This is my first step toward reducing the power of centralized social networking systems. Go Internet!

Watch Jeopardy tonight, if you get a chance. You won't regret it.

@fuuko Thank you. It would be great if you made the distinction that SDF has continually operated since 1987. There is evidence of ted ('iczer') playing around with the BBS idea as early as 1985, but we celebrate June 16th, 1987 as SDF's birthday and when the first 214-352-xxxx dialup number for SDF was published. This happens to be Ted's birthday and the phone line was a gift to him from his mother.

Fanfic I want to read: Greek epics crossover to sci-fi & fantasty.

For instance:

A sci-fi story where Achilles is rescued by a time traveller just after he's shot in the heel. She pulls him forward to the 22nd century for a job that could only be solved by the greatest warrior in human history.

Gimme!

The rewrite of the official Project Gutenberg Gopher Frontend will kick into high gear once I have some days off (and proper sleep). I aim to have it harvest text book files locally for servers with a local copy, or curl from PG if you do not -- all served via gopher:// stay tuned.

Why can Unicode add infinity million emoji but we still don't have a proper Copyleft or Public Domain glyph?

Any programming language is at its best before it is implemented and used.

I'd like to put together an ultra-cheap raspberry portable, self-contained system. Huge bonus if I can power it, but not required. System needs a display & keyboard input. Needs wifi. I was eyeing up the pi zero w and solar systems, but there's too much noise out there. Anyone got experience with these?

I got my Amateur Radio Technicians license this morning, and ordered "My First Ham Radio" this afternoon! I believe in balancing between centralized systems (for efficiency) and decentralized systems (for freedom and robustness). I'm excited to have my own access to communications; just need someone to talk to! :-P

@tomasino I'll start with the good news: I had forgotten- it's not an Indy, but an Indigo²! Bad news: I forgot the display port wasn't VGA/DVI and didn't see the cable immediately, so I can't check it out yet.
