Here’s the stuff I’ve made that I’m most proud of.
Here’s my latest posts to the free fediverse, some rambling, some ranting, mostly just commenting on stuff I’ve read lately. Some of it gets syndicated to Twitter but mostly not. The best of it reaches my monthly digest email.
I'll be closing the account, obviously. Probably to re-open the dormant Revulot app.
I don't need my bank to tell me what to do with my money.
Yep that's how it goes.
I don't really even play non-VR games any more, or barely even leave the house let alone need a portable games machine, and yet I'm filled with desire for it.
I think Richard Heart is about to reveal just how much of the stuff on Etherium is really centralized garbage that might as well have been a SQL database.
He's gonna fork all the tokens into a new proof-of-stake chain, and my guess is almost none of those tokens will actually do the thing they're supposed to do unless they are supported by their parent company's services.
Which presumably they mostly won't be, at least to start with.
Anyway, seems interesting. Looking forward to seeing how it goes.
I left the flat! Went to see this interactive theatre Doctor Who show thing.
It was great.
Guided between rooms and sliding across time and space to see these live-acted skits between the doctor's monsters. Video stuff from all the doc's faces and voices. Even the dead ones somehow.
Feels like an individual could only possibly see about a third of it. Always missing things in the other rooms.
The Doctor told me not to talk about it but that'd be an awful media strategy for a show so I guess she just meant no spoilers.
The war with the robots actually started in about 1998.
That's when the spam started to get out of control and any unattended login-forms would be filled with spam.
I've been fighting the robots ever since. They get more sophisticated, and we counter with Bayesian trained spam/ham, filters.They start filling in forms, we add "not a robot" tests.
The robots aren't smart enough to program themselves yet, but somehow they are recruiting an army of turncoat humans who betray their species by helping those robots to try dictionary-attacks on login forms or find ways to bypass spam-filters.
How would you face your family if that's what you spent your time doing?
- What did you do in the robot wars of the 21st century grandad?
- Oh, I helped the robots evade the human defences and find ways to fill their email-lists with spam.
