*((void*)0) being UD is the stupidiest shit ever. please just let me read that memory address, i know what i'm fucking doing. and if someone isn't, then they'll segfault anyways - why would you special case this

there's a bug in my display.
a real fucking one.
i unplugged it a while ago, the fucker is still buzzing inside from time to time trying to get out.

what am i even supposed to do? even if it somehow gets out without dying inside of the damn thing, it could leave some eggs or something. did the display just forever become a fire hazard?

I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.

I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.

I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.

An older #collage #poem that I haven't posted over here yet.

The thing I really enjoy about collaging is the constraint it imposes... Writing poetry from scratch with no constraints just isn't fun for me, but I love the challenge of trying to create something interesting from snipped-up junk mail!

this toot was served from a static web host! and yet it's boostable!? i didn't honestly expect this to actually work...

@pho4cexa how does orbital.rodeo/~pho4cexa/status work? do you have a writeup of it or something? because that's super intruiging

watching hundred rabbits, a whole two people, speedrun an alternate-history timeline re-implementation of everything that was close to good about my first 10 years of computers really puts into perspective how wasteful and inefficient the industry is

they've accomplished 90% of the utility in 1% of the time and lines of code

there's something significant being demonstrated in the uxn space and it's way way bigger than two kids on a boat making weird retro styled software

Ig i'll do an #introduction ! My name is appa, and I'm a college student currently working on getting an art degree. My favorite things to draw are my silly little DnD characters and other fantasy inspired things (and also sometimes silly little cats.) Here are a few pieces I've made over the past year!

this is hands down one of my favorite photographs I’ve ever taken; was on my moon bullshit in my backyard with a zoom lens and a BAT flew through the damn frame

#OtD 13 Apr 1985 Danuta Danielsson, the Polish-Jewish daughter of a Holocaust survivor, hit a neo-Nazi on the head with her handbag in Växjö, Sweden. The Nazis were then chased out of town. We have some anti-fascist merch here to help fund our work: shop.workingclasshistory.com/c

so recently i've been thinking about making a modern terminal.

TUIs have a lot of advantages. they're composable (think tmux), you can easily attach to remote programs, they're cheap to render

but, it's 2022 and we're still using terminals from the 80s. every TUI app reimplements its own scrolling, buttons, resulting in a mess where everything works in a different way.
you can't copy text from TUI apps properly, because your terminal has no idea that there are different regions on the screen. if there are multiple side-by-side regions (think an IRC nicklist, or git.charm.sh's sidebar), you'll just copy all of them

we really could do better.
so, would anyone be interested in a project about making a terminal actually fit for TUI apps? i'd like to try working on it, and i'd really appreciate some diverse input
