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.

If you missed your chance to purchase a physical copy of the NODE VOL 01 zine, there are now slightly damaged copies available at a reduced price, n-o-d-e.shop/products/node-vol

From my understanding, the front/back covers may be bent, scratched up, etc. but the contents are very much intact and legible.

I'm playing Quake III Arena over the Internet with others courtesy of a Raspberry Pi running DreamPi, a modem, and a Dreamcast with the standard dialup network adapter. This is nuts.

@socalledunitedstates This might be a cool format for a solarpunk zine. Their example article could stand as it's own little piece of distributable media, and they emphasize that each article can have unique formatting, styling, etc.

I stumbled upon this co new indie zine project called Paged Out! A new experimental (one article == one page) free magazine about programming (especially programming tricks!), hacking, security, retro computers, modern computers, electronics, demoscene, and other similar topics. pagedout.institute

If I can think of a good one-page article I might submit it.

The Atomic Pi is alive! Though it lacks a power indicator LED. This $35 x86-64 board has a quad-core Intel cherry trail processor. For mesh things, it benches yggdrasil very well, cjdns not so much.
