Did the documentation somehow become worse in the last 6 months? I feel like they've removed so much of it...

Packaging commercial software for Linux is so much worse than for Windows or macOS. It's absolutely miserable.

Posted another screenshot of Bounce! for the DEC Rainbow 100! Not sure why I haven't posted the game yet... Seems to be done...

Just posted episode 15 of the Jeff Reads His Book ! I finally have a guest, my delightful wife, helping me read through this catastrophe. Aside from bitching about brunch, we laugh quite a bit at typos in chapter 15.

If you're doing , best of luck! You too can end up with a delightful story like this!

Just had to log into the core bug tracker to remove myself from a bug I submitted in 2014. There's movement on it now, and it only took 4 years 9 months!

Rainbow 100 machine detection that I wrote looks at two memory locations to see if either says "Rainbow," so it might fail on alternate or foreign language ROMs...

It took me ages to actually implement system detection. Should work on real Rainbow 100 A and B machines, but not IBM-compatibles...

Episode 10 of the Jeff Reads His Book is now available with plenty of giggling at my terrible wordsmithing! The longest chapter yet is packed full of magical battling and awkward, implied romance!
