My Raspberry Pi PBX now runs through 10base5 thicknet because why not?

I've been doing some and other related stuff over quarantine. Here are some of my results: Cucumber pickles, sourdough starter, chipotle hot sauce, sauerkraut... (1/2)

Hey all, happy to announce that NODE Vol 02 is out featuring 180 pages of articles and interviews about P2P and open hardware projects, with an updated Open Source Directory and new Meshnet Atlas! Download a digital version for free or preorder a hard copy

Flashed the BIOS on my Thinkpad x230 with coreboot via skulls and an RPi, and popped in an SSD. Now that the whitelist is gone, I'm upgrading the wireless card next!

Want a cheap 1G Rock64 with 8GB SanDisk Ultra card, power/Ethernet cables, LCD display, and funky case? Get one of these liquidated Recon devices for $15 (marked down from $150) shipped online.

Spent some time replacing the battery and upgrading the storage on my 15-year-old iPod Video. From a 30GB disk to 256GB microSD, everything was plug-and-play, and the only tool I needed was a guitar pick. The SD card plays nice with Rockbox firmware, too (as far as I can tell).

XBAND modems for the SNES and Sega Genesis worked as passthrough carts that patch code for selected games allowing multiplayer over phone lines in a way that emulated controllers connected locally. The service is long gone, but people have been reverse-engineering the protocol!

Got a Digital Video Cart for the Philips CD-i. This was the first version to support both the green book and white book CD standards, and was the only version to use the Gate Array 3 chipset, which could cause some artifacting. This cart was needed for some games, and all VCDs.

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.
