Absence for gardening and learning Rust

With Spring comes the start of the gardening season, and I'll spend more time on that during the next months. Also I'm trying to learn a new programming language, Rust. My training project is FUSE filesystem for Linux, which is something I wanted to try since a long time. It's got such a  nerdy coolness factor to work on a file system, even that the world surely doesn't need another one. There are plenty and good ones for Linux. The Rust language core is very interesting too, teaches a lot about data flow, and how to avoid data related problems.

Gardening and learning Rust means that my Simutrans related activities will slow down or stop for a while. Unless something else pops up which I urgently want to work on, I expect to return to Simutrans work in autumn or winter.

Not an easy language indeed.
Now I'm playing with Vulkan.

Vulkan is probably easier than Romulan, though. :)


You need 1000 lines of code to draw a triangle on the screen in Vulkan.  And only if it isn't a fashion one.

The good news is that you need 1001 lines to draw two triangles.    ;D
