today, Larry Ellison is really, really unhappy, and he's not going to stop being really, really unhappy for probably a while. ✨

Boosting this video bc it deserves more attention

From the description:
"Mac Toaster was my entry in to a January 1994 contest: Best QuickTime Video that fits on a 1.4MB Floppy Disk."

Why yes, of course the forum has an RSS feed.

But don't be a lurker - come and join the conversation!

The #a2pico is a small expansion board for the Apple IIe bus that I'm developing. It's primarily a learning project for me so I can out the odd corners of the RP2040 microcontroller. It has a USB upstream connection, and can in theory emulate almost any expansion card, halt the processor, do DMA transactions, etc.

A very unusual thing about my approach is that the REPL is just continuously projecting the live objects, not making some kind of copy for inspection purposes... which means the "history" can be altered by mutating objects that you've previously interacted with. IMO having a live inspector as an option is useful and good, but the UX of putting it in a REPL is definitely surprising.

i find "Segmentation fault (core dumped)" really funny because unix has never been on a machine with both core to dump and memory segmentation

It's nearly the end of March, and my fingers still type 2012. Which isn't even an out-by-one.

Fast message passing with Rust-like semantics to borrow, mutably borrow, or move pages between processes... enforced using the read-only, read-write, or remapping of pages between processes."
