When I originally started pyherc, I had very vague idea about the setting and the backstory. Over the time I modified them a bit and tried to narrow things down. This blog post will be about how the world stands currently.
I haven’t been writing much about hy recently, so it’s time to change it (albeit this will be short one).
I was working on society generation, where the system would generate whole socities (villages to be specific), inhabited with people. These people could be part of various factions or secret socities and have their own agendas. Moreover, some of them might have powerful artifacts or other special items, that would have history attached to them.
Being somewhat fan of both the difference and analytical engines, The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage by Sydney Padua sounded like a book I definitely should read. It tells a story of polymath Charles Babbage, mathematician-writer Countess of Lovelace (better known as Ada Lovelace) and their ingenious analytical engine in graphical novel format. Since analytical engine was never built, the story is set in the alternative universe.
I had had Lost Battles by Philip Sabin sitting on my shelf for a quite long time, but only recently got around reading it properly. I originally picked up the book, because I was interested on the authors novel way of examining ancient battles. Instead of postulating ifs and if-nots, they build a model that can be used to simulate these battles.
I haven’t been writing much here recently. Partly due to starting a new job (after busy day I just want to relax) and partly due to playing lots and lots of Crusader Kings 2 (not quite sure if this is that relaxing game though). But I have been tinkering with some code and other stuff on my spare time still.
One of those other stuff – projects is Hy Files. As far as I know, there hasn’t been an attempt to write a book about Hy before. Initially I wanted this to be a neatly laid out pdf or even physical book, but quickly realized that by the time I would get around finishing it, the Hy would be really different language. So I decided to publish what little I had gotten written and make it a living book. Sources are available at GitHub and I plan to keep on chipping this on my spare time.
It’s spring again (or rather almost summer, depending on where you live) and one chapter is closing again while another one opens. In a short, I’m changing jobs. On the last day of the April, I was still emplyed at Tieto Corporation. On the first day of the May, I’m emplyed at Adafy.
