Ok, this Sokoban puzzle seems playable now.

https://akkartik.itch.io/sokoban

Still no scoring or really persistence of any kind. Just one step of undo (easy to extend if needed).

Credit again to lcamtuf for the sprites and for curating classic puzzles from the past.

Detail on a simple Sokoban level to highlight the individual sprites. A Sokoban puzzle shaped like a horse. A Sokoban puzzle shaped like a butterfly. A Sokoban puzzle shaped like a heart.

I just opened a terminal, did a double-take and knew instantly there was a leap year bug in code I wrote almost 25 years ago.

Somehow I didn't run into it the last 5 times it could have happened.

A quick and dirty cross-platform charting "library" in 200 lines that can crappily plot half the different kinds of charts out there on your computer or phone. And you can do surgery to it right on your phone.

I think I would never have gotten around to publishing this one if I'd known how much work proof-reading it was going to be.

A paper computer inside a silicon computer

Probably not a good idea, more like an occupational hazard.

Dynamically adjusting the ticks on the x- and y-axis of a plot as I pan around and zoom in and out on a multitouch screen.

I'm finally frustrated enough with the state of Mastodon search to start implementing my own local archive. If it's ever on my feed, it should be a grep away.

There are performance issues in putting search on the instance that disappear entirely if everyone just archives everything locally (and the archiver doesn't hammer at the instance too much)

This cute little program has been doing the rounds. Credit: https://hachyderm.io/deck/@bazzargh/111829275276749971; name from https://pong-wars.koenvangilst.nl, though I tend to think of this as Yin-Yang for Pong. Maybe Pin-Pong?
