09:51 * McMartin emails a 10-line BASIC program to a dude in Boston so that he might experimentally determine some facts about the sound chip on the VIC-20.
09:51 * McMartin leads a strange life for a hobby programmer.

<@froztbyte>
heh
09:51
<@froztbyte>
a friend of mine fixes pinball machines
09:52
<@froztbyte>
and does various kinds of similar things with low-end sound boards, putting modern hax into them, rebuilding dead circuits, etc
09:52
<&McMartin>
Yeah
09:52
<@froztbyte>
well, I say "fixes pinball machines" a bit loosely, that's just one of the things
09:52
<&McMartin>
If my theory is correct, based on what he's seen and what I can make happen in emulators, this was a botch by CBM, even for 1980
09:53
<@froztbyte>
haha
09:53
<&McMartin>
It's a three-voice square wave generator, and it's got a master volume control.
09:53
<&McMartin>
But if you set the volume at max, *any given voice consumes the entire DAC's range*
09:54
<&McMartin>
So you get clipping, *with square waves*, if you turn on more than one voice.
09:54
<@froztbyte>
lulz
09:55
<&McMartin>
(Said 10-line program sets up a nice major C-E-G chord, and then slowly cranks the volume)

Ugh, some of these files I imported have incorrect line endings.

<@Tarinaky>
So. I'm going to be honest. I'm not seeing a lot of programmer jobs that line up with anything I've actually done as part of my degree.
23:25
<@Tarinaky>
I don't own a smartphone, and as such know nothing about movile dev.
23:25
<@Tarinaky>
I hate web dev.
23:25
<@Tarinaky>
So I'm not entirely sure what that leaves :/

Well above my pay expectations.

The desktop space isn't completely dead.
23:44
<&McMartin>
Shrink-wrap boxed software, maybe, but that's a subset.
23:45
<@Tarinaky>
I don't have any commercial experience but my personal experience with software is pretty much limited to the shrink-wrap boxed software space, more or less.
23:45
<@Tamber>
Butbutbut, ${SOFTWARE_CO_MANAGEMENT_MAGAZINE} said the desktop is dead and that Glorious Mobile Will Lead the Way Into the Shining Future!
23:46
<@Tamber>
...and, after that, Glorious WebApps.
23:46
<@Tarinaky>
I'd have researched mobile development but I couldn't find a smartphone in my price-range.
23:46
<@Tamber>
etc.

<&McMartin>
And he said that while his office hummed along with a variety of information technology systems that run on desktops or in back offices.
23:46
<&McMartin>
There is, admittedly, a lot less light between "backoffice software the user actually deals with" and "web app" these days.
23:47
<&McMartin>
(In that a desktop app will probably be using HTTP or HTTPS to communicate with the back office, and the "web app" part is just another front end for that)
23:48
<@Tamber>
Which is a jolly good idea, since you're not tied to a single vendor's client platform, as the web browser is uni*INTERNET EXPLORER 6 REQUIRED TO VIEW THE REST OF THIS TEXT*
