Post a screenshot of your current cool/cute wallpaper! Both desktop and phone caps are ok!

I'll start with some vaporwave vibes.

Tried my hand at making a cool desktop, what do you think?

Very nice! Although Lain automatically makes things look good. Here's mine, using a page from YKK. It's not fancy by any means, but it works.

A gift for you sushi roll. If you would like it of course.
Whats in the crapawa shitjou files?


The game itself. I've also got Zork, as you can see, and K-On Desktop Buddies. Thank you for the wallpaper!

2 new homescreens later, I've been working on this one. I'm still not too sure about colours and positioning yet, but it usually takes me a while to tweak everything to satisfaction

Resurrecting this thread out of the .tokyo archives. Any sushi rolls here own a VR headset? Any rolls just curious about them? What games/experiences are you trying these days? Any small projects that you would recommend trying?

The last thread was made just as the two main PC headsets (Oculus Rift and Vive) were coming out in 2016. In the two years since, we've seen slow but constant growth in both headset sales and the number of available games. In addition, the lineup of Windows Mixed Reality headsets is making room-scale VR with hand tracking more affordable than ever. Beat Saber is helping to push VR to arcades across the country and I really hope this is the time when VR makes it to the mainstream.

"VR" headsets still kind of suck based on what I've tried. I'm waiting a few more generations till we get 8k resolutions at least, plus things like millimeter wave antennae built in for high bandwidth wireless. The SLAM they use could be updated as well, probably would make sense to use something like solid state lidar for that compared to the finicky webcam tracking systems they currently use.

Also, if this isn't too off topic, is anyone here interested in AR headsets as well as VR headsets? Magic leap recently finally started shipping their devkits, and while it's not anywhere near as good as the hype, it's a step up from the hololens in terms of FOV. Another generation or two of increased FOV and lighter weight and I could almost imagine using something like this to replace my phone.


Any wiki needs out there? I just set up a MediaWiki instance and I’m having a lot of fun. I will post a link if anyone is interested in sand boxing around.

Do any of you know PHP? If so, do you have any recommendations for learning it? I'm not new to programming or web development in general, but I started learning Node instead of older shit like LAMP.

Let's talk coding and software, sushis, because I don't do enough of it and I really should. Let's hear about projects you're working on, stuff your coding, learning. Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

I guess if we need a thread starter, I want to brush up on my coding skills. I want to find something to play around with, something not as mainstream as the stuff like Java and C, but will still be useful in a professional setting, something I can make usable stuff out of.

You don't know how happy that makes me. Thank you for saying so, sushi. Unfortunately you cannot expect new music for a while because I work on it quite slowly, so maybe check back into unraed.uk in a year or so.

(Saging because off-topic, btw)

I'm working on a Jekyll theme.

Here is a minimal [code]_config.yml[/code]:

hey sushis. recently i've been looking at taisei (open source touhou clone). the graphics are surprisingly good, the soundtrack is great and the codebase seems to be really clean and organized. I don't know too much C but I'm hoping I can figure out something to do and contribute! anyone know anything about this project?

in other related news: I finished a really quick mangadex downloader in python. figured out their new api and just downloads chapters in parallel and tries to do padding so you can just `feh -r` a directory. Can post code if anyone is curious, I'm frequently without internet so I like to download most of my media.

Looks nice. I like the use of color to separate different fields.

hey, that's great! what program did you make? I think learning haskell made my code in other languages better, I try to be more pure/shorter functions and so on now.

I think a game is a really good project to start because it involves a lot (video, audio, math, concurrency) and you can easily think of ideas for new features/modes/power-ups etc. A fun one I like to suggest is the game from Tron (kind of like multiplayer snake–you grow by 1 in the direction you face each turn, if you hit another snake's body, you lose). You can even do it over the internet with websockets for extra difficulty.

Re: Haskell vs. OCaml
If your interests are in functional programming proper then stick with Haskell. The learning curve is a steep one but if you have no other programming experience and a knack for the abstract then your fresh perspective will make it easier to grasp for a first timer I think.

I actually love (and use) ML more but the community and enthusiasm for modern FP is definitely in Haskell land.

I would also recommend a look at functional style Javascript if you just want a taste of FP, in a language that has seemingly endless educational and discussion materials.

Completely unrelated but for ages I've been using my Rust implementation of AWK (another favourite language) but now I'm wanting to radically redefine the language design itself. Sacriligeous I know. I doubt anything will come of it but I sure think about it a lot.

I don't have it but I guess you could shop it over the same image, since it's gonna be shopped anyway?


I almost never use floating mode but it looks nice for screenshots. Included my vim config since that's where I spend most of my time (just finished the mangadex downloader you see).

pic1 very expensive pricing unless that's 2012 something


it's obviously super old, those laptops have Windows XP on them


Probably not too long after Ika Musume came out. So maybe 2011?

RIP Terry. For those of you who don't know, he was a schizophrenic programmer who wrote his own operating system from scratch. It was called TempleOS. He was known for being weird and saying funny and offensive things. He livestreamed a lot. He was banned from many different social media platforms.

At one point, he was writing software for TicketMaster machines, but his mental illness got the best of him and he had a mental breakdown and moved back in with his parents, living on disability income. He spent a decade making his operating system, but had fights with his parents and eventually became homeless. And now he's gone.

A genius like him had so much potential, if only he had gotten help for his mental health problems.

Rest in peace, Terry.

Man, that sucks. It's been confirmed now, still a lot of unanswered questions though. What was he doing in front of a train? He was a devout christian, can't imagine him killing himself. There was also apparently some guy who was impersonating him and stealing dontion money, I don't know much about it. I guess it doesn't matter now, RIP Terry.


Rest In Peace, Christian Soldier.

I was thinking it would be nice if we had a thread for sharing our own websites/homepages. Woah, here's one now! Show me your netspace sushi!

Here's mine. It's a complete mess, but I like it. It's kind of new well, technically it's existed for a little while, but I only started working on it recently, so it's missing a lot of things, and there are a few links that 404. Though it's hosted on neocities, it's only slighty Lain themed.

I wish I could have a cool site like OP :(


File: 1535858774729.gif (1008.02 KB, 500x376, radikewl.gif)

Neocities gives you free website hosting and also has tutorials on how to build a website, just do your best sushi roll!

Guide to making a cool site like mine:
1. Steal lots of images
2. Steal lots of music
3. Find a chimp with ADHD and a basic knowledge of HTML
4. Now your site is so cool that you don't even need to add your own content!


This is like a description of all web 2.0 serverside operations.

4chan is #1 archenemy in South Korea


Arrest of a man suspected of threatening to assassinate the US ambassador to Seoul
SEOUL, July 24 (Yonhap) - A 30-year-old man posted a message on the White House website on July 8, threatening to assassinate the US ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, and he was arrested by the Seoul Police Agency (SMPA), it was reported this Friday.

This message of 10 lines, considered illogical and incoherent by the police, was also posted on the American Internet portal 4chan by this man.
