Hey friends, I hope you are staying safe. Here are your links for the week:

  1. John Carmack plan files 📝 - Back in the 90s there was a practice of keeping notes in “.plan” (text) files, and there were protocols where you could query for them.

  2. Super Simple Takedown - The Collar Drag 🥋 - Knight Jiu-Jitsu is another great BJJ YouTube channel, and this video is a short introduction to an effective gi takedown.
  3. Fix Your Timestep! 🧮 - If you’re using a game engine the simulation and physics timing strategy is usually done for you. Even so, it’s useful to know more about how this works, and this article does a great job explaining it.
  4. Fixing Mass Effect black blobs on modern AMD CPUs 🚀 - This article describes the quest to fix a bug in a shipped PC game. There are hypotheses, experiments, and the whole process resembles fixing bugs in games in development.
  5. eDEX-UI, terminal emulator and system monitor inspired by sci-fi movies 🖥 - A fun way to make your computer look like something out of Tron, or just want to spice up your terminal work.
