HOLY SHIT, I watched Unfrosted, the Jerry Seinfeld-directed, -produced, -written-by and -starring story of Pop Tarts, and I can see why Seinfeld was promoting it by bemoaning the chilling effect of "woke" on comedy - this is some of the most incendiary shit I have ever seen, so many f- and c-words and an absolutely blistering, take-no-prisoners evisceration of conventional wisdom and the status quo.

Just opened my ThinkPad and for the second time in three days the act of closing the laptop to sleep it, then opening it again had caused Ubuntu to hardlock. This time I got a very brief small printout about "amd ring 0 error", then it went back to a black screen and I had to hold down the power button again.

I thought getting a ThinkPad, getting AMD cpu/gpu and picking the Linux distro Lenovo lists as supported would mean I got a minimally functioning computer but I guess not.

@b0rk @mcc Is sleep/wake still bad?

Treating myself to an awful game.

I want you to understand how awful this game is:

If you don't turn vsync on, you can't move. Framerates over 60fps cause the inputs to glitch out.

That's right, "hold RIGHT control to run" is not the worst thing about these controls.

Leaving Rust gamedev after 3 years

This is one of those scary articles because it’s hard to find fault with it and the author’s experience beats my own in terms of time with rust and breadth in gamedev. #rustlang https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40172033

2/ It’s a little odd that the author faults rust on prototyping but then shows code with clone() as a solution, which it and unwrap() very much is what you want to do while prototyping.

shanecelis,
@shanecelis@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

3/ Sometimes clone() is a kind of obvious wart, which you often can avoid with some refactoring if performance is paramount. But a lot of this article insists performance isn’t paramount; prototyping speed is. It’d be a stronger article if the author embraced clone() and unwrap() to boost his prototyping speed and said it was still unacceptable.

shanecelis,
@shanecelis@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

4/ But overall the article has a lot of merit. Nice of him to share his experience. I’m still having too much fun to consider giving up rust gamedev but this is a sobering perspective.

shanecelis,
@shanecelis@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

5/ An interesting counterpoint in the discussion, admitting that rust is not gamedev scripting friendly but why not have the high level scripts in lua, the low-mid in rust?

@mcc Nice shadows!

You know I got me one of them FPGAboys, but I haven't delved into it yet. I was arrested by an idea though. I had read about posits as an alternative to floats and thought, "Cool. Maybe in ten years they'll be available in hardware," then put it out of my mind. But with FPGAs it would seem possible to build your own posits.

Anyway just an idle thought. Love seeing your actual work running on the Analogue Pocket.
