@liw other people are still beta testing wayland for me
@szbalint it's a good 'un
@alex some of the highest flighers I've known made damn sure to have a reputation of being unreliable at email, early.
@fraggle more than anything else this inspires me to churn out wadc based megawads
I contacted the Computer History Museum and paid them a small fee to have them scan the first 9 RFCs. I'm happy to say those scans are now online.
My post with interesting excerpts and things I learned looking at the scans: https://write.as/365-rfcs/update-scans-of-early-rfcs
The listing of the scans in their catalog, with a link to the PDF: https://www.computerhistory.org/collections/catalog/102661172

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
@aparrish that's a signal detector I think, in signal processing (not an expert)
I should probably post some of my #amiga nerdery on mastodon
@eevee that's a better unpacking than the real one (was compiler, which doesn't really compile). I wrote a haskell reimplementation if that sounds interesting (called "liquorice")
@revenant I keep an eye on ponos on ebay
@revenant I follow so few people on mastodon so far, that you account for 90% of the toots I see
@revenant can it emulate an m68k?
@liw it's a git-annex powered, crowd sourced effort to back up Internet archive. Joey was involved in some way
@liw hehe backups hehe
Generalistic and moderated instance.
