Fantasy universe in which people build "wands" using obsolete microcontrollers to perform reality glitching feats, and the "spellbooks" are just notepads detailing how to run each program.

@Jo i’ve been reading old old magic books and uhm… it kinda reads like that’s exactly what they’re doing. old descriptions of “magic” sound pretty much like the modern “maker” stuff. but the clincher was finding out that “magic” and “make” are both corrupted pronounciations of the same older word.

@Jo my head canon is that a bunch of magical feats are stories about time travellers. and “praying” came about from copying the time travellers looking at their phones.

@Jo i definitely want to try to make that a reality universe
