Heartbeat – Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Peerchemist (one of the Peercoin developers) made an interesting transaction today: https://twitter.com/peerchemist/status/1001747842451562497. It’s always exciting when something runs “in production” for the first time 🙂

News from The Washington Post:

  • “Roseanne” is cancelled after Roseanne makes a racist tweet.
  • Terrible flood in Ellicott City, Maryland.

Jogged around Kezar Stadium twice. Came back to discover a package from Pi Supply!

And here’s a piece of the painting from Croatia that keeps me company in “the back office”:

Signed up for all the insurances ($$$$!) 🙂

Finished making the automated test suite for pypeerassets pass. There’s some heavy global state in the btcpy library that forced me to “punt” on fixing some tests, marking them as “known to fail”. We’ll have to work on btcpy more.

Heartbeat – Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Returned from a nice weekend in Santa Rosa, California. We celebrated a wedding, wandered around the town and drove through beautiful Sonoma County.

Thanks to LastPass I was able to log in to this blog and install some much needed software updates. I also setup Akismet for the first time even though I purchased it a few years back. The amount of spam comments on an obscure, dormant internet blog is surprisingly large!

I started working on a project called PeerAssets a couple of weeks ago. A small team of us is pushing forward to realize the functionality described in the White Paper. In other Peercoin news, I bought a piece of art from Croatia with peercoins. I’ll have to attach an image 🙂 I’ve also placed some orders at https://uk.pi-supply.com/ but am still waiting to see if packages arrive from England.

My work on Primecoin has been slow and murky. Although I still plan on evolving the C++ code base I might start from scratch on a Visual C# Windows implementation and build “from the ground up”.

Mario 2 for the NES came up today. I remember liking the soundtrack 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHCjsrmMVMs
