@neauoire Have you ever considered HF ham radio for your boat? It'd be wild to PSK31 chat with you.
long post, retrocomputing
Inspired by some exchanges with @neauoire as well as my own NES "how it's done" labs, I'm taking up a project I'm calling "everyday #retrocomputing". My goal is to do my everyday stuff from a #6502 based machine. Step 1 today was to get some kind of emulator working with a TCP/IP stack. After some hemming and hawwing, I got GSPort building on modern Linux and got its network stack working! With a basic telnet client, I can have the rest of the project bootstrapped.
Heya, #signsandcodes gang! We're now upgraded to Mastodon 3.2.0, all the latest and greatest to our hearts' contoot!

I'm really wanting to sink my teeth into a new #retrogaming or #retrocomputing project, but I'm having a hard time deciding what. I don't have tons of free time, so it needs to be achievable on fairly limited time. I can always go back to coding up more NES 6502 assembly demos, but something more hands-on would be more engaging.
Ooookay! #signsandcodes is, at least in theory, now upgraded to Mastodon v3.1.5, which should leave us sitting easy when v3.2.0 stabilizes. Better media uploads, better search, better moderation. It's a new day!
#signsandcodes I'm getting ready to upgrade us onto Mastodon 3.0 and, hopefully, to the 3.1 version series. During this time, we'll be on a short outage. Wish me luck!
I wrote a thing on my (mostly tired) feelings about #InternationalNonbinaryDay (and other queer days of visibility). I'd love for a lot of people to read it. https://zigg.com/2020/the-drain-of-self-advocacy.html
Hey, #signsandcodes! Sorry for the short outage today. We ran out of space on the disk, in part because of the backups I left lying around from the upgrades. We should be back to working condition now.
#signsandcodes gang, please note that you can now do away with the Tweetdeck-style multi-column format if you want! To do so, edit your Preferences. In the "Appearance" section, un-check the box that says "enable advanced web UI". You'll have a single-column UI after that.
