I realized that I never wrote my #introductions, so here it goes.
I'm a Python programmer working on open source. After hours I do whatever is my current obsession, so far I have gone through: #wiki, #drawing, #typography, #roguelike #gamedev, #pygame, miniature #painting, #tinwhistle and #ocarina music, #arduino, walking #robots, #rcheli, #electronics, #microbit, #micropython, #circuitpython, homebrew game handhelds.
Okay, all the people who ask for ways of protecting your code from being viewed by others: nobody is going to look at your code unless they really, really have to. It's much easier to write code than to read it. It's very, very much easier to re-create your stupid scripts, but without the bugs you have in them, than to modify your unmaintainable pile of snippets you copy-pasted from Stack Overflow and changed until it ran without an immediate error. Or to fix the bugs in it.
Remember how smartphones were supposed to be the killers of portable game consoles? Why would you need a separate device, when your phone already has more games you could possibly play, for free, and all the emulators for all the existing consoles on top of that?
And yet here we are, with at least 5 different new "retro" game consoles announced just this year. Could it be that just as the Personal Computer is morphing into a phone, TV set, tablet, PDA and laptop, so is the smartphone differentiating?
