On today’s episode of stupid races between old computery things: A brute force tree solver on a Commodore 128 in 80 column mode vs a VIC-20. The 128 is easier to visualize what it’s doing, but as expected, WAY slower. #commodore #VICtober

I figured out the problem with my MiniPET/SD card access. This connector is already not making good contact. Going to work on a way to extend the base of my setup so that it’s not just hanging off the end. Or maybe just put feet on it. #commodore

This is a REALLY excellent book. I’ve been going through this a chapter at a time. Very little changes to get the code to work on Commodore machines too although I’ve mostly been using the Apple IIe. Great primer to modern AI techniques if you can believe that. I give it an 11/10
