Apparently #ScreenshotSunday is a thing.. so may as well participate. :)
This is my desktop PC. Running Endeavour OS ( @EndeavourOS@mastodon.social ) .. XFCE. Not a ton of customizations, but .. form over function, I guess. :)
Good one, Mint. Ugh, snaps are the devil.
ZDNet: Linux Mint dumps Ubuntu Snap.
Started coding my "Blackjack in Go" project. So far it seems like it's working.. Got the game banner and the card shuffling routine done so far.
Still need to think a bit on how I want to code the game.
Not like it's super complex and/or there is a lot to think about.. I just have a few ideas in my head about how I want to go about it.
Also, while starting off, decided to try to make it as modular as possible. May do a few separate gambling-type games and create "GoCasino" out of them.
Anyhow, I decided to learn Go today and threw together a version written in Go. It works, it compiles, it runs. I'm pretty happy about that!
Uploaded it to Github so if anyone wants to see it (or any other versions).. enjoy.. or hell, create and submit your own in your favorite languate.. hah
So, back in the late 80s, my friend @firstname.lastname@example.org and I wrote a small text-based game as a joke called "Game 1".
It's a really basic game, uses basic coding principles, but it's always been a great tool to get some experience learning a new programming language. I hate trying to learn a new language with nothing to apply it to.
Update. I game on the laptop now, past self. Thank you for not selling it. :)
Oh, and as an update to my prior posts..the Gazelle pretty much shit the bed after 3 months of use.
I did like it, but I'm pretty sure it had issues that the seller didn't disclose when I bought it.
He said that he wasn't aware of any but find that extremely suspect. Eh well. eBay. What are ya gonna do.
I was able to salvage a bunch of parts from it, though, so it wasn't a total loss.
Hi there! Nice to meet ya!
