Hi, I'm Juan πŸ‘‹

I was looking for a Masto instance I could trust and I thought SDF (in operation since 1987) is the type of commitment I like πŸ‘

(also have an account in SDF-EU, although I haven't used it much so far)

I've been hosting my own email and web since 2003, so what I'm looking for is more the community aspect of SDF/tildeverse.

I do retro-gamedev (ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, MSX and Commodore 64), and other types of "dev" in , , , , and .

Seems to work fine (tests!). I'll write continue and break support tomorrow.

See this toot:

Got while!

Now let's write some tests to actually prove *we have it* πŸ˜‚

Every time we see a police car on the street I say "look! the police!" followed by a "Rooxaaanne!" in falsetto.

We are listening to the song now, and the boys finally got the joke πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

What a mess is the static version of ...

It is using a Federated Wiki IIRC, but the issue is the UI. Or may be it feels as alien as the original wiki idea felt to people back then.

Does anybody know a mirror that is sensible to use? Archive org has the wayback machine, but it is kind of slow.

It is unbelievable what shitfest is Microsoft accounts taking over Mojang accounts and Minecraft 😩

As part of not knowing what I'm doing and learning by "doing things my way" (did I say I don't know what I'm doing?), turns out I was making a significant mistake in the interpreter.

I have fixed that, but the language is still slow; which is expected as is a tree-walk interpreter.

Tried another implementation of lox built using the book and Go, and my version seems to be a little faster. So looks like I'm getting there!

Watched EP02 last night, and the waiting keeps the same tone. It's a shame because now that we are paying attention, is too obvious (and annoying).

May be Discovery was like this all the time, or we didn't notice until late. Or the writing changed. Either way, same issue.

I don't like Alpine colours though, so it is B&W for me!

Alpine as a news reader is really sweet. It takes me back to my first experience with the Internet back in University around 1998.

There was no Windows or GUI on a lab, so it was almost always available. Pine and Lynx were perfect!

I knew my interpreter is slow, but I dared to look how slow it was, and although I'm not 100% sure, t suspect could be in the "very slow" category.

That's OK!

Fixed the closures and I have (some) tests to prove it! πŸŽ‰

I gave a clean to my PC and we're back to 39Β°C instead the 59Β°C it had last week.

So basically: remember to remove the fluff from inside your PC, it may be obstructing the CPU fan etc.

Well, those are practically for loops thanks to the tail call optimization.

Call a function passing a parameter from n to m and if the function returns false, end the loop (a break).

Return true early in the function being called, and that's a continue.

For loops? Where we're going, we don't need for loops.

(I will implement some sort of loops anyway, but I'm still testing functions and there's a bug in the closures code)
