The light works. The gravity works. Anything else we have to take our chances with.

``Lost forgotten technologies,'' Donovan said. He sighed and tossed the cassettes to his bed. ``Our remote ancestors poked reeds into mud and baked mud into brick. We can still read those ancient thoughts, millennia later. But it seems that the greater the technology, the more ephemeral it becomes.''

Space stations, lasers, robots --- the game designers did a good job, whether it was Prey or Alien:Isolation. But I have one small note: put down the keyboard, go to the nearest hardware store and buy the most common flashlight that runs on the smallest fucking AAA batteries for 48 hours and stop poking me in the face with that battery indicator!

Gee, now I can experiment with packages in the virtual machine.I used chroot for manual editing and debugging, and this may have caused incompatibilities between packages because dsynth is best not run under chroot --- you will see a lot of scenic effects because dsynth itself uses a lot of jails inside😜

Yeah, it's a special style of &D
``I hate to dig a deeper hole, but I can't see how Zelda would possibly remind anyone of a tabletop D&D module. I'm trying to imagine how that session would go.

DM: You open the door. Inside the room are a bunch of blobby things bouncing around in patterns from one wall to wall. What do you want to do?

PLAYER: Run around throwing my sword at the blobby things while trying to avoid their attacks!

DM: Ah, the usual choice.''

The mighty Book Of C has arrived, I can now be forgiven for my awful sins at the hands of C++

17G of memory gets eaten up at the stage of figuring out which bits are responsible for I/O standards.
I think first to find some kind of profiler for Python not to cast in the dark. I hope there is such a thing in nature.

An unexpected quandary: I now don't know when they are considered ripe, while the best guess is that the greens will disappear.

Gee, no differences detected!
Now I would have to deal with the corner elements, if it were not for the heat outside the window🙂

disgruntled user's point of view 

I must be missing something here after all. I'd like to mark this video as a favorite, but I'm just not ready to make accounts on every instance.
And as an incompetent grumble: search, search, and search again, global. Every instance stores the video(!) after all can't it store, update and respond to queries on a small part of the global index?
But then again, I don't understand any of this:)

well, about masks: in the instruction set there is no bitwise AND and OR, instead there is BIC - clearing by mask, BIS - setting by mask and BIT - testing by mask😜

I am waiting for hardware accelerated virtualization for at least to run Dwarf Fortress on the same machine:)

The most exciting things happen on a screen with only a mishmash of letters and numbers:)

I hunted a little bit of cucumbers. These treacherous creatures that need an eye for: yesterday they were undergrown, and today they don't fit in the canning jar! :)

Walking around the site you can meet an edible Beholder and a flower almost from Andromeda (Mas Effect) :)

How does USB device discovery work?

I present you one of my favouritest YouTubers, Ben Eater. One really binge-worthy channel if you're curious about the electronic aspect of computing. One series he builds a custom breadboard computer, and the current series he is building a fully fledged computer with the 6502 chip.

In recent videos he implemented LCD display and keyboard over PS/2. Latest videos and this current one is about keyboard over USB.
