I think I'm gonna stick with retro gaming, on my trusty TI-84 Plus. It runs zTetris, and MathPrint is the loveliest glitchfest ever. What more could you ask for?

Well I don't really know where the limitations on the CE come from, but on 68k it should hopefully be however much free RAM you have. Especially if compiled as a flash app, because in that case it'll execute directly from flash, while "ASM" programs always run from RAM, even when they're archived. I suspect pedrom might allow you to use even more RAM, but pedrom is no fun. Or one could try to implement a similar trick to TI-Boy, which I believe saves your RAM to flash in order to be able to use all of it.

Lol wow, it's nice to know these old forums are still even online these days.

It's already an LED light. :P The fixture has a bit of room for airflow though my mount actually blocks the openings at the top so I could improve that eventually, but I don't think it should be a problem at all.

The printer prints as good and as accurate as you build and calibrate it. Dimensional accuracy is already spot on but there's still some room for improvement for small detail quality, I need to spend more time calibrating it. In fact that's really what's blocking the finishing touches, I need to print a few more parts (grills, enclosure parts and things like a cable cover for the print head), and I want them to look good.

For the 68k I'll definitely be going with native code. I was also talking about micropython and building flash apps with Lionel Debroux on IRC the other day. I'd also like to bring up modern languages like Rust and Zig on this platform. This stuff needs some tooling work, so I'll work on it when I'm not too busy with other big projects.

After a long hiatus I suppose it's appropriate to send things off with a necropost, so here we go. :^)

I've been pretty busy.
I wanted to make a custom keyboard, but I needed a way to make the chassis/case.
So I bought a 3D printer and had some fun with it, but I realized I wasn't entirely satisfied with the build quality even after doubling its worth with aftermarket upgrades... so I built another one so I could print harder, better, faster and stronger. This is it:

It prints great. Still need some finishes and the enclosure, but I got distracted designing a new control board for it, so I'm kinda neglecting the build itself.

This weekend I adapted a new light fixture to my ceiling fan. Before/after:

This was necessary because the original fixture expects two bulbs mounted horizontally, but I only wanted one vertical bulb for even lighting around the room. Also, less glare on my monitor this way. The 3D printer was really useful to make an adapter mount (the new fixture is supposed to hang from the ceiling by the cable, but I wanted a rigid mount).

In summary, this is how you make a keyboard:

That aside, I've also been working on my GameCube disc drive emulator on and off. Someone else released a seriously disappointing device and they're now shoveling more mediocre products for other consoles, so I kinda want to show them how to do it right. :P (and also show myself I can actually finish a project)

I also got two 68k calculators recently (an 89 HW1 and a V200), so I might try to get something going for that platform eventually.
I've been hanging out on Discord/IRC, but anyway, guess who's back?

It's called You Think Like a Man, by Divine (1984)
Did you mix them up on purpose ? :P

I've seen the picture. It's amazing. I feel changed.

Sounds fun. Do you ever hang out in #gbadev on efnet ?
No, should I?

How active is it?
Not very active but usually when there's interesting stuff to talk about, people are there.

This is some really nice stuff, kinda sad that development is slow as ever though.

We will be handling the matter, locking the thread until then.

Considering 99% of content is called Windows, Linux, Dragon Ball or Pokémon, I don't see why this matters with this project in particular, but I think it should at least be renamed to something less clickbait or something such as Basiclinux or Linux 84+CE
My main concern is that this thread is called "Linux" when it's in fact something unrelated, which is confusing for everyone.

Lots of people have made programs they called "Windows" for the calculators -- only about time for Linux to have its trademark infringed too :)
