Pinned post

I got around to do another pass of the night life . I just tweaked the outline a bit and now the dark version is available on Baseball Caps, Pins and on T-Shirts. Yay; check it out.

The light version will follow soon.
Also I’m planning on adapting the design to fit on mobile phone covers.

Anything missing? Let me know. I’m happy to put it on additional products.

“Less haste, more fun.” is finally finished and can be purchased on my RB-shop.

Let’s focus on the essential things…

Soon I will upload an alternate “less hate, more fun” version. And I plan to add a version that is better suited for darker backgrounds. Stay tuned.

concept: superhero team whose codenames are all parts of the human body and the team is called the ORGANisation.

Bash Script follows:

#! /bin/bash

# Returns "the" current stardate.

CUR_TIME=$(date +%s)

SD_BASE=$(echo ${CUR_TIME} | cut -c 4-8)
SD_SCALE=$(echo "scale=3; $(date +%j --date=@${CUR_TIME})/365" | bc)

echo ${SD_BASE}${SD_SCALE}

exit 0

Here we go:

I made this totally not canon stardate generator which takes the middle part of the current unix timestamp and adds a three digit number after the floating point which represents the fraction of the current day in regards to the current year. Also every onehundred seconds the number left of the floating point increases by one; so you can generate multiple stardates on the same day.

This will do for now.

And it runs without a browser! 😎

Looking into the JavaScript of ditl.org/calc-stardate-page.ph to create a calculator shell script.

Why does everything have to run in a webbrowser?
This is literally 6 lines of code that make the calculations 😒

I think I need to do more creative work. I haven’t done or posted anything in quite a while. My weekends have been quite buzy these last few weeks; months?

There are some projects on hold, waiting for a bit of a time slot to fit in.
I don’t want to force it, though.

Half of the time I forget about some of the open todos. 😬 I did set up a kanboard to get my various projects and tasks in line. I hope this helps with keeping an overview.

Only you can write what you write the way you are writing it, and that's a good thing.

It means you are making something unique just by trying!

Since April, Antarctica has had an incredibly cool flag. It's called the True South flag and its meant to create a greater sense of community among the researchers and workers who call the continent home for parts of the year. It is in wide use across the continent!

I think I have a new hobby.😲

Studson creates 'adjective' dioramas and models from plastic waste.

Building something out of plastic does not reduce the amount of plastic in the world. But it I think it is still nice to just re-use old and unused items and create something new out of them.

Hello all Breath of the Wild fans. Wolf Link is doing a Minimal 100% Challenge. Which means going through the game with the minimal amount of resources used. Only do things that are mandatory to get to the 100% counter. Registering the shrines on the map is not mandatory. Only discovering is.

I think this is a very interesting challenge as it stimulates the player to be very creative.

Find more in the description of the video(s).

So I did a bit of on the . And I tell you; it’s ridiculously hard. The whole steering is quite bulky. Compared to the version on the switch you can very accurately move around. And the AI is more predicable. Enemies are really reacting to Link and attack when they see him. On the Gameboy® they just wander around, randomly shooting arrows or things and it’s hard to know when they attack. I wonder how we had the patience to play like that 30 years ago.

I would like to do a comparison between Links Awakening for GameBoy (not color) and Switch. I can imagine it is a bit harder on the GameBoy and more tedious. Since the Pegasus Boots and the Shield are not selected automatically. I can’t remember how it was with the flippers, though. I guess I have my work from September on cut out already.

Oh My God!!!! is adding 🧢 baseball caps to their products. I am absolutely delighted!

It’s going to be some effort to transfer existing designs to the new format, though.
But it’s going to be totally worth it. 🎉 ✨ 🤩

I’m playing Links Awakening. Again. See you mid August, I guess. 🧝‍♂️

Another day, another round for the night life .

I tried with more Cyrillic letters this time. But I’m not so sure this is the way to go. The more real Cyrillic letters there are, the more nonsense it becomes for somebody who can actually read Cyrillic. And I don’t want to be presumptuous about it.
After all I think this should be readable by somebody who is used to Latin script. But at the same time it should feel like a hint of Cyrillic in it.

Current work in Progress:
night life

I had the idea a couple of days back, when I was casually walking around town to stretch my legs a bit.

Some many years ago I saw the word "Berlin" from the wrong side of a transparent plastic bag and I thought “Hey; this looks somewhat like Cyrillic”. The image stuck in my head all these years. Now I get to make something of it.
I tried a few different fonts for this, but I settled with .
