Just had a vision of a hacker blog where the author starts out writing in the most godawful VB6 spaghetti, gets some sort of brain operation and subsequent blog postings are like Linux booting in RISC-V implemented in Conway's Game of Life. Then suddenly a mouse dies and the quality gradually reverts back to how cool the <BLINK> tag is in HTML.


I suspect that too. Note that FFmpeg was also published under a pseudonym GĂ©rard Lantau.
