@aadil Hey! I didn't personally work on this project but if you send an email to email@example.com you'll get in touch with the proper person.
I wrote a guide to getting your terminal or vintage computer online with a '90s Lantronix device, https://famicoman.com/2020/08/22/get-your-vintage-computer-online-with-a-lantronix-uds10/
Finished migrating https://famicoman.com to Hugo and removed over a decade of WordPress cruft. I finally feel like I can blog again without being burdened by my platform.
@dokuja It's a WY55. I love the display on DEC terminals but never managed to find one at a good value. Wyse terminals seem to be less expensive overall and perform fairly well. The typeface isn't as pretty though.
I wrote a new thing: Connect a Wyse Terminal to a Raspberry Pi - https://famicoman.com/2020/08/03/connect-a-wyse-terminal-to-a-raspberry-pi/
@Nono I used the Hugo exporter plugin for WordPress. Worked fairly well but I had to fix a lot of image tags. I originally wanted to use Jekyll because I had experience with it, but that plugin didn't work with my WordPress version and jekyll's console-based export required a Ruby version I couldn't get easily on the old version of Debian I was using. Happy I went with Hugo though, it was pretty easy to pick up!
Migrated one of my old sites from WordPress to Hugo and found an awesome retro theme, https://obsoleet.com/

@natalie That is awesome! I didn't really care much about game play when I heard about retro.live, though I did hear that the project ceased when they couldn't overcome the latency and compression issues caused by VoIP.
All of the other aspects of XBAND are what I thought were the most interesting and I'd love to be able to use this hardware to access some of the social features.
I'd happily run/test your server implementation when it is ready. I'm no stranger to configuring ATAs!
@natalie As someone who owns the Genesis and SNES versions of the xband, can I ask what you are working on? I had hoped to make use of them with the now-defunct retro.live project but that seems to have disappeared within the past year.
I wrote a new thing: How to Join NPSTN, a VoIP Network for Telephone Collectors - https://famicoman.com/2020/07/28/how-to-join-npstn-a-voip-network-for-telephone-collectors/
@bunnyjane Sorry for replying over a year later, but someone just liked the parent toot and reminded me that this was actually a REAL company who would go on to make Sega VR! https://www.designnews.com/electronics-test/story-sega-vr-segas-failed-virtual-reality-headset Just putting this comment here for future digital archaeologists.
@manu Generally you need to be within a range for best results depending on what you're fetmenting. Most beer and sauerkraut like to be between around 65-72F while fermenting to get proper flavors (though you can still get a good product if you're off a bit). Too low a temp and the ferment can be incomplete, too high and it can ferment too fast giving off-flavors. Think of it like cooking a piece of meat: too low and it won't cook through, too high and you burn it.
Now playing with ham radio, Free/OpenBSD, retroputing, PBX, meshnets, gopher, BGP. Write for n-o-d-e.net, 2600, Lunchmeat, Exolymph, NeonDystopia.
