  1. Such a bizarre choice not to do the battery, not ultimate at all

  2. Welcome front lol

    It looks like a fungus, screen fungus? Screen-conway's game of life? Screen localized contiguous cascade pixel failure? Lol. I have no idea whats going on there, but in terms of algorithm it looks like the pixels are dying contigiously, that is they die because they are in contact with other dead pixels, resulting in that connected squiggle pattern. Given the gaps in the middle it seems like the likelihood of killing a pixel from 2-4 surrounding dead pixels is not significantly higher than that of just 1 surrounding dead pixel. Could pretty easily code that and see if it generates similar shapes, not that that would help lol

    It also seems to act much like an air bubble under a screen protector, maybe its something like that? Screen film separation would probably beget more nearby separation, and perhaps its on such a low level that it can interact with the physical pixel delineations?

  3. Looks like somebody ran Conway's Game Of Life, left it on for 1-3 days and threw it away.

  4. hey matt, i love the new olive 0.2 update, but the nodes are slightly too complex for me. could you make it so the traditional version is there, and the nodes are an advanced option? that would be great thanks

  26. That screen looks pretty snazzy. Now imagine them doing an OLED version 😀

  27. PLEASE do part 3 for the chargeable battery!!!

  28. I managed to find a Pocket of my own today, and the dead rot is just a teeny bit at the very top of the screen, so I can just ignore it and play, but man is it cool to have such a Piece of history
