I feel like we've come so far but, at the same time, being a programmer I like the idea of describing an animation rather than drawing it.

Version 0.11.0 of my Python Dual Tree Complex Wavelet Transform library has been released. Get it via pypi and/or read the documentation online.

TIL that sloccount doesn't count any JavaScript as a line of code. I think I may agree with it.

I've been designing and building the front panel and associated bus monitoring hardware for Búri, my homebrew 6502-based computer. Here's some demo blinkenlights.

My B compiler can now run a somewhat involved example taken from Ken Thompson's original memo on the B language. (https://www.bell-labs.com/usr/dmr/www/kbman.html)

I came across http://roadstorome.moovellab.com/ the other day which has a nice visualisation of the shortest road paths to Rome over Europe. I wondered if I could reproduce this for my own home. Turns out that the Ordnance Survey has a nice dataset of the UK road network to download. I also expected that I'd have to write some sort of data processing code in Python. Turns out that I could do all of the computation in PostgreSQL, PostGIS and pgRouting.

Thought while working: there should be an equivalent of "sl" called "car".

A while ago I wrote https://yakking.branchable.com/posts/truism-1-if-you-dont-know-why/ which recognises that sometimes your reason is simply "for fun"

After typing the correct command into the wrong terminal for the n th time I'm left wondering: does anyone know of any magic one can put in a bashrc to set the background colour of the terminal. I'd like a per-machine config which changes as I SSH around.

Edit: Obviously my initial Google-ing proved fruitless.

You might get some distance with setting background, or setting foreground and reverse video, with the likes of
tput setaf 2 && tput rev && tput clear
tput setab $(($RANDOM % 9)) && tput clear
or
setterm -term linux -background yellow
setterm -term linux -foreground red  -reverse

However, it doesn't quite work when you do things like running an editor or a pager.

As luck would have it GCC compiles it to a machine multiply instruction anyway ... optimizing away the bug that would otherwise exist for a<0.
