Last blitter record on Atari STE : 23 sprites of 32x32, 4 bitplanes. At the same 320x200 resolution and with help from the CPU, the Amiga blitter can display 24 sprites.

When pushing the display area to 320x256 (with overscan on STE),the STE should stay at 23, while the Amiga slows down to 22.

However in any case the Amiga can also add two 32x32 hardware sprites.

This was achieved by optimizing the blitter calls and masking on STE.

hiteki boosted has resolved the issues with federation, it has been re-enabled.

Again, sorry for the outage folks!

In "Array languages for Clojurians," Dave Liepmann looks at APL and its descendants - reimplementing details along the way. The historical context enriches the read and puts the concepts within reach of mere mortals such as myself. #clojure #lisp #apl @bortzmeyer
Ca n'est pas du C++. C'est du (tres mauvais) C, meme si les extensions de fichiers en .cpp peuvent faire penser a autre chose. Mais effectivement, vu le niveau du code, ce detail est accessoire.

2AM I think it's enough clojure for tonight. 😴

Hello @SDF
There have been issue with the Mastodon instance recently. When this occurs where can we have info about the status of the server ? I saw nothing on bboard, nor on irc. 🤔

@papa Yay! \o/
Do you know what happens to it recently ?

Hi Fediverse 👋

to break the quietness of this account, here's a quick news flash:

- We added a list with Zoom alternatives 🤙

- We replaced some entries on "Bubbling under" 🔧

- We added Cryptpad to the Doodle list as it has a poll feature 🗒️

- Our DRM article has images now 🙃

- We have an Audible list in the pipeline 🎧

Thanks to @uniq for the nudge to write this! 😊👍

I didn't see that: exxos created an alt motherboard for Atari STF. You need to put all original chipsets from an Atari STF and it's 100% compatible, but with many extensions.

The picture shows the H4 revision with an alternative HDMI shifter on it.

Like the later STF revisions, you can also populate a blitter on it (yes, a lot of STF motherboards had socket connections for the blitter's IC).
