#WYLang is so funny and accessible to anyone who reads literary Chinese. They have done yeoman’s work making this! It makes *actually readable sense* instead of the folderol of JS. This is truly humane, intimate, culturally rooted programming. Between this and #Racket I’m more enthused about code than in many years.
Little flourishes of care: I love they use 爻 (Yijing component) for binary and 干支 for variables. And the indents are optional!
#EllaHour in a nutshell.
Far out! The code key for AO7’s telemetry. So now if he flies overhead, just find hims beacon on 29.5/145.98 MHz, then decode the rtty. Then we can see if he is happy in various systems by comparing the channels in the telemetry to the chart. “Hi hi!”
AO7 is a very good ancient satellite! He works so hard. There should be a way to report telemetry and graph it like for Fox sats.
AO-7 here shows off to prove that satellite cleanroom manufacturing is for *wimps.*
Oscar 7 has been flying around bouncing #hamradio transmissions in 5 ways since 1974, the same year as poor old Skylab went kablooie.
Bunnysuits? We don’t need no stinking bunnysuits.
AO-7 is also a real cutie pie of a satellite. I’ve been a fan for years, but never talked to hims or even heard his telemetry. (Probably hims oldschool solar panels were too shaded those days.)
Who couldn’t be happy to have a chance to chat with this miracle robot? He has done so well for so long for us. We are ever so proud of you, Oscar7! 💖
So going forward, it probably is good form to make #Gopher maps select for regular or colour. I shall try! https://mastodon.sdf.org/media/D4rLeijfghFBJWcmbw0
