“In Kensington Market this past weekend and came across these Labyrinths made by HiMY SYeD….” – Augusta Avenue – Pedestrian Sunday – Toronto

Jo was kind enough to say hello and ask me a little bit about the Labyrinths I painted on Augusta Avenue during Pedestrian Sunday . . .

Wonderful surprise to see her in depth instagram post…

Thank you Jo!

Happy Walking!

In Kensington Market this past weekend and came across these labyrinths made by HiMY SYeD. ⁣ ⁣ As I learned from the artist, labyrinths were essential to ancient civilizations, the earliest ones built out of stone along the sea to capture fish as sustenance. ⁣ ⁣ To Himy, his labyrinths are a form of “urban acupuncture.” They encourage people to explore space, place, decision-making, choice, habit, and even perseverance. As some complete the path, others may cheat and break the course. It’s great that a simple urban intervention like this can create surprise, participation, and play🤸‍♂️⁣ ⁣ While a maze is meant to puzzle and confuse, the labyrinth will always lead you to its centre ❤️⁣ @pedestriansundays #toronto #kensingtonmarket #torontostreetart #chalk #urbanintervention #dontpowerwash #labyrinths

“The Infamous Pac-Man Level 256 Glitch…”

View this post on Instagram

The infamous Pac-Man level 256 glitch. The reason for the glitch is that the level counter in the original Pac-Man is stored as an 8-bit integer, meaning the highest value it can hold is 255. The level counter starts with 0 internally, but for calculating the fruit counter it adds 1; however, because of overflow, adding 1 to 255 would result in 0, and the game tries to count fruits from 1, causing the game to attempt to draw 256 fruit to the screen until it overflows to 0. The result is the garbled mess on the right side of the maze, because the screen memory starts with the bottom, followed by the columns from the right side.-Nick- . . #pacman #puckman #8bit #blinky #nintendo #namco #atari #80s #maze #ghost #blipblip #eatingfruit #glitch #basementwizards
