Poems for bugs



This was my seminar at Revision 2013, advertised as follows:

Platforms come and go, but the C64 remains.

This is a seminar about the beauty of C64 coding, how it relates to other human endeavours, and why it is as culturally relevant as ever. We will see how, for thousands of years, people have meticulously crafted works of art in a waning tradition that, perhaps unexpectedly, lives on through C64 coding.

While there are clear connections between the demoscene and the visual arts and music, little has been said about the literary skills of the coder. Skills that, unfortunately, have lost their significance on modern platforms.

Don’t miss this extraordinary programming seminar for coders and non-coders alike.

    Why hasn't moog hired you to work for them? You could make them bucket loads of money with your ridiculous amount of talent at everything. Hell, they could release the chipophone with your help c64 Jesus.

    Re: the bug state diagram, surely some memory is required to track the position of the food outside the hole in order the be able to select between the "food (not) at expected spot" rules.

    Last year, in 9th grade, I had started using the Axe Compiler for the calculator. While it isn't quite as powerful as machine code, it could be used to make very impressive programs. I recall how in chemistry class all my friends were impressed with the rotating column effect I managed to write 🙂

    Very interesting. You show we code demos on C64 with the assembly language but I think there are higher level languages supported (like BASIC or Lisp). If demo coders use these high level languages is it easier to remove this annoying border ?

    For a while I thought he walked behind the screen for some bizarre reason. Then I realized it was an overlay on the video…

    It's part of the theme of this year's Revision, where there was a good bot and an evil bot.

    Yeah, but with off-the-shelf hardware this time. =) It's just an OpenGL hack, really.

    Kul med nya videos, tack för det.
    Har du inga coola nya projekt på gång som du vill dela med dig av?
    Vad händer med chipophonen?

    I'm from a completely different field, but this presentation was very interesting; even for a simple mind like mine the general thought was understandable (I think). Very cool, I learned a lot.
    Is there a certain software, the talk was illustrated with? Or is this a custom tool?

    I like how minorities in general population may become an impressive majority when attending such (nice) seminar.
