Warning: C64 geek pr0n! A Mind Is Born

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/20

Geek pr0n on the C64:

Making a demo in just 256 bytes would be a formidable challenge regardless of platform. A Mind Is Born is my attempt to do it on the Commodore 64. In the absence of an actual 256-byte compo, it was submitted to the Oldskool 4K Intro compo at [WayBackRevision 2017, where it ended up on 1st place.

use vmrun – via How do I find the IP address of a virtual machine using VMware Fusion? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/20

Note this works only when the VMs have VMware Tools installed (more on that below):

VMWare provides, not surprisingly, a built in tool for this, vmrun. It’s under /Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun although it has moved around in other Fusion releases a bit.

🍺 vmrun list Total running VMs: 1 .docker/machine/machines/myvm.vmx
🍺 vmrun getGuestIPAddress ~/.docker/machine/machines/myvm.vmx 172.16.213.128

via: How do I find the IP address of a virtual machine using VMware Fusion? – Super User [WayBack]

vmrun [WayBack] is barely documented and most of is in PDF of which this is the most recent I could find: www.vmware.com/pdf/vix180_vmrun_command.pdf [WayBack]

Based on the above path, I added this to my ~/.bash_profile file:

alias vmrun='/Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun'
alias vmrun-list-running-VMs='vmrun list | grep vmx'
vmrun-list-ipv4-of-running-VMs()
{
  vmrun-list-running-VMs | while read line ; do echo $line && vmrun getGuestIPAddress $line; done
}

Now I can do this:

$ vmrun-list-ipv4-of-running-VMs
/Users/jeroenp/VM/W81Entx64DelphiRegression.vmwarevm/W81Entx64.vmx
172.16.172.135

/Users/jeroenp/VM/W81Entx64DelphiRegression.vmwarevm/W81Entx64.vmx
172.16.172.142

These are the messages I observed:

Error: The VMware Tools are not running in the virtual machine: /Users/jeroenp/VM/diaspore-opensuse-Tumbleweed-x64.vmwarevm/diaspore-opensuse-Tumbleweed-x64.vmx

The first one means a machine is running but has no VMware Tools installed. For an OpenSuSE machine you can install it with zypper install open-vm-tools, for other Linux systems read VMware Tools auf Ubuntu, Mint, CentOS oder openSUSE installieren | ITrig [WayBack]

Some more examples of vmrun for VMware Fusion are at Control VMware Fusion from the Command Line | James Reuben Knowles [WayBack]

Dark corners of Unicode / fuzzy notepad

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/20

You think you know Unicode? Think again, then read [Wayback] Dark corners of Unicode / fuzzy notepad.

On basics, sorting, comparison, decomposition, composition, width, whitespace, encoding, emoji, interesting code planes and dark corners. Lots of dark corners.

The examples are in Python, but hold for almost any programming language
