in thread Curious about Perl's strengths in 2018

I built a full-blown indoor grow room environment controller automation system, a couple pan/tilt mechanisms for my RPi wildlife infrared cameras, various other small things, but the majority of my Pis are in my lab in various states of testing new ICs, sensors and random project ideas.

I also have one that acts as my media centre, and as well as the media centre client systems, and one for retro gaming (I still love the old 8-bit NES games).

    I've gone down the rabbit hole of Amiga emulation:

    https://github.com/readyready15728/misc/blob/master/amiga-emulation.md

    I've even managed to get an emulated Amiga to play MP3 audio with total fidelity (with the aid of the JIT system in FS-UAE), as detailed in that Markdown. I will most likely eventually go down the rabbit hole of Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum emulation as well. I was born in 1988 so these things are entirely new and fascinating for me.

    On a related note I wrote a ratings scraper for the most single comprehensive abandonware site (My Abandonware) because they don't have detailed sorting functionality:

    https://github.com/readyready15728/scrapers

    Included is a static output dump of the two scrapers (the other is for a demoscene website) which is less than two weeks old. I scraped a lot of genres, platforms etc. and it took a long time to get all the ratings so the dump was included for convenience.
