My favorite part of my zsh config

A few years ago, I thought it would be funny to have sudo cd work to cd into nonexistent directories, and so I manifested: read more

A Little Landscape Toy

Been a moment since I've posted! Got a bunch of ideas at like 60% polish, so I figure I'll post a work in progress. Here's a little toy that came out of "hey can I do isometric graphics using CSS for layout?" The answer is: yes, and it's gnarly: read more

When the Playdate SDK was released, I decided I wanted to try my hand at gamedev for the platform- I didn't really know Lua (and didn't want to mess with C) so it made sense to focus on porting an existing game that felt at-home on the device. I settled on solitaire, because every platform needs a solitaire game! read more

Marching Squares and Metaballs

I listened to Counting Crows' 2021 album "Butter Miracle Suite One"

For this week's Property Cousins stream, I was assigned as homework the 2021 Counting Crows album Butter Miracle Suite One. The following are the notes I took during a blind first listen: read more
