Hello WASM


I've been playing around with Javascript and WebAssembly, this week, after finally getting to grips with a simple way of using it.
It's not quite the all-in-one solution I was hoping for, and is requiring a heck of a lot more fore-thought that I expected.
You can't simply hop in and out of WASM, as that ends up slowing things back down again. The best option is to ..
...
Oh god..
.. Rewrite huge swathes of the thing in just WASM, as much as I can, so that it can flow quicker in pure WASM without having to hop in and out all the time.
Can I manage to do that?!
It's taken me 8 months to get this far, and it feels like it's kinda a great big "Redo From Start". I'm not sure I have the energy for that.
Hmmm.

Watching the Time

Spinal makes a second watchface for the Fitbit. A lovely analogue face that moves and zooms depending on the time.
A really nice effect!

Tweeting a Game

Jay issues a challenge to write little tiny games/demos/etc that can fit inside a single Tweet.
Can it be done?!
What can you manage in only 280 characters!?!

SoStayIndoors


As Covid issues all but fizzle out, the sheer insanity of Brexit is starting to show up in ways nobody (*everybody) could possibly have imagined.
Shop shelves are getting emptier, there's no petrol in the pumps, and the army's readying to do all the deliveries and more.
Oh yes.
It's all going so wonderfully well.

Look out for GM foods in your shopping.
Coming soon to a supermarket near you!

BREAKING NEWS : North Korea's playing with new Missile technology, too.
Woohoo!!

Babylon 5 Revival

The other "Sci-Fi on a Space Station" show, fondly remembered by Amigans as one of the two major Sci-Fi TV shows with CGI rendered on the system.
The series is being brought back to life by The CW, a channel mostly famous for teen-dramas, so god only knows what's going to be happening here.
Perhaps B5 will have a myriad of "the children of the more important characters", and they'll all have a multitude of generic romance storylines, on board the station.
Oh joy.
"The station is going to explode. This is my only chance to tell you that I love you!!!"

Write Revival

A completely unexpected development in the world of Doctor Who, as Russell T Davies is named as the next showrunner.
Brought back to helm the 60th Anniversary, it looks like he's opted to stick around a little while longer.
