This is cool. The BBC Micro bot running on Twitter. Submit your BBC Micro Model B BASIC code that fits in a tweet and it will return an animated gif showing the output.
I imagine doing it on Mastodon, with it's larger toot size, would enable more elaborate BASIC programs to be run. 😃
Would be nice to extend it to the C64, ZX Spectrum, etc.

@Cyborgneticz :( Sorry to hear you had to do this! Hope they deal with it competently and, for you, empathetically, and mostly, that you're ok.
My new e-bookshop is open!
I believe discovery, fairness and inclusivity are at the heart of digital bookselling.
Inclusive and DRM-free
All formats for all devices, no need to convert. You get a DRM-free e-book that works and is yours to keep.
Fair means fair
Authors get 80% of the profit. No deep discounts, or e-books that cost the same as the print version.
A curated e-bookshop, every title read and loved before hitting the shelves.
re: uspol, virgina
@garbados I wish I could. I am a long way from the events over there but I came across this today on Popular Information and it's scary as hell: https://katz.substack.com/p/who-are-the-good-guys-in-richmond
This piece very effectively details all the issues with Brave's business model that I have been talking about. I wish the tone didn't come across as biased as it does, but the information is all accurate. It's definitely worth a read.
Anyone care to give feedback on these videos? I have a couple of pointers and hosting them at least additionally on PeerTube is a given, but that aside? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-RuV9nXyysbH0kB4pVqZT
Got to be honest, I like Birmingham. Worked there in the summer. Car free, it would be really something. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jan/16/banning-cars-city-centres-revolution-town-plannin
@Cyborgneticz I used to teach and student feedback always meant the most to me. I used to get rated highly by parents and teachers. Management were typically both amused and exasperated by me.

@kemonine Feature request: spoiled ballot :D
@Cyborgneticz Well earned, I'm sure :)
I'm easy on the inputs right now - typically engaging with Mastodon only through toot at the minute, which is conveniently enigmatic as far as notifications go (though I often get few enough the whole social media thing overlaps with my internal monologue, as it is intended to). I will change that soon but I'm not feeing that yet: I have some work to do. @krozruch
Insomnia - musings
I have been doing one hell of a lot of work. I'm rather burned out, but also pretty energised by that. May be too tired to sleep - cross-country skiing, lots of walking, writing, coding - or it may be a combination of thoughts about a coming launch, Iran (I saw it coming and was most depressed by it 12-18 months ago), New Year takings of bearings etc.

anyway we're going into 2020 and now more than ever in our lives, please let me encourage you: now is the time to just go completely goddamned hogwild with whatever your Thing is. doesn't matter if anybody else gets it, that ain't the point. just Do You; we're literally approaching the first major Cyberpunk Year from like every sleazy early-mid-90s RPG splatbook and now is not the time to be coy about self-identity.
