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!

There should be a wiki for gaming console modchips. Talk about a scene filled with highly-technical people that has almost no long-term documentation. There is nowhere I can go to get a list of original Xbox modchips produced, yet alone install guides, images, technical details, info on how they work, etc.

Here's the card catalog cabinet at my parents'. What should I do with it?

Is there a zine that's like, prepping but for collectivists? As in "when the 18-wheelers stop coming, here's what to do." How to grow food in soil you can't test, how to make abandoned buildings livable, how to maintain and create organization with your neighbors, food preservation, medicine, etc

Something you can stash in a drawer for just-in-case, to keep your neighbors alive in case of collapse. I'd definitely buy one

I found this graphic about how long different storage media should last. From the same article:

"Another aspect of SD card reliability is data retention time, that is the period during which information on a card is maintained. Flash memory is susceptible to a gradual drift of cell voltage, which can result in bit errors. ...flash memory found in most SD cards today has a retention time of about 5 years. ...SD cards are not intended for long-term storage... "

If you were impacted by the #matrix outage please consider standing up a Synapse instance and help decentralize. I've been running one for a couple of weeks and it is stable, low-maintenance software so far.

Pulled out an old issue of Wired with an article I wanted to read. Who can identify which issue is missing?
