spent about 40 minutes trying to optimize my spatial partitioning code again this morning. still a lot of mystery garbage collection caused by converting floats to ints even though the procedure that does so has been memoized. also hash table access may also be a problem? I can't really tell. maybe alists would perform better.
the plants I ordered from http://www.edibleacres.org/ came in yesterday and I got them in the ground before work this morning. I love ordering from independent nurseries because they always throw in an extra plant or two. all the plants are new to me: fuki, turkish rocket, hyssop, welsh onion, bronze fennel, and hardy geranium.

things are going to get very, very bad.

Jeff Sessions has resigned. things are going to get even crazier.
my train broke down this morning so I spent an extra hour poking at my spatial partitioning code that I've been struggling to optimize. I was able to make a small step forward. I rewrote the function that moves and re-categorizes the partitions an object is in and now it can handle ~1000 moving objects at 60fps when collision detection is disabled. the next, and more difficult, challenge will be to optimize the collision detection algorithm. as of now performance tanks with ~150 objects.

a private gnu mailing list thread features a defense of black face and master/slave terminology. I'm done. so fucking done. I didn't think this new mailing list could possibly be worse than the other one, but here we are.
I mainly post about permaculture, woodworking, and free software.
