OSDev.org • View topic - VGA colors in 80x25 text mode?


This is some bullshit. Text palette registers 0-7 map to VGA palette registers 0-7, with the exception of register 6 which maps to VGA palette register 20. Registers 8-16 map to registers 56-64.

I learnt that pulse width modulation produces flicker -- imagine a 50% duty cycle of half on, half off -- whereas the more general pulse density modulation does not -- imagine the same amount of total on/off time, but divided more finely.

Theodoros Kolokotronis - Wikipedia


This dude liberated Nafplio (from the Ottoman Empire) and then was imprisoned in Palamidi Fortress *in the city he liberated* (and now the capital of Greece, for a while) for being a traitor by the new (and 17-year-old) Bavarian King Otto of Greece! Shit sucks.

To be clear, he was extremely anti-Bavaria and a proponent of an independent Greece. He was only freed due to public outcry.

What a life.

Butter Soy Sauce Pasta with Japanese Mushrooms


Simple recipe using the butter + soy sauce combo. Turned out really nice -- comfortingly salty and creamy.

Also, it's hardly a recipe -- just mix the melted butter with some soy sauce in the pan, blend to emulsify, and add some pasta water to taste. Oh, and cook pasta for the last minute or so in the pan to get it nice and glazed.

Video Games Are Giving Up On The Idea We Can Save The World


“Emancipatory politics must always destroy the appearance of a ‘natural order’, must reveal what is presented as necessary and inevitable to be a mere contingency, just as it must make what was previously deemed to be impossible seem attainable.” – Mark Fisher

This quote from the comments reified the vague feelings of unease I have at the doom and gloom around climate change. If you truly believe that nothing can be done, then you will do nothing.
