Hey, I'm Gaeel
I make digital contraptions, interactive GIFs, bad decisions and funny code
I dabble in electronic music, and I'm the captain of Hallowed be thy Name, a star-faring freighter in search of nice place to sit down with a laptop and some friends

Adding string similarity detection to suggest new groups to add to the filter rules
For instance here, I can easily see what regex I need to write to detect searches and documentation

Okay, I think I went the right way with my custom tracker this time
While I'm nowhere near having the report displays and analytics I'd like, I'm already tracking data
If I get bored tomorrow and pick this up again next week, I won't have lost a week's worth of tracking, in fact, I'll have a week's worth of data to write cool visualisation tools with

ugh the neighbors have been just BLASTING 4′33″ out their stereos all morning

So I'm going to be posting more of my stranger, experimental art over at @gaeel, keeping this account for everything else
I'll occasionally cross-boost stuff too

Here's an in-progress, displaying the path of one of the rays
In this simulation, colour is determined based on the position on the circle
The ray splits into 6 on its first bounce, and has a chance of bouncing, refracting or diffusing on each line

Another render from last night

This is made by casting millions of rays and drawing their paths

Fine... One more, but I have to go to bed now...

Here, have a random 2D light field render

With the radio tuned somewhere between two stations, we began to hear a sound that was at once familiar yet completely alien. Who is broadcasting? Why are they broadcasting? And why are we so compelled to keep listening?

Before the internet was widely available, virtually ALL of "online" was volunteer run (BBSes).

Commerce is not necessary for online community, and as far as I can tell it has only ever been a detriment.

LB: most netbooks were not-great computers in several ways but everyone who made a point of shitting on them in 2009-10 was doing so out of some form of elitism that haunts the culture of computing today. Communicating, writing, and other simple tasks should be easily manageable on ubiquitous, ultra affordable machines today.
