Every Friday, Popping more noodles.


; Hello World

Another quiet week at SoCoder. I think everyone's still exhausted after the Advent of Creativity.
My mind's been stuck in a weird "Anything but creativity" zone for the past couple of weeks, and as much as I've been trying to write the first AGameAWeek of the year, my head's been fighting against it.
Instead I've been playing Switch games, enjoying plenty of Netflix shows, and generally being a lazy shit.

Maybe a whole month of daily creativity wasn't actually such a great idea, after all..?


; Musical Pakz

Pakz continues to learn the ins and outs of his Korg Kronos Keyboard, but there seems to be a slight fault with it.
Hopefully it's nothing too major.
In the meantime, he's been posting musical snippets as he goes.

; Waving Members

Kuron recently said hello in my email inbox. He'd been alarmingly silent for about a year, and I was actually starting to worry, but he magically popped up, and said all is ok'ish!
That's good enough for me.
The spawned thread is full of old members we'd love to hear from, but never do.
Perhaps I should do another round of "Tracking Down", to see if I can get anyone to pop their head up...


; Pringle Flavoured Noodles

Not the best flavour they could've chosen.
Twenty minutes later, and I can still taste that sour cream flavouring at the back of my throat. Eeeuw..

; Peow Peow

Desperate to do anything other than coding, Jay picks up another new game for his Switch.
StarLink seems OK on the surface, but actually ends up feeling a lot like a jumbled randomly generated mess.

; RISCy Bisniss

The Explaining Computers.com Youtube channel features a look at RISCos running on an RPi.
Spurred on by this, Steve decides to give it a whirl, himself, and learns all about incompatibilities!!
