Writing a hacky piece of code and making the license just be "be gay, do crimes"

πŸ’™ I realized I can just use Clip Studio Paint on my laptop with my screen graphics tablet as a whiteboard for planning things and this revelation has changed everything

duck duck bing how to not get mildly annoyed at the C programming language

πŸ’™ Now I have to decide if I want to sleep or if I want to continue working on this, lmao

πŸ’™ Well, I've written most of a memory allocator for the weird OS kernel tonight, that's been fun

πŸ’™ Why am I suddenly thinking about GameCube homebrew development

πŸ’™ Probably going to build a little Pi Zero 2W cluster soon lmao

We’ve been working on a new OS kernel project! In C, even!

So far the kernel stdlib is a weird amalgamation of renamed semi-POSIX-compliant functions; things that remind me of the PalmOS application API; and cursed bullshit.

Should be fun :)

πŸ’™ Now to wait for my only Windows machine to update so that I can flash 4.1 on this fucker and start installing some things

πŸ’™ I am currently writing code to do page layout stuff & PDF generation from those laid out pages.

It's horrible and I don't recommend it :)

πŸ’™ Thinking about getting another dirt-cheap laptop (the X131e is attractive) for a few reasons, one of which is β€œthen I can sell the machines that would actually get me money”

Another is β€œa cheap laptop means I’m not afraid to modify the fuck out of it” - I’m likely gonna get the Storybook System to do some custom art on the top lid, and also maybe fit some extra shit internally

πŸ’™ I'm pretty damn tempted to pick up a ThinkPad X131e, throw NetBSD on it, and use that as my main portable machine - especially now that I have the remote development setup that I have
