One of things that makes 15-year-old Mac OS X on 15-year-old PowerMacintoshes still usable is Sevan's pkgsrc repository, with stuff like mc-4.8, gcc-6, python-3.6 or perl-5.26. Now it's back online!

Thanks to /prog/'s SICP meme, there are no short of anime girls with programming language books. But other topics such as infosec or electronics are completely absent, making them a bit boring. Perhaps it would be good idea to use some image processing algorithm (just call GIMP or OpenCV?) to perform the job automatically...
