Retro stuff

I like old stuff, mostly the old stuff that looks futuristic, I also like new stuff that look futuristic, but there's not that much of it around. I found the "Vault of the Atomic Space Age" site, and it's pretty entertaining. http://thevaultoftheatomicspaceage.tumblr.com/

The Weekend Curse

It's 11:41, I've done nothing but watch 2 episodes of an Anime. It's not that I don't have anything to do, or that I don't want to do anything. It's that there are so many options, and so many things I'd like to do that I become paralyzed by the choice. It takes a day or so, before I get into the mood where I can naturally choose the thing I want to do. I'd prefer if weeks were arranged so there's 5 working days and 5 recreation days. My girlfriend suggested that I make a list, I wrote it off quickly because I have an aversion to being forced to do anything, even if it is something I'd otherwise enjoy. But I think she is right about the list, I should do that. I haven't streamed for some time. Maybe I should try and get further in Hotline Miami tonight. Maybe I should spend the day making the HTML renderer for my website. But I ran into some trouble, mainly finding a consistent way to render monospace and preserve spaces.. I tried using <pre> but then I wouldn't be able to inject links and images, which is something I want to do. Maybe the mood for fixing that will hit me after a few more anime episodes. :)

SIDs are good for coding

I'm listening to my SIDs with sidplayfp, because I've not yet built the hardware SID play that I've thought about so many times.. The design has changed in my head too many times to count, but some day I'll build the box. I think I want it to be network attached, maybe one sends SID files and playback commands to it so it can be used from the computer (command station).

Well well well

Fancy HTML we have here.. Or, rather, on http://dusted.dk/pages/phlog/ I decided to write the HTML renderer for my plaintext files. Did not inline images because it wouldn't have looked as good, and I'm being quite tough on the browser with regards to use of the &nbsp; entity, but I want it looking nice and that was just the easiest way I could think of. I spent way longer writing it, but I do have a habit of underestimating time. Anyway, it went well enough. So now, the weekend coding has ended, and I will waste the rest of the time mindlessly consuming media of various kinds, and I think I will start by finishing the brain-dead anime that I started on before I started coding. It is called "I don't understand what my husband is saying" and it's fun enough.
