@neauoire Have you ever considered HF ham radio for your boat? It'd be wild to PSK31 chat with you.

Okay, Fediverse. I want to do some blogging, I want my blog to be fully readable in lynx, and I refuse to use WordPress. Can anyone recommend a blogging engine?

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 ". 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.

12:45. Restate my assumptions. One. You lock the target. Two. You bait the line. Three. You slowly spread the net. Four. You catch the man.

You said "I'm feeling fine," but it didn't really rhyme with the word "overseas".

Heya, gang! We're now upgraded to Mastodon 3.2.0, all the latest and greatest to our hearts' contoot!

After far too many months away from it, I finally added NES 6502 instructional labs for playing with the audio synthesizers and reading from the controls! #6502

I'm really wanting to sink my teeth into a new or 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.

being a senior software engineer means being able to architect an entire end-to-end application in your head but having to Google how to check if a JS array contains an element because you can only remember how to do it in three other languages

Ooookay! 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!

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 can't stress enough how much joy I get from a quick swim in my pool on summer days.

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. zigg.com/2020/the-drain-of-sel

Weird fact about me-- I'm a cricket fan (go West Indies!). Since your average US cricket fan is likely Indian, when big cricket matches are on, I see a *lot* of advertisements for what is a presumably Indian immigrant/expat audience. It's interesting to observe.

Hey, ! 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.

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.
