CONCORDIA LEM:
You've never played Sigmar's Garden? I thought everyone knew this game. You put the gumballs in a certain pattern, and--

ANATAEUS VAYA:
Gumballs?

CONCORDIA LEM:
Isn't that what these are?

ANATAEUS VAYA:
They're elemental proxies! Do not eat the elemental proxies!

@zeh honestly I really like this. I'd rather use : or such to route through compound objects and namespaces, and use . as a painless name separator.

does anyone know of any FOSS tools for working with files on playstation game discs? I want to revisit a long lost project I did back in high school where I extracted pre-rendered background images from a JRPG and reconstructed the scenes.

I pushed a new build to correct the behavior of the torus function. Also this means the current build now has the wheel model rewritten in Lua!

@zeh my favorite is only possible in languages like scheme: hyphen-case

it has all the clarity benefit of snake_case but you also never have to hold down a modifier key while typing variable names, so it's more RSI friendly

I have a public build of Tangerine on itch now if anyone is interested. Currently only the Windows build is available. This also is Lua-only at the moment.

I will likely distribute builds with both Lua and Racket embedded in the future, but I am waiting for several bugs in Racket to be fixed upstream before I distribute any builds with it.

There's two people working on the Linux port right now, and so I'm hopeful that I'll be able to distribute Linux builds soon.

@fedor cute :D it kind of has the same energy as a dr bronner's soap bottle

@fedor I'm happy that open hardware projects are both getting more ambitious and more successful. I hope some day soon I'll be able to just buy my dream netbook as a kit from adafruit or sparkfun or something

Why Lua a̶r̶r̶a̶y̶s̶ tables are 1-indexed instead of 0?

The reasons:

It wasn't a thing yet (Lua is more than 25 years old)

And most of langs are 0-indexed because of the C influence, not really for a good reason especifically.

grumbling about flat design 

I really hate the new dark theme in visual studio 2022, what a step down from 2019's. Thankfully someone ported the old theme forward, but still.

Why are UI designers so dead set on removing any and all visual clarity? 😠

Explored github copilot,a paid service, to see if it encodes code from repositories w/ restrictive licenses.

I checked if it had code I had written at my previous employer that has a license allowing its use only for free games and requiring attaching the license.
yeah it does
