The Mahabharata on social media 

It's weird porting a script I wrote about five years ago with an earlier version of the system into a total rewrite of the same system.

Ended up with a very compatible result to the old renders though.

"I do not hear anything but the EQs show there is something"

A gracious shopkeeper who went out of their way to look and see if this inaudible short-run CDr I want to buy from them is the same edition as the last inaudible short-run CDr I bought from them.

My raspberry pi 4 has survived three drops onto a hard wood floor from about 2 feet up.

My cat really likes or hates the cooling fans so he's been drop-testing it for me.

Ah cool the author also has a page with a bunch of games and experiments:

I also have no idea what the hell it is but it was polite enough to welcome me several times!

This is a nice abuse of the wix platform for geocities-level internet homesteading:

I already forgot how I found this!

I think maybe I'll just wait for the videos to be posted again this year. Ah well.

Oh! I forgot 2 finally hit end of life:

Python is dead, long live python!

Will there be an end of life party at Pycon2020?

Mr Cat managed to route my laptop audio through the tape out and disable the normal output with fader control of course.

Web development is starting to feel like it did 15 years ago and I'm actually kind of having fun again.

Getting familiar again with the state of standard APIs on a new work project, not to mention switching to a very simple Flask-based frontend middleware + no JS frameworks approach: just typed python & flask w/jinja2 templates, es7, scss, bash script and Makefile tooling... no npm nowhere!

It's nice to throw out the magical black boxes and get some work done... :)

I like that bandcamp distinguishes full plays from partial plays from skips, but it would be even cooler if you could see where listeners were actually jumping ship...

Hey that's not too shabby. I just realized the current pippi test suite renders about 15 minutes of audio, running through most of its functionality & capabilities in about 13 seconds. As meaningless as any other benchmark but still nice to realize.

I just spent some time cleaning up the tests a tiny bit and it's also nice to be like -- oh yeah! That tukey osc sounds cool, I should use that more! I forgot I added a bar physical model from soundpipe! Etc...

Here's the output all as one file...

When am I finally going to stop having to look up Ctl-K for entering special characters in ? 😕

Today's listening: Lionel Marchetti, Nathan Michel, M.C. Schmidt, Seth Parker Woods, Toshiya Tsunoda / Taku Unami, Toshiya Tsunoda

The final disc of the Toshiya Tsunoda box set has some really lush drones near the end.

Track 10 with the intermittent jangly ring of the market bell somewhere in the distance that makes a nice harmony with the (loud) resonant hum of the space inside an abandoned fish market is outstanding.
