Hi, I'm Sam! I taught myself #programming in the '80s on a Commodore 64 and an IBM PC XT with QBasic. Now I'm a software developer at IRCCloud, building #Android and #iOS apps in #java and #ObjectiveC. Previously I worked on #music streaming apps at Last.fm.
Forgot to post this last month, so here's what I've been playing over the past 2 months:
✈️ Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
🚀 Elite: Dangerous
🚛 Euro Truck Simulator 2
🏡 Townsmen - A Kingdom Rebuilt
🔍 Kathy Rain: Director's Cut
🎞 The Atlas Mystery
🏝 Townsmen VR
🏎 Touring Karts
🛣 Please Fix The Road
💧 Spring Falls
Now I can automatically decrypt the filesystem just by plugging in the key during boot, and login / sudo just by tapping the button! No more typing passwords, but everything is still encrypted and secure.
A little disappointed that Intel Macs can't use it with FileVault during boot, but the Mac already has a fingerprint reader so I wasn't planning to use the YubiKey with it anyway.
Started using this over the weekend and it's awesome!
So much better than copying public key files between my Mac, Windows, and Linux machines. Love how it even auto filled the key on the GitHub account settings page!
I hope they'll also add GPG keys for signing my git commits in the future too.
I was previously using a docker installation on #Ubuntu that is no longer officially supported, and various things stopped working properly recently.
Haven't noticed any performance difference between docker and the virtual machine, and now it's officially supported and much easier to maintain!
OK, I've finally finished version 1.3 of Wordle for the #c64.
Maybe it should be called v2.0 compared to my last release because this one loads instantly and doesn't crash with a full gosub stack after 3 games.
It's on my github now and video coming after dinner.
free piano concert on twitch
I'm settling down with a cup of licorice tea to watch a piano concert of classic videogame music by Trevor Alan Gomes, starting in ten minutes at http://www.twitch.tv/88bitmusic
This guy's an incredible pianist, and a major inspiration for me picking up the piano again after two decades. These streams are always a real chill time, & a delightful end to the week. Why not join me!
Giving up on trying to rename my Mastodon instance for now, trying to run 2 instances on the same host to do the transfer is just not worth all the effort for a slightly shorter web address 😝
Might have another go if I ever need to move this instance onto more powerful hardware in the future, but it's fine as it is for now.
