Hi from Haiku

I complain about things a lot, so let's talk about something I actually like, for a change: the Haiku operating system.

Eureka Sketch

I watched Eureka Seven recently, so to get it out of my system I did a quick sketch of Eureka.

Android is braindead

Or rather, whoever designed it is. postmarketOS can't come soon enough.

webm encoding

I have a number of videos on my site, mostly in the webm format and encoded with VP9 for video and vorbis for audio. I thought I might share how I do my encoding in case it can be useful for someone.

Enigma Expedition, Part 2

The 13th meetup of the enigma expedition was on the 30th local time, and I missed both of them, and considering recent events, now seems like a good time to do some writing.

Laptops are like kicking dead whales down the beach

Laptops suck. That's rather hypocritical of me, as I'm writing this on my ThinkPad T420 running Haiku, but at present, you can't get a laptop that has a good display, is reasonably powerful, has a good keyboard, and doesn't have an x86 processor.

Enigma Expedition, Part 1

In the last Elite: Dangerous post I mentioned I was going to be participating in the Enigma Expedition. It's currently day 6, my Dolphin is landed in the Lagoon Nebula near Thor's Eye, and here's some more pretty pictures and videos.

Prehistoric webms

I've been collecting videos of old computer stuff for a while, and I converted a few to webm and thought I might share them:

20 days of Elite: Dangerous

On the 24th I bought my copy of Elite: Dangerous for about $20 in the Steam Winter sale. I've taken a lot of screenshots so here's what I think and what I've done, I guess. This isn't my usual sort of post, and there'll probably be plenty of pictures.

Happy Winter Sale, plus a surprise.

Tis the season, I guess. Have fun. Thought I'd share what I've been working on.
