Hey, this zine that I worked on in out. NODE Vol 01, free digital release and physical preorder, n-o-d-e.net/nodevol01.html

This first volume is 150 pages long, and, it's packed with features on P2P projects, such as Dat, Beaker, Ricochet IM, Aether. There are tutorials showing projects like the new NODE Mini Server, 3D print long range wifi antennas, how to chat via packet radio, and how to Libreboot the Thinkpad X200. There's also a handy open source directory at the back, and more!

Got Sega Fish Life running on a Dreamcast thanks to Musée Bolo's archiving work and modifications by japanese-cake and megavolt85. This virtual aquarium previously ran on a limited number of rare, custom Dreamcast-based hardware units in Japan in the early 2000s.

Got a Philips CD-i a week ago with a few educational titles. Replaced the drive belt and the thing loads right up, plays burned games perfectly! Let me know if you happen to have a spare video expansion card laying around so I can watch CD-i digital video discs.

I've been maintaining a list of words coined by and just pushed a bunch of updates, available at fangl.es The URL is actually an example of one such word :)

Just updated my Philadelphia-based network infrastructure exploration site with new things I found on the street, networksofphilly.org

It also keeps an index of various surveillance-based info requests open with the city police.

Consider starting one for your city!

Relaunching a BGP testnet with a few friends. Results have been good so far! We establish tunnels with one another using OpenVPN, then run bird to advertise routes.

Fidonet and Usenet were the Fediverse, way before there was a fediverse.

At about the same time Fidonet was created, NSFNET was also launched.

A lot of people have forgotten that there has always been networks run by individuals and for individuals.

Awesome weekend news. I will be presenting the tutorial "An Introduction to Hardware Hacking with FreeBSD" at @eurobsdcon this year

Got some parts drawers so it's time to sort through my haul from back when Radio Shack closed.

Between 2007 and 2012 I started buying Xboxes which I would then softmod with different dashboards and run Linux, emulators, homebrew, xbmc, etc. on. These were great multi-purpose, networked boxes and I had plans of one day clustering a bunch. Then the Raspberry Pi came out and I sort of moved on to that.

I finally dug all of these up for a family photo.

3M should release sticky note packs with Outrun and Memphis Design palettes.
