Finally gave my website a bit of an update, including the last game that I worked on: https://www.atoft.dev/
I wrote an article about the history of the HTTP status code and what I think it tells us about designing specifications and APIs:
If you liked my @365-rfcs project, this is a direct outgrowth of that work.
Trying out procedural volume textures to get seamless texturing across a terrain. Landed directly in the early nineties.

Not had too much time to try it so far, but UBPorts is pretty nice. The UI and the web browser are impressive. It's a bit locked down out of the box though, I'd like to be able to install normal packages without jumping through hoops.
I make things with computers.
