Results day! Averaged just under 80% this year, celebrating by hiding from people slightly less than usual
actually wait that’s not celebrating that’s terrifying what’s happening
and one more because reasons
Searching for the book ‘programming pearls’ and accidentally typing ‘programming perls’ IT WAS AN ACCIDENT I PROMISE
Sure, but surely that should just be a Safari update? If we’re at the point where improving a single app justifies a full OS upgrade then I think maybe it’s time for me to install Haiku and become a hermit.
New apple stuff! Time for one of those posts, in which I try to express my own opinions but end up saying the same thing as everybody else, but less eloquently.
- iOS - welcome redesign, multitasking looks very nice. Not sure about all the ultra-fine helvetica neue (that had its day, right?), especially on non-retina displays. New safari logo is ICKY.
- OS X - strange the redesign didn’t make it this far. I would have expected at least the remaining aqua-style controls, like title-bar-buttons, to have gone. Most of the changes seem to be app updates rather than core OS features which is a shame. Tabbed finder is interesting, but I can’t imagine actually using it for anything useful.
- New MacBook Airs - meh
- New Mac Pro - super interesting design, and looks very very powerful. Strange that it has AMD GPUs given that lots of people use these things for CUDA apps.
All in all a bit underwhelming, but then I’m not sure what I was hoping for.
Apparently simplex noise complexity is O(n^2) whereas classic perlin noise is O(2^n) for n dimensions, so on second thoughts imma just LOL NOPE
Found a 4D simplex noise class! I keep meaning to (attempt to) write a 4D perlin noise generator, but getting distracted.
